How to test the hair falling

Although more and more people fall in love with makeup brushes with 100% synthetic hair, many traditional makeup artists still prefer brushes with natural hair, as it can somewhat achieve prefect makeup due to the excellent powder holding capacity.
Comparing with synthetic hair, natural hair has one obvious disadvantage, that is, hair falling. Just like human hairs, natural hairs may break or fall off, so after some period of application and cleaning/washing, we may find that some hairs fall off from the brush.
If the fall-off is serious and too many, it is quality problem, users should contact the makeup brush factory or supplier for replacements or any other potential solution.
Here, we would like to introduce how we avoid hair falling during production and inspection:
During the makeup brush production, we firstly mold the natural hair shape, and then glue the hairs into ferrules to get the brush head ; after the glue is dry out, we will firstly comb the brush head by machine to remove the mess/extra hair.Also, before shipment, we will inspect the brushes to ensure no hair falling, the inspector will whisk the brushes for about 20-30 times, if the hair falling is too much, the brushes will be rejected; if only several hairs falling off, it is normal. Of course, we cannot keep whisking the brushes, due to the characters of natural hair, 20-30 times will be enough.
So after getting your new makeup brushes, we can check the brushes by ourselves- whisking the brush heads for 20-30 times to check if it is qualified.

Goat hair in different season

Goat hair is the most popular natural hair used on powder brushes, eyeshadow brushes etc. Most users should know that goat hair has many grades, such as XGF goat hair, ZGF goat hair etc.

Generally speaking, XGF goat hair is the softest and best, so during customizing makeup brushes, many customers will require XGF goat hair for their brushes. However, sometimes, they may find that the softness of two makeup brushes both with XGF goat hair may not be the same, or sometimes, not softer than ZGF goat hair. So they doubt that they are cheated by the makeup brush manufacturer.
In fact, as a kind of natural hair, goat hair is just like human hairs. In winter, the goat hair is thicker and rougher; in spring, after hair lossing, the new born hair will be much softer. So sometimes ZGF goat hair may be softer than XGF goat hair. We distinguish different goat hair grades not only by softness but also hair tips and powder holding capacity.
Therefore, to customize makeup brushes with private label, it will be the best to send us physical samples to show us the exact hairs you want. Firstly, customers may not so familiar with the hairs, and may have some misjudgment on the hair types; Secondly, the previous makeup brush suppliers may cheat you on the hair material; thirdly even with the same hairs, the feeling will be different in different season.

How to avoid ferrule oxidation

As an essential part of makeup brushes, ferrules take an important role in makeup brushes, it connects both hairs and handles. Even for some brushes that without ferrules, they are just invisible, ferrules are still included in the brushes.

However, as a metal material, the ferrules are easily to be oxidized, especially in damp environment. Even the human sweat may lead to oxidation. But during the makeup brush assembly and inspection, we must touch the ferrules. Then, how to avoid the oxidation during the assembly and inspection:
1. Assembly- during ferrule production, we will firstly cover a protective film on the ferrule, and during assembly, workers will wear cotton gloves to avoid of sweat on ferrules.
2. Inspection- after the makeup brushes are finished, we must remove the film on the ferrule and do the inspection. All inspectors will wear cotton gloves during inspection in case of oxidation.


We can only avoid of oxidation from our side as the makeup manufacturer. After getting makeup brushes especially with copper ferrule, users should store the brushes in dry environment. And after each cleanning of brushes, users should not store them until completely air drying.

How to distinguish latex and non-latex sponge

In our previous article of the production process of beauty blender, we showed the production process of non-latex beauty blender.
It is known that latex sponge has short lifetime, the chipping always fall off, also may cause allergy to our skin. So it is not a good choice for most users. Therefore, non-latex sponge is born at the right moment.
non-latex sponge does not contain latex, so no harm to human body/skin; it includes VE which is good for our skin; no chipping fall off; no smell,eco-friendly etc.
Today, we would like to show you how to check if the sponge is made of latex or non-latex.
In fact, only one method,soak the sponge into water, and see if it will become bigger. If bigger, it is non-latex sponge, if not, it is latex.

Makeup brush material-ferrule and handle



Ferrule Material
The ferrule material can be aluminum, copper
Aluminum ferrule: surface can be anodized to a variety of colors such as silver, black, red, blue, green, etc;
Copper ferrule usually can be plated into limited colors,and the cost is high.
Aluminum ferrule VS copper ferrule:
The cost of copper ferrule is 4-5 times of aluminum ferrule. The hardness is 10 times of aluminum ferrule
Copper ferrule is thicker/brighter/durable than aluminum ferrule.

Handle material:The handle material can be wooden, bamboo, plastic, and acrylic.
Plastic and acrylic handles need molds, so it is not proper for small quantity, as the molding cost is high, and needs to spare the cost to each brush, if the order quantity is not big enough, it is not cost-effective.
Acrylic handles is expensive than plastic handles due to the higher cost and difficult technology.
The advantage of plastic handle is: it can have various shapes/designs 

Wooden handle: the most common wooden handle is birch, the MAC and Sigma brushes are all with birch handles. Some customers will use ebony, but it is too expensive, few users can afford such brushes.

Bamboo handle: also very common and cost-effective, the most famous brands are BB and EDM.

Metal handle: normally can be aluminum handle and copper handles; both can be freely printed logo

Being a makeup brush supplier since 2000, we can supply makeup brushes with different mateirial per customer requirement. Please describe your material requirements in detail and custom makeup brushes from Chinese Makeup Brush Manufacturer at factory price.

Makeup brush Material: Copper ferrule VS aluminum ferrule

From our previous articles, many customers may have known the difference between aluminum ferrule and copper ferrule ,i.e: the cost of copper ferrule is 4-5 times of aluminum ferrule. The hardness is 10 times of aluminum ferrule. Copper ferrule is thicker/heavier/brighter/durable than aluminum ferrule.

However, after plating oranodizing with difference colors, we may not distinguish them by brightness. The following is some tips to distinguish copper ferrule with aluminum ferrule:
1. Copper ferrule is much heavier than aluminum ferrule, with the same brush head and handle, we can obviously feel it by ourselves;
2. Copper ferrule is thicker than aluminum ferrule, enclosed pictures for your reference:

3. Some cheap aluminum ferrules will be easily scratched, copper ferrules will not.

So during customizing makeup brushes, shall we use copper ferrules or aluminum ferrules on our brushes? It depends on your budget and target market. Many luxurious brands only accept copper ferrule due to its brightness and luxurious, as they targets to top customers, so they use best materials for each part: top grade animal hair, copper ferrule, ebony handles. If your target market is middle/low market, it is really no necessary to pay extra cost on ferrules, use better hair material will be a better choice, after all, it is the most important part of the whole makeup brushes, and users can directly feel the quality by touching.
