I use a textured silicone makeup brush mat to help me get out all the pain up to the metal base. This helps me keep my pigments pure when I go to do my next painting.
Obviously, this stuff has been around for a bit. It's good and the way I clean my sable brushes now.
I have some cosmetics brushes that are in bad shape too, and I noticed some reviewers are using this product on their cosmetics brushes. I had reservations about doing that because I'm very careful about what I allow to come into contact with my skin. Any toxic ingredient will be absorbed right into your bloodstream. Just because a product is gentle does not mean it is nontoxic. I looked everywhere on the product and on the web trying to find a list of ingredients, and they were nowhere to be found.
So I contacted the General Pencil Company that makes this product and asked them for a full list of their ingredients and whether it can be used for cosmetic brushes. This is the reply I received: "We have heard that many people use this product for their make-up brushes however since this is not tested for cosmetic use we are unable to recommend for cleaning your cosmetic/eye liner brushes. The ingredients in our brush Cleaner is proprietary information. The Masters® Brush Cleaner is tested and certified for safety by the Art & Creative Materials Institute"
The fact that the ingredients are "proprietary information" and they will not release them to the public AND the fact that they do not recommend using their product for cosmetic brushes is all I need to convince me never to use it for that. The company knows what is in their product--we don't--and they say not to use it on cosmetics brushes. Don't take a chance with your health. Use a product designed for cleaning cosmetic brushes. It may not leave them as gorgeous as this product does, but it will be formulated for that purpose and required to comply with government regulations for that use.
For your artists' brushes, though, get this product. It is hands down the best art brush cleaner I've ever used or even heard of. It's probably the best in the world. Don't hesitate to use it on your brushes. Just not on your skin or cosmetics brushes. I recommend getting this smaller size to keep in your artist's bag to carry around with you and a larger size to keep at home for all your household brushes, like the ones you use to paint rooms with.
