The toe of the brush is cut diagonally and is slightly rounded in the shape of an arch so that the brush fits easily in the uneven surfaces of the face, including the area around the nostrils and the indent of the upper eyelids.
The brush picks up the right amount of powder to provide an even application on the face for a natural finish.

5 Feature Points
① Eco-friendly material
Thirty-seven percent of TAfrE® fiber comes from a plant resource (corn) to reduce the environmental burden (for Ag-TAfrE®, the plant resource is 30%).
* Commercially available PBT brushes (synthetic hair) are made from 100% petroleum-based materials.
② Cuticles exquisitely treated
Exquisitely treated cuticles, which conventional synthetic fibers do not have, provide the same “pick-up and release” functions as those of animal hair.
⇒ Excellent in powder pick-up and application to the skin.
③ Unique crimp processed
Fibers are 3D crimp-processed in a manner similar to animal hair to add volume to the brush.
●TAfrE®: Spiral (spring-like configuration)
●Ordinary synthetic hair: Wavy (wavy line on a plane surface)
⇒ Volumized shape efficiently picks up powder.
④ PTT (polytrimethylene terephthalate) used
A material having polyester’s shape recovery properties and nylon’s excellent softness and stretchability.
⑤ Ag (silver-based inorganic antimicrobial agent) kneaded (Ag-TAfrE®)
The brush remains clean because Ag, which has been kneaded into the synthetic hair, exerts an almost permanent antimicrobial effect.
It will reduce the development of bacteria caused by sebum which accumulates from makeup application.
* HABA’s brushes, which use 50% Ag, demonstrate satisfactory results.
TAfrE® is a synthetic bristle developed in the quest for an animal-free product.
While animal hair is used widely in the cosmetics market, it has become difficult to secure because of concerns about the maintenance of hair quality and stability, as well as increasing concern for the protection of animals. This means future projections are for increasing costs and greater difficulty in securing stable supplies of animal-sourced bristles.
TAfrE® was developed to mimic squirrel bristle, which provides excellent usability, but is difficult to obtain.
Most commercially available synthetic hair is made of either polyester (PBT) or nylon only. TAfrE® is made of polytrimethylene terephthalate (PTT), which features polyester’s shape recovery properties and nylon’s excellent softness and stretchability compared to other synthetic fibers.
How to Use
The brush feels good on the skin. The brush picks up the right amount of powder and fits into uneven surfaces of the face. The powder is evenly applied to create a lustrous finish. It can be used easily for partial areas like the cheeks.
Pick up powder on the tip of the brush, and glide the brush from the center of the face outward.
Pick up powder on the tip of the brush, and lightly tap the brush on the highest point of the cheek toward the base of the ear.
Pick up powder on the tip of the brush, and apply to the area under the eyes, the T-zone, and under the chin to create a three-dimensional look.
