Sisal Body Brush
You will love this premium quality body brush made with natural sisal bristles. Sisal bristles are ideal for dry brushes because they are non-irritating to the majority of skin types compared to brushes with synthetic bristles or even other plant-based bristles.
Unlike other all-natural brushes made from plants that tend to have coarse bristles, sisal brushes have semi-firm bristles which are perfectly safe for the skin. It can exfoliate without being too rough on the skin, provide stimulating massages, help purify the lymphatic system and soothe tired and aching muscles.
All of our sisal bristles are environmentally and sustainably harvested from the sisal plant, which is a perennial succulent grown mostly in Latin America. As a 100% plant-based product which is not tested on animals, our sisal bristles are not only environmentally sustainable, but also vegan and animal friendly.
Dry brushing has incredible health benefits and is widely recommended by health experts. Dry brushing detoxifies the body, improves circulation, exfoliates the skin, improves skin tone, aids digestion, reduces and prevents cellulite, and increases energy and well-being.
In addition to the health benefits, this sisal body brush is also a beautiful work of art. Each brush is handmade from the highest-quality and sustainably-harvested beechwood, which is then beautifully smoothed and finished with natural wax. Our sisal bristles are environmentally and sustainably harvested, and only the best bristles are used to make our brushes.

How to Use
Our brushes are designed to be used without water, soap, or oil. We recommend using your sisal body brush on a daily basis in order to detoxify the body, eliminate dead skin cells, stimulate the lymph nodes, aid digestion, and reduce the appearance of cellulite. If you are new to dry brushing or have sensitive skin, you can start dry brushing once a week and work your way up to every 2-3 days depending how sensitive your skin is. You should also listen to your body and can adjust your dry brushing frequency as needed.
We recommend brushing rhythmically and with light, smooth, and gentle strokes. Make sure to adjust the speed and pressure in order to match the sensitivity of your skin. Start by brushing the soles of your feet and then work your way up and inward.
We also recommend brushing with long, straight strokes in the direction of the heart. This is the direction in which lymph flows in your body, so brushing in this direction (as opposed to brushing in a circular motion or away from your heart) will have the most beneficial effect on your lymphatic system, which is responsible for detoxifying your body. In addition, brushing in this direction will help stimulate the nervous system and increase your blood circulation.
After brushing, take a shower or bath to ensure that dead skin and toxins are washed away.
*Please note that if you have a skin condition such as eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, or extra-sensitive skin, the sisal body brush may not be for you. Dry brushing of any kind is often too abrasive for these skin types and conditions.
