Tangle Angel hairbrush with antimicrobial additives
Celebrity UK hairdresser Richard Ward has released a plastic hairbrush that uses antimicrobial additives. Named Tangle Angel, the brush uses Biomaster antimicrobials to make it more hygienic and safe to use.
Biomaster antimicrobials are blended specifically for the end application and are said to reduce the growth of harmful bacteria including MRSA, E.coli and salmonella.
The active ingredient in Biomaster is silver, a natural antimicrobial that has been used for centuries to prevent the growth of bacteria. Added during processing, the properties do not leak out or wash off through use.
Tangle Angel, which also has heat resistant and anti-static properties built in, has reportedly seen a strong growth in sales through hair salons and directly through hairdresser Richard Ward’s website.
Ward said: “Brushes can collect hair, dead skin and residues of hair products which can become sticky and attract dirt. I wanted to create a brush that not only detangles and looks beautiful, but has an added benefit through the added antibacterial agent, which acts as a great defence. We are so pleased with how customers have responded to the brush and are looking to develop further products with Biomaster.”
Paul Morris, Managing Director at Biomaster said: “It’s been said that the average hairbrush holds more bacteria than a sink plughole or dog bowl. We’re pleased to be partnering with Richard Ward on a product that can make a difference to people’s everyday lives.”
