Founded in 1808 by Georges Plisson, the factory of shaving brushes Plisson quickly gained a significant reputation and became the official supplier of the Emperor Napoleon. Since nearly 200 years, Plisson is the golden standard in shaving brushes and a recognized expert in the world of shaving.
Today the shaving brushes Plisson are still handmade, all from genuine badger hair, in the great tradition of artisans of luxury. The bristles are first gathered together in a clump and then hand shaped to form the bouquet. Once tied, it is stuck on his mount. The end of the hair is not cut during the process, ‘its natural flower’ is preserved. The badger hair has the particularity to repel water. Thus, even when wet, it retains its softness and spring. Combined with soap, it participates actively in the hydration of the skin.
