GENEVA, June 21, 2011 — DuPont and adesign Brushes will launch the development of adesign next generation brushes using DuPont™ Natrafil® at the MakeUp in Paris event, June 23 and 24 at the Carrousel du Louvre in Paris. Prototypes of the new adesign Brushes will be distributed at the DuPont Stand East 9 to professional make up artists willing to participate in the development of the adesign Brush line. 

adesign Brushes made with DuPont™ Natrafil® filaments, which feel and perform like natural hair, will launch in 2012.

adesign Brushes is a professional make up brush brand solely owned by Anisa Telwar. Telwar also is founder and president of Anisa International, Inc., a cosmetic brush designer and manufacturer, initially created for the makeup artist industry with concepts based on the artist’s input and feedback. The brand soon became recognized by artists, consumers and bloggers for high-quality, innovative brush designs.

“The adesign Brush line is utilized for research and development of new shapes, materials and patent-pending technology,” said Telwar. “We are moving the industry as a whole toward synthetics, and working with DuPont™ Natrafil® filaments offer similar pick up and application as natural hair — the quality of the material is unmatched. We also found in our tests that there is less product waste with brushes made with Natrafil®, providing an additional benefit to our customers. ”

Natrafil® filaments, manufactured using a patented technology, were developed by DuPont to replace natural hair in cosmetic brushes. The goal was to replicate the scales of natural hair, where powder lodges itself and is released when the hair bends. Polymers are smooth by nature, and therefore the challenge was to create a micro structure along the filament to imitate the structure of natural hair. “The challenge was met and exceeded. Makeup artists’ feedback confirms that Natrafil® facilitates the pick-up of the most difficult formulas — whether powdery, oily or liquid, for a more precise application and cleaner makeup effect, as the formula is released only upon skin contact,” said Sarah Perreard, DuPont™ Natrafil® product manager. “Natrafil® filaments are very durable, do not absorb liquids and the tuft is not damaged by cleaning, even every day, making it a material of choice for professionals.”
