We finally released the brush soap everyone has been asking for. This new Organic Brush Soap is made from organic sunflower oil and organic coconut oil. Both of these oils are non-drying, and so will not gum up the brush over time. There are no colorizing pigments or titanium dioxide added for marketing purposes – the clear yellow comes from the natural color of the oils. It is common for painters to clean their brushes for the short term by rinsing in walnut oil, safflower oil, or Biobased Artist Solvent. However, if brushes are to be stored for longer periods of time, cleaning with soap may be desirable. Also, while brushes are to be transported, oil containers for the brushes may not be convenient. This soap has great foaming action that helps to remove pigments around the ferrule, and since it is in liquid form there are no leftover pigments after cleaning, in contrast to cake soaps.
Some soaps sold for public usage have added preservatives, stablizers, bactericides or other ingredients that promote foaming. Many of these ingredients are not plant derived, but are based on synthetic chemicals. The Art Treehouse Organic Brush Soap avoids using added petrochemical stabilizers, but still has a shelf life of at least a year. For artists that have expensive brushes that must last as long as possible, Organic Brush Soap is the best investment they can make! Organic Brush Soap is available HERE.
