A body brush made in Japan by textile professionals. Remarkable abilities in dirt removal, foaming, and draining remaining water!

We at Nihon Clean-tech Co., Ltd., whose parent company is a professional trading company for hair materials for all kinds of brushes like makeup brushes, calligraphy brushes, toothbrushes, and even highly specialized industrial brushes, created a ground-breaking body brush. We’ve utilized the know-how as hair material specialists, and pursued unique functionality by using two types of fibers, one in the center and one on the outside.


Body Care Brush Overview & Benefits


Recommended for

  • Those who regularly use body brushes but have never been satisfied
  • Those who have never used a body brush
  • Those who are interested in skincare and health
  • That need help with those hard to reach places

The brush we have developed solves any sort of dissatisfactions you may have had with the body brushes you have used before, and is a product for even those who have never used a body brush before.



There are two types of fibers, tapered fibers and special cross-sectional shape fibers, that are used for the brush part.                                              

The tapered fibers of the outer tuft brush gradually narrows from the root to the tip of the bristles.  The diameter of the root is as fine as 0.1 mm.  About 210,000 of these tapered fibers are luxuriously used in the body care brush.

Due to the characteristics of the fibers, the roots are firm and the tips are soft, so that you can feel the appropriate elasticity and softness when gliding against the skin.

Furthermore, the fibers with fine bristles are suitable for areas that have more delicate skin such as under your arms. Even with fine bristles, you can be sure that you will get rid of all the dirt, sweat, dead skin, and more without having to scrub.

The tip of each of the tapered fibers of this brush is really fine, and even though it is an ultra-fine fiber that fits into a fine gap, it has a nice soft touch. Using this brush is not only great for cleaning and exfoliation but also other benefits through a gentle massage.



The flocked brush placed in the center is great at making and keeping your soap to lather.

The fibers of the flocked brush have a special cross-sectional shape. The soft bristles (the white bristles) have a slit in the cross section of the fibers, and the tougher bristles (gray bristles) have a hexagonal cross section which is twisted in a spiral shape.


There is a soft and hard type of brush. In the soft type brush, air is taken in through the slits of the fibers allowing soap and moisture to efficiently foam. The large surface area of ​​the fibers also improves foam retention.

The hard type has edges on the fibers, so you can feel a pleasant scrub while you wash.

In Japan and possibly other countries too, brush products that are thick and have a good feel on the skin are popular, but the problem is that they do not drain very well. For body care brushes, a bundle of tapered fibers (a tuft brush) is divided into three blocks, and the special cross-section fibers are inserted in clumps at regular intervals to create a “gap” at the base of the brush part. This “gap” serves as a passage for water and air, which allows proper draining and drying which prevents bacteria and mold buildup.


If the brush does not drain well, it’s more than just water remaining on the brush. It’s also sebum, dead skin, and soap scum that accumulates on the brush which causes germs to grow and an unwanted odor. In order to achieve both washing and cleanliness, we have developed a hybrid type that is both a tuft brush and a flocked brush.

In order to maximize the greatness of the brush, we are particular about the curve of the handle and the angle of the head. The exquisite curve of the handle and the angle of the head make the brush part sit perfectly on your back which is a tough area to reach and clean properly. Since it has a large curve compared to general body brushes, you won’t have any issues reaching those tough places even if you aren’t limber.

For example, it’s great for pregnant women who may need that extra length to help wash their feet and toes.


Some people who have used ordinary body brushes have problems such as "the grip (handle) is slippery and hard to hold on to when it gets soapy” and "it’s slippery and doesn’t allow me to add more force to scrub.”

In order to get rid of the slipping caused by the soap (on the handle), we focused on a biomass plastic wood powder compound resin.  Since it contains 70% wood powder, its texture and feel are similar to wood, and we use this special resin to provide a good grip.



The surface of the grip molded from wood-blended resin has invisible three-dimensional irregularities. This fine unevenness improves the surface roughness of the surface and can be expected to have the effect of reducing slipping caused by soap and the like.


In addition, "wood flour-blended resin" has the advantage of reducing the amount of fossil resource-derived plastics used by blending wood flour.

Compared to fossil resource-derived plastics, it is possible to reduce CO2 emissions by about 40% at the manufacturing stage. The amount of wood powder-blended resin used for the grip of the body care brush is 25.8% of the total handle. We are working on this project, believing that this small amount of accumulation will help protect the earth we live in, although it is still a small amount.


Our body care brushes are made to be high-quality brushes.

We applied our knowledge about fibers and materials to product design and specifications in Kainan City, Wakayama Prefecture, which has long been known as a production center for household products.

Nihon Clean-tech

Nihon Clean-tech is a branch office of a trading company that has a history of more than 100 years that specializes in hair materials such as high-quality animal hair used in Kumano brushes.

We established in 1998 as a subsidiary of Nishimura Co., Ltd., a trading company specializing in hair materials with a history of more than 100 years. Nishimura Co., Ltd. is a specialist in hair materials that makes a wide variety of goods from specialized chemical fibers used in factories to animal hair used for cosmetic brushes. For animal hair, which is a natural raw material that requires detailed information such as the production status and the quality of the supplier, we have established a unique information procurement route through a network overseas that has continued for more than 100 years, and it is famous for the Kumano brush (a makeup brush). We have earned a great deal of trust from brush manufacturers in the Kumano region.

In addition, we have a network that changes the quality requirements of each client into the shape of specialized industrial brush fibers used in factories and fibers for toothbrushes, which we have also gotten a lot of support for.

Nihon Clean-Tech was formed as a maker of brush based items, all thanks to our ability to deliver items that were only made possible due to our knowledge about brush and hair products. Since our establishment, we have been developing products that can be used as cleaning tools such as brushes and brooms at a more reasonable price.

In 2021, we wanted to try creating something else besides your basic cleaning tool, so we started a "body care brush" project on Makuake, a Japan-based crowdfunding site, and succeeded.

The knowledge and know-how about hair materials that our parent company has has been put to great use in developing our body care brush. We also have the advantage of setting reasonable prices ourselves. Our product development routine, which detects what kind of product users are looking for at what price and commercializes it, has been inherited by us and will continue in the future.



Make sure the water is drained from the brush well, and store it by hanging it in a well-ventilated place out of direct sunlight. Tuft brushes are densely packed with fibers, so to ensure you can use the brush for a long time, gently press the bristles with a dry towel after use to remove water.


Q: There is an uneven color on the handle and grip, is it a defective product?

A: The grip contains 70% natural wood powder. Since the wood component is a large part, there may be individual differences and slight unevenness in the color of the grip part, but there is no problem with the quality.


Q: What is the wood smell?

A: Immediately after opening, you may smell wood. This is the smell that comes out of the wood powder compound resin in the grip part of the handle. After a while, the wood smell disappears. There is no problem with the quality of the product.


Q: What should I do if the bristles on the brush are tangled?

A: Do not pull it forcibly, but soak it in hot water and detangle it slowly.


Q: Is it okay to scrub strongly?

A: You can still get a comfortable and refreshing wash by scrubbing gently. You don’t need much force. You actually may risk damaging your skin if you scrub too hard. In particular, rubbing the same area for too long will not only damage the skin, but may also cause a rash. If you experience any abnormalities on your skin or feel pain, discontinue use immediately.


Q: Can I use it for purposes other than washing my body?

A: This brush is made specifically for your body. Do not use chemicals other than soap and body soap (lotion oil, massage oil, etc.) on the brush.
