Parian Spirit is made from citrus spirits and food grade solvents, giving it powerful cleaning properties that cut through oil-based makeup and adhesives but remains gentle to natural and synthetic hair bristles. Dip, spray or wipe your brushes with Parian Spirit and just watch the makeup and residue come off. Also good for cleaning makeup off clothes, wigs, false eyelashes and false facial hair. Cleans latex and acrylic as well.
After extensive antibacterial lab tests, it was found that Parian Spirit had the strongest disinfecting properties among all of the leading makeup brush cleaners. It takes approximately 1 minute of exposure to disinfect a brush. Sprays are effective in surface cleaning and disinfecting. That is why we recommend deep cleaning your brushes at the end of the day with a Parian Spirit canister.
The time it takes for a brush to completely dry will vary from the type of brush, the bristles, the thickness of the brush and the temperature and humidity of the room. In general Parian Spirit is a moderately fast-drying cleaner. To speed up the drying time and reduce oiliness use an absorbent material such as terry cloth or paper towel to blot and soak up all the moisture.The more you blot the faster the brush will dry. Quickly roll the brush handle between your palms to help circulate air through the brush and to bring up any residue remaining in the brush. Reshape the bristles of the brush and lay it flat or at a downward angle to dry.
• Make sure all containers are tightly sealed when not in use to reduce evaporation. Evaporation may cause oiliness. To reduce oiliness, blot dry brushes completely with absorbent cloth/paper or dip into alcohol momentarily.
• Some brushes may be held together with glue. Over continued use, Parian Spirit may affect that glue, so be aware of how your brush is made and in general do not emerse your brush more than 1/4 way past the bristles.
• This product includes organic components. Store in cool dry place and only purchase enough to last through a six month period. If you shake the bottle and it becomes cloudy it is past its “peak performance” and will take slightly longer to dry and may be oilier. Time to buy a new bottle for professional use, but don’t throw it away it’s still a great cleaner if drying time is not an issue.
