Synthetic bristles come in a faux boar nylon bristle or a faux badger synthetic fiber bristle and are alternatives to natural hair for making lather.

Boar bristles (aka pure bristle, white or sketched) are stronger and thicker than badger hair. These bristles are not as flexible as the badger. When water comes into the boar bristles they are not as elastic as badger hair for whipping up lather.

Note: It is important to understand there is no universal grading standard. Natural bristles can vary slightly as to shading and attributes, even within the same category. Natural products will always have slight variations unless they are synthetics, and this is considered a normal part of the product range.
