Superior Twisted Wire Cosmetic Brushes

It’s not easy creating superior twisted wire cosmetic brushes. Sanderson MacLeod has invested thousands of hours in research and development, all driving toward producing the highest-quality cosmetic brushes with features unmatched in the industry. Each new market demand has resulted in advancements in our production process, improvements in brush design and manufacturing, and innovations in the types of cosmetic brushes produced.

As a large-volume contract manufacturer, we have been providing cost-competitive, domestically produced twisted wire brushes to the cosmetic industry for more than 50 years.

Domestically Produced: Twisted Wire Cosmetic Brushes Made in the USA

Sanderson MacLeod made the decision early on to manufacture only for OEM customers. This allows us to develop strong partnerships with customers, keep costs down, and invest in people, equipment, and technology to continually improve operations in terms of speed, quality, reliability, cost savings, and engineering design. All of our design, manufacturing, and distribution happens at our plant in Palmer, Massachusetts. The driving factor for maintaining all production and operations in the United States is that we can meet exacting standards and manufacture the highest-quality twisted wire brushes on the market.

The Inventor of the Twisted Wire Mascara Brush

In 1959, Sanderson MacLeod designed and produced the first twisted wire mascara brush. Before brushes were used to apply mascara, a variety of other tools served the purpose, including machine screws. When a makeup artist had the idea to use a brush to apply mascara, Sanderson MacLeod was called upon. From those simple beginnings, the mascara brush was invented.

Since then, Sanderson MacLeod’s cosmetic brushes have been in the spotlight of design innovation. By leveraging the latest in design and manufacturing methodologies, our company has maintained its position as a world leader in cosmetic brush production.

Design Breakthroughs: Sanderson MacLeod’s Efforts in Perfecting Cosmetic Brushes

The twisted wire brush designers and engineers at Sanderson MacLeod continually pursue ways to perfect the cosmetic brush. Their efforts have resulted in countless improvements and innovations.

Through close collaboration with our customers, we leverage advanced planning, design, engineering, production, and delivery methodologies for all of our brushes. It’s through these collaborative efforts that our brush design innovation and breakthroughs happen. We work with customers to achieve desired results faster and with more accuracy, often leading to new and exciting features and products.

Over the years, skilled engineers have invented thousands of cosmetic brushes for some of the world’s leading cosmetic companies. This experience, combined with state-of-the-art prototype development processes, continues to produce cosmetic brush design breakthroughs.
