Maker Faire Rome 2023


Brushcob is a set of three scrub brushes for the skincare made with a biomaterial of our ideation based on corn cob, an abundant industrial waste. The abrasive nature of the cob is used to exfoliate the skin and, thanks to the glycerin and the potato starch in the recipe, the skin remains soft and smooth after the usage. Dipping the product in the water activates the softening capability of the material. The three brushes differ not only in shape and size, but also in the granulometries of the corncob particles, to be efficient in parts of the body with different characteristics.
