After hearing from PETA and nearly 110,000 members of the public, Kugo—the parent company of shaving brands RoyalShave, Pomades, and TheStache.com—confirmed that it had banned badger hair! These brands join nearly 100 others worldwide that have turned their backs on an industry that forces badgers to live inside cramped, wire cages before workers bludgeon them and slit their throats. Despite this cruelty, some companies continue to sell items made from badger hair. Please urge Blick Art Materials and others to follow the example of Kugo, The Art of Shaving, Morphe, NARS Cosmetics, and dozens more and ban badger hair now.
