What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

What is Brushean?  

Brushean is a smart beauty device that easily and safely sanitizes makeup brushes after every use. Our patent-pending design features UV-C sterilization technology that kills 99.9% of all bacteria and viruses. Our easy-to-use hydraulic lift function and dust cover help safely store brushes in a safe and clean environment. Brushean also includes an automatic five-minute timer and operates with a rechargeable battery. It’s simple, sleek and safe.

Say goodbye to gross bacteria and germs that quickly accumulate on your makeup brushes and can lead to serious skin problems! Dermatologists recommend cleaning makeup brushes every day to remove harmful bacteria yet a recent study found that more than 80 percent of women don’t wash their bushes after each use.

The truth is the average person doesn’t have time to thoroughly clean their brushes each day. We are busy and have more important things to do. That’s why we created Brushean! Use our device on a daily basis to keep your tools sanitized and bacteria-free. You’ll look and feel your best when your makeup brushes are clean and performing at their best. Brushean can’t replace washing out the brushes with soap and water, but it absolutely helps prevent bacteria and germ build up.

Why is it important to clean our brushes?  

Without consistent sterilization, bacteria builds up over time and is extremely harmful to your skin’s health. Our UV-C lamp can remove up to 99.9% of bacteria with the UV-C wavelength. Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) is a disinfection method that uses short-wavelength ultraviolet (UV-C) light to kill or inactivate microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions. The technology is used in a variety of spas and across a variety of industries. 

We currently have a working prototype and is ready to build the production mold to start production immediately after the campaign with your help.

  • UV Sterilize up to 15-20 makeup brushes.

Risks and challenges

We are excited to deliver a high-quality and important skin care product to all of our Kickstarter supporters. We are working hard to ensure seamless production and delivery of the product.

Our team includes experienced engineers, operations manager, leading manufacturers and fulfillment companies standing by to start production once our campaign is funded.

1. Manufacturing: We are planning to place our manufacturing order by the end of April 2018. From April to September, we will be working on the production mold, quality control testing, and a production test run.

2. Fulfilment and Shipment: We already have our third-party fulfillment center secured. They will be ready to ship in the United States and around the globe. We are planning to ship our product by the end of November with hopes that it arrives before the holidays.

3. Battery: During our product testing phase, the testing showed that the battery life is up to 20 hours.

We thank you for your interest in and support of Brushean. We look forward to sharing this journey with you and will send email updates along the way. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Please email us with questions or concerns at hello@brushean.com
