Stop using harsh chemicals on makeup brushes!

The title might make the cause sound silly, but as a HMUA, the tools you use to create aid your creations in a big way. A lot of the best tools are pretty pricey, and with families and bills and life expenses, it's not always easy to replace them. You work hard to be able to afford the best tools you can. The Minnesota law regarding the cleaning of makeup brushes hinders the ability to afford good tools. As of right now, the law states you must fully submerge your makeup brushes in a tuberculocide for 10 minutes. That damages the brushes, disintegrates the glue, and causes the bristles to fall out. This decreases the life of your brushes drastically, lowers the quality of your brushes, and makes it harder to work on clients. Would you want bristles falling all over your face as your wedding makeup artist is working on you? I wouldn't. And good makeup brushes are expensive. On another note, we use our hands in the world of cosmetology. We're constantly touching people, and all we're required to do is wash our hands properly and use hand sanitizer in most situations. So why isnt hot, soapy water and either a tuberculocidal spray or 99% isopropyl alcohol a sufficient method of disinfection? I know to people not in the trade, it might sound silly. But to people who love makeup and do makeup for a living, it's important. I would greatly appreciate your signature on this petition to get this law changed, at the very least, to having to spray the brushes with a tuberculocide rather than submerge them. Thank you on behalf of every makeup artist in the state of Minnesota!
