Rene Xavier Filho and Simone Xavier

Sigma Beauty was founded in 2009 by Brazilian natives Rene Xavier Filho, a civil engineer with a Masters in Business Administration, and Simone Xavier, a veterinarian and researcher with a Ph.D in Molecular Biology.

Since its inception, Sigma Beauty's product development has been highly influenced by its founder’s background in engineering and research. Forward solutions, function, and quality are the cornerstones of our products, and what sets us apart from traditional cosmetic companies.

Innovation shapes the history of Sigma Beauty. We have introduced many new functional concepts to makeup enthusiasts on makeup application and brush care. Our innovative nature is reinforced by the several patents filed and awarded to the company. Our high quality cosmetics, visionary brush designs, and state of the art brush care accessories have secured Sigma Beauty's position as a leader in innovation.

Continually expanding, Sigma Beauty has one mission - to innovate beauty. It is our main strength and our most valued asset to exceed your expectations.



Innovating
Beauty

Sigma Beauty is well known for inventing hand-crafted, high-quality beauty products. With an essence for innovation, every product is continuously changing to reflect our striving efforts of improvement. Throughout the years, Sigma Beauty has fulfilled a gap in the beauty industry for professional-grade beauty tools that guarantee exceptional performance and quality. This led to its unique line of Sigma-exclusive makeup brushes, all of which include a free two-year warranty. Because of the unambiguous dedication to business, creation, manufacturing and distribution, Sigma is able to present products to a wide consumer audience around the world.

The Making of Our Brushes

Fibers

The majority of our brushes are made with exclusive synthetic fibers: SigmaTech® and Sigmax®. Both filaments are made with a special thermoplastic engineering polymer featuring exclusively thin fibers to softly and efficiently collect and deliver powder, liquid and cream products. With near to zero humidity absorption, the strength and stiffness of the filament is not affected by liquid and cream products. Featuring high stress resistance, hypoallergenic materials, each fiber is carefully hand-crafted to last a lifetime.

Wood Handle

We manufacture all of our handles by carefully selecting lightweight and high-resistance wood from renewable sources. Each handle is individually sanded and polished to the extreme before receiving 8 generous layers of prime coat and paint perfection.

Ferrules

Our brush ferrules are made with a high performance SigmaAlloy™. This is a special metal alloy made with copper and zinc providing more strength than aluminum or plastic. The SigmaAlloy™ features wear, antimicrobial and corrosion resistance for maximum durability. Patent No. D718060.

Plating

The luxurious, precious ferrules are plated with thick layers of captivating chrome, copper and gold that guarantees lifelong striking shine and protection.
