Procter & Gamble Co. has agreed to stop selling badger hair brushes because of concerns about animal abuse by suppliers in China.

P&G will immediately stop using badger hair in its Art of Shaving business, which will sell its remaining inventory of shave brushes and switch to synthetic bristles. Most high-end shaving brushes are currently made from varying grades of badger hair.
