Most of cleanser that contains "Soap" substance, (which is the main reason of the product itself... to clean) it get rids of bacteria, jerms, dirt and stuff.
But most cleansers can't get rid of 100% of Dirt in overall, or else it will make anything stiff. This or that, your brush will immediately get in contact with dirt even after cleansing. (Air, Dust... you know all that)
So i guess, the main reason of cleansing the brush is to get rid of the residue on it itself. So that the next color you place on the brush doesn't get mixed up (every so slightly) and looses it's true color.
Also those invisible pile of colors can also impact the texture of the product as well (creme, powder..etc)
Hope it helps :)

The description says it removes germs, but I don't see an alcohol ingredient. It's an amazing cleanser, but if you want more ease, use this and then when they completely dry, spray a few pumps of rubbing alcohol to really disinfect. I also add alcohol to everything afterwards and my brushes are still in perfect condition.

I doubt this is antibacterial, but it does a great job cleaning sponges and brushes. No extra cleaning product is needed, but if your brush or sponge is especially dirty or has a lot of product build up it may take a couple (or 3) latherings to get your item clean. They dry clean and soft. I love using a freshly cleaned brush:)
I used this product for cleaning my beauty blender and would wet the sponge and rub onto the soap cake, then squish to make a lather, rinse until the water runs clear or repeat the process if necessary. Because the soap cake gets makeup residue on it from the sponge, I rinse it after use and let it completely dry uncapped.
This is also a great brush cleaner - just wet the brush and swirl onto the soap cake - but the soap seemed to dissolve a lot faster this way so I bought a liquid cleaner for brushes and will continue to use the soap cake for the sponges alone.
