What material should tweezers be made of?

Phillips says stainless steel tweezers are best because stainless steel “is non-allergenic, so it doesn’t irritate the skin,” she says. “It’s also super durable and easy to maintain.”

What else to look for

The metal of which a tweezer is made is important, but also a somewhat unexpected detail: the grip. “The grip and tension of a tweezer are very important features,” she says. “I trust the way a Tweezerman tweezer fits in my fingers and has the right amount of tension to allow me to do my job effectively.”
