If you haven't heard about Konjac Sponge before, you must read on as you have just come across nature's wonder product. You must be thinking you're looking at a kind of pumice stone and are wincing in pain at the thought. But no! Trust us, once wet, it will be softer than anything you have ever used to wipe your skin with.

 

This is an all natural sponge made from the root of a konjac plant, a porous vegetable that grows in Asia where it has been used by women for over 1000's of years to gently cleanse and exfoliate their skin to achieve a fresh, natural glow. When it comes to exfoliating your skin, how many of us know what chemicals are inside certain products that strip away the skin's natural moisturisers? This is why we love the Konjac Sponge - it is so gentle in Asia they even use it on babies.

 

During production, the root of the konjac plant is ground to flour. The resulting white Konjac flour is mixed with water, sometimes different cleansing clays are added and then it gets baked in the oven to a sponge. A Konjac sponge is basically a cleanser and exfoliator rolled into one. Softer than a loofah and finer than a washcloth, its unique texture gently removes dirt, oil, dead skin cells and even stubborn makeup. After use your skin is much softer to the touch and looks brighter.  Best of all, konjac sponges are so gentle even those with sensitive skin or rosacea can use them without fear of irritation (unless you overdo it, of course).

 

They are safe to use daily for most skin types but perhaps give yourself the odd break if your skin is very sensitive. Maybe use 2-3 times a week. Just experiment and see what works best for you.

 

Bamboo charcoal - for anyone with oily skin that’s also prone to breakouts and blackheads, the activated carbon and various minerals help draw out excess oils from your skin. Bamboo Charcoal is also rich in antioxidants and has natural antibacterial properties.

 

Green clay - Perfect for combination and oily t-zone skin. With its mineral-rich goodness and highly absorbent properties, the green clay Konjac Sponges tighten pores, tones the complexion and revitalise damaged skin cells. This ingredient naturally draws out impurities and toxins to reveal a smoother, fresher complexion.

 

White konjac sponge - suitable for all skin types, but particularly those with sensitive skin, the original white konjac sponge helps to balance the pH of your skin while still gently exfoliating and cleansing

 

Pink clay - gently purifies even the most sensitive skin. Pink French clay has a softening effect on rough skin, improves circulation and helps repair connective tissue. Revitalise skin that suffers from the weather extremes of air conditioning, excess sun exposure and central heating. 

 

How to use the Konjac Sponge: Soak the sponge for a few minutes (it will feel rubbery with it being a tree root) until it is fully softened, then squeeze out the excess water, add some natural cleanser and gently massage over your face. You will need just a tiny amount as it is so soft and porous, so it will save you money on products too. Or use it without any, just plain wet, perhaps you don't use much makeup and just a wash is all your skin needs, there are no rules. Then rinse out the sponge, squeeze it between your palms and hang it up to dry. Do not wring it as that can damaged the bonding and your sponge won't last as long. If it is looked after well, it should last for 3 months of regular use.

 

100% Natural, 100% Biodegradable - just pop into your compost bin when it is finished. Packed with minerals and antioxidants, environmentally friendly, cruelty free and naturally sustainable
