A luxury half ball sponge, made from Konjac vegetable fibre.
Cleanse and care for skin, without even the need for a cleanser. Made using fibre from the root of the Konjac plant, a porous plant found in Asia, and this sponge is perfect for those with sensitive skin. Almost rubbery and very soft when wet, this sponge just needs to be soaked in water for a few minutes and then massaged over the skin when softened.
SO, WHAT IS A KONJAC SPONGE?
The Japanese have long been at the cutting-edge of skincare & the Konjac plant has been a vital part of their diet, skincare and medicine for centuries.
Despite its name, it’s not at all like the sponge you keep on your kitchen sink. It’s a sponge that’s made from the root of a Konjac plant (a porous vegetable that grows in Asia), which is why it feels almost rubbery once it gets wet. It’s 100-per cent natural and plant-based.
WHAT DOES IT DO?
This sponge will gently cleanse and exfoliate your skin, removing dirt and blackheads easily without irritation. Eco-friendly sponge and made from 100% plant fibre, this Konjac sponge is cruelty-free, biodegradable and compostable.
HOW DO YOU USE A KONJAC SPONGE?
Our Konjac sponge is dry and hard. To use it, soak the sponge for 5–10 minutes until it expands and fully softens, then squeeze out the excess water right before you use it.
Once your sponge is ready, drizzle face wash over the sponge and gently massage your face in circular motions until your skin is clean and your makeup is removed. If you don’t like the idea of really buffing your cleanser into your skin, you can always rub it over your damp skin after cleansing it to pick up excess skin cells. Then rinse out the sponge and hang it (or stand it up) to air-dry overnight.
