Dry Baby Bath Sponge Konjac Sponge Scrubbers
Unlike loofahs, which are often made from plastic and end up in landfill, Konjac Sponges are made from the powdered root of the Konjac Plant, a fibrous vegetable which is native to East Asia and has a variety of other uses in cooking. Konjac Sponges gain their unique round shape from the moulding process, in which the mixture used to create the sponges is heated and then cooled to set the sponges. During this process, Konjac Sponges can also be infused with other ingredients to make them even more beneficial to specific skin types, such as Charcoal and different coloured Clays. Incredibly popular in Korea, Konjac Sponges are actually ideal for sensitive skin because of their soft, bouncy texture.
Benefits of Konjac Sponges
Konjac Sponges offer a deeper cleanse than your usual facial cleanser alone, with a gentle exfoliating action which helps to remove makeup and dead skin cells, absorb grime, and extract impurities. These soft, light sponges are used in the way you would use a face washer, but are able to do a lot more than a normal sponge or cloth. Abundant in nourishing minerals, Konjacs are pH neutral, which means they alkalise your skin by helping to balance the acidity of your complexion. Lightly abrasive, Konjac Sponges massage the skin while they cleanse, promoting blood flow and stimulating skin cell regeneration for a healthy, fresh complexion. They can even remove heavier skin care products like waterproof sunscreen. They're also completely biodegradable, so they can be disposed of in the compost or even in your garden bed.
