Why a Konjac Sponge Works
I’m a big fan of body brushing for its ability to increase circulation, exfoliate and cleanse pores. A konjac sponge is like body brushing for your face. It’s also good for dry patches, acne, blackheads and eczema.
Konjac naturally nourishes with vitamins A, B, C, D and E, proteins, lipids, fatty acids, copper, zinc, iron, and magnesium. This wonder veggie even has antioxidants and has historically been used to suppress tumors. Unlike other exfoliators that harm the environment, konjac is completely natural, non-toxic, and biodegradable (no harmful plastic microbeads needed!)
Konjac fibers used to make this magical sponge are derived from a Konjac Tree’s root; it resembles a potato or yam. The trees grow in East Asia at places with high altitudes. Japanese have used them for over a millennium because of its medicinal and nutritional benefits.
Given its numerous natural properties including health benefits, Konjac is increasingly becoming a popular and vital ingredient for different skincare products, with Konjac Sponges leading.
