Also known as a Conjac Sponge, it is made from the Konjac root and is ideal for gently cleansing, exfoliating and massaging your skin.
It provides moisture and has an alkaline property which can help hypersensitive skin and is suitable for skin conditions such as acne, eczema and psoriasis.
It’s also really good for removing water-based makeup and is suitable for daily use.
Because it’s very soft, once wet, it’s also suitable for babies. It’s been used in Japan and Korea for thousands of years for cleaning babies.
To use: wet the sponge and use in a circular motion on your skin to cleanse, exfoliate and massage your skin.
It’s 100% natural and is made from the bulb of the konjac plant. The root of the plant (bulb of the plant) is finely ground and mixed with water. The mixture is then baked in an oven until the sponge is formed. To start with it is dry and hard, but once wet it puffs up and becomes soft.
Why we love this Konjac Sponge:
- 100% biodegradable
- Plastic Free
