This small sponge is made out of the root of the Konjac plant, which mainly consists of starch.
In Asia this little “helper” has been known for a long time.
The sponge is 100% natural, as it consists to 100% of konjac starch.
Initially, I wasn’t convinced that the smooth surface of the sponge could actually help clean my skin.
In the contrary: the cleaning effect is really remarkable !
I use in combination with facial soap – but this definately is not a must !
One can utilize the sponge without any detergent whatsoever.
These plant fibers are naturally alkaline and therefore help to balance high acid levels in our skin.
With daily use it lasts about 3 months.
If you want to “refresh” the sponge in between, you can pour boiling water over it from time to time. This definately is no must.
All skin types
When first used, hold the sponge under the running water for about 30 seconds. It absorbs it and becomes soft. Then gently massage your face in circular motions. It removes dead skin cells and cleanses the skin thoroughly.
After use, rinse the sponge with clean water and gently squeeze between the palms of your hands (do not “squirm” the little sponge – this destroys its structure & reduces its life. Use the thread to dry.
