Konjac Sponge (Charcoal, Rose or Natural)
The Konjac Sponge is an amazing ancient Japanese secret, made from the konjac plant- its a wonderful world away from the plastic or sea sponges that are still readily available. These are available in 3 colours - Charcoal, Rose or natural.
Why do we need this alternative?
Plastic sponges are commonly made from polyurethane foam. Along with releasing ozone-depleting chemicals whilst being made, polyurethane can also emit formaldehyde amongst other irritants and cancer-causing dioxins when incinerated.
Sea Sponges are not seen as much better in terms of being environmentally friendly. They are very much in danger of extinction due to many reasons- including over harvesting.
What are they like?
The use of the Konjac sponge first began in Japan around 100 years ago -as a bath sponge for newborn babies because of its soft texture. its fast becoming a world wide favourite for facial cleansing, using as a gentle bath sponge- even applying make up!
They are hard to begin with but once soaked they become soft and spongy. Apply a little pressure and use in circular motions on face or body. Just let it dry out naturally after use. (Home compostable after use.)
