The Konjac sponge is a natural sponge made from konjac root, an Asian tree grown in Japan and Korea. This natural, very soft and delicate vegetable fibre is obtained from it.
Konjac sponges are used for daily facial cleansing, to deeply cleanse the skin. They are a perfect accessory for any zero waste beauty routine. It is a product that cleanses, exfoliates and moisturises your skin in a single step and in a natural way.
The original Konjac sponge is white but is mixed with bamboo charcoal or clay to suit different skin types. For example:
Konjac sponge is moistened and soaked in warm water as it is usually sold dry. It is then gently massaged into the skin. You can use it without products or with a face soap. From Mediterranean Spirit we suggest you to use it with our refreshing face soap 4 in 1, you will get a very clean and glowing skin!
Regarding maintenance, it is advisable to renew it every 2 months if used daily and if it is not used for a while, it should be put in the fridge. It is also recommended to boil it every 2-3 weeks to sterilise it. After each use you should remove the excess water and keep it in a dry and well-ventilated place to avoid mould and mildew. Do not squeeze it too hard after use because it can be damaged. Be careful!
At Mediterranean Spirit we encourage everyone to use this zero waste vegetable sponge because it helps keeping our planet cleaner. However, if you decide to buy one, make sure that its packaging is sustainable such as cardboard, for example. Go for organic and environmentally friendly cosmetics!
