What is a Konjac Sponge?

Konjac root

This sponge is made of Konjac fibres which are derived by the Konjac Tree’s root. Konjac Trees are found in East Asia and grow in high altitudes. They are renowned for their medicinal benefits and have been used by the Japanese for hundreds of years. The Konjac Tree’s root is a plant that resembles a potato 

The Konjac sponge is made from 100% natural fibre and doesn’t contain any other synthetic material. This makes it 100% bio-degradable and vegan.

What is the use and benefits of Konjac Sponge in skincare?

It softly cleanses the skin whilst boosting it with the antioxidants, vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12, C, D, & E, proteins, lipids, fatty acids and minerals such as copper, zinc, iron and magnesium it naturally contains.

It removes dirt and impurities  and offers a mild exfoliation that leaves the skin smooth and soft. It unclogs the pores helping acne prone skins,reduces signs of premature ageing and brings back the glow and radiance to the skin.

How to use Konjac Sponge?

Konjac Sponge can be used daily either on its own or with your favourite skincare. In order to transform it from its initial tight and hard texture, you need to keep it under warm water for about a minute for it to expand to its lovely soft texture. Apply your preferred cleanser and then use soft, circular motions to cleanse the skin. 

Once you are finished using it, squeeze out all the excess water and leave it to dry preferably at well-ventilated area. 

Konjac sponges start biodegrade over time due to their natural material. If you take good care of your sponge, it should last for around six to eight weeks, but it is advisable to replace it after 6 weeks in order to maintain its benefits and keep your skin healthy.
