Sea Sponges have been known since the IV century B.C. to be a valuable tool to take care of the skin. Their soothing massage is ideal to gently stimulate blood circulation and for non-invasive removal of dead skin cells. Their particular honeycomb structure allows to collect and evenly distribute the product all over the skin. Thanks to specific marine enzymes and an elaborate system of grooves that naturally inhibit the growth of bacteria and moulds, sponges are by nature hypoallergenic and have anti-septic properties.
They naturally contain iodine and sea salts that are known for their cleansing and detoxifying properties.
SHAPE AND COLOUR
Because Sea Sponges are a natural, hand-harvested product, they come in different shapes and sizes that may vary by as much as 1 cm between each other.
The effectiveness of the product is not affected by its shape.
Also any red streaks (due to the iron naturally occurring in the sponge base) or grit residues are to be expected in a natural organism and perfectly harmless, as they may be a consequence of the gentle washing the sponge undergoes once it’s harvested, and do not undermine its quality.
