FEATURES

Konjac sponges have been known to be a valuable tool to take care of the skin since the 4th century B.C.. Their soothing massage is ideal to gently stimulate blood circulation and for gentle, non-invasive removal of dead skin cells.

They come from the Konjac potato or konnyaku, an evergreen plant native to Asia that grows wild at high altitudes, and was discovered in Indochina more than 1500 years ago. Their vegetable fibres are naturally rich in water and minerals, making them suitable not only for cosmetic use, but also as a natural source of low-calorie food.

SHAPE AND COLOUR

The product is natural and its processing starts from konjac powder, obtained by drying the root of the plant (konnyaku).  The product is then placed in molds to give it the desired shape. We selected the classic dome shape and had it infused with lavender extract, from whose inflorescence was also obtained the powder that gave the sponge its purple colour, which is therefore natural. Not only lavender is well known for its anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, healing and astringent properties, but also helps fighting pimples and acne, it’s soothing and calming.

IS IT SUITABLE FOR ME?

The Konjac sponge is naturally rich in water and minerals. Its vegetal fibres have a neutral ph and therefore help restore the ph balance of the skin after cleansing. For this reason it can be used on its own without product for a face massage, or to emulsify and remove the detergent.

Suitable for all skin types, including the most sensitive, for oncological and dermathology patients, is plant-derived, 100% natural, free of artificial colouring, irritating ingredients and additives.  It’s also fully bio-degradable and eco-friendly.

HOW TO STORE AND HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?

If properly maintained, konjac sponges should last up to 3-4 months.

Aggressive detergents and excessively hot water may affect the duration of the sponge, especially  if handled with little care or rubbed aggressively.

To keep your sponge in perfect conditions we recommend rinsing it thoroughly after each use, then allow to dry completely and naturally.

Do not boil your sponge or machine wash it. Do not dry it with a hairdryer or leave it to dry on the radiator.

When it starts to fall apart, it’s time to replace it. It can be disposed of with organic waste or placed under the soil of plants that need extra moisture.

The sponge is meant for personal use only; do not share it with other people, including family members.

HOW TO USE A NATURAL SPONGE?

The konjac sponge comes in dehydrated form, is therefore rather hard and should not be used dry. Allow it to soak in lukewarm water until it’s fully saturated with water, increases in volume and feels soft to the touch.

Gently rub it all over the skin with or without product for a revitalizing massage or to lift residues of cleanser, makeup remover or face mask.

Rinse thoroughly after each use with plenty of water to get rid of any residue that may affect its duration, and allow to dry naturally in a well-ventilated place. The sponge will harden again and slightly shrink in size.
