100% biodegrable and natural, this gentle sponge made from Konjac vegetable fibre is an essential and extremely affordable addition to your skin care routine.
---- What is the Konjac Sponge? ----
Konjac actually comes from a potato-like plant in Asia that is both cultivated and grows wild at high altitudes. The Japanese have used Konjac for over 1500 years as a food source and over the last century have been using the Konjac potato as a beauty treatment. The Konjac sponge has been handmade from the vegetable fibre of this plant along with French clays and some contain pure charcoal from bamboo. As a result, the Konjac sponge is extremely gentle and 100% biodegradable – you can compost it when it’s time for a new one.
---- What Does the Konjac Sponge Do? ----
The Konjac sponge is an extremely gentle cleanser for both face and body. The sponge acts as a gentle exfoliator, rubbing off dead skin cells in the most delicate manner. The extra soft texture means that its ok for anyone to use, babies included. While this won’t replace your makeup remover (eye makeup more specifically) it can gently take off much of your face makeup in a matter of minutes.
---- How Do I Use the Konjac Sponge? ----
Fresh from the packaging, the sponge is already moist and puffy. Hence you may run the sponge under water and use immediately. Simply use the round side (for round sponge type) in a circular motion around your face to exfoliate and remove dirt and grime. This circular massaging will stimulate tired skin & encourage skin renewal – and we can all use a bit of that! Once you are finished with your sponge, squeeze it between your hands to get the water out - never wring out your sponge, this will deteriorate the fibers and cause its life to end a lot shorter than necessary. Every sponge comes with a string so that you may hang it in the washroom or any airy place to dry. It is completely normal for the sponge to shrink and turn dry and hard after 1 day. To use it again, simply wet it under warm water until it’s completely soaked through and soft.
---- Do I Need to Use a Cleanser with a Konjac Sponge? ----
If you choose, you can also use a bit of your cleanser with the sponge, although this may shorten its lifespan. Since keeping your skin’s natural moisture intact is essential in anti-aging, I prefer to use my sponge in the morning (sans cleanser), as a facial cleanser can be drying and unnecessary after sleeping. While many have claimed to use it to take off makeup, I would reccommend using a proper eye makeup remover first, and maybe a cleanser too, as the sponge won’t take away your mascara and eyeliner.
---- Which One Do I Choose? ----
There are 5 different clay flavours for your selection, and choosing an ideal konjac sponge flavour really depends on your skin type.
The Red Clay Sponge is great for Dry to Combination skin, but also wonderful for anyone who doesn’t suffer from any particular ailments. While red clay cleans the skin by removing dead keratinized cells, it accelerates the regeneration process which improves blood circulation and makes the skin look radiant, and hydrated. This is your sponge if you’re worried about the appearance of wrinkles and broken capillaries. A perfect pick for dryer and/or mature skin.
The Green Tea Clay Sponge is great for Oily skin. Green clay acts as a sterilizer, helping to keep acne-causing bacteria at bay. It is not uncommon to find green French clay at spas and other wellness centers. Green clay also contains micro-molecules which help to absorb dirt, oil, and bacteria, while gently cleansing the pores.
The Original White Konjac Sponge is 100% pure konjac with no added clays. As konjac is 100% alkaline, it will help balance the pH of your skin while still gently exfoliating and cleansing. You can use the pure Konjac sponge with your daily cleanser, instead of using a facial brush.
The Bamboo Charcoal Konjac Sponge is for you if you have oily skin or is prone to spots, blackheads and outbreaks. Charcoal contains activated carbon and various minerals that enhance absorptive ability, which is perfect for removing excess oil. Bamboo Charcoal is also a natural anti-oxidant, so will help fight hard-to-reach, acne-causing bacteria.
The Aloe Vera Konjac Sponge is ideal for all skin types. Aloe vera is a natural remedy used for burns and dry skin due to its strong healing powers. Its natural ingredients such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes can instantly calm, comfort and sooth irritated and inflamed skin. Aloe Vera has antimicrobial propertues that kill bacteria and anti-inflammatory properties that reduce skin inflammation. It allows the skin to heal quickly and naturally with minimal scarring. The aloe sponge is moisturising so it's perfect for anyone with an oily complexion too.
---- How Long Will My Sponge Last & How to Care for It? ----
Like all good things, it must come to an end, but not for at least 2 – 3 months depending on how you care for it. By ensuring that it completely dries out in between uses (there is a handy string for that) and that your sponge is never wrung out (always press between your hands to remove excess water during use), you will give your sponge a longer life.
Make sure that before and after each use, you rinse the sponge well – you can disinfect your sponge every other week by boiling it for a few minutes (but dont’t do this too often, as again it will break down the fibers faster).
When it starts to break apart and deteriorate, it is time for a new sponge. Simply compost this sponge (it is 100% natural material, and completely safe – and earth friendly – to do so). You can even put it in the bottom of a potted plant to help retain moisture in the soil – yes, it is that natural.
