Konjac Sponges have been used in the Far East for centuries. In Korea, due to their soft and gentle touch, they are mostly used for baby care. In Japan, Konjac Sponges have been used by women to remove their makeup and during their evening face washing rituals.

How are they made?

Our Konjac Sponge is made from 100% natural Konjac root. The root is ground into a powder and mixed with water, it is then mixed with bamboo charcoal powder to give it it’s extra cleansing properties. The powder is then molded and dried, becoming a hard stone-like object. When mixed with water again, the pores of the sponge widen, and the hard sponge becomes soft and gentle.

Care Instructions

using a konjac spongeUsing your Konjac Sponge

The first time you use your Konjac Sponge, you will notice it is rock solid. Put it under the water, or inside a small bowl with water and watch how it grows in size and becomes soft and gentle.

To start your cleaning ritual, all you have to do is wet it with a bit of water and put a bit of soap, and use it as a normal sponge. We recommend cleansing in circles to make the most out of the sponge. Try not to scrub very strong, but rather gently so you don’t damage the sponge.

Cleaning your Konjac Sponge

Once you’re done with your cleansing ritual, just put the sponge under water and squeeze it to remove the excess water and soap. Once the water that comes out of the soap is clear (no soap). You can let it dry by hanging it from its string.

Try not to twist or over-squeeze the sponge as this can damage it.
