Unless you've been hiding in a secret cave somewhere, you've probably heard of Konjac sponges and wondered what all the fuss is about. When combined with a foaming body wash, a Konjac cleansing sponge is the new, easy way to gently detoxify and exfoliate your skin as it cleanses.

What is a Konjac Sponge:

Konjac sponges are 100% natural, made from the root of the Konjac plant that has been cultivated in Asia for centuries. The plant fibers in Konjac sponges are naturally porous and become super soft when soaked in water, making them soft enough to use on even the most sensitive skin. Ideal for daily exfoliation, they remove dead skin cells, remove dirt and even remove make-up, leaving your face soft and, of course, super clean. And even better: Konjac sponges are completely natural, so you can let them biodegrade or even compost them when they're ready.

Benefits of Konjac Sponge:

They can be used over and over again

Konjac sponges can be left to dry between uses, to last even longer. When dry, they are too bristly and harsh to use on skin. The best way to use a konjac facial sponge without exfoliating the skin too much is to soak it in warm water for 10-15 minutes. You can then exfoliate your skin in gentle circular motions.


You can combine it with a foaming cleanser to double the potency

We recommend combining your Konjac sponge with Garnier's gentle and soothing facial wash. As the name suggests, this facial wash cleanses the skin from deep inside without peeling it too much. Enriched with orange fruit water, it soothes and cleanses the skin and removes all traces of dirt, oil, and grime. This facial rinse is soap-free and suitable for all skin types.

Because Konjac sponges are completely natural, they will start to break down and degrade over time. It is good practice to replenish cleansing materials overtime to ensure your skin stays fresh. Approximately two months is a good estimated time to replace the sponges; Since they are made from a vegetable, you can simply toss them in the compost pile.



So, what are you waiting for? Grab your own Konjac sponge and buff gently for clearer, smoother skin!
