We all know exfoliation plays a key role in keeping the appearance of skin healthy and bright, but here’s a cool new way to do it: with a konjac sponge! This unique cleansing sponge is made of konjac plant fiber, an Asian cultivated, root-based vegetable prized for its ability to deeply cleanse and gently exfoliate. Because of konjac fiber’s excellent water-holding properties, the material is very soft and elastic, much like a firm jelly. It’s extremely gentle too so you can use it on your face and neck, even if you have super-sensitive skin. One Love Organics tested these little sponges for over a year before introducing them—and they are now a customer must-have!
So how exactly do you use a konjac sponge? Easy. When you receive your sponge, it will be pretty much as hard as a pumice stone. Don’t worry: once you rinse it in warm water—which you’ll have to do before each use–it will soften up and expand (almost like how a beautyblender works). Apply your favorite cleanser onto the sponge and gently massage it onto your skin in a circular motion. The beauty of this sponge is that it’s small enough to get into all the little nooks and crannies of your face.
Once done, rinse your sponge thoroughly and hang it by the attached cotton thread in a well-ventilated area to dry. Use it every day and/or night (it’s that gentle!) and replace every two to three months.
