Well, to start, it might be interesting to know that 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 they began using the Konjac potato as a weird yet wonderful beauty treatment. The Konjac sponge has been handmade from the vegetable fibre of this plant along with French clays and even pure charcoal from bamboo. As a result, the Konjac sponge is extremely gentle and 100% biodegradable – and you can even 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. It is recommended to have two separate sponges, one for your body and one for your face. The sponge acts as a gentle exfoliator, delicately rubbing off dead skin cells. The super soft texture means anyone can use it, new born babies included – they even have a sponge specifically made for babies too!
