These things feel a bit weird but we're here for it - it's a little rubbery facial sponge made from a root vegetable from Asia, so it's fully compostable & biodegradable. It's sooo soft on our skin, yet leaves our skin so smooth!? We can't understand the sorcery, but we won't question it!

 

Here's what Ecovibe had to say:

 

WHY USE A KONJAC SPONGE?

The ultimate skincare routine game changer. A konjac sponge is the secret to seriously smooth skin.

The sponge is made from all natural Konjac root (a root vegetable that grows in Asia), they're a super gentle way to exfoliate dead or dry skin during your daily face wash. 

DIRECTIONS FOR USE & CARE: 

  1. Soak in warm water until fully expanded
  2. Use with or without cleanser
  3. Start cleaning your face - work in circular massage like motions
  4. Rinse the sponge, squeeze, and leave to air dry. 

Top tip:  Konjac sponges harden when dry, so simply let them soak in the shower or sink for a minute to soften them up before using.

Care tip: Once a week, drop your Konjac sponge into a bowl of boiling water for a couple of minutes to sanitize it. 

The unique, net-like structure of the Konjac sponge gently massages the skin to stimulate blood flow & cell turnover, while lifting make-up and grime for a radiant, peachy soft complexion. Originally created for babies, these facial sponges are super soft and ideal for delicate or sensitive skin.


They will gently cleanse the face, removing dirt, excess oils, flaky skin and blackheads, without the need to use an additional cleanser.

 

So, what is a Konjac sponge?

The Japanese have long been at the cutting-edge of skincare & the Konjac plant has been a vital part of their diet, skincare and medicine for centuries.

Despite its name, it’s not at all like the sponge you keep on your kitchen sink. It’s a sponge that’s made from the root of a Konjac plant (a porous vegetable that grows in Asia), which is why it feels almost rubbery once it gets wet. It’s 100-percent natural and plant-based.

 

What does It do?

Konjac sponges don’t have any magical ingredients that turn your skin into a shiny little pearl, but that’s not really the point of them—they’re meant to be used as an incredibly gentle exfoliator that’s safe on virtually all skin types (though anyone with rosacea or perioral dermatitis should still consult their dermatologist, first).

 

How do you use a Konjac sponge?

Our Konjac sponge is dry and hard. To use it, soak the sponge for 5–10 minutes until it expands and fully softens, then squeeze out the excess water right before you use it.

Once your sponge is ready, drizzle face wash over the sponge and gently massage your face in circular motions until your skin is clean and your makeup is removed. If you don’t like the idea of really buffing your cleanser into your skin, you can always rub it over your damp skin after cleansing it to pick up excess skin cells. Then rinse out the sponge and hang it (or stand it up) to air-dry over night.
