The konjac sponge is softer than a brush and finer than the texture of a washcloth. It’s a cleanser and exfoliator in one. It increases circulation while naturally nourishes with vitamins A, B, C, D, and E, proteins, lipids, fatty acids, copper, zinc, iron, and magnesium. The sponge is so non-irritating that it works for any skin type. Even though it’s exceedingly gentle on your skin, it facilitates a deeper cleanse as when only using your hands and a cleanser. Get seriously smooth, super silky, beaming radiant skin.

Cleanse and exfoliate
The konjac sponge is remarkable in that it washes off dirt, pollutants, and oil while buffing your skin to flawlessness in an ultra-delicate fashion. It unclogs pores, dislodges blackheads, removes dead skin cells. It can help many skin concerns, from acne-prone, blackhead-prone, and oily skin to unblock and minimise pores to sensitive, dry, and sun-damaged skin to reduce dry and flaky areas. It even can be used to remove water-resistant SPF and makeup (although we recommend using a microfibre towel for the first cleanse and to remove makeup).
The sponge is made 100% from konjac root that itself is known for being rich in vitamins. Most notably vitamin A in that it rejuvenates the skin, vitamin C which helps in preserving the skin’s plumpness, and vitamin That can help guard against premature ageing and fine lines. Konjac is also known to be alkaline which gives the sponge its gentle soap-like cleansing ability.
Last but not least, as it’s made of konjac root, it’s organic, vegan, biodegradable, and free of dyes and fragrances that could potentially irritate the skin.
How To Use
When you receive your sponge, you’ll see that it’s in its dry form and sealed in airtight packaging. In this form, it’s small and rather hard.
Before use, soak it first in warm water until it expands. It will soak up a lot of water and become soft and rubber-like. A water barrier forms over the surface of the sponge which makes it feel very slick and slippery (almost slimy). With this barrier, the fibre itself hardly touches your skin and will thus not scrape or be harsh.
Gently squeeze the sponge between the palms to remove excess water (don’t wring it like a washcloth, that is don’t twist or squeeze it too hard since this can damage the sponge).
Use the sponge to wash your face. Work it across your face in a circular upward motion, focusing on your problem areas. You can use it with our without a cleanser, but you can also opt to first remove your makeup with a reusable cloth and then use it alone for the second cleanse.
After each use, rinse your sponge in clean cool water until you see that the water runs clear. Again, squeeze it gently between your palms to release excess water, then change it to dry, away from sunlight but in a well-ventilated space. If you find you don’t have such a place to store your sponge between uses, you can put it in a sealed container like a lidded Tupperware or a plastic bag and keep it in the refrigerator. It’s common that the sponge will be a bit damp when you take it out of the refrigerator. Storing your sponge like this can cause it to wear out quicker.
For subsequent uses wet the sponge with running warm water until it expands. If you care for it properly, it should last 4 to 6 weeks. Make sure you don’t twist, pull, or wring it as well as ensure that it dries properly between usage will give your sponge a longer life. As a guiding principle, when your sponge doesn’t expand, loses its original texture, or starts to disintegrate, it’s time to swap it with a new one.
