Let us introduce to you: the konjac sponge, a gentle and cleansing exfoliant made from the Konjac root, a porous root from Asia. Here are some facts and tips about this new miracle cure.
Konjac Sponge is extremely gentle on your skin
Konjac sponges are very, very sweet to your skin. They are gentler than a scrub and therefore ideal for daily exfoliation. You can also use them if you have sensitive skin, suffer from rosacea or dry flakes that are difficult to get rid of without irritating your skin.
Konjac Sponge is ideal for removing your make-up
They really take off all makeup. When used with cleanser and water, they remove more makeup than your hands alone. You can even use the sponge to remove mascara and other eye make-up.
Konjac Sponge gives you a radiant complexion
The konjac sponge gently exfoliates your skin by removing dead skin cells and giving your skin an even, radiant complexion. And the more you use the sponge, the more visible the results will be. Just don't expect the extremely shiny skin that you would get from a peel or a facial.
Konjac Sponge deep cleanses in just a few steps
How do you use the konjac sponge now? Well, very simple! Immerse the new sponge in water for about 5 to 10 minutes so that it expands and becomes soft. Remove them from the water and squeeze well so that all the excess water disappears (never wring!). Then add your cleanser and move the sponge over your skin in circular motions. When your skin is cleansed, rinse the sponge and hang it up to dry.
Konjac Sponge will not make your acne go away
While some companies claim their sponges use ingredients like coal to remove impurities from the skin, you shouldn't expect this to actually happen. They don't contain the active coal that would make the difference.
Konjac Sponge has an expiration date
Despite the fact that some sponges claim to be antibacterial, they are not self-cleaning. Therefore, always rinse your konjac sponge well after each use and throw it away after a month. For good hygiene, it is important to regularly disinfect the sponge by placing it in boiling water for a few minutes. The sponge can also be put in the washing machine, but put it in a laundry bag.
Konjac sponge can be used on the whole body
Konjac sponges were invented by Japanese farmers and initially used to wash babies because the sponge is so soft and natural. So you can use them all over your body, especially on places (such as the chest or back) that sometimes suffer from acne and need an extra deep cleaning.
Konjac Sponge can be composted
Because they are 100% biodegradable, you can simply throw them on the compost heap after use along with your green waste.

How do we use the Konjac Sponge?
To get the most out of your Konjac Sponge, we recommend that you follow the instructions below.
The sponges are packed dry and must first be placed in warm / lukewarm water for 5-10 minutes.
You can use the sponge both in the morning and in the evening. Before use, immerse the Konjac sponge in warm / lukewarm water a few times.
Gently squeeze the sponge in one hand or squeeze out the water between 2 hands. Never wring out.
Make sure the sponge is neither too wet nor too dry and make circular movements over your face, neck and décolleté. The sponge is so soft that you can also clean the skin around your eyes!
A massage with the Konjac sponge stimulates tired skin and supports skin renewal.
After use, squeeze excess water from the sponge (not too hard, as this will damage the sponge) and hang it away from the cord after use so that it can dry properly. If you put the sponge down, it stays wet on the bottom and shortens its lifespan. It is a natural product and is perishable if used incorrectly.
The sponge hardens after it dries, so always re-immerse it in warm / lukewarm water until it is soft again. For good hygiene, it is very important to regularly disinfect the sponge by placing it in boiling water for a few minutes. Especially with acne skin this is very important !!!
The sponge can also be washed in the washing machine, preferably in a laundry bag.
You can use the Konjac sponge for several months, depending on how often you use the sponge, how to maintain it and how it is stored. However, from a hygienic point of view, do not use the sponge for longer than 3 months.
