And why is it a must for your skin care
The Konjac sponge has been a Japanese staple for over 100 years. This all-natural facial and body sponge is a gentle method to cleanse, exfoliate, care for and smooth your skin.
Whether you're a newcomer to Konjac Sponge or just want to know how to take care of yours, you'll find information here.
The Miracle of Konjac
Konjac plant fibers are rich in vitamins A, B, C, D and E. They are also full of proteins, lipids, fatty acids, antioxidants and natural minerals such as copper, zinc, iron and magnesium.
With so many amazing ingredients, the benefits are plentiful. The Konjac sponge is ideal for thorough cleaning of the skin pores and for removing dead skin cells, blackheads, dirt and oil. It can also help moisturize and balance the skin's pH, and is particularly good for dry spots and eczema.
As Konjac sponges are softer than a loofah and much finer than a cloth, they are a gentler alternative to body brushes and towels for sensitive skin.
How to use it
A konjac sponge is naturally small and hard. Before using it, you need to soak the sponge in warm water for 15 minutes or until it is soft.
The Japanese first used the Konjac sponge because of its softness in babies.
We borrowed this idea and made our super soft Konjac sponge the perfect companion for our Petit Pai – apple and mallow flower hair and body wash. Formulated with gentle plant substances, the gentle laundry ensures a soothing bathing experience.
Apply a pea-sized amount to the soaked sponge and gently squeeze it to form a foam. The foam moisturizes the skin and hair during cleaning.
For sensitive skin
Our Gentle Genius Camellia & Bergamot Body Wash also contains a 100% natural, ultra-soft Konjac sponge. In combination with the gentle natural cleaning agents, a silky, generous foam without irritating sulfates is created, which makes the skin feel hydrated and calm.
After you have softened the sponge, massage a small amount of detergent into the skin to create a generous foam.
Taking care of your sponge
With a little care, your sponge should last up to three months. Simply rinse after use, squeeze out excess water and let dry.
We recommend hanging it on a rack or storing it in a closed container in your refrigerator. It is best wherever it is cool and dry.
The sponge shrinks and hardens when dry. It is perfectly normal. Remember to soak it in hot (non-boiling) water for a few minutes before using it the next time.
If your sponge looks beyond its best, it's time to use a new one to take advantage. Remember, your Konjac sponge is completely natural. Dispose of your old sponge as food waste or compost.
