Konjac Sponge Co.


The popular konjac sponge, made from the konjac potato or konnyaku is a perennial plant native to Asia, and can be found growing wild at very high altitudes. A fully natural food source, konjac is 97% water, and is rich in minerals and antioxidants. It is naturally alkaline, with a neutral pH that leaves skin perfectly balanced. First discovered in the Indochinese region, konnyaku has been used in Korea, Japan and China for over 1,500 years as medicine, food, as well as a beauty product. It is highly prized for its health giving properties, and the sponges, for both the face and body, are fully biodegradable and sustainable, with the plant fibre mixed and handmade into sponges with natural water that is filtered through volcanic rock. The sponges are non-toxic, gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin, and are 100% vegan and additive-free. They deeply cleanse, exfoliate and detoxify the skin for a radiant complexion, and are the ultimate in natural, effective skin care.
