Konjac Sponges are a great tool to improve your skin. Especially in these cold winter months, the daily use of a Konjac sponge can make your skin go from dull to glowy. Our customers who purchased one of our Meraki sponges were surprised how well they work. In this article we would like to introduce the Konjac sponge to you, tell you more about usage and quality.
Firstly: What is Konjac?
Sorry to dissapoint you but our three porous sponges have little to do with Cognac brandy. Their name comes from the plant they are made of – the Konjac potato. Also called Konnyaku this vegetable is native to Asia and can be found growing wild in very high altitudes. Konjac is rich in minerals and naturally alkaline, which leaves your skin perfectly balanced. The plant has been used in the far east as medicine, food and beauty product for over a millennium. Due to the plant’s claimed health giving properties, the Konjac Sponge was originally created for delicate baby skin.
What are the benefits?
By using the sponge daily, the skin will regain softness. The Konjac exfoliates face and neck gently and recreates the skin’s natural glow. Thanks to its alkaline purposes the sponge balances the skin’s natural pH-value and moisturises. Thanks to its 100 % natural ingredients this product is non-toxic, sustainable, and biodegradable. Our sponges come in three versions: Green, which is infused with green tea and helps sun-damaged skin; black, which consists bamboo charcoal and is good against oily skin; white, which is the basic version suitable for all skin types.
How to use your Konjac sponge?
Wet the sponge before you use it. When it gets soft, gently massage it onto the skin and neck in circular motions. Rinse thoroughly after you have used it. Make sure that you store your sponge in a dry environment. This will prolong its life. You can either use the sponge with tab water or with your preferred cleansing product. Once weekly, clean the sponge in boiling water to remove any bacteria. Let the sponge cool down before you squeeze the remaining water out of it. Replace your Konjac sponge once every two to three months.
