Konjac Facial Sponge: Why and How to use It?

Konjac sponge has been used for centuries, with its source from Japan. This sponge has a wide range of benefits and uses, making it valuable in the natural cosmetics market today.

 

Konjac sponge benefits for your skin

With several benefits attached to this sponge, the konjac sponge is a revolutionary 100% natural facial cleansing agent for flawless skin. This plant-based sponge can be used without other products due to its natural purifying and antibacterial properties.
  • Exfoliating & Toning: Mild on the skin, the enriched composition of vegetable fibres in the Konjac sponge manages to delicately exfoliate sensitive epidermis on the face while naturally toning the upper layer of the skin, thus enhancing skin radiance and softness.
  • Antibacterial: The antibacterial and cleansing nature of the Konjac sponge effectively fights against bacteria responsible for the appearance of imperfections (pimples, blackheads, etc.) on the skin. It helps in deeply purifying your skin's epidermis and naturally prepare it to receive due care tailored to your needs.

      How to use a konjac facial sponge?

      It couldn't be easier!

      The sponge swells on contact with water. Put your konjac sponge for a few seconds under running water so that it is moist and soft. The sponge would double in size and have a soft, significantly less abrasive texture when ready to use. You can use it alone, with a cleanser or with a face oil of your choice.

      It is recommended to make circular movements on the face with the konjac sponge to increase its effectiveness. In the morning, we suggest that you cleanse your skin with water and a konjac sponge. At night, you can add a cleanser to help remove dirt or make-up residue from your skin. 

      Usage tips:

      • Avoid putting too many abrasive cosmetics on your sponge as this damages it.
      • Make sure that it is moist and soft before usage to prevent scratches on the skin.
      • Avoid rubbing your face too hard; this will damage your skin

          Choosing the Right Konjac Sponge for your Skin Type

          The use of the konjac sponge is beneficial for all skin types. Recommended for oily skin since it eliminates impurities from the face and reduces excess sebum. For more sensitive skin, using the konjac sponge alone without soap keeps the pH of the skin balanced.

          Green Tea Konjac Sponge: This balances and enhances your skin tone while healing and treating facial blemishes. Suitable for normal and combination skin.

          Lavender Konjac Sponge: The calming and soothing properties of lavender make this sponge ideal for sensitive and reactive skin.

          What to do with your konjac sponge at the end of its life?
