The unique, net-like structure of the Konjac sponge gently massages the skin to stimulate blood flow & cell turnover, while lifting make-up and grime for a radiant, peachy soft complexion. This sponge is gentle for every day facial care.
So, what is a Konjac sponge?
The Japanese have long been at the cutting-edge of skincare & the Konjac plant has been a vital part of their diet, skincare and medicine for centuries.
Despite its name, it’s not at all like the sponge you keep on your kitchen sink. It’s a sponge that’s made from the root of a Konjac plant (a porous vegetable that grows in Asia), which is why it feels almost rubbery once it gets wet. It’s 100-percent natural and plant-based.
What does It do?
Konjac sponges don’t have any magical ingredients that turn your skin into a shiny little pearl, but that’s not really the point of them—they’re meant to be used as an incredibly gentle exfoliator that’s safe on virtually all skin types (though anyone with rosacea or perioral dermatitis should still consult their dermatologist, first).
How do you use a Konjac sponge?
Our Konjac sponge is dry and hard. To use it, soak the sponge for 5–10 minutes until it expands and fully softens, then squeeze out the excess water right before you use it.
Once your sponge is ready, drizzle face wash over the sponge and gently massage your face in circular motions until your skin is clean and your makeup is removed. If you don’t like the idea of really buffing your cleanser into your skin, you can always rub it over your damp skin after cleansing it to pick up excess skin cells. Then rinse out the sponge and hang it (or stand it up) to air-dry over night.

Green tea extract is naturally packed with antioxidants, which have a cell-protecting function. It has strong antioxidant benefits that protect the skin from the damaging effects of free radicals. The natural ingredient softens and plumps to improve elasticity and refresh your skin’s appearance. This is particularly suitable for those who wish to protect the skin from ageing.
TIP: Konjac sponges harden when dry, so simply let them soak in the shower or sink for a minute to soften them up before using.
