The Konjac Sponge – Miracle or Myth?


What Is A Konjac Sponge?

Konjac Sponge

Konjac sponges come from the konjac plant, a perennial found in Japan, which is full of nourishment your skin needs to look it's best including vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin D,  vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, vitamin C, and folic acid. The Konjac Sponge has been used in Japan for hundreds of years and its now making its way into our beauty routines.

Gently washing with these naturally alkaline facial sponges helps to balance your skin’s acidity while enriching it with these vital nutrients. Konjac sponges exfoliate as they cleanse, helping to remove dead skin cells and encouraging the growth of new ones. The result? Smooth, glowing skin free of toxins and impurities.

In the next 5 minutes you're going to know everything you need to know about the konjac sponge and what it can do for you. We've even included a bonus offer at the end of this post, just for you - enjoy!

Why Should It Be Part Of Your Skin Care Routine?

Konjac Sponge Benefit #1: Konjac Sponges are made of 100% natural ingredients, literally from the vegetable fibers of the konjac plant; and of course they are non-toxic and even biodegradable.

Konjac Sponge Benefit #2: Thoroughly but gently cleanses the skin to remove make-up, dirt and oil.

Unlike synthetic sponges, the Konjac Sponge effectively removes dirt, grime and other impurities without irritating your skin. It’s also rich in vitamins, antioxidants, fatty acids and minerals that help restore skin to its former glory. The Konjac Sponge is packed with naturally occurring vitamins A, E, D, B1, B2, B6, B12 and C. While these all-natural ingredients nourish your skin, the sponge’s texture gently exfoliates it to remove dead skin cells and reveal smoother, younger looking skin.

Konjac Sponge Benefit #3: Gently exfoliates to reveal brighter, radiant looking skin.

Men and women who have tried our Konjac Sponges reveal that they can see the difference after just one use. Their skin went from lackluster to bright through the simple use of these exfoliating sponges! This can be attributed to Konjac’s ability to gently exfoliate the skin. Exfoliation is a process by which dead skin and impurities are removed. Although we naturally shed skin cells every day, it is not enough to go against the stresses our skin goes up against such as cosmetic products and pollution. If left unchecked, these impurities can embed themselves in our pores and cause problems such as oiliness and acne. This is the main reason why konjac sponges are so popular – they are effective in removing dirt and oil from the surface of the skin but gentle enough to use every day. In fact, Konjac Sponges are so gentle, unlike harsh chemical scrubs or abrasive facial sponges, that one might not at first realize their power. When you look at the mirror and see the amazing results . . . game over.

Konjac Sponge Benefit #4: Hydrates without stripping the skin of the natural oils that protect it.

Another attribute to love about Konjac Sponges is their ability to cleanse the skin without stripping it of its natural oils. The skin’s natural oils or emollients provide lubrication and waterproofing of the skin. Without it, the skin will become dry, brittle and prone to irritation. Other sponges available on the market as well as some oil controlling chemicals used to manage acne are aimed at stopping oil glands from producing these natural emollients. While they may offer temporary relief from acne, these treatments tend to dry out the skin to the point that it overcompensates with excessive oil production. Hence, the cycle begins again.

Konjac Sponge Benefit #5: Balances skin pH levels.

Konjac sponges are able to cleanse the skin thoroughly without stripping away the skin’s natural emollients. With continued use, konjac sponges will help restore the skin’s natural pH balance. This is why we strongly recommend our  konjac sponges to those who suffer from irritable, acne prone skin and suggest using them every day.

You might be wondering why we include two konjac sponges in each pack. Well, it’s primarily because we know no two skin types are the same – so we want to cover all the bases! The white konjac sponge is great for everyday use. It gently exfoliates the skin and removes all traces of make-up, oil and dirt. On the other hand, the black sponge is for deep cleansing. If you have combination to oily or acne-prone skin, we recommend using the black sponge once a week. It is suited for everyday use of people with ‘problematic’ skin – acne prone, sensitive or oily. In other words, we want to give you the best of both worlds.

At first glance, the sponge may not look like something you want to rub on your face. When you open our two in one Konjac Sponge Pack, you’ll be surprised at the hard, lumpy feel of the sponges. Don’t worry - all it needs is a little water! Once you’ve soaked it in good old H20, they transform into soft, bouncy sponges. Once wet, the konjac becomes slightly alkaline in nature which effectively neutralizes acidic grime. The alkalinity helps in dissolving dirt that has found its way into your pores and rinses them away with every wash.
