To get the most out of your new Konjac sponge, give yourself a little time to get it ready. When you take it out of the package you’ll notice that it’s dry and hard: not something you’d want to rub on your skin! Soak your sponge in warm water for up to a minute until it is saturated and soft.
Once your exfoliating sponge is ready to use, gently rub it on your face and decolette in a circular motion. Move in an upward direction and avoid aggressive rubbing on areas affected by acne or blemishes. You do not need to use facial cleanser with your konjac sponge, but if you’d like to you certainly can.
To get the most out of your sponge it is important to take good care of it after use. Keep it in a well-ventilated area to dry after each time you wash with it. Use boiling water to sterilize it once a week. If you care for it well, your sponge will reward you with 8-12 weeks of use. Enjoy!
Question: So what are konjac sponges anyway?
Answer: Konjac sponges are a natural alternative for exfoliating and cleansing your skin. We love these little guys because they’re 100% biodegradable, eco-friendly, and are full of vitamins and minerals that skin just loves. Oh, and they are super gentle and won’t rip your face up.
Question: What are konjac sponges made of?
Answer: They’re made from a powder derived from the konjac plant’s root (surprised?), a perennial you’ll find in Japan. Because they’re plant-based, we can skip out on all of the artificial dyes and other junky ingredients that do nothing for your skin’s health. Instead, the konjac plant’s natural nourishing properties enrich your skin while exfoliating and cleansing.
Question: Are these organic konjac sponges?
Answer: Our konjac sponges are not certified organic, however they contain nothing toxic and are nature-derived.
Question: How many konjac sponges are included in a package?
Answer: You’ll get two in each konjac sponge set.
Question: Why are my konjac sponges different colors?
Answer: Because they’re made a little differently. The white sponge is 100% Konjac Glucomannan. The black sponge is 99% Konjac. The other 1% is bamboo charcoal, which gives the sponge a little extra “oomph” that’s perfect for certain skin types.
Question: What’s the best konjac sponge for my skin type?
Answer: If you have sensitive, dry, or combination skin, stick with the white sponge. It will cleanse and exfoliate without irritation. The black sponge is perfect if you’re prone to acne: use it once a week for a clear, clean, and happy complexion.
Question: My konjac sponge is rock hard! Am I really supposed to clean my face with this?
Answer: They are kind of like hockey pucks when they first come out of the package, aren’t they? That’s because they haven’t been soaked yet. Before you start cleansing, soak your sponge in warm water for a few minutes. Once it’s saturated and soft, gently squeeze out any excess water. You’ll be left with a pleasantly bouncy little sponge that will feel amazing on your face.
Question: Can I use other products with my konjac sponge?
Answer: Absolutely! Apply a small amount of your favorite natural facial cleanser to your sponge to combine its cleaning and exfoliating powers. When you’re done, rinse it thoroughly and dry in a well-ventilated place. No cleanser on hand? No problem. Your sponge will be just as effective on its own.
Question: How long will my konjac sponge last?
Answer: With proper care your konjac sponge will stay in great shape for 8 to 12 weeks.
Question: Okay, so how do I care for konjac sponges?
Answer: Rinse your sponge gently after each use under warm running water. Gently squeeze out any excess moisture (don’t twist or be too aggressive), then hang it out to dry in a well-ventilated area. We recommend sterilizing your sponge in boiling water once a week or so to get rid of any bacteria or build-up that could speed up its deterioration or negatively impact your skin’s health.
