Meet the konjac sponge, a gentle cleansing exfoliator made from the konjac root, a porous root vegetable that grows in Asia.  Konjac sponges deeply cleanse, gently exfoliate and refine, revitalise and refresh your skin for a radiant complexion. Gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin and babies, our velvety Konjac Sponges are the ultimate tool in natural, effective skincare.


We offer 2 variations of konjac sponges.

  • The green sponges are infused with green tea. Antioxidant-rich and anti-aging green tea helps calm and soften the skin for a fresh, revitalised complexion.
  • The black sponges are infused with skin clarifying activated charcoal. 


What is Konjac?

The Konjac potato -or Konnyaku- is a perennial plant native to Asia and can be found growing wild at very high altitudes. A totally natural food source, Konjac is 97% water, rich in mineral goodness and low in calories. The plant is naturally alkaline, which leaves skin perfectly balanced. Konnyaku has been used in Korea, Japan and China for over 1,500 years as medicine, food, a dieting aid and a beauty product. Due to the plant's claimed health giving properties, the Konjac Sponge was originally created for delicate baby skin.


Konjac Benefits:

  • Extremely gentle, even for the most sensitive skin. Silky soft when wet!
  • Great makeup removers! 
  • They provide a deep clean. Ideal as a daily exfoliator.
  • Biodegradable, compostable and environmentally friendly
  • Reusable - the better care you give the sponge the longer it lasts, which can be up to 3 months.


How To Use your Konjac Sponge:For first use, simply soak the sponge for about 10 to 20 minutes allowing it to expand and soften. Give the sponge a squeeze to release excess water and then add your go-to cleanser. From there, use the sponge to gently scrub your face in circular motions. Focus on problem areas, and use twice daily for the best effects. Once cleansed and satisfied, rinse out the sponge well and hang it to air-dry over night. The konjac sponge can be used on its own, or with the cleanser of your choice. If you use a cleanser, use less than normal, as the sponge helps the cleanser to work harder and go further.
