Have you heard of konjac sponge? This is the Japanese secret of smooth skin that you can start using now for amazing results. Konjac sponge is vegan-friendly and sustainable, and it just might be the thing your skincare routine has been missing.

Konjac sponge comes from the konjac root, a root vegetable that grows in Asia. It’s a great tool for cleansing and exfoliating loved by millions of people around the world. Konjac sponges were first used by Japanese farmers for cleansing babies’ skin, which tells us they’re a gentle way to exfoliate.

They come in different colors which means they have different active ingredients. Grey konjac sponges are infused with charcoal, the green ones contain green tea, etc.

How do you use a konjac sponge? It’s easy! You can use it with water only or with your favorite cleanser. Soak it in water then gently squeeze and it’s ready. It’s gentle enough to use around your eyes, but be careful with the motions.

You can find konjac sponges that are 100% biodegradable so you don’t have to worry about the impact on the environment!
