FACECLOTH? NO THANKS!

Today I would like to introduce you to an incredible skin care tool. It is vegan, free from chemicals, colouring, additives and irritants. It is 100% biodegradable and fully sustainable. This tool is made of 100% natural vegetable fibre, is packed with minerals and antioxidants and is environmentally safe and free of toxins.

The Konjac Sponge Co. travel set of face and body sponges. Comes in a bag for packing and for drying the sponges after use

This is the Konjac sponge! It is made from a potato (Konnyaku) which is a plant native to Asia, and grown at high altitudes. The Konjac potato is full of minerals and is naturally alkaline, which means it is gentle on your skin.

The Konnyaku potato has been used in China, Japan and Korea for over 1500 years in many ways, but especially as a beauty product. The first Konjac sponge that I bought and used was created for delicate baby skin!

Andalou Naturals konjac sponges

Other companies besides The Konjac Sponge Co sell Konjac sponges – like these ones from Andalou Naturals. Different shapes or colors can mean different degrees of hardness, or that some ingredients have been added to the sponge, like pink clay, volcanic scoria or other “things” –  which help with deep cleaning, cell stimulation and circulation and so on.

Young Living Orange Blossom Face Wash

I find the sponge is a perfect partner for my Young Living Orange Blossom Face Wash. In fact, just a pea-sized drop of face cleanser on the sponge makes the face wash go much farther, and it suds up much more than using a cotton pad or cotton ball. AND it is so soft on the facial skin…you won’t believe how wonderful it feels! Certainly much, much softer than a face cloth.

Wondering where you can purchase your own? Andalou Naturals are sold in many health food stores as well as some grocery store,s in their health or pharmacy section. I ordered my Konjac Sponge Co set from Amazon.ca – here.  You can also check out the website for the Konjac Sponge Co here.
