My three-year-old daughter loves scrubbing herself with this unique skincare product. Different than a typical synthetic or natural sea sponge, Konjac sponges are made from the root of a plant more commonly known for its use in the kitchen.
How to Use
The Konjac Baby Sponge can be used with a cleanser product, but works very well on its own with just water. This is especially useful when bathing babies and small children, as you don’t need to worry about getting soap in the eyes. When you first open up the package, the sponge feels soft, squishy, and somewhat gel-like. In the shower or bath, it softly cleanses and exfoliates without making skin dry.
Inside the Ingredients
Ingredient: Konjac Root Fiber (pure vegetable fiber).
|Extremely Safe||Reasonably Safe||Proceed with Caution||Insufficient Data|
Konjac root fiber is a food grade ingredient. It’s used to make a particularly delicious looking high-fiber, zero-calorie noodle product, and is used as a vegan substitute for gelatin. The plant itself is native to tropical and subtropical regions spanning from China and Japan to as far south as Indonesia.
How Long Does It Last?
The sponge lasts a few months, and once you’re done with it, it can be thrown in the compost pile. Gotta love the biodegradability.
It measures approximately 4 x 2.5 x 1.5 inches.
Where to Purchase
The Konjac Sponge Company Baby Sponge costs $16. Buy it online here.
