WHAT IS A KONJACU SPONGE:
Konjacu sponges are made of 100% natural plant based Konjac root powder derived from the Amorphophallus konjac plant. The plant grows naturally in warm subtropical and tropical Asian countries, such as Japan, China and Indonesia. Amorphophallus konjac (konjac) is a remarkable plant that has been used in these countries for thousands of years as a food source and as a traditional medicine, renowned for its many health benefits. Konjac root is highly nutritious and is rich in many vitamins and minerals such as potassium, selenium, calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, copper, zinc, vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin D, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, vitamin C, pantothenate, niacin, fatty acids and folic acid. This makes it the perfect natural ingredient to be used in a facial or body sponge.
The daily use of this Konjacu sponge means that these vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and amino acids which are naturally found in the Konjac root powder will aid in bringing life to your skin, enhance its natural beauty and help create a clear and radiant complexion. Konjac root is naturally alkaline making it the perfect ingredient to balance the PH of your skin while gently cleansing and exfoliating without disturbing your skins own natural moisture layer.Each unique Konjacu sponge has certain natural extracts added into them to offer you a choice for your particular skin concerns or needs. The natural extract, be it green tea powder or crushed lavender flowers is added to the Konjac root powder in the cooking phase of the sponge. After cooking, the sponge is then left in a freezer at -20 degrees Celsius. This whole manufacturing process takes 12 days to ensure the highest quality sponge is achieved.
