First used in Japan for cleaning babies' skin, the Konjac sponge is a natural product made from the konjac root vegetable. Konjac sponges are remarkably gentle at cleansing and exfoliating. Directions: The sponge is hard when dry, so soak it in warm water to moisten it. This may take a few minutes first time. It will expand to one and a half its original size. To remove excess water, gently squeeze the Konjac sponge between your palms. Once used, gently rinse it out and hang it up to dry. Suitable for all skin types, particularly sensitive skin, on account of how gentle they are. 100% natural and biodegradable. The sponge comes with a handle to hang it up to dry. Comes packaged.
