The natural Konjac Sponge is a great alternative to the natural sea sponge (which is a living creature!).
This sponge is made from the the root of a konjac plant and is hard until moistened when it becomes silky soft. Beautifully gentle, even soft enough for babies and great for applying facial washes and even for removing make up.
The sponge should NOT be wrung out, but should be allowed to dry naturally. As with any sponge, you should replace every 2 - 3 months. Your konjac sponge is compostable.
