This Konjac sponge is made from konjac root - is ideal for gentle cleansing, exfoliation and massage of your skin. It moisturises and helps with its alkaline properties in acne-prone skin. In addition, the sponge is due to its naturalness and its particularly soft, gentle surface ideal for washing infants and babies. HOW IT'S MADE During production, the root of the konjac plant is ground to flour. The resulting white Konjac flour is mixed with water and baked in the oven to a sponge. Incidentally, in Japan, the Konjac sponge has been used to wash the face every day for over 1500 years, while in Korea it is traditionally reserved for baby care.
