What is Konjac Sponge?
The Konjac Sponge is made from the root of the plant known in Japan as konnyaku (in Korea it is called gonyak, in Chinese referred as pinyin). Rich in minerals, the Koreans and Japanese have been experiencing the benefits of this plant for over 1,500 years, using it for consumption and for its gentle cleansing abilities. The sponge has been used in Japan for about a century for babies’ skin, but they’ve only started to be known around the world in recent years. Konjac fiber has the ability to absorb a lot of water which creates this bouncy and rubbery texture of the konjac sponge. Because of it's softness and finer textures, the Konjac Sponge is very gentle and safe to use even on sensitive skins. It is widely used all over the world now as the best face exfoliator for mature skin, sensitive skin, dry skin and even blemish-prone skins.
