Konjac Charcoal Face Sponge
This charcoal sponge is creating using the root fibers of the konyakku plant, which are purified and spun into a puff that is incredibly water-retentive. Charcoal helps to draw out daily impurities, freeing toxins from your pores. When used, there is a water barrier between sponge and skin, meaning it cleanses without scratching or irritating. The sponge is ideal for daily use, particularly for those with sensitive and acne-prone skin.
Use Instructions: Soak sponge in warm water until it puffs up and rehydrates. The first time will take a minute or two, and rehydration time will lessen after each use. It will expand about 50% and be soft and squishy like sponge cake. After wetting, apply your preferred cleanser (or use without), rub in circular motions to remove dirt from pores.
Care: After each use, remove excess water from sponge by pressing between your palms. Hang to dry. Replace once your sponge starts to crumble (usually around 3-6 months, but may be shorter depending on use and storage). If you see any mold or bacteria growth, or notice discoloration or funny smells, discontinue use and replace. Some users boil their konjac sponges in water to sanitize, or saturate in water and microwave for 20 seconds, to help prevent this.
