Konjac Sponges

From £8.99

Description

100% konjac fibre, from the root of the Amorphallus konjac plant

  • No colouring, no additive
  • 100% biodegradable

The natural alkalinity of the plant balances the acidity of the skin and regulates sebum secretion. The unique net like structure of the sponge gently massages the skin and stimulates blood flow and new growth of skin cells, leaving the skin soft, clean and refreshed.

WHAT IS KONJAC ?

Konjac is a perennial plant, native to subtropical to tropical eastern Asia, widely grown for its edible corm (tuber) in Japan, south China and Indonesia.
It is also known as konjaku potato or elephant yam for its tuber like root and its distinctive lily like flower with its elongated inner spike (spadix) earned it the folkloric names of devil's tongue and voodoo lily.

The edible tuber is made into white or black cakeskonnyaku by its japanese name, that can be grated into noddles.

The fibre of the same tuber is also processed to make face and body sponges.
