KONJAK OR THE GENTLE WAY TO EXFOLIATE

by - August 17, 2020


If some of you have told me about loving and using the Konjac Sponges, many of you have never tried it.
I am a minimalist when it comes to beauty products, that's why I am very fond of the Konjac sponge, it is the perfect tool to exfoliate my very sensitive skin.
✖️What is Konjac ? 
Also known as konjaku, konnyaku potato, devil's tongue, voodoo lily, snake palm, or elephant yam, konjac is an Asian perennial plant which can either be found growing wild or is cultivated. 
It has been used in Korea, Japan and China for over 1,500 years as medicine, a natural food source, but also a beauty product, as the plant is naturally alkaline, which leaves skin perfectly balanced. 
Konjac sponges are made from roots and are very popular in Korea. That's actually how I discovered them last Christmas, as we had a Korean friend over. 
Since then I have been using them everyday.
They are 100% natural, non toxic, 100% biodegradable and fully sustainable, which I love.
Personally, I prefer to use 100% Pure Original Konjac Facial and Body Sponges for my everyday skincare routine. A sponge lasts 2 to 3 months, which is pretty economical as you don't need any further products to exfoliate or clean your face and body.
It is really gentle and suitable for all skin types, you just have to soak it in water in order to use it, and it is also an effective make up remover (no more pads !)
But you should know that Konjac sponges come in a variety of colors.
The dark ones contain bamboo charcoal ( I just gave one to my teenage daughter as it supposedly absorbs excess oils and bacteria) , green for green tea (protects against ageing) or green clay (fighting impurities and stimulating blood flow), pink for pink clay (calming the skin), etc. 
As it is very gentle, you can even use the natural one to clean your baby sensitive skin.
If you are tempted to try Konjac sponges, just be sure to buy authentic and natural products, I can give you some brands I like to use : Croll de Neke (sold in France in ethical shops or online at Greenweez ), Lamazuna or The Konjac Sponge Company who has a great website that tells you all you need to know about Konjac. 
Tell me, are you tempted to try it ?
