The Konjac Sponge Company Review

Hi Lovelies,

Welcome back! And if you are new here, welcome 💕💕💕

So I was recently contacted by the Konjac Sponge Company and offered some of their products in exchange of the honest review, and I immediately said yes! You see, I have been using Konjac sponges for a few years now, even though I never reviewed them yet.. until now :) Now is the perfect time, would you say so? I knew you will say that, I am glad we are in agreement here :)
So, without further goofing around, let's start! First of all let me explain what the konjac sponge is, for those of you who don't know. It is a facial (or body) sponge, entirely natural, made from vegetable called Konjac Potato orKonnyaku is a perennial plant native to Asia, and can be found growing wild at very high altitudes. A totally natural food source, konjac is 97% water, rich in mineral goodness and low in calories. Naturally alkaline, konjac is pH neutral which leaves skin perfectly balanced. And yes, it is the same vegetable that the noodles are made of! Learn more here. That boggled my mind when I first heard of it a couple years back, but I also knew I wanted/needed to try it soon, as that sounded like a perfect solution for my super sensitive skin. You see, with the skin that is so sensitive and dermatitis prone, many of the products and even cloths are too harsh for me, and I am afraid to micro tear the skin, esp now that the weather is harsh enough as it is. So the fact that it is mild exfoliant that also detoxifies and corrects ph of your skin, was the draw enough to go out and purchase one. Luckily these are wildly available in health food stores and many other places. And I loved it from the first use!

Kognac Sponge Company makes quite a few different kind of sponges in different shapes and sizes, infused with gorgeous clays and charcoal, for all kinds of different skin types, mild enough for babies (I used it for my kid when she was a newborn) and now they have a new addition to the family, a tattoo aftercare sponge, how cool is that?

Over the years I have tried many kinds of kognac sponges, and I loved them all, but I have to say I used to go by default and purchase the traditional facial sponges over and over again, so it was fun to receive something a bit different, even though it is cut from the same cloth (couldn't resist a little joke, sorry!) in the shape of an angel and two adorable "Rudolph's Nose" mini sponges. I have to say it came in a adorable package with everything you see in this photo, the Christmas sock, the candy cane (that was swiftly claimed by my kids) and even Christmas card with my name and hand signed by the whole team, that melted my heart, thanks guys! If you are wondering, this angel folds out into 15x15cm square, and those little "Rudolph's Nose" sponges are perfect for getting into nooks and crannies of the face, for example taking eye make up off, but on their own they are a bit small for the whole face, you might want to use them as addition to your regular sponge.

Now, I should also add that you have to replace your sponge every 1-3 months, as as all natural products, it will start to show wear after some time. But the good thing is you can add it to your compost, as it will disintegrate well and you won't certainly be adding more waste to the landfills. Want to hear some more benefits? It's 100% natural vegetable fibres, packed with minerals and antioxidants. Non toxic. 100% free from impurities and pollutants. Earth friendly. 100% cruelty free & certified vegan. Naturally sustainable. Environmentally Safe. Kind to The Environment and your skin. 100% colouring, additive free and biodegradable too.

Now, you might be wondering why should you choose The Konjac Sponge Company over some cheaper brands you might have seen around? Here is the company's answer to that:

To confirm- we are not picking on ANY brand of sponges in particular here, this is just what we have found from our research!
-We use food grade flour in our sponges, this is what makes our sponges so pure.
-We only add natural clays, teas and charcoal, you will notice other brands can have very bright colours, this is as they have had colouring's or even artificial colouring added.
-We have a patented formula which means our sponges have a unique cellular structure.
-Many konjac factories actually use chemicals during the manufacturing process, I believe to speed up maturing time, and to stabilize product. But you will not find this information on the packaging, nor will the suppliers usually be aware of this.

Our product ingredients are nothing but pure konjac fiber, and the relevant clay/tea/Charcoal, that's it! Our products actually take several days to mature naturally.
Additionally, we now have over 20 awards for our products, we think this speaks for itself when it comes down to quality and reliability!
We cannot say that this is the case for EVERY sponge, but as the world leading brand of konjac sponges we are contacted on a very regular basis by numerous factories (That are not aware of how we work and our factory.) who produce for many different brands. Upon looking into this information they provide we find the information on the chemicals being used.

So, as you can see, it is better to stick with the trusted brand here, I know I do!
Oh, and did I mentioned that these would make a perfect natural present for the upcoming Christmas?
I know my friends are getting some in addition to other natural things I love :)

That is all for now
Lots of Love
