The konjac potato, a medicinal Asian plant, is used to make some wonderfully effective beauty care products because of its rich moisture and nutrient content. Here’s how the konjac face sponge works:
- Gently cleanses & exfoliates your face
- Provides rich hydration & nourishment
- Improves skin’s ability to retain moisture
- Promotes healthy circulation
- Promotes new cell growth for a younger complexion
- Naturally alkaline, supports skin’s natural pH balance
- Removes dirt, excess oil & impurities
Did You Know? Bamboo charcoal is a wonderfully effective blemish treatment; it actually absorbs excess oil from the skin, while its antibacterial powers kill off the germs that cause acne.
Why use Konjacu’s range of konjac sponges?
- They contain no preservatives or additives
- Handmade in small batches to ensure consistent quality
- No synthetic fragrances or artificial colours
- No harsh mould-prevention agents (sponges are packaged while dry)
- Produced using sustainable & ethical practices
- Not tested on animals
- Biodegradable & compostable; 100% eco-friendly
- Submerge the sponge in hot water for 2-3 minutes, until it becomes completely soft & doubles in size.
- Squeeze out the excess water & gently massage your skin with small circular movements.
- After use, rinse the sponge & hang it in a cool dry place, using the cotton string attached.
- Your sponge should last 2-3 months with proper care; replace it once it starts to break down. Konjacu sponges are fully biodegradable & compostable.
- Always rinse your Konjacu sponge well after use & hang it in a cool dry place.
- Avoid wringing out the sponge, as this will tear the delicate fibres; rather press the excess water out gently.
- When dry, the sponge will shrink & harden; simply rehydrate it again before each use.
- Never leave your sponge in the shower or a wet area.
- To sterilise your sponge, submerge it in boiling water for 2-3 minutes.
- Keep out of reach of children; may pose a choking hazard.
- Never use the sponge when dry.
- Konjacu sponges are not edible.

17 out of 17 people would recommend this product31/03/2018, By ZonelleNot quite sure how it works as well as it does, but I works beautifully.12/02/2018, By MoniqueThe first time I used my Konjacu sponge, i used it without my face wash and it worked so well. My skin felt super soft and smooth afterwards. After that I used with my face wash and the result was great too. It's just a bit tough getting the soap out of the sponge without squeezing too hard. But i would absolutely recommend it! When i ordered mine, I got the body sponge free, which is also really great!06/01/2018, By SarahLeaves my skin so smooth and soft06/09/2017, By SanI used this for a very long time, and it's a good sponge for gentle facial exfoliation. Left my my face feeling smooth and looking radiant. However, it didn't help much with my acne and blackheads, which were the same as they always were. Also, I feel like it didnt do much in the way of drawing out impurities. It did help with controlling sebum production, as my skin wasn't oily and shiny after I used this. The sponge does take at least 3 days to dry completely, so if you plan on using it as a cleanser every day, you may want to invest in more than one.26/07/2017, By PamelaI love this sponge. It's the perfect amount of exfoliation to cleanse and prepare my skin for moisturiser. Love it. Took only a week to clear up a patch of dry skin and acne14/06/2017, By RethaThis is great for everyday exfoliation. It is so gentle and I can see a difference in my skin.03/06/2017, By Jo HGot this because I have combination skin and am battling the worst acne right now and the reviews were all SO GOOD. While it is gentle, can't say I really see a difference in my skin. Will review again if anything changes :)25/07/2016, By ElanieThis little sponge was the first thing Ive ordered from Faithful to nature. I was a little sceptical as I have used so many products over the years. But this sponge exceeded my expectations! My skin is so smooth and it really helps clear your skin! I love this product!12/05/2016, By MatshidisoMy skin showed improvements within 2 days. Thank you faithful to nature23/02/2016, By CaterinaSuch a great little sponge, gentle on the face and exfoliates softly. Remember to rinse after use (if using a facewash) and softly squish it in a towel to remove excess water. Hang it up (not inside your shower) to dry out between washes else bacteria will start growing in it.10/10/2015, By SaraI bought this for my son who battles with breakouts and blackheads. Since using the sponge his skin has completely cleared up. He is thrilled with his sponge and won use anything else anymore.12/08/2015, By NikeI deliberated whether I could spend this much on a sponge, but Im glad I did. I have ditched my toner and exfoliator and only use a cleanser or soap if I have been wearing make up. I have combination skin, prone to blemishes. This sponge has really made a difference to my skin. I will purchase again.07/07/2015, By AnushkaTheres something very wonderful about using an all natural product on your face. This sponge is amazing. Its like an in house spa treatment everyday. Definitely a great buy. Theres no need to even use an exfoliator.11/06/2015, By AngeliqueI adore this sponge! It shortens my daily routine by so much.12/05/2015, By ElaineI love this sponge, its very gentle on my sensitive acne skin. I store my sponge in a plastic container in the fridge.06/03/2015, By LelanieOf all natural products, this must be the most incredible spongy thingy that I came across. I am totally amazed how my skin feels after just one use - soft as a babys bum! I didn even use any soap with it and my skin looks and feels clean and smooth, it is just wow! Its almost hard to believe...but the proof is in the pudding.03/02/2015, By AdeleAnother awesome addition in my battle against blackheads. My skin feels incredibly soft and has already started expelling blackheads. Before going green I resigned myself to the fact that Ill go to my grave with clogged pores, but since Ive been using natural products my skin is cleaner, brighter and more refined. I love the tingle whilst gently scrubbing my face with my charcoal sponge, and after only a week the difference is already visible. Will buy again, for sure!
