Natural Sea Sponge
These natural sea sponges offer a spa like experience every day! Sustainably harvested in the Gulf of Mexico and the Bahamas, these are the softest, most luxurious sponges you can buy.
They are perfect for gentle body exfoliation. The minerals contained in sea sponges nourish and benefit the skin. These include, but are not limited to: calcium, magnesium, sodium, iron, zinc and potassium. Simply rinse and hydrate.
Natural sea sponges are a renewable resource. When sponges are harvested, the sponge divers hand cut each sponge to ensure that more than one inch of the base remains intact. The sponge then re-grows back to its original form within 3-5 years. Studies show that areas harvested actually increase the population density of the sponges.
- As a product of nature, each sponge is unique in both shape + size, but will measure at least 5" or larger
- Sold Individually
- 100% natural and biodegradable
- Harvested on the ocean floor with the utmost regard for the existing marine life
- Once the sponge is harvested, it is thoroughly cleaned. You may find small traces of algae, but these do not affect the quality of the sponge.
- Great for all skin types, even those with very sensitive skin or allergies
Wet the sponge and use it gently to massage the skin in circular motions. The sponge can be used on the body, neck and face. Rinse the sponge thoroughly in clean water after each use.
Caring for your sponge:
Every few weeks, soak your sponge in 1 cup warm water with 1 tablespoon baking soda for 15 minutes. Then rinse and let dry (preferably hang it in a mesh bag.) The baking soda cleans the sponge as well as revitalizes its cellular structure, increasing durability. After each use, allow your sponge to completely dry. Don't keep it in the shower, hang it somewhere where it can dry thoroughly. Your sponge can last for years if properly cared for.
To disinfect your sponge:
Soak it in 1/4 cup hydrogen peroxide and 1 cup water, which will clean and re-bleach the sponge. Or soak it in 1 tablespoon apple cider or white vinegar mixed in 1 cup of warm water.
