These natural sea sponges, from the coast of the Bahamas, are perfect for gentle body exfoliation. Use it to remove makeup, or as a wonderfully soft sponge for delicate baby skin. 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.
- This sponge is 100% natural and biodegradable
- The sponges are harvested on the ocean floor with the utmost regard for the existing marine life
- Great for all skin types, even those with very sensitive skin or allergies
- As a product of nature, every sponge is unique in both shape + size
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.
To use: 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.
