If you haven’t heard of a konjac sponge but clean, sustainable skincare is your jam – you’re in for a real treat. Konjac, also known as Konjaku (or our favorite, voodoo lily), has long been Asia’s secret to seriously flawless skin. At Sweet Cheeks Organic Konjac Skincare, our mission is to boost your skin’s glow without exposing you to dangerous chemicals, parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances or phthalates.
Our pure Konjac Skin Polishers are made from purified water, plants, flowers and a bit of ancient alchemy. Back to basics, right Sweet Cheeks? Yes, all those clean, green beauty trends you read about are teaching us the importance once again looking to plants for that natural glow--inside and out.
So what exactly is Konjac?
The Konjac plant is grown across Asia and is valued for its large, starchy roots that are powdered into glucomannan, a dietary fiber. The highest production of Konjac is in the region of Southwest China native to the panda bear. Awww. The plant is highly absorbent to clear skin of pimples, blackheads and irritations. It’s naturally alkaline to balance pH. It also has a surprising gelatinous quality to it that is immediately moisturizing. Konjac sponges are a natural skincare product proven to be much gentler alternative to abrasive chemicals or harsh scrubs for daily exfoliation.
How do you use your Konjac Sponge?
When dry, konjac sponges are hard and odd looking so it’s important to soak you sponge for a minute or so until it becomes soft and bouncy. Sweet Cheeks Organic Polishing Sponges can be used with or without your favorite skincare cleanser. Used morning and night, our Polishing Sponge is a no-fuss essential for balancing your skin’s pH, calming inflammation and removing dead skin cells to reveal smooth, glowing skin.
How often can I use the Konjac Sponge?
Unlike harsh chemicals or less gentle exfoliants, you can use your konjac skin polisher in the morning to gently wake up the skin and remove remnants of the night’s skincare product and in the evening, to remove the day’s makeup.
Our sponges are made with different active ingredients like peppermint, lycopene, lavender, aloe, collagen and charcoal to clarify and reduce inflammation.
Step 1: Gently buff in light, circular motions and don’t be afraid to use around the eyes - it’s that gentle. The domed area also gets into hard to those hard to reach places.
Step 2: Rinse, remove excess water and hang to dry.
But wait, will my sponge harbor yucky bacteria?
Sweet Cheeks Konjac Polishing Sponges are naturally antimicrobial and last for up to six weeks. But don’t worry, they’re preservative and chemical-free. After six weeks, compost your konjac sponge-they’re environmentally safe.
