How To Use Your Konjac Sponge?
Konjac root has been used for more than 2,000 years in Asian culture, and konjac sponges have been popular there for a long time.

The process of creating Konjac is simple. All it takes is a konjac powder mix with calcium hydroxide, heated, frozen, and dried. The alkaline helps to balance skin pH levels.

Konjac sponges increase circulation, exfoliate, and cleanse pores. They can also be used to help dry patches, acne, blackheads, and eczema.

One of the major benefits of using konjac sponges is that they nourish the skin with vitamins A, B, C, D, and E. Besides, they are eco-friendly, non-toxic, and biodegradable.

The konjac sponge can be used with just water as it has natural cleansing properties as it can even inhibit the bacteria that produce acne.


Step 1

Rinsed and soak the Konjac Sponge with warm water until softened and expanded. Keep in mind that it might take up to 15 minutes of soaking for first-time use until it becomes soft.


It is better to soak the sponge with hot or warm water as it helps to make the texture of the sponge smoother.


Step 2

Cleanse your face with konjac sponge daily. You can combine it with a cleanser to make the sponge even softer for a therapeutic experience.



Step 3

Use circular motions to massage your face gently. Start from the middle of the face and move outwards in an upward direction. When you do this, you produce a lifting effect to prevent sagging skin and shape the face for a slimmer look.


Be careful not to be too harsh rubbing on the acne area and around the eye area.

Konjac sponges can be used on the face and the body. Just take your konjac sponge into the shower with you, and gently massage the body parts that are dry, flaky, or acne-prone. Konjac sponges will deep clean and exfoliate your skin.

They are perfect for exfoliating elbows, ankles, knees, and the top of arms.


Step 4

Gently rinse your face with lukewarm water and pat dry.



Step 5

Once you finish, rinse the sponge with clean water. Press the sponge gently in between your hands to drain water. DO NOT twist or press too hard. Be careful if you have long nails as it may tear the sponge.


Finally, hang the sponge in a well-ventilated area to dry. Never expose the konjac sponge to direct sunlight, and be careful not to leave the sponge in a humid place.  You can store the sponge in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

We suggest you replace the konjac sponge every three months for better results.
