Elicious konjac sponzen zijn er in veel soorten

Konjac sponges are great natural facial cleansers with various benefits for all skin types. Since there are so many different colors available, here's an overview of the benefits of the different naturally colored Konjac sponges for every skin type.

Konjac sponges may look like a cross between a loofah, coral, and a sea sponge, but these little sponges are actually powerful facial and body cleansers by nature. Made from the root of the Konjac plant, Konjac sponges can be used to remove dirt, oil build-up and blackheads, to deeply cleanse pores and refresh a tired, dull or dry complexion. When beneficial ingredients are added such as pure clay, charcoal and more, they can be used for different skin types and address specific concerns. Because Elicious has a rich range, it can be difficult to find out what is best for your skin type, we will go into that in more detail here.

What is a Konjac sponge anyway?

Unlike loofahs, which are often made of plastic and end up in landfills, Konjac sponges are made from the powdered root of the konjac plant, a fibrous vegetable native to East Asia and used for many other purposes in cooking. Konjac sponges get their unique round shape through the molding process, where the mixture used to make the sponges is heated and then cooled to solidify the sponges. During this process, Konjac Sponges can also be infused with other ingredients to make them even more beneficial for specific skin types, such as charcoal, clay and other additives with different colors. Incredibly popular in Asia, Konjac Sponges are actually ideal for sensitive skin due to their soft, bouncy texture.

Pay attention to the correct quality because as with so many other products, there are also 'konjac' sponges available that are not pure and therefore do not have the correct effect

Benefits of Konjac Sponges

Konjac sponges provide a deeper cleanse than your usual facial cleanser alone, with a gentle exfoliating action that helps remove makeup residue and dead skin cells, absorb dirt and remove impurities. These soft, lightweight sponges are used like you would a facial cleanser, but can do much more than a normal sponge or cloth. Elicious konjac sponges are pH neutral, which means they balance the acidity of your skin. Elicious konjac sponges are full of vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12, C, D and E, as well as proteins, lipids, fatty acids and minerals such as copper, zinc, iron and magnesium. Konjac sponges are slightly abrasive and massage the skin while cleansing, promoting circulation and stimulating skin cell regeneration for a healthy, fresh complexion. They're also completely biodegradable, so they can be disposed of in the compost or even just in your garden.

How to Use a Konjac Sponge

A Konjac sponge can be used with or without your favorite cleanser and is gentle enough for everyday use. Before use, soak the sponge thoroughly in warm water to expand the fibers, squeeze gently until it has softened and absorbed water. They should only be used wet as dry konjacs are too hard and damage the skin. Use the sponge to cleanse the skin and work in circular motions all over the skin. Rinse after use, gently squeeze out excess water and let it dry. Your sponge will last about 2 months before it starts to break naturally. Toss your konjac into the compost and replace it with a new one.

Which Konjac sponges do we recommend?

Elicious Konjac sponge with charcoal

For acne-prone and problematic skin, I recommend the Elicious Konjac Sponge with Bamboo Charcoal. Bamboo charcoal is highly porous and not only absorbs excess oil from the skin, it also works to get rid of acne-causing bacteria. Activated charcoal is known for its deeply absorbing and detoxifying properties and has been used in health and medicine for hundreds of years.
