  • The 100% natural KUU Konjac sponge gently cleanses and soothes the skin by removing dirt and oil, naturally restoring the pH level of the skin. Cleansing helps to stimulate blood flow and encourage new skin cells, revitalising the complexion without damaging the skin.

    In Japan the Konjac (Konnyoku) sponge has been used for its medicinal properties for over 1500 years.

    Made from 100% natural vegetable fibre, the sponges are very soft and do not contain the chemicals, synthetics and colourings that are in many other sponges currently on the market.

    The beauty of the sponge is its simplicity. It is naturally alkaline to balance the acidity of the skins impurities and oils.

    Benefits include:

    • 100% Natural Fibre Sponge (enhanced with either red clay, green clay, or bamboo charcoal)
    • No Chemicals or Preservatives
    • No Colours or Additives
    • Suitable for all Skin Types
    • Stimulates Blood Flow
    • Encourages New Skin Cell Growth
    • Cleanses and Soothes
    • Enviromentally Sustainable
    • Biodegradable

    After just one use you will feel the difference with the KUU Konjac Sponge, your skin will feel revitalised and your skin care routine will have been transformed.

    The KUU Konjac Sponges are suitable for all skin types, and there are even 4 different "flavours" to choose from to get the most out of your sponge:

    1. Pure - For all skin types (even baby)
    2. Bamboo Charcoal - For acne prone, oily and problematic skin
    3. French Red Clay - For dry, sensitive and/or mature skin
    4. French Green Clay - For oily and combination skin

    Pure ("WHITE") - For all skin types (even baby)

    The Pure sponge is the all-purpose original Konjac sponge. No matter who you are, this sponge will very gently cleanse and remove grime and dead skin cells.

    The Pure Konjac sponge is even gentle enough for us to use it on our youngest family members. It's so soft that a face clean never fails to get a smile out of our 3 month old :)

    Bamboo Charcoal ("BLACK") - For acne prone, oily and problematic skin

    The Bamboo Charcoal sponge contains activated carbon & various minerals that enhance absorpsion of excess oil and dirt.

    Bamboo Charcoal is also a natural anti-oxidant and so will help fight hard-to-reach, acne causing bacteria, revitalising the complexion and tightening pores.

    French Red Clay ("RED") - For dry, sensitive and mature skin

    The Red clay sponge is loaded with Iron Oxide. This sponge deep cleanses and exfoliates the skin from the layers of dead cells and accelerates the regeneration process to leave the skin hydrated and looking radiant.

    It's soothing and wonderful for sensitive skin. We have heard reports that it may also help with the rosacea condition.

    Ideal for mature and/or dry skin that needs rejuvenating. Reduces the appearance of fine lines and broken capillaries.

    French Green Clay ("GREEN") - For oily and combination skin

    Green clay has an incredible power of absorption, is rich in minerals and fine essential oils which exfoliates, cleanses, smoothes and softens the skin, restoring vitality and glow whilst drawing oil, grease from the skin.

    This sponge contains micro-molecules that gently cleanse the pores and effectively removes impurities and toxins and stimulates blood flow, revitalising the complexion and tightening pores.

    KUU Konjac Sponge

    I liked introducing this sponge into my routine. Bought primarily because it’s biodegradable.

    Perfect sponge

    This sponge is so unique. It becomes so soft and squishy once you add water and lightly, but effectively exfoliates the skin.

    Easy to use

    I wasn't sure if I'd enjoy using this sponge, but it's easy to use and my face feels great afterwards. I mostly use it if I'm cleansing but don't have makeup to remove, instead of my cloud 9 balm, but I have removed makeup with it as well. Quite happy with it.

    LOVE

    Love, love, love.
    When ever I'm not in the mood or don't have the time to cleanse my face this is how I do it. Splash face with warm water then give your face a rub down with the konjac sponge. Cleansers face with out using product, fast, soothing and totally worth every cent.
    This sponge is a life saver. Use it on its own or after cleansing. I can't praise it enough!!!

    Pure Sponge

    This is just so pleasant to use, and made a huge improvement from just using a face cloth with my Cloud 9 balm.

    Life changing

    I love this little sponge! I've never used one before and got one as part of a sample pack and I am so happy I did! I really believe this has helped to clear up my skin, reduce pores and has made my skin softer and smoother then when I was using harsh chemicals. I don't even feel the need to exfoliate as much and it really makes your cleanser last longer as the sponge does some cleansing on its own so I don't need to use as much product.

    KUU Konjac Sponge - Bamboo Charcoal

    I've purchased two of these now and honestly don't know how I cleansed without one before or how I can ever go back. It distributes products evenly and easily with minimal waste while gently sloughing away blemishes, leaving my skin soft and renewed. Pretty inexpensive for something so handy.

  • Directions

    While the sponge is best used with the Cloud 9 Deep Cleansing Balm (cleanse and then follow the directions below), you can just add water and use it on its own.

    • Rinse before use and then gently massage until the sponge has absorbed the water.
    • Use the sponge in circular motions, it can be used alone as it is naturally 8.4 pH balanced or with a small amount of cleanser if you wish.
    • Rinse sponge after use (do not wring) and hang to dry.
    • The sponge will harden when dry. Re-hydrate in warm water before use again.
    • When it starts to show wear just throw it in the compost. Your sponge should last around 2 months.
    Caution: Use only as directed and if you experience irritation please discontinue use.
