Full Description

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 Tips

Directions

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.

My favourite face cleansing product

This sponge is such a gentle alternative to the traditional face cloth - and it really works ! I have always have problem skin, but thanks to this sponge I do not even need to use any other kind of face cleanser.

So much better than your hands or a washcloth!

I had never heard of using a sponge in place of your hands or a washcloth until stumbling across this little guy, but I'm so happy I caved and bought it! I will honestly never go back to using a washcloth or my hands to cleanse my skin. This sponge does all the work for me and feels amazing to use on your skin. I've been using it to gently massage and wash away the '3 Cheers Cleansing Oil' and it's been lovely. My skin loves it and feels so clean and glowy after every use. Will definitely keep this as a staple in my skincare routine!

Unique Konjac Red Clay sponge

I would not clean my skin morning or night without using this sponge. It has restored some youthful translucency back to my skin. I am in love with 9 Cloud Balm and how gentle and thorough it is in cleaning my face. I clean my sponge by heating in water in the microwave as suggested and feel it helps in keeping my skin in good shape to make sure all is clean.🧐

Evens out my post-cleansing redness. Would 10/10 recommend.

I started using the black one with the Cloud 9 cleansing balm and that was a great soft combination. I then moved to the red one with the Charcoal Cleansing Gel and I love that combo the best - the gel is better for my young/blackhead prone skin and the red sponge is slighter firmer than the black, which makes it feel like I'm getting more of the dirt out of my pours. I only switched because my black sponge broke after a couple years of use (got a small tear - still usable but spread with use). I love how the red clay one evens out my skin tone after taking away the cleanser and doesn't leave red spots and marks like my skin used to.
It's still soft and gentle on the skin - a MUCH better way to remove dirt and cleanser from the face than a wet washer.

Super sponge!

I love the way this sponge is so gentle on the skin yet very effective. I use it in the shower to remove my cleanser or just with water in the mornings.
So good that my husband and daughters use them too!

Life saver

This sponge is the secret to my skincare routine. So soft and absolutely perfect for using with your cleanser. Proper care is necessary for this sponge to last it's optimal lifespan, but very easy and beneficial to our skin. Be sure to get one or two in your next purchase.
