KUU Konjac Sponge

Highlights & Awards

Used for over 1500 years in Japan, this facial sponge is deep cleansing, biodegradable, chemical free and pH balanced - way gentler than your face cloth.

The Full Story

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



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.

Magic sponge!

This is the best way I have found to lightly exfoliate my problem skin and have absolutely no irritation. My makeup goes on smoother and lasts longer because the skin is better prepared


Love these little sponges, the idea that it's biodegradable makes it so much better.
I would love something a little more abrasive so I could use it to exfoliate

Super soft , super cleansing -KONJAC a gift from Nature

I have been using tha KONJAC sponge ever since I discovered Happy Skincare ( which must be over 5years ago . It is so soft and makes your chosen cleanser to get deep into your pores and then if you rub just a little bit harder it does a remarkable job of exfoliating. Fits so comfortably in your hand . After use I hang my sponge near the window to dry properly . I literally use the sponge until pieces are falling from it and then put it in my precious stags and elks .


I really like using the sponge. It’s soft when wet but exfoliates well. A difference in pressure and which cleanser or scrub you use makes it a diverse tool. I love that it hangs up and dries out fully between use and doesn’t grow bacteria, and that it is compost able.

Love it!!

Great with or without product. Easy to use & clean. Have to buy another one as my daughter took it....affordable so not a problem to do!


My skin is acne prone. Konjac Sponge is my love. I clean face twice a day with it. It's natural and biodegradable.

Works Well

Have never used one before but was suprised how soft and gentle on the skin.


I purchased a Konjac Sponge in "Pure" with my sample order of skincare products. It is amazing. I've always used face washes for my skin, but worry about them being clean (my laundry is insane!!). It is soft, and feels lovely on my skin. I press very lightly in circular motions to get an extra clean out of my cleansers. Every couple of days I use it with a bit firmer pressure with my sugar scrub for a gentle exfoliation. I have very sensitive skin and this has not flared it up at all! You definitely won't regret buying one.

Super Sponge

Now that I’ve used this sponge I won’t use anything else to wash my face , it’s a gentle exfoliant and works really well with the cloud 9 balm. Love it!

Great face cleaner

I use the French green clay sponge to massage off the cloud 9 cleansing balm. They seem to be made for each other. Have tried other methods of removing the balm, but found this sponge to be the best. I have combination, maturing skin.
