Konjac is a widespread Asian plant that has long been eaten as a high-fiber, low-calorie food, and more recently dried for use as a cleansing sponge. Synergie’s Konjac Sponge is infused with activated charcoal derived from sustainable bamboo plantations to gently and exfoliate and clean the skin without irritation.
Our Japanese Konjac Sponge is free from any potentially harmful additives, artificial colors or preservatives, is suitable for all skin types, and can be used with or without a separate cleanser.
Bonus Tip! Once discarded, the sponge is safe to compost – or plant it in your garden to help retain moisture.
Konjac – provides gentle exfoliation without irritation
Activated charcoal – antibacterial and anti-fungal properties; absorbs toxins and excess oils.
Soak the dry Konjac Sponge in water so it becomes silky soft when soaked in water. It can be used with or without your cleanser. Lather up the sponge with its perfect match, Ultracleanse, for added benefits.
Synergie’s Konjac Sponge is designed to last 2-3 months, depending on use, care, and the environment. Because it is 100% plant based, the sponge will naturally deteriorate over time (and more quickly in a damp and humid environment). Always rinse the sponge well after each use, and hang to dry in a well-ventilated area. Avoid wringing or twisting the sponge as this may damage the delicate fibres.
Never use a dry sponge on the skin. The sponge will shrink and harden when it is dry- this is perfectly normal. Simply allow the sponge to absorb water and rehydrate again before use.
