Tōhoku Konjac Sponge

Regular price$15.00

An alkaline bathing sponge from Japan to clear away bumps, back-acne, bum-acne and brighten dark spots all over the body - elbows, necklines, armpit and more.

Please note: We do not use any preservatives in our sponges (this ensures the alkalinity) so please do dry them out in the fridge or in a cool dry place to avoid molding after use.
  • In stock, ready to ship
  • Inventory on the way
  • Suitable for All Skin Types
  • This is a pudding-like, gently exfoliating sponge made with edible grade, pH tested konjac fibers in Japan, used since the Edo Period for babies and adults.
  • Traditionally used to rebalance the skin's pH, it can neutralise acidity on skin during breakouts. The Alkalinity is the most important factor for an authentic Japanese Konjac sponge, differentiating it from your typical mass made factory sponges
  • Japanese Konjac fibres have a natural aqueous water layer that is alkaline, which helps to neutralise the acidity and bacteria, clearing away dead skin and build up from pores - recommended as a natural remedy for keratosis pilaris
  • Lighten up dark spots on the face, elbows, armpits, back, necklines, groin, inner thigh and genital areas by gentle clearing away dead skin daily (please scrub gently in delicate areas)
  • Clinically Tested and Proven pH of 8.4 alkalinity helps to neutralise acidity and bacteria
  • When soaked in water, the sponge swells to create a natural alkaline water layer for a "pudding" like softness, perfect for gentle exfoliation
  • Generates extra lather (save water and $$$)
  • Made with premium, edible-grade Konjac Fibre grown in the Tōhoku Region in Japan from local farms
  • No preservatives or artificial colours, BPA-FREE, free of any harsh chemicals, making it gentle enough for your most private parts
  • Three Colours available: Snowy White, Cherry Blossom and Green Tea infused Konjac Sponges
  • Sustainable, Biodegradable & Environmentally Friendly, Ocean Safe

Snowy White Tōhoku Konjac Sponge: Edible Grade Konjac Fiber

Cherry Blossom Tōhoku Konjac Sponge: Cherry Blossom Extract, Konjac Fiber

Green Tea Tōhoku Konjac Sponge: Green Tea Powder, Konjac Fiber

Made in Japan

Soak in warm water until soft and plump, then apply body or face wash for lather.

After use, squeeze dry and place back into reusable pouch or box, then place in the fridge. Do not leave out while moist as it may cause molding. Dry it completely before taking it on travels.

External Use Only.

What kind of box or pouch can I store this in?
Any plastic food container or pouch is fine, or even without a container in a skincare fridge is suitable. The container prevents cross-contamination with foods while it dries out.

Why would this grow mould if I leave it out?
Mould can grow on natural fibres like Konjac when completely free of preservatives or strong anti-fungal chemicals/pesticides. It’s a natural degradation process, but it will not happen when it’s completely dry - so do put it back in the fridge after use.

Can I use this on my face?
Yes. However, avoid scrubbing with too much pressure, as the sponge fibers are resilient enough to clear away dead skin cells and debris.

Is the more Alkaline the sponge, the better?
Too Alkaline or Acidic is actually not so good for skin, as you want to avoid PH disruptions - skin is naturally more acidic, and 8.4 offers just enough alkalinity to balance.
