Title: Bamboo Charcoal Sponge

A konjac sponge for sensitive skin

Gentle, yet effective, this 2-in-1 konjac sponge for sensitive skin provides the perfect texture to remove dirt and grime from your face. It also doubles as a “beauty blender”! Made with 100% biodegradable konjac plant fiber and bamboo charcoal, this sponge is the ultimate tool to detoxify pores, smooth your skin and thoroughly cleanse your face. Its teardrop shape allows for easy application of your fav primer, illuminator or bb cream, like Face Glow! Once you're done, simply rinse and hang your sponge to dry.

“Love the feel of the Charcoal Sponge when cleansing. My skin feels exfoliated and soft afterwards.” - Rebecca K.

Activated Bamboo Charcoal
 

How it helps

CLEANSES your skin with fortifying bamboo

EXFOLIATES with the gentle fibers of the konjac root

REMOVES buildup of dead skin cells and oil with charcoal

How to use:

Soak the konjac sponge in water until it becomes soft. Squeeze to expel excess water. Apply your favourite Graydon cleanser to the sponge and gently massage your face. Rinse your face with warm water. Rinse the sponge with warm water and soap. Hang in a cool, well-ventilated place to air dry. Replace every 2-4 months.

If applying makeup, set the sponge aside while applying your skincare. After applying your moisturizer or primer, use the damp sponge to evenly apply your foundation or Face Glow. Cleanse and rinse the sponge thoroughly after use and hang in a cool, well-ventilated place to air dry.

TIP: Use with one of our cleansers like Aloe Milk or Face Foam or both!

Good to know

- About 3 inches wide and jelly-like when wet, this vegan sponge is the perfect size to fit in your hand (or travel bag!).
- Once dry, it shrinks in size and can easily be left hanging in a well-ventilated area, next to your sink or on a faucet until you use it again.
- The life of a well-used konjac sponge is around 2-4 months.
- Hydrate the sponge with warm water before use.
- This product is vegan and certified by Ecocert.
100% biodegradable.
- Dermatologist and clinically tested.
- Hypoallergenic and non-irritating.
Suitable for sensitive skin.
- Vegan and cruelty-free.
- For sanitary reasons, our Bamboo Charcoal Sponge is final sale.

When using a new product, doing a patch test is always a good practice, particularly if you have sensitive skin.

Great clean

I love how clean my skin feels after washing my face using this sponge. My only complaint is that it seems challenging to fully clean the sponge of the soap. It takes some time to get all the soap rinsed out.

I have sensitive skin and most exfoliators are irritating/drying, but not this fun lil sponge. I love that it is biodegradable as well! Plants for the win.
