Why Charcoal Facial Sponges?


When used, there is a water barrier between sponge and skin which means it cleanses without scratching or irritating. The sponge is ideal for daily use, especially for those with sensitive and acne-prone skin.

For the first use, soak the sponge in warm water for 10-15 minutes until it puffs up and rehydrates. It will expand about 50% and be soft and squishy like sponge cake.


This facial sponge is created using the roots of the konyakku plant, a food staple for more than 1,500 years in Asian cultures. The vegetable fibers are purified and spun into a puff that is incredibly water-retentive.

Charcoal helps to draw out daily impurities. When you exfoliate with the facial sponge, the infused charcoal will help gently bring up the build up from your pores.


After 3 months: Sanitize the sponge or replace. If you see mold or bacteria growth, do not use the sponge. Some users have boiled it in water to sterilize it, or saturated it in water and microwaved for 20 seconds to sterilize. If you continue to squeeze and hang it to fully dry between uses, it could last for up to 6 months. 
If it smells funny, becomes discolored, or looks off, throw it away and do not continue using. It is a natural product and can grow mold or bacteria if not properly handled.

Storage: After each use, rinse out the sponge and gently press between palms to remove excess water. Hang up to dry between uses, with the included string hanger. Never wring out the sponge as this might damage or alter its shape. Replace after 3 to 6 months.
