Konjac sponge - anyone familiar with what this is? Well, if you aren't then let me tell you why you should probably incorporate this into your daily skin routine! I've been using it every day and really do love how it makes my skin feel!
Popular in Asia, the konjac sponge is made from the dried ground root of the konjac (or elephant yam) plant that is native to Asia. It is then mixed with calcium hydroxide, heated, frozen, and dried, in order to create the sponges. The calcium gives that sponge natural alkaline properties that can help to balance out your skin's pH. The konjac root is full of vitamins and antioxidants, and has been known to help kill acne-causing bacteria!
The result - a konjac sponge is incredible for gently exfoliating, cleansing (even without soap!), naturally moisturizing, and is ideal for all skin types (including rosacea, aczema, and psoriasis). It's even safe for the delicate skin of infants and children (no need for additional soaps and cleansers!). You can add a little of your favorite cleanser, or use it just with water! This is one of our favorite things to buy from the VIO store, so we've included the facial sponge in our giveaway package this month (which you should probalby go enter ) And do I even need to mention that when you order your konjac sponge from the VIO Store, you get up to 25% back in travel points!
