What Is Dr. Sponge?
Dr. Sponge is an all-natural and biodegradable face and body cleansing sponge made from revolutionary vegetable fiber of the Konjac plant. Originally designed and formulated for babies and sensitive skin, Dr. Sponge is extremely gentle and is suitable for all skin types. Under normal daily usage, each of our sponges lasts for about 3 months, and under good care, the sponges can last up to 5-6 months.
What Is Konjac?
Konjac (aka Amorphophallus Konjac) is an exotic perennial plant native to Eastern Asia. For centuries, it has been used in a variety of Asian cuisines and medicines for its natural richness in protein, vitamin (A, E, D, B1, B2, B6, B12, C), potassium, copper, magnesium, iron, zinc, fatty acids and folic acid. Konjac plants usually grow at an altitude of about 1500 meters and require certain weather conditions in order for the plants to last.
What Are The Benefits of Dr. Sponge?
Exfoliate: Exfoliation removes dead skin cells on the skin surface and has been adopted by many skincare professionals. Whether it is microdermabrasion with your favorite skincare product or a chemical peel done at your local spa, finding a suitable exfoliation method is not easy for sensitive skin. However, anyone, even babies, can use Dr. Sponge without the fear of irritation because our amazing sponges are extremely gentle. They are all-natural and contain absolutely no harmful chemicals. The unique "jello-like" texture allows the sponges to glide on the skin and mildly exfoliate simultaneously.
Cleanse: An effective skincare routine begins with a good cleansing product. Dr. Sponge's natural texture is extremely powerful at clearing pores, removing makeup, dirt, oil and even blackhead. We've actually developed a unique way of cleansing the skin with Dr. Sponge. Using no other products, gently massage the skin in circular motion with Dr. Sponge for about 30 seconds. You will notice that the skin feels clean and fresh; then squeeze out excess water from the sponge and use it to dry the skin. Yes, there is no towel needed. The sponge will soak up excess water on the skin, leaving you a clean, refreshed and smooth finish.
Tone: Toner is used as preparation for the skincare products that will be applied after the initial cleansing. This is important because thorough cleansing removes more than just makeup and dirt; it also strips your skin of its natural oil and protective layer. Dr. Sponge helps to tone and maintain a healthy skin balance due to the fact that Konjac, the main ingredient in our sponges, is naturally alkaline so it can balance the skin acidity and neutralize the skin pH balance.
Moisturize: We call our Dr. Sponge the all-in-one beauty solution because it exfoliates, cleanses, tones and moisturizes the skin all by itself. Its natural ingredients have strong ability at moisture retention and are excellent at preserve moisture for long-lasting comfort and skin benefits.
