this konjac sponge by No Tox Life was created in Japan using the roots of the konyakku plant. The vegetable fibers are purified and spun into a puff infused with charcoal. The puff is water-retentive and forms a water barrier between sponge and skin which means it cleanses without scratching or irritating. the infused charcoal will help gently bring up the build up of dirt and toxins from your pores. Ideal for daily use, especially for those with sensitive and acne-prone skin.

- Before 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.
- Daily use: Soak briefly in warm water to rehydrate. To exfoliate, wet the sponge and make a small lather with your favorite facial bar. You can also use the sponge alone without any cleanser. Rub in circular motions to remove dirt from the pores without scratching the skin. Your face will love it! Rinse out completely, then press between palms to remove excess water from sponge and hang to dry.
- 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.
- After 3 months: Sanitize the sponge or replace every couple months. Some users have boiled it in water to sterilize it, or saturated it in water and microwaved for 20 seconds to sterilize. 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.
