Why it’s great

From helping to cleanse your pores and purify your skin to exfoliating the skin, the Konjac purifying sponge is the ideal sponge for revitalising and rejuvenating your skin. Flawless skin is achieved by the increased blood-flow and stimulated cell-turnover that this sponge enables. Hand-blended, this sponge fuses volcanic scoria from the Korean island of Jeju with Konjac Fibre to smoothen, brighten and cleanse your skin from unwanted congestion. 

Popular in Asia and originally created as a way to clean baby skin, this type of sponge offers a gentle means to exfoliate dead or dry skin daily.

A uniquely vegetable based product which is entirely biodegradable and 100% plant-based, even the packaging that it comes in has a biodegradable cellulose acetate ‘window’ because of the care Innisfree take to ensure they do their bit for the environment.

    Structured in a unique netted shape, the sponge intertwines earthly elements and pure volcanic scoria Konjac to create a product that delicately exfoliates and cares for the skin. By using natural ingredients that absorb unwanted sebum and dirt, this sponge is an entirely eco-friendly way of purifying your skin and unclogging your pores. 

    Infused with volcanic scoria from the Korean island of Jeju, the mineral-rich, naturally antibacterial rock is created from magma ejected from active volcanoes and, because of its porous properties, has long been a fixture of beauty regimes where it’s loved for its shine-minimising and pore-purifying capacity.

    How to use

    Make sure to rinse the Konjac Sponge with warm water before use. 

    Remove excess water by squeezing the sponge and then gently cleanse the skin (cleanser may be added to the sponge for optimal results).

    Rinse once more after use and leave to dry.

    Handle the sponge gently and never wring it out so as to avoid damaging the delicate fibres.

    The Konjac Sponge is a vegetable-based product and should last two to three months. Once it starts to look tired or breaks down, compost it and replace.
