The Konjac sponge is made from the roots of the konjac plant, which is a perennial plant native to Asia. It's been used as a beauty treatment by the Japanese for over a century. Ideal for all skin types, even the most delicate, the Konjac sponge deeply and gently cleanses the skin, removing makeup and impurities, and is much more effective than a regular face cloth. Konjac sponges were originally designed for babies – which speaks volumes about how gentle they are! They exfoliate the skin very gently and bring out its radiance.
Konjac root fibers give this sponge its natural micro-exfoliating properties. It gently scrubs the upper layers of the skin, leaving it deeply cleansed, invigorates and free of impurities.
One of the most amazing things about the Konjac sponge is its versatility. It can be used by all skin types, with or without a cleansing product. Whether you have acne-prone, combination, sensitive or dry, easily irritated atopic skin, this sponge will fit perfectly into your skincare routine!
There are two types of Konjac sponge:
- Natural Konjac sponges, which have a white or cream color, and are made from 100% pure Konjac root fiber. These can be used on all skin types.
- Konjac sponges made with an additional, natural ingredient (charcoal, white, green or red clay, aloe vera, etc.). These sponges provide more targeted benefits, to meet the needs of specific skin types.

The white Konjac sponge is ideal for normal skin, but can of course be used by all skin types. Made simply from Konjac root, it gently cleanses and exfoliates. All you have to do is moisten the sponge with warm water before using it. We chose this sponge for Absolution, so that all skin types can enjoy it!
If your skin tends to feel rough and tight, look for a Konjac sponge with red clay, which has revitalizing and soothing properties. Naturally colored by the clay, this Konjac sponge gently brings out your skin's radiance.
Striking the perfect balance between white clay and red clay, pink clay may be added to a Konjac sponge for its softening and soothing properties. These sponges are particularly suitable for sensitive and delicate skin.
If your skin lacks moisture and feels uncomfortable, try using a Konjac sponge with Aloe Vera, which has softening, hydrating and regenerating benefits.
Those with combination or oily skin should look for a Konjac sponge with green clay, which helps to regulate sebum production, and has mattifying and astringent properties. This will help to tighten pores on the face and limit excess sebum.
A Konjac sponge with bamboo charcoal is ideal for anyone with acne-prone or blemish-prone skin. Bamboo charcoal purifies the skin by absorbing impurities.
Green tea is an excellent active ingredient to neutralize free radicals and protect against environmental aggressors. It can be added to a Konjac sponge to care for mature skin and help prevent the effects of skin aging.
You can use the Konjac sponge morning and evening on the face and body to remove makeup, cleanse, and gently exfoliate the skin.
When using the sponge for the first time, make sure you rehydrate it well by placing it in a bowl of warm water for a few minutes.
Before each use, always soak the sponge with warm water. Once it's filled with water, gently squeeze out any excess, then massage the sponge over your face or body with circular motions. The Konjac sponge can be used with clean water alone, or with a gentle cleanser or makeup remover.
To make your sponge last as long as possible, always rinse it with warm water after use, then squeeze it gently to remove any excess. Don't twist or wring it, or you'll damage the fibers. Leave the sponge to air dry; it should be dry within a few hours.
Depending on how often you use your Konjac sponge, it should last for at least one or two months before it gradually starts to crumble. The sponge is 100% natural, so this is perfectly normal! Then it's time to think about getting a new one...
Konjac is used to deeply cleanse the skin, remove impurities, unclog pores, and gently exfoliate.
Its natural fibers boast many benefits, which explains why the Konjac sponge has become the new multi-purpose must-have in our bathrooms!
A Konjac sponge:
- stimulates microcirculation with its natural plant fibers,
- tones the skin,
- encourages cell renewal through its gentle exfoliating action,
- tightens pores,
- helps to fight skin aging,
- smoothes the skin, for a more radiant complexion.
The Konjac sponge has naturally antibacterial properties, which makes it ideal for combination and oily skin, as it removes impurities and helps to regulate sebum production. If the sponge is made with bamboo charcoal or green clay, its effects are enhanced.
A Konjac sponge will also care for sensitive skin, as the konjac plant is naturally alkaline, so its fibers won't upset the skin's pH balance. For extra-gentle cleansing, just add water, nothing else!
With its cleansing, purifying and antibacterial properties, the Konjac sponge offers a natural alternative to conventional cleansing products. Made from 100% natural plant fibers, it's both biodegradable and vegan. Little processing is involved in its manufacture, which means the composition of the sponge is very similar to that of the plant from which it is made. There are no parabens, colorants, preservatives, additives or pollutants.
After one or two months of use, when your sponge starts to crumble, do the green thing and add it to your compost!
