This is the KUU Konjac Sponge with added French Green Clay. In Japan the Konjac (Konnyoku) sponge has been used on their delicate skins for over a century, and now it’s finally hit Australia!! Learn more by reading our information page What is Konjac?

The beauty of the sponge is its simplicity. It is naturally alkaline to balance the acidity of the skins impurities and oils. The French Green clay has an incredible power of absorption, is rich in minerals and fine essential oils which exfoliates, cleanses, smoothes and softens the skin, restoring vitality and glow whilst drawing oil, grease from the skin. Contains micro-molecules that gently cleanse the pores and effectively removes impurities and toxins and stimulates blood flow. Revitalising the complexion and tightening pores. The KUU Konjac sponge can be used on its own or with your favourite cleanser. But remember just a tiny amount goes a long way as the sponge delivers more lather than usual. Better for your skin, better for the environment and your pocket! Before use, rinse and hydrate your Konjac Sponge in warm water. Squeeze out any excess water, and gently cleanse skin.

Is it suitable for anyone?

This is the beauty of the sponge, it's excellent for all skin types and especially for infants. 


Is it suitable for a newborn?

Yes, absolutely. The sponge was first developed for babies. No irritants, and no need for any other cleansing solution, shampoo or body wash for baby unless you really want! In fact even if you do decide you want to use a bath wash, you should use a smaller amount than usual as the sponge will give you more lava than expected.


How often should I use my sponge?

Every day. Make the sponge your part of your daily regime. Simply use the sponge for your morning and evening wash, 
or whenever you would wash or cleanse your face.


How long will the sponge last?

The average is about 3 months, but that depends on use and care. Hang to dry using the string attached to each sponge, rinse everytime its used and don't wring it, and then hang to dry outside of the shower cubicle, in a well ventilated area if possible. A damp environment will shorten its lifespan which allows this natural product to start to decompose!


Can I steralise the sponge?

Yes, feel free to boil the sponge for about 3-4 minutes in a pan of water. Or place in a microwave in a bowl of warm water for about 2 minutes. Ideal for beauty therapists who want to clean and steralise the sponge for their clients.


How do you use it for children's bathtime?

The KUU Konjac Baby Sponge is the sponge to choose for bathtime with the kids. No need to pour cups or jugs of water over their heads, you can gently squeeze the sponge over their hair to wet and rinse. And use the sponge to gently clean the rest of them.


Is a Konjac sponge suitable for the more mature skin?  

Absolutely! The KUU Konjac Sponge with added Red French Clay would be the ideal choice for the mature skin. The sponge will not dry out or damage the skin and will leave it feeling revitalised.


Is it any good for eczema?

Yes, the sponge is perfect for sensitive and problem skin conditions such as eczema. The KUU Sponges are free from chemicals, colourings or any other additives and therefore no irritants. We would recommend the KUU Pure Sponge for skin conditions such as eczema.
