So what exactly is Konjac? Where does it come from and why do we use it for the Dew Puff Konjac Sponge? We'll help answer some of your questions below, but first, we want to thank you for your time. By reading our posts, you are helping advocate chemical free cleansing, something we feel strongly about. Now on to the facts about Konjac Sponge.
- Japanese started usinig Konjac as a medicinal food in the sixth century.
While food is more readily available now days, we find it awesome that Konjac root has so many other uses besides cleaning your face. Break down most off the shelf sponges and you're left with a bunch of plastic and nasty chemicals. Our guess is you wouldn't want those inside your body, so don't use them on the outside either.
- The Dew Puff Sponge is the source for beauty... beautiful flowers and beautiful skin.
The Dew Puff Konjac Sponge is made from 100% konjac... or more specifically the root of a konjac plant. We pride ourselves in knowing that our product came from something beautiful and natural, and not from a chemist. Even our enfused Konjac Sponges are made from natural fiber sources. For instance, the Asian Clay Sponge is infused with mineral-rich clay and the Bamboo Charcoal Sponge is infused with... you guessed it, highly-effective bamboo charcoal.
- Did you know, people take Konjac as a vitamin source?
Not only is Konjac Sponge a healthy way to keep your face clean of impurities, it can be used to keep your body healthy. While we're more into the cleansing industry, its safe to say, our product is pure. Konjac contains iron, phosphorus, copper, zinc, vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin D, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, vitamin C and folic acid... just to name a few. We think its safe to say that the Dew Puff Konjac sponge isn't chemically challenged.
- Have a Penut Butter & Konjac Sandwich?
While we don't recommend using a Dew Puff Konjac Sponge to complete your penut butter sandwich, the Konjac plant can be used to create Japanese Konnyaku Jelly. Again, what better way to insure a healthy cleansing habit that to use a sponge made from 100% natural products.
- No, you cannot drink Konjac.
Sometimes confused with Cognac, our Konjac Sponges are a means for quenching your thirst, but instead, they are used to hydrate your skin. You're more than welcome to clean your face with your Konjac Sponge while sipping a glass of this fine brandy, please don't mix up the two. It probably wouldn't taste the best any way.
