What is a konjac sponge, you ask? It’s a fun little skincare product hailing from Asia that cleanses the skin and unclogs pores. In short, a konjac sponge is a more effective K-beauty alternative to a washcloth. And since konjac sponges also work as gentle exfoliators, they are a must for any sensitive skin or acne-prone individual.

The Konjac Sponge comes from Japan, primarily, and is found to be rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12, C, D, & E, proteins, lipids, fatty acids and natural minerals such as copper, zinc, iron and magnesium. It also boasts of a neutral PH, which means it will help balance your skin. It is a naturally alkaline plant and won’t damage the epidermis of your skin.

Used For Over 1,500 Years

Konjac Sponges are made from the dried and ground root of the konjac, or elephant yam, that’s native to Asia. Asian cultures have used konjac root for over 1,500 years, and konjac sponges have been a popular item there for about 100 years. The Konjac Sponge has been used in Japan first as a bath sponge for newborn babies because of its soft texture. Recently, the Konjac Sponge is sold as an cleansing item intended for luxury Japanese cosmetic and the Konjac Sponge’s popularity has been on the rise as facial cleansing and bath sponge in China, South East Asia and Europe.

How to Use?

Soak the sponge in warm water for 15 minutes before the first use. Once you’ve used it, it will only need soaking for a minute or two before it softens and expands to about one and a half times its size.

Gently squeeze the excess water out. Don’t be rough with it. Apply a small amount of cleanser (if desired). Rub the konjac sponge on the face in upward, circular motions.

Rinse the konjac sponge well with cool water and gently squeeze the excess water out by pressing the sponge between your palms. Don’t twist, wring, or pull on it.

Hang it to dry, or put it on a rack so there’s airflow. Alternately, you can keep the sponge in a sealed container in your fridge. Make sure to store it away from light and humidity.

Some Benefits of the Konjac Sponge

The Konjac Beauty Sponge can cleanse your skin of dirt, blackheads, whiteheads, oil, and other blemishes.

The drugstore cleaners and toners just don’t make the cut anymore. Once dirt sets on your face for more than 24 hours, you could expect that you’ll have pimples the next morning. One of the konjac sponge skin benefits is to make your skin extremely clean without drying it out making it dull-looking. To make your skin even softer after use, use moisturizer.

Konjac Sponge helps with makeup application and makes your makeup stay on longer.

The sponge will make all dry skin flakes vanish and because your skin is moisturized by the konjac sponge, your face becomes more responsive to other skin care products. It also makes your face the perfect canvas for cosmetics. Your skin also becomes bouncy, and will be able to release its natural oil. It’s also great during makeup removal because the konjac sponge is a good cleanser, it can also wipe off stubborn traces of makeup on your face.

They Give You a Radiant Glow

The konjac sponge works to gently exfoliate your skin, sloughing away dead skin cells, giving skin a smooth, glowy complexion. You can finally have that clear and glowing complexion that looks natural. The longer you use the sponge, the better your skin will get.

Gentle cleansing is part of konjac sponge skin benefits.

This product is okay for those with sensitive skin and will not damage your skin cells. They can even be used to shower babies! The sponges are so soft and palm-sized and make a perfect sponge for baby bath time.


Taking Care of a Konjac Sponge

If you have long nails, please do not squeeze/poke the sponge too hard as it may tear the sponge and cause it to fall apart.

Do not expose the sponge to direct sunlight and do not leave the sponge in humid place i.e. poorly ventilated bathroom or faucet area. Alternatively, keep the sponge in a container and store it in a refrigerator.

Replace sponge every 3-4 weeks for the best cleansing experience.

    ACTUALLY WORKS. I have such sensitive, acne prone skin and it’s hard to find products that will improve my problems. My main focus was to calm down my acne and it did that AND got rid of blackheads that I had on my nose that no other products could budge.

    I have late 40’s ance prone skin. This sponge has been amazing. Makes your face feel squeaky clean and smooth. It seems to keep my acne to a minimum even around my cycle. Pimples are smaller, less frequent and don’t last as long. Helps those large pores too. I use it after washing my face with no product on it which seems to make it last longer. Loving it now…hoping for better results over time

    Nice texture, very easy to use. Been using morning and night for about 10 days and my skin (which is both dry and acne-prone) is starting to feel smoother and clearer already. Will be purchasing again!

    I don’t use soap on my face and was looking for something to provide a little natural exfoliation outside of my normal routine of micro fiber cloth and hot water. This sponge is perfect! I’ve been thrilled with how soft it leaves me skin, without drying it out. This is exactly what I was looking for and I highly recommend it!

    I love it! It’s really soft and gentle on my skin, but still gives it a mild exfoliation. I have sensitive and acne prone skin and this cleans without irritating or drying out my skin. Plus it feels sooo nice on my face and leaves it glowing. Very easy to use and store. Plus, I don’t have to use a lot of my cleanser, less than a pea size. I can’t imagine using anything else now! And the customer service from KonjacBeauty is excellent!! I will definitely order again!

    This is a great product! I have combination, acne-prone skin and this has been a wonderful addition to my skincare routine! I use it twice a day, once in the evening when I shower, where I use it in conjunction with my cleanser, and once in the morning where I just use it by itself. It has really made a difference in helping clear up my skin and keep it clear. I love that it exfoliates without being harsh, and I love that the sponge itself lasts for so long! I’ve had mine for about three weeks now, and I will probably replace in a month or so. You can sanitize the sponge by just submerging it in a pot of boiling water for a minute or two, twice a month. Just make sure not to hang it in the shower so it dries completely between uses. I highly recommend giving this a try, it has really helped me!

    This has helped my skin so much! I needed some kind of exfoliant that wasn’t a grainy paste because I think that was doing more damage and leaving behind an oily residue. Use this in the shower with your face wash! Press flat between your hands, don’t ring it out, and this will last you forever! Love this product so much!!
