A natural, handcrafted sponge made of 100% clean konjac – a porous root vegetable Amorphophallus Konjac native to Asia, known since the 6th century and used in medicine, food and skincare for almost 1500 years in Korea, Japan and China.

The fiber is so delicate, it was first used to wash babies’ skin. Free from chemicals, colouring, additives and irritants – the konjac sponge is used mostly due to its gently exfoliating, purifying, cleansing properties. It removes impurities and dead skin cells, leaving the complexion smooth, glowing and radiant. Used solo or with Cleansing Gel, it is also perfect for removing make up.

Choose from our selection:

  • White – 100% pure konjac, gently removing impurities for all skin types
  • Pink – enriched with french pink clay. Very gentle, perfect for tired, sensitive, devitalised skin, especially exposed to difficult weather conditions or central heating.
  • Black – complemented with bamboo charcoal, best for oily skin that may be prone to acne or blackheads. It cleanses pores and absorbs excess sebum.

Powerful plant

Konjac is rich in minerals. It contains potassium, protein, carbohydrate, lipids, sodium, magnesium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, copper, zinc, vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin D, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, vitamin C, pantothenate, niacin, fatty acids, folic acid and dietary fibre with a total of 16 amino acids.

Removes the impurities and excess sebum

The konjac sponge gently exfoliates the skin, removing dirt, oil, dead skin cells and even make up. It works well for all skin types. According to the research from 2013 by the American Journal of Dermatology and Venereology, it is even “effective as a treatment of mild to moderate acne” when used on the skin.

Gentle and safe even for sensitive skin

Invented for the first time by the Japanese farmers to wash their babies’ skin, konjac proved to be deeply cleansing without being harmful to the most delicate skin. It is also much softer than a loofah, gentler than a washcloth and can be used on a daily basis.

100% biodegradable, compostable, sustainable

Being made of plant’s root, konjac sponges are vegan, cruelty-free and 100% biodegradable. They can be composted together with your vegetables, fruits and plant remains.

The Konjac sponge is hard when dry and soft, when wet. It is naturally quite alkaline and therefore gains gentle soap-like cleansing ability.

You can use it instead of brushes, scrubs, or other harsh tools. Solo or with your favourite Cleansing Gel. 

Before you start, soak the sponge in water for a few minutes. When it gets soft and smooth, a little bit gel like, squeeze it to release excess water and – if you like it that way – add Cleansing Gel.

Gently massage your face in an upward circular motion to remove all impurities. Start in the center.

Once cleansed, rinse out the sponge with water and hang it to air-dry. The sponge will harden back as it dries.

All of the sponges are made of pure konjac. Depending on the expected functionality, they can be enriched with additional ingredients. The ones we use at LAST are:

  • White – 95% pure konjac powder, 5% water
  • Pink – 90% pure konjac, 5% pink clay, 5% water
  • Black – 90% pure konjac, 5% bamboo charcoal powder, 5% water
