A Treasure From the Sea

Sea sponges are a special beauty tool from the depths of the ocean. Each sponge is uniquely beautiful, enhancing your bathing ritual as you gently cleanse and exfoliate your skin. Sea sponges are a renewable resource when they are harvested responsibly, and often grow back more prolifically after being cut.  

Sea sponges are non-toxic, hypoallergenic, and biodegradable. Their delicate wooly texture gently cleanses and removes dead skin cells. Removing impurities leaves the skin fresh, healthy, and glowing. Gentle exfoliation helps to stimulate circulation and revitalize skin.

The soft natural texture and high porosity of the sponges allow them to be highly absorbent. They form a rich lather, require less soap, and provide a luxurious bathing experience.

Caring for your sponge on a regular basis can help to maintain structural integrity and keep it bacteria-free. Simply soak your sponge every few weeks in a solution of 1 cup water to 1 T. baking soda to help disinfect your sponge. Allow to dry between uses in a well-ventilated area. Straggly edges can be trimmed with scissors.
