Details

Rid those synthetic neon sponges from your life and honour your skin with a deeply cleansing, large-sized natural sea sponge.

These yellow grass natural sponges will absorb many times their weight in water to provide a soft, textured cleaning experience with consistent rinsing and massaging of the skin. Perfect for all over body care.

They are sustainably farmed by New England Natural Sponges.

To extend the life of your sponge, gently wash it in warm soapy water after each use. Rinse it thoroughly and squeeze out as much excess water as you can. Then allow it to air dry.

Do not use on irritated or broken skin. If irritation occurs, discontinue use till problem clears up and consult a physician if problem persists.

Wondering what "sustainably farmed" means?

Sponges are harvested by divers that hand-cut the sponge, or in shallow waters where diving is restricted, by hooking the sponge. Sponges actually possess the ability to regenerate much like a starfish. So when sea sponges are harvested, the divers leave a bit of sponge at the base thus ensuring it will grow back. Since the sponge divers' business thrives on the regeneration of sponges and them growing as fast as possible, they are very careful in their practices to ensure they are protecting the future of the sponge bed. Additionally, only a very small proportion of the sponge population is actually harvested for commercial purposes and none of those type of sponges grow in coral reef areas.

There is much more information at the following link from the University of Florida that should help answer any other questions about this harvesting process: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/sg095
