A vegan konjac sponge from Saponera is a perfect addition to my zero waste bathroom skincare routine.
Saponera is a local Cape Town-based brand that is passionate about creating natural plant-based products that are free from harmful chemicals and animal products and is greywater safe. I’m currently using their body wash, hand wash and sanitizer (see post here) which I love.
the ingredients and the packaging
A konjac sponge is a plant-based exfoliating sponge made from the Konjac (Amorphophallus Konjac) Root Fibre. Most sponges are made from plastic and when used, release micro-plastics that end up contaminating our water. The great thing about using a plant-based konjac sponge is that it is 100% natural, 100% plastic-free and 100% biodegradable. Saponera gifted me this sponge as part of a gift set, inside a hemp bag together with a hand wash.
how to use:
When you first get your sponge you will notice it is very hard. But once you soak it in water and squish out the water it turns into a softer sponge that you can use to wash your face and body. It’s important to rinse out the sponge when you are done and to hang it so it can air dry. Saponera have added a string through the sponge, to help you do that.
where to buy?
You can buy a konjac sponge directly from the Saponera online shop.
