This remarkably soft and fine natural sponge is perfect for cleansing and exfoliating the face and applying cosmetics. The unique structure and natural antibacterial and antifungal properties prevent the growth of bacteria, mould, mildew and odours in the sponge. Sustainable Sponges are surprisingly durable and with a little care, your facial sponge will last many months.
Sustainable Sponges natural sea sponges are grown on organic farms in the crystal-clear lagoons of Pohnpei, Micronesia. Each sponge is cultivated in ecologically-sound conditions under the direction of MERIP (Marine & Environmental Research Institute of Pohnpei), and harvested by hand. This farming process provides a sustainable income for the local community.
To cleanse and/or remove makeup: For best use dampen the sponge in warm water, add a little facial cleanser if desired and rub gently in circular motions.
To apply liquid or cream foundation: Simply wet the sponge and squeeze out excess water before coating surface lightly with foundation and applying. The sponge can be cut with scissors to produce a flat or angled surface for makeup application.
Rinse in clean water after use, squeeze and leave to air dry. For sponges used for makeup application, adding a little bit of gentle facial cleanser will clean cosmetics out easily.
For extra cleaning, soak sponge in 2 cups of water with 2 tablespoons of baking soda added, for 1 hour.
Store your sponge where it can air dry between uses.
