Why Konjac Sponges Are A Must Have

Everyone here at Lucy Rose loves the fabulous Konjac Sponge Collection, so we were thrilled to have a Q&A with Michele Riley - Managing Director of the Konjac Sponge Company.Michele Riley - MD of the Konjac Sponge Company

LR: What are the origins of Konjac Sponge products and what led to the brand being created?

MR: Our background initially was organic and natural baby products. It was through sourcing something pure enough for baby skin, gentle enough and soft enough.  We developed the facial sponges when we discovered the Asian concept. However, we decided that there was more that could be done with the basic Japanese concept, and we set to work on westernising and adding ingredients such as the clays and bamboo charcoal.

LR: What makes Konjac Sponges different to other sponges?

MR: Generally a sponge is synthetic, or made from a sea product. Our Konjac Sponges are unique, as we "bake and make" in a patented secret formula, that though others have (since our success) tried to imitate, they have never managed to do so, as we are so unique in our ingredient sourcing and patented method. Our vegetable fibre is soft, naturally exfoliating and so very natural, no colours, and no additives at all. Whilst being  gentle around the eyes, its one of the few products you can actually safely wipe around the eyes and into the eye socket to exfoliate and massage away puffiness, left over make up traces and help ease away dark circles. The sponge actually massages the skin to give it a healthy glow, draining excess fluid and yet not damage the newly formed skin underneath. Skin is left feeling so soft and conditioned after use. Skin genuinely looks more radiant too. Most sponges would not help refine skin or reduce large pores, they would just cleanse, yet our sponges really do make a difference to the skins condition.

LR: Why are Konjac Sponge’s so effective?

MR: The unique cellular structure of the sponge, the softness, the fact that they are naturally pH balancing, and  of course the simple purity. We are also so proud to be registered Vegan and Cruelty Free too.

LR: When someone buys a Konjac Sponge product what are they guaranteed to get?

MR: The simplest, quickest natural cleaning tool! They are also guaranteed an amazing experience, like nothing they ever tried before!

LR: If you could sum up Konjac Sponge products in 5 words what would they be?

MR: Magical, Remarkable, Natural- Cleansing, Super-fast, Effective Beauty! (Okay I cheated a bit, but 5 words just is not enough, I could rave about them all day long!)

LR: Which is your favourite Konjac Sponge and why?
MR: All of them. That's like asking me to choose my favourite child!
