A gentle face sponge for even those with sensitive and acne prone skin. Our Charcoal Facial Sponge is created in Japan using the roots of the Konnyakku plant. The vegetable fibers are purified and spun into a puff that is incredibly water-retentive. When used, there is a water barrier between sponge and skin which means it cleanses without scratching or irritating. Your face will love it!
Made from Konyakku plant infused with charcoal to help draw out impurities
