How to Have a Clean Face Without Cleanser

Skin-friendly cleansing methods

Konjac sponge facial cleansers are gentle for a reason. A Konjac sponge washes your face with only a thin layer of water. Konjac's high water retention creates this film. This allows safe removal of clogged pores and dead skin cells. Its gentleness makes it ideal for atopic dermatitis and acne-prone skin. Japan has cleaned babies' skin with only a konjac sponge and hot water since ancient times.

What is Konjac?

The konjac plant has been consumed as a vegetable in Japan for centuries. Konjac is a root vegetable with an unusually shaped potato appearance. The underground bulb of the plant contains glucomannan, which is a soluble fiber. It is known that soluble fiber absorbs water to form a gel-like substance. It is consumed in Japan as an ingredient with a texture similar to hard jelly.

Made the traditional way

same production technique as 130 years ago

Since we began making sponges more than 130 years ago, we have continued to make them by hand. We continue to make sponges, in the same manner, we did back then.

Sponges are made in the middle of winter

Konjac be transformed into a sponge by exposure to natural cold. The konjac is a fine sponge since it is gently frozen by nature.

UV rays from the sun whiten the sponge

Because the sponge is exposed to the sun for an extended period of time, its fineness is preserved. In addition, the sponge is naturally bleached by the sun's beams.

An extremely absorbent natural sponge

Naturally occurring sponges have a high capacity for absorbing liquids. The fibers are effective at removing grime even without the use of soap.
