Luna Charcoal Facial Sponge

  • The Luna Charcoal Facial Sponge is created in Japan using the roots of the konyakku plant, a food staple for more than 1,500 years in Asian cultures.
  • 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.
  • The sponge is ideal for daily use, especially for those with sensitive and acne-prone skin.
  • How to use: For the first use, soak the sponge in warm water for 10-15 minutes until it puffs up and rehydrates.
  • It will expand about 50% and be soft and squishy like sponge cake.
  • For Daily Use: Soak briefly in warm water to rehydrate.
  • To exfoliate, wet the sponge and make a small lather with your favorite Cleanser.
  • Sponge can be used alone without any cleanser.
  • Rub in circular motions to remove dirt from the pores without scratching the skin.
  • Rinse out completely.
  • Then press between palms to remove excess water from sponge and hang to dry.
  • After 3 months:  Sanitize the sponge or replace.
  • If you see mold or bacteria growth, do not use the sponge.[It is a natural product and can grow mold or bacteria if not properly handled.]
  • Some users have boiled it in water to sterilize it, or saturated it in water and microwaved for 20 seconds to sterilize.
  • If you continue to squeeze and hang it to fully dry between uses, it could last for up to 6 months. 
  • To store: After each use, rinse out the sponge and gently press between palms to remove excess water. 
  • Hang up to dry between uses, with the included string hanger.
  • Never wring out the sponge as this might damage or alter its shape.
  • Replace after 3 to 6 months. 
  • Compostable.
