I received quite a few items over the weekend, but this package from Updated Trends really got me stoked.
|Plant not included, lol.|
Konjac, the plant from which these sponges are made, thrives in tropical and warm subtropical countries such as India, China, Japan, and Korea. Konjac is well-known in these countries as a food ingredient, as well as its various health-giving properties.
In Japanese cuisine, Konjac (also known as konnyaku) can usually be found in dishes like oden and sukiyaki. While in China, Konjac is usually consumed in jelly or tofu-form. In Korea, it has become quite popular as an exfoliant and a face massage accessory, as in the case of My Konjac Sponge.
With five variants to choose from, my Konjac Sponge can be used even on the most sensitive skin. Babies included!
|Moon Korean Ocher, Php 365.|
|Water Drop Bamboo Charcoal, Php 365.|
|Moon Original, Php 345.|
These sponges are manufactured in one of my favorite tourist destinations - Jeju Island, Korea. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Jeju Island is home to the majestic Jeju Volcano, and to one of the cleanest and purest water in the world.
And just as My Konjac Sponge is gentle on skin, it's gentle to the environment, too. These sponges come from naturally sustainable and biodegradable ingredients, and are made by hand in a sterile and safe environment. They are also tested to the highest standards and have UK and EU certification for hygiene and purity.
I'll be posting more about each of these sponges in the days to come. Bath time is sure gonna be fun with these new buddies!
In the meantime, you can check out My Konjac Sponge's official website or place orders via Updated Trends on Multiply or Facebook.
