Bath sponge of unbleached eco sea sponge
These Mediterranean sponges are harvested with the utmost respect for nature and the environment, without damaging the roots of the sponges in the seabed. Sponges grow back when pruned, and are therefore a 'renewable product'.
Responsible pruning also extends the life of a natural sponge.
Unpruned sponges do not grow older than 10 years, but if trained divers prune the sponge expertly so that the roots remain undamaged, the sponge can renew itself and live longer!
Sea sponges are naturally highly absorbent and durable, non-toxic and 100% biodegradable.
Sponges become silky soft when wet, and are therefore ideal for sensitive skin, and can be washed out and reused many times.
Unbleached sponges retain 100% of their absorbency and durability, and are healthier for your body.
Hygienic natural material
Material that absorbs is often a paradise for bacteria that love wet, warm spots.
Naturally occurring enzymes in the sea sponge prevent the growth of bacteria and stop mould growth. This means that natural sponges are called a toxic-free and hypoallergenic product. The thousands of pores ensure a high absorption force but also that liquids can easily flush through. This makes the natural sponge a clean and bacteria free product, also for intimate use.
How you clean your sponge depends on how you use it. Choose the method that suits you best:
Clean in between - Wash the sponge with warm water and a little hand soap, rinse well!
Even Cleaner / Disinfect - Mix some (apple) vinegar with water in a bowl, in a ratio of 1:10 Let the sponge soak for 10 minutes. A few drops of TeaTree oil will disinfect even better. Rinse well!
Completely Clean / Powerful Disinfect - Soak the sponge for 10 minutes in a bowl of water with 1 spoon of baksoda (sodium bicarbonate). This refreshes and restores the sponge. Rinse well.
We advise you to clean the sea sponge before using it for the first time!
