The Konjac sponge for the face is a small sponge of Japanese origin, made from the tuber of the Amorphophallus konjac. This plant of the family Araceae grows in Japan, but also in Vietnam, China and Indonesia. It has a spherical tuberous rhizome (underground stem) that can weigh up to 4 kg and reach 25 cm in diameter. This rhizome, once reduced to powder, is used to obtain the famous Konjac flour, the basis for making the small sponges sold in natural cosmetics shops. The Konjac sponge is then mixed with other ingredients of natural origin such as coal or yellow, red, green and black clay, which are chosen according to the skin.
100% of natural origin and biodegradable.
How do I use the black Konjac charcoal sponge?
The Black Konjac Sponge is to be used in the morning & in the evening to remove make-up and cleanse the face. As it dries, it curls up and becomes hard. Just pass the sponge under water and it will be soaked in water and regain its plumped appearance and soft texture.
Our Konjac charcoal sponge is perfect for the Akane Asian Triple Cleansing Care routine. This technique, handed down from generation to generation, cleanses the skin deep down for an even and radiant complexion. To achieve this:
1. Use the sponge to remove excess Akane Cleansing Oil. Contrary to popular belief, oil make-up removal does not grease the face and is perfectly suited to combination skin as it helps to self-regulate the natural production of sebum.
2. Rinse the sponge with lukewarm water, then apply Akane Fresh Cleansing Jelly to the sponge. Massage to create a lather using circular movements. Wipe the face with a soft towel, patting gently so as not to irritate the skin.
3. Rinse the sponge and air dry it by hanging it up with the cord. It is advisable to wring out the Konjac sponge gently with charcoal, squeezing it gently without twisting it so as not to damage its fibres. You can also immerse it in boiling water for a few minutes once a week to purify it.
Day after day, the skin is smoother, the skin texture finer, the complexion more radiant. For dry and sensitive skin, use the Konjac Pink Akane sponge enriched with pink clay, or the Konjac White Akane sponge, enriched with white clay.
