After several years of searching for natural versions of my necessary belongings, it became clear that nature really provides!!! Nature's solutions are innovative, perfectly designed and of the highest beauty.
Whether washing your face, countertop or car, there is a natural solution with these sea sponges. The small silk sponges are perfect for washing your face or applying makeup. The medium wool bath sponges are gentle enough to wash a baby or an adult, shower or in the bath. The large yellow can be used for exfoliating, housekeeping, or washing the car.
Natural sea sponges contain enzymes that make them naturally antibacterial and inhibit the growth of mold and mildew. They are naturally hypo-allergenic and most importantly, ToxyFree:).
-have been used for bath and body use for over 2000 years
-they create a rich, luxurious lather, are highly absorbent, and are suitable for the most sensitive skin
-the large sponge can be used to remove dry skin and encourage good circulation or even as a decorative paint application
-Natural sea sponges are classified as animals rather than plants because they do not photosynthesize, but in every other way, they are more similar to plants. They do not have brains, digestive, circulatory or nervous systems and, once rooted, do not move.
-sustainably harvested by hand off the Florida Keys by Greek divers who carefully cut individual sponges in the traditional way
-when done properly, harvesting sea sponges is actually beneficial to the sponge population as a whole. Over time this harvesting method can dramatically increase the population density and overall health of the sponges being harvested.
Sea Sponge Use and Care:
Before their first use, rinse your sponges in clean water, and give them one last check for any remaining bits of seaweed or tiny shells. As these are natural products, sometimes tiny bits may escape careful checks. After each use, squeeze or shake out excess water and hang to dry. Natural sea sponges are perfect for your daily bath or shower, and with normal use and proper care, they can last for years.
These are whole sponges, which is what gives them their lovely naturally round and complete shape. Because they are not cut from other larger sponges, the water flows better, and they remain cleaner over time.
Commercial sponges found in stores contain triclosan, a chemical compound registered by the EPA as a pesticide! Although the FDA has banned the use of triclosan from "over-the-counter consumer antiseptic wash products (including hand soaps formulated as liquids, foams, and gels; bar soaps; and body washes)." Yet sponges which are used to apply these soaps on surfaces and our body are allowed.
