Loofah is a 100% natural product obtained from the inside of a ripe loofah plant. After the plant blooms, the flower develops into a long, gourdlike plant that resembles a giant cucumber or zucchini. The gourds are then harvested and can be left to dry out for up to six months. Dried gourds are soaked in water, peeled, and their seeds are removed. Once completely dry, they can be sliced, cut, or shaped in a variety of ways before they’re sold as sponges.
These 5-6cm round centre cuts will gently exfoliate and stimulate circulation for an all-over clean, invigorating feeling.
Suitable with all soap types.
Great for doubling up as a soap saver. Just pop one underneath a soap bar to help it dry quicker.
How to use
Taking care of your loofah
The longer loofah sits left wet the more it deteriorates, so make sure you allow it to dry out between uses. Use a dry towel to thoroughly wring out the moisture. Leave in a cool, dry place outside of your bathroom when you’re finished (to prevent it from collecting moisture again). Replace every 3-4 weeks to prevent bacteria from building up. This pack of 8 will last you up to 8 months!
