What's a Daily Concepts Your Konjac Sponge?

This is a blog post from the Daily Concepts blog. I found it to be extremely helpful when trying to understand all the benefits of the Konjac sponge. My skin is a bit on the dry side so i went for the Turmeric one. LOVED IT! I didn't use a cleanser and it was such a great exfoliation. Wonder no more, here is everything you need to know about the Konjac Sponge: 

He’s back! Daily Concepts’ Founder and Shower Expert, Emilio Smeke. A question we’re hearing a lot recently — What the heck is Daily Concepts’ Your Konjac Sponge?
You can see all three Daily Concepts’ Your Konjac Sponges all in a Zen-like stack above. What you’re seeing: Charcoal, Pure and Tumeric Konjac Sponges.
Yes, yes, we hear you. But what are they?
Emilio: Konjac is a jelly-like substance made from the Konnyaku potato, which is found in Japan, Indonesia, Korea and Southeast Asia. Often used in Japan for beauty treatments targeting delicate skin, konjac sponges typically contain calcium hydroxide and/or oxide calcium extracted from eggshells is also found in konjac sponges. What makes Daily Concepts’ Your Konjac Sponge unique is that it’s made up of 100% konjac root.
What makes Daily Concepts’ Your Konjac Sponges so good for the skin?
Emilio: Because of their unique net-like structure, Daily Concepts’ Your Konjac Sponges have a massage-like effect on the skin, promoting blood circulation and deep cleansing capabilities.
Unique to the konjac sponge is its naturally weak alkalinity, which neutralizes acidity of substances that can gather on the skin by creating a layer of water between the sponge and skin. Additionally, they break down dirt and balance skin’s pH.
Which of the three types of sponges is right for me?
Emilio: The bamboo charcoal sponge helps absorb impurities to purify and deep cleanse skin. In other words, it exfoliates and detoxifies.
The tumeric konjac sponge heals and prevents dry skin, as well as keeping the skin supple and improving its elasticity. In other words, it’s hydrating and regenerating.
Daily Concepts Your Konjac Sponge in Pure has no preservatives, no chemicals and no color. Like its name says, it’s, well, just PURE. It’s excellent for people with sensitive skin.
All of Daily Concepts’ Your Konjac Sponges are preservative and chemical-free.
How can they be used?
Emilio: Daily Concepts’ Your Konjac Sponges are 100% natural and can be used by all ages and skin types. They’re perfect for removing skin impurities effectively and easily with their alkalinity nature and pH balance of 8.4. We recommend them for atopic skin, makeup removal, deep cleansing to prevent acne or blackheads and moisturizing the skin.
