According to the American Academy of Dermatologists, acne is the most common skin problem in the U.S.  It is estimated that as many as 50 million people in America suffer from this skin condition. Although acne is particularly prevalent among adolescents and young adults, it can persist well into adulthood. If you’re one of the millions of Americans experiencing acne, it’s important to have the right products to calm breakouts. One of the most soothing products which are also 100% vegan, and free of all additives and preservatives is a konjac sponge. Read on to learn how a konjac sponge can help soothe acne.

Konjac Sponges Remove Dead Skin Cells that Can Clog Pores

Made of fibrous vegetable roots of the konjac plant, konjac sponges are championed by dermatologists for their non-abrasive exfoliative properties. This supports clearer skin, as dead skin cells are one of the leading causes of clogged pores, which lead to pimples on the face.  

Exceptional, 100% Natural Cleansing 

Konjac sponges also ensure that you can thoroughly cleanse your face without leaving any residue from preservatives, petroleum-derived additives, or dyes. The sponges are made from organically grown konjac plants, that are slightly alkaline, making them excellent dirt removers that will not irritate the skin.  

Gentle Enough for Use on Sensitive Skin

Konjac sponges are gentle enough for daily use even if you suffer from sensitive skin.  Completely free of BPAs, parabens, preservatives, and antibacterial agents, konjac sponges are as gentle on your face as they are to the earth thanks to being organic and sustainable. 

Konjac Sponges are More Hygienic than Washcloths or Loofahs

Konjac sponges dry much faster than a washcloth or loofah, which makes them more a more hygienic product to use on the face. The reason? Fast-drying sponges are at reduced risk of growing bacteria, or mold.   

Active Ingredients Such as Charcoal May Help Remove Excess Oil

Konjac sponges from premium farms including Yamamoto Farms at the base of the Japanese Alps may be infused with ingredients that can help to calm and reduce acne. Charcoal konjac face sponges, for example, have high-grade charcoal powder kneaded into the sponge.  Charcoal has been used for thousands of years to draw out poisons (detoxify) our bodies.  The same properties inherent in charcoal that aid in drawing poisons from the body, work to draw out excess oil from the glands on the face, which contribute to pimples.   

May Calm Inflammation from Acne

If you’re experiencing a breakout, a green tea konjac sponge may help to calm your irritated skin. Green tea includes anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce irritation, swelling, and redness associated with acne.  

Other varieties of konjac sponges that contain anti-inflammatory properties include the white peach konjac sponge, which has been infused with peach leaf extract, and the wild mint konjac sponge, which contains Hakka (Japanese mint).
