What’s the Best Face Scrubber?

Using a facial scrubber to exfoliate your skin helps to remove dead skin cells, clean pores, and give your face a fresh, luminous appearance. However, you must exfoliate carefully to prevent skin irritation and redness. To ensure you don’t use chemicals that are too harsh for your skin, look for a natural, organic face sponge. So, what is the best face scrubber? Read on to learn why Konjac sponges are at the top of the list.

Konjac Sponge: Natural, Organic, Vegan Face Scrubber

Konjac sponges are made from colorless, odorless fibers of the konjac plant. These vegetable fiber sponges are grown exclusively at the Yamamoto Farm near the Japanese Alps. They are 100% organic and vegan, free of all synthetic chemicals and additives. As a premium face exfoliator, Konjac Sponges contain no dyes, impurities, pollutants, petroleum, preservatives, or toxins.

Dermatologists recommend Konjac sponges because of their gentle cleansing and exfoliating properties. They are so gentle that many people can safely use them as a face scrubber every day.

Best Facial Scrubber Based on Skin Type

All Konjac sponges are made from the fibers of the vegetable root. However, a variety of added (natural, organic) ingredients to the sponges offer benefits for specific skin types. The sponges are therefore available in a variety of colors and types. Here’s the best face scrubber for different skin types.

Dry Skin

If you have dry, flaky skin, look for a yellow or red Konjac sponge. The yellow sponge will contain all the benefits of the original Japanese Konjac sponge but will also have a moisturizing yuzu fruit extract.  Red Konjac sponges have been infused with Tsubaki seeds, which protect the skin from dryness and offer anti-inflammatory benefits.

  • Dull or Mature Skin
    As we age, the skin cells on our faces turn over more slowly. This can result in your face looking dull. All Konjac sponges will help promote faster skin cell turnover. But a pink Konjac face scrubber can provide even more significant facial brightening because it is infused with extracts of cherry tree leaves.
  • Inflamed Skin Skin that becomes irritated and inflamed easily will benefit from a light green Konjac sponge. The color comes from the infusion of green tea, which boasts anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.
  • Oily Skin
    If your skin is oily and you struggle with pimples, look for a grey Konjac sponge. The grey color results from the charcoal infused into the sponge.
  • Sensitive Skin
    If you have sensitive skin, it’s best to stick with the original white Konjac sponge. It contains no added extracts and is made entirely from Konjac root fibers, so it will not irritate the skin.
  • Uneven Skin Tone
    Soothing mint extract, along with Hakka extract, can help to correct uneven tone in the skin. Look for a light green Wild Mint Konjac sponge if your skin tone is uneven.
