What is a Natural Sea Sponge???

Updated: Nov 19

When I first used one of our natural sea sponge soap products, I noticed a change in my skin. I rarely had to use a moisturizer and my skin felt GREAT. If you are like me, you like to feel good in your skin. I also noticed a decrease in the amount of eczema out-breaks I would endure. This intrigued me, so I had to investigate this natural sea sponge I was using on a daily basis.

The list of benefits of the natural sea sponge is long. A sea sponge is a living & growing organism. The sponge gets harvested and leaves another sponge that will grow larger than before to produce more sponges. This is pretty cool because harvesting these beauties can be environmentally friendly resulting in the production of more sponges.

Natural sea sponges are a natural exfoliant. This means they will gently remove the dead skin cells on the top layer of your skin and keeping your pores clear of impurities while allowing new skin to grow. Kind of like washing away the old while clearing way for the new.

Natural sea sponges are beneficial in that they are full of nutrients and are self-cleaning. With their intricate shapes, canals and enzymes, they do not allow mold or impurities to grow with in them. Therefor they do not absorb or allow bacteria to grow. They are also biodegradable, hypoallergenic, free of chemicals, toxins and by-products.

Overall the natural sea sponges in our Goat’s Milk and Olive Oil soaps are safe and beneficial for your skin.

It’s no wonder they are an everyday use in our home.
