Natural Loofah Exfoliating Body Sponge
Looking for more eco-friendly, plastic-free swaps for everyday items? Loofah is a natural cleansing sponge, made up of the fibrous skeleton of the loofah plant, and it can replace the traditional plastic shower puff or body polisher. Natural loofahs create gentle friction, making them perfect for helping along the process of shedding dead skin cells and increasing localised blood flow (improving circulation), effectively tackling dull-looking skin. Simply soak them in water to soften, and lather up with your favourite soap bar!
Increase the lifespan of your loofah by air drying between washes...hang it up on the handy cotton string! It can also be machine washed, if needed, then left to air dry. You can even occasionally soak your loofah in warm water with a few drops of peppermint essential oil - not only will it smell great, the oil has antimicrobal properties that help to deter bacterial growth.
When the loofah reaches the end of its life, you can safely compost it, or dispose of it in the knowledge that it will biodegrade (and not sit in landfill for decades like so many plastic shower puffs).
Our loofahs are approx 15cm long.
