Clean and exfoliate your skin with a loofah.
Loofas (Luffa) are also great to use to stimulate blood circulation. When they dry, they feel quite coarse but once introduced to water they soften, and have a softer scrubby texture.
Did you know that Loofahs originate from India, where they still grow naturally. They are also known as the Sponge Gourd and/or the Egyptian Cucumber.
Why using a Loofah?
- Naturally grown
- 100% compostable
- 100% biodegradable
- Zero Waste
- Plastic-free skin exfoliator
- It's a vegetable ;-)
- Renewable resource
How to they grow? Once the fruit has matured the fibrous vascular tissue is harvested and dried to become a Loofah Sponge.
Directions: wet with warm water to soften it. You can then apply a small amount of soap or body scrub if desired. Using a gentle but firm circular motion, scrub your body starting below your neck and working your way down to your ankles.
Storage: Rinse and squeeze out your Loofah Sponge after each use and allow to dry. Either by hanging or storing on a free draining soap dish.
Note: It is recommended to soak the Loofah for 5 minutes in baking soda and warm water once a week.
Size: approx 10cm long and 6.5cm in diameter (when dry)
