The Natural Sea Sponge Company are at the forefront of ethical sourcing and manufacture of grooming products. The Natural Sea Sponge Company Medium Honeycomb Sea Sponge is a luxurious bath time pampering product.
A sea sponge is a naturally occurring sponge. Honeycomb sponges are the highest quality variety of sea sponges as they are particularly soft and absorbent. Their unique texture exfoliates the skin in a gentle, caring, and natural way for a truly pampering experience, and they create a great lather when paired up with a high-quality soap. Honeycomb sponges are also hypoallergenic and therefore ideal for those with sensitive skin.
Sea sponges are an ethical choice as they are 100% natural, biodegradable, and durable. They have been growing in the sea for millions of years, extracting nutrients from the seawater around them.
Sea sponges have an incredible ability to renew themselves, so taking part of a sponge causes no damage to the organism and it will quickly grow more of itself to replace any part that is taken. Harvesting sea sponges actually enhances the health of the organism as it encourages regeneration and self-renewal.
The Natural Sea Sponge Company farm sponges in an ethical way, ensuring only certified divers harvest the sponges individually by cutting the sponge at the base, leaving the ‘roots’ intact and enabling the sponge to re-grow. Only sponges above 5” are permitted to be harvested, leaving the smaller ones to grow. The sponges are sourced directly from local divers, ensuring the old tradition of sponge fishing is not lost.
This honeycomb sea sponge originates in the East Mediterranean.
The Natural Sea Sponge Company go through 42 hand checked stages of processing to bring this high-quality sea sponge to you, but in rare cases bits of ocean debris may remain in the sponge so make sure to check over it before use.
For best results, rinse well after every use and squeeze out any excess water. Allow the sponge to dry naturally, avoiding bleaching, boiling, machine washing, writhing, or twisting, which may cause damage.
When correct care is taken, honeycomb sponges can last around two years, making them a great option if you’re looking to reduce waste and save money in the long term.
