Konjac Sponge News

The woman behind the original Konjac Sponge, Michele Riley

The Konjac Sponge Company is the creator of the original luxurious and skin-friendly Korean beauty tool – the Konjac Sponge. Focusing on simple yet effective products, we pride ourselves on being completely pure, vegan and cruelty free registered.

How did Michele do it?

“I set up the company because I had super sensitive skin and found a gap in the market for this amazing Korean-based product. I took the product and westernised it because the western world had never heard of Konjac before, never mind Konjac Sponges.

With a background in natural and organic baby products, I stumbled into beauty completely by chance.

Back in 2010, I was searching for a baby sponge - something that was natural and would protect delicate baby skin. I came across a similar product (but not quite the same) to today’s Konjac Sponge, in Asia. Having purchased samples, I began to test it on my own skin, as the kids were too old for ‘baby trials’.

After three weeks of use on my face, I could not believe the condition of my skin and how soft it felt. My skin had never looked so good.

Now, I have the simplest skincare routine in the world. Twice a day, I cleanse with a Konjac sponge. Nothing else at all! Since I have very sensitive skin and use water-soluble makeup, I do not need any additional cleansers. I then wear mineral blusher over a tinted moisturiser and plain, water-soluble mascara. In the evenings, after my cleanse, I love to use Phytomone moisturiser.”
