Removing dead skin is essential for healthy skin.
The African Bath Sponge, known for its roughness, is an amazing exfoliating tool. This long piece of nylon is sewn into a pattern of interlocking of knots that creates a highly durable, diamond structured grid that will last for many years. Its generous size allows you to exfoliate all of your hard-to-reach areas. This exfoliating action softens skin and improves blood circulation, leaving you feeling energized and refreshed.
Because it dries quickly, the African bath Sponge does not breed bacteria (unlike a loofah).
How to Prepare Your Sponge
1. Soak in hot soapy water for 15 minutes.
2. Vigorously agitate the sponge with your hands (like you would hand wash an item of clothing).
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2.
4. Rinse and hang to dry.
Be gentle when using the sponge for the first few times. It can feel rough on the skin at first, but will gradually soften.
