Responsibly harvested off the coast of the Philippines, this pure silk sea sponge is perfect for gentle face exfoliation. Naturally occurring minerals like calcium, magnesium, sodium, iron, zinc, and potassium that are contained in sea sponges nourish and benefit the skin. Sea sponges are a naturally renewable resource. When sponges are harvested, the sponge divers hand-cut each sponge to ensure that more than one inch of the base remains intact. The sponge then re-grows back to its original form within 3-5 years. Studies show that areas harvested actually increase the population density of sponges. Your sponge can last years if taken care of properly.
How to Use: Wet sponge and apply gentle circular motions on wet, soapy skin to buff away dead skin cells and dirt. Rinse and moisturize as normal.
About Nash and Jones: Founder Kim Rohwer started Nash and Jones out of necessity. After having kids and becoming more invested in the skincare products she was using for herself and her children, she realized many of her favorites contained harsh, ineffective, or unnatural ingredients. Thus, the Nash and Jones line was born, with a high-quality selection of naturally-derived skincare products and responsibly-sourced accessories.

-To disinfect your sponge: soak it in 1/4 cup hydrogen peroxide and 1 cup water, 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar (or white vinegar) in 1 cup of warm water, or 3 drops of tea tree oil in 1 cup of warm water
