Care For The Planet While Caring For Your Body
Does your wash routine cleanse, renew, and nourish your skin? Or are you unknowingly jeopardizing your health with harsh chemicals and additives from something as seemly harmless as your sponge?
Are you caring for the planet while caring for your body? Or is your sponge another disposable product that will end up in a landfill?
While much is said about natural soap and body washes, a natural bath sponge is essential to a holistic, luxurious cleansing routine.
Typical synthetic sponges are harmful to the environment and bad for your body. Petroleum-based ingredients, bleached cellulose, and hormone-altering chemicals leach into your skin during every warm sudsy shower or bath. They retain dirty water, creating a breeding ground for mold and bacteria. Because sponges are not biodegradable, the average sponge continues to clog landfills and pollute our planet for centuries.
But nature gifted us with the perfect bath sponge. Natural, biodegradable, and wonderfully luxurious. The BodyCare sea sponge.
Mediterranean Honeycomb Sponge
BodyCare sea sponges come from the Honeycomb sea sponge family and are found in the cool waters of the Mediterranean sea. These unique sponges are hearty and dense, created by a complex structure of thousands of channels and pores.
The sponge's cellular makeup is what makes it such an effective bathing tool. It produces a rich lather with just the tiniest bit of soap or body wash, and the fibers themselves draw buildup and dirt away from the skin. They exfoliate as they cleanse, removing dead skin cells and encouraging the growth of new ones. The result? Smooth, glowing skin free of toxins and impurities. Naturally occurring enzymes inhibit the growth of bacteria or mold within the sponge, so you know you are always getting a pure cleanse.
Attention To Detail
Our team takes the time to select, inspect, and test each and every sponge before we decide if to decide if it meets our exacting requirements for a BodyCare sea sponge. We check for optimal density, size, and uniformity because we know these factors affect your bathing experience. Sponges that are less than ideal are repurposed, while the most pristine, luxurious sponges are passed along to you.
The Perfect Size
A sponge that is too small makes bathing tedious, a sponge that is too big can be awkward and uncomfortable to handle. Your BodyCare sea sponge is a generous 11.5cm, just the right size to fit in your hand for the ideal washing experience.
Harvesting these natural sponges is an important and delicate process. If a sponge is removed without careful planning, it disturbs the marine ecosystem. All Natural Intimacy brand BodyCare sea sponges are ethically harvested. What is ethical harvesting? It is a gentle process where sponges are removed from their source without touching the roots. Similar to pruning a tree, this allows the stronger and bigger branches of sea sponge to regrow. The gentle harvesting process also causes millions of sponges cells to be released into the waters, where they are fertilized, attach to sea rocks, and grow into new sponges.
We do our best to diligently inspect each and every IntimateCare sponge, but because these sponges grow in the sea with other marine life, they might contain traces of typical sea residue. Don't worry, it's natural.
Simply clean or sterilise your sponge before use.
Wash your sponge well between uses. Allow to air dry away from surfaces.
The best method of cleaning will vary depending on how you use your sponge. Choose a method that works best for you. Do not use harsh soaps or chemicals that can harm the delicate fibers of the sponge.
