Why Bathing With a Natural Sea Sponge Is Better
Most notably, sea sponges are exceptionally soft on the skin, lather amazingly well, and are super absorbent – due to their naturally porous nature – offering one of the most soothing and effective bathing experiences in the world. Sea sponges are also very dense and durable, lasting much longer than most synthetic bathing aids.
Bathing with a natural sea sponge is also good for you skin, because sea sponges contain many different sea minerals and enzymes that nourish and rejuvenate your skin ever so gently. Additionally, these innate enzymes naturally inhibit the odors, mildew, and bacteria commonly found in wash cloths and synthetic bathing sponges.
Lastly, bathing with a natural sea sponges is 100% earth friendly, because sea sponges are sustainably harvested and are a renewable resource. They are also naturally processed with minimal waste and without the uses of harsh chemicals or dyes and are 100% biodegradable.
