Why use My Eco Sponge?
Konjac facial cleansing sponges have been used for generations for a clear, beautiful complexion. It has a durable structure that gently glides across the skin delivering a pure and simple solution to wash, cleanse and exfoliate all in one!
My Eco Sponge has a unique propriety layer that can hold water very well. When the sponge is saturated with water, its surface is covered by a water layer. This water layer on the sponge’s surface constantly acts as a buffer to the skin and the layer forms a barrier between the sponge and the skin. As a result, the skin is never in direct contact with the fiber and it will not scratch and damage the skin even with hard scrubbing.
My Eco Sponge is perfect. for those who have skin irritations, abrasions, sunburn, bruising, facial injections, surgery, peels, and other beauty treatments, as well as for children and babies.

Is My Eco Sponge is naturally alkaline?
Yes, it can neutralize the acidic substance on the skin, this compensates the acidity of blemished and oily skin. So that means no more pimples.
What about the PH Balance?
Based on the research I have done, it appears that the claim of “pH balanced” is nothing more than marketing promotional hype to scare people into buying “pH balanced” products.
Your skin makes a lightly acidic secretion to help protect itself. This is called the Acid Mantle. Because it is acidic, the most effective way to clean it off, along with excess oils, dirt and germs, is by using My Eco Sponge. We have an amazing and clever system, immediately your skin begins recreating the acid mantle, within 20 minutes it is about 1/3 of the way and with 2-3 hours it is back up at full strength.
