100% Pure Konjac Sponge made from the roots of the Konjac plants grown in Gunma Prefecture, Japan
Binotama is a gentle facial and body cleansing and exfoliating sponge that effectively removes toxins and impurities from skin while gently exfoliating for a softer, smoother complexion.
Konjac root powder and water are mixed and heated.
Mixture is slowly dried and bleached under the sun.
Sponges are exposed to sunlight and natural cool breeze for up to 3 weeks.
They are shaped & tied to strings one by one.
The Konjac plant or Konnyaku is a perennial plant native to Asia. It is rich in vitamins (A, B1, B2, B6, B12, C, D, & E), protein, lipids, fatty acids and natural minerals such as copper, zinc, iron and magnesium.
Soak Binotama into clean water to soften the fibers
Gently massage onto skin in circular motion. (You may apply soap or your favorite facial cleanser onto the sponge first before massaging it to the skin.)
Thoroughly rinse the sponge and squeeze out excess moisture.
Hang to dry or place in the refrigerator. Like all natural fibers, konjac root degrades over time, so we suggest replacing it every 30 days.
For over 1,500 years now, it’s been used by the Japanese as a traditional healthy food and cooking ingredient.
With its vitamins and minerals and gentle texture, Konjac is not only a healthy food but also an excellent skin care ingredient. Originally, Japanese people used Konjac sponges as bath sponge for babies because of its very soft texture. Eventually, they started using Konjac as facial and body sponges for adults.
Because Konjac is 97% water and has excellent water-holding properties, when used as a facial/body sponge, the fiber hardly comes into direct contact with the skin and will not scrape even with hard scrubbing.
