We are now selling natural sea sponges from the Greek island Kalymnos.
Sea sponges are simple multicellular creatures that live in the sea and they have been around for 600 million years.
They are 100% Organic, hypoallergenic, antibacterial, Eco friendly, fully biodegradable & a natural renewable resource.
Kalymnos is world famous as a sponge diving island. This type of sea sponge is called a honeycomb sponge and they are harvested in the Greek Aegean Sea by local sponge divers in a way that does not disrupt the biodiversity of the sea bed.
Ideal for mild exfoliation as it removes dead skin cells & debris from the pores of the skin and massages and deep cleans the epidermis.
They can be used with our goat's milk soap bars and clay shampoo bars.
Most synthetic man made sponges are made from petroleum and can  fall apart, shrink & become infested with bacteria and mildew in a very short time.
This unbleached natural coloured sea sponge can last up to 10 years if maintained properly by rinsing in fresh water when finished with and leaving to air dry. Sea sponges hold 2 to 3 times more water than an artificial sponge.
We buy them directly from a man on the island who purchases them from the divers and then he shapes and sorts them himself.
As this is a natural product no two sponges will be identical in shape or size. They have an estimated size of around 3.5 inches.
