Collection: Natural Sea sponges

A silk sea sponge is considered the smoothest and softest natural sea sponge. A natural sea sponge is, as the word describes, a sponge created by nature and not an artificially produced sponge. These sea sponges grow at the bottom of the sea. What all sea sponges have in common is that they contain these fantastic channels, which allow them to absorb oxygen and food. The honeycomb sea sponge is native to the Mediterranean Sea, where it grows at 15-50 metres below sea level. Divers dive to the bottom of the sea and collect the sponges but leave the root of the sea sponge to grow back. As the sponge is a natural product, its size and shape can vary.
A soft feeling for the skin
The silk sponge comes from a group of natural sea sponges called "fine silk sea sponges". The sponge is called a "silk sponge" because of its incredibly tiny and smooth pores, which make it irresistibly soft. The sponge's many small channels allow it to absorb a large amount of water. This makes the sponge very useful as a bath sponge for infants or small children.
Therefore, the natural sea sponge is incredibly hygienic as a bath sponge and is recommended for people with allergies or sensitive skin.
How can I keep my natural sea sponge clean?
A natural sponge is by nature a strong and durable product and can, with proper care, last for many years. Therefore, we have made a brief description of the most important steps you need to know about the maintenance of the product. First of all, it is important to wash the sponge thoroughly with clean water after use. Make sure that all soap has been removed, if soap was used. Soap remaining in the sponge can make it soft and slimy, so it is important to wash it thoroughly. It is recommended to use cold or slightly warm water to clean the sponge, as too hot water can damage it. Then drain the sponge and leave it in a dry, ventilated place until it is completely dry. Never twist a natural sponge, as this can also damage it. Instead, drain it by squeezing it hard with your hands. If you use the sponge on a daily basis, it is recommended that you place it in salt water for 24 hours once a week for optimal care. The salt water should contain 125 grams of salt per litre of water. Finally, take the sponge out, clean it with clear water, drain it and let it dry.
