How to Use
Use dampened as a soap sponge to cleanse the skin or dry for dry brushing to remove dead skin cells.
For cleansing: add water and soap until the sponge is soft and produces a foamy lather. Wash body in circular motions and rinse any soap residue with water leaving the skin clean and gentle to the touch.
For dry brushing: Use the sponge when it is completely dry. The texture will feel rough and hard to squeeze. Rub the dry sponge over skin in a clockwise circular motion to remove dead skin cells and buildup. Use before a shower for best results.

How Are Bath Sea Sponges Harvested?


Eco Friendly & Mineral Rich

Creates a Luxurious Lather & Revives Your Skin


What are the benefits of bathing with a natural sponge?
Using natural sponges in your shower helps to exfoliate the skin and remove dead skin cells. Sea sponges create a rich, soapy lather, which gently cleanses the skin and lifts any dirt in the pores. There are plenty of benefits when it comes to using a natural sea sponge for bathing instead of a synthetic sponge or loofah., While wool sea sponges are exfoliating and remove dead skin cells, they also are ideal for people with sensitive skin. Natural sponges cleanse gently and do not contain any chemicals or dyes that might irritate the skin. As an added benefit to the environment, natural bath sea sponges are sustainable and eco-friendly.
How do I use my Sóma sponge (bathing sponge)?
Natural bath sea sponges are the perfect addition to a coastal wellness routine.
Wet: Add water and soap, then lather in the bath or shower and rinse after use. Store in a way that allows the sponge to dry between uses.
Dry: Dry brush your body starting at the feet and moving upwards in a circular motion. Focus on lymph nodes and brush lighter where skin is softer.
How do I care for and store my Sóma sponge (body sea sponge)?
Wash your sponge with warm water. Drain out water by squeezing the sponge. *Do not wring as this can cause damage to the sponge. Store in a dry environment to remove remaining moisture naturally. If you are placing your sponge in the travel bag, use a towel to soak up any excess water and allow it to air dry as soon as possible after travel. The sponge should dry out entirely after every use in order to prolong its life. Hand-wash your sponge regularly, but do not use harsh chemicals or a washing machine to clean your sponge. When you get in the shower, first rinse your body sponge with lukewarm water to return to its bathing state.
Are natural sea sponges sustainable?
Natural body sponges from Nisiá are 100% natural and eco-friendly. They are sustainably harvested for regrowth in the ocean and are free of plastics and dyes that alternative synthetic sponges and loofahs contain. Natural bath sponges are biodegradable and compostable for a complete sustainable cycle. Nisiá sponges come in reusable drawstring bags.
Should the sponge be hard when it arrives?
Yes, natural body sponges are hard when dry, which makes them perfect to dry brush or exfoliate your skin. Once water is absorbed the sea sponges become soft and ready to lather with soap. Hard wool sponges and silk sponges are actually more durable and will last longer than low quality sponges.
