WHERE DO NATURAL SEA SPONGES COME FROM?
Natural sea sponges grow on the ocean floor, thriving in regions like the Mediterranean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico. Nisiá sponges are sustainably harvested from the ocean by sponge divers who use special tools that ensure healthy regrowth. The sponges are laid on the deck of the boat to be sunbaked, which dries them and removes algae, then they are rinsed to remove any remaining residue. They are trimmed to the ideal dimension, making them easier for cleansing and skincare.
Natural sea sponges are hypoallergenic and toxin-free and naturally prevent the growth of bacteria and mildew, which makes them very sought-after for personal hygiene use.
Why Use Sea Sponges for Body Cleansing
Sea sponges are eco-friendly and useful, acting as gentle, hypoallergenic sponges for body or facial skin cleansing. Synthetic sponges most closely match the texture of the sea sponge, but they are more expensive and not reusable. Sea sponges have a soft, porous structure that is ideal for absorbing water and soap. They are durable and last long, making them a great choice for those looking for an environmentally friendly option for body or facial cleansing.
The modern-day sponges are generally filled with synthetic materials, but natural sea sponges offer several advantages over synthetic counterparts.
