Honeycomb Sea Sponge Hippospongia communis Honeycomb sea sponges are the finest quality of natural sponge available – they are silky soft, highly absorbent and create a luxurious lather. This is because they are gathered from the Mediterranean where the cooler sea temperature and greater depths create very strong dense sponges. Sustainably harvested in Mediterranean Sea and hand processed in UK, our sponges are approximately 3.5”. Rinse with warm water after use and allow to air dry naturally These sponges can last 2 years + with normal care. Sea sponges are the most natural and caring ways to cleanse, massage and gently exfoliate your skin and are superior to any synthetic alternative. When wet they can be compared to the feel of silk yet they can clean like no other washcloth can. Sea Sponges are hypoallergenic and suitable for even the most sensitive of skins. They are very long lasting as they are more resistant to abrasion and they will not peel like synthetic sponges while being used. Sea Sponges are better for bathing and cleansing because they soak up and hold more water without dripping. Natural sponges naturally inhibit the growth of bacteria and wash out more quickly and easily and will not retain odours.
