A while back – at the baby show, we purchased the Kuu Konjac sponge, a natural sponge derived from Konjac root plant. 

We bought it to trial it.  At the show the representative told us that it is a biodegradable product that actually degrades as you use it. So we bought it to trial it, to see whether it lives up to the story.  In short – it does.  It’s a great product. Great for soft baby skin.  And we were told it would start to degrade after 3 months, which it did, but it only really become unusable after 5 months of bathing baby every day. 

You can get more information from the manufacturer website, but to give you a quick summary:

  • 100% natural
  • Free from colours, additives and preservatives
  • Biodegradable
  • Very gentle on baby’s soft skin
  • Very soft once water has been absorbed, but dries hard

Frankly it’s not cheap.  $8,95 for one sponge.  But I certainly think it’s worth it.
