4 ways you will benefit from using our Natural Sea Sponges
Natural sea sponges have many benefits for your skin and the environment. These hypoallergenic sea sponges are great for those with skin sensitivities. They have antibacterial properties, And since they’re 100% natural, they contain no plastic or toxic chemicals that could harm the planet. When sponges are harvested, the sponge divers hand cut each sponge to ensure that more than one inch of the base remains intact. The sponge then re-grows back to its original form within 3-5 years. Studies show that areas harvested actually increase the population density of sponge.
What are sea sponges ?
Sea sponges are simple, multicellular creatures that live in the oceans and they are the oldest cleaners in the world. They pre-date dinosaurs by around 400 million years, but unlike T-Rex and others, they are still alive today
1st : Naturally inhibit the growth of bacteria
Natural sea sponges have enzymes in them that make them naturally anti bacterial, they inhibit the growth of mildew and mold and they are also naturally hypo-allergenic and toxin free.
2nd : Environmentally Safe & biodegradable
Unlike synthetic sponges, which aren’t biodegradable or durable, natural sea sponges are earth friendly and sustainable! Not only do they last for years, they break down safely and naturally once disposed, which means they don’t harm the environment.
3rd : They don't develop nasty odours
Sea sponges unlike synthetics are naturally antibacterial essentially self cleaning (because of their pore structure) and as a result don't develop the nasty odors normally associated with a kitchen sponge.
4th: They are completely renewable
Natural sea sponges have been harvested for centuries and done properly actually is beneficial to the sponge population as a whole. Harvesting sea sponges by cutting them off with a knife rather than "hooking" them by ripping the whole sponge off the bottom actually strengthens their ability to regenerate and extends the lifetime. Cut sponges regrow often healthier and bigger than the original. Over time this harvesting method can dramatically increase the population density and overall health of the sponges being harvested.
