What is a natural sponge?
A natural sponge (Hippospongia equina) is a simple form of life that occurs in all oceans, from the Caribbean to the Polar Seas. In the ocean it has the function of a natural filter since it pumps water through its body to feed on plankton and other small food particles. There are over 7,500 species of natural sponges, occurring in sizes from a few millimetres to over three metres in height. Depending on water temperature, depth and current, natural sponges require six months to Five years to grow.
Why should you use a natural sponge to wash?
Natural sponges are wonderfully soft, absorb a lot of water and release it under slight pressure. A bath with a natural sponge is a sensorial and luxurious experience. The fibres of natural sponges are ver y similar to those of silk. Tradition has it that natural sponges were used for body care back in the ancient world.
In contrast to a synthetic sponge, which consists of closed air bubbles, a natural sponge is composed
of a system of channels. Every pore is connected to another pore. Thus, dir t is simply washed out of the sponge. As a consequence, use of a natural sponge is extremely hygienic and recommended both for those with allergies and those with sensitive skin.
How do you take care of a natural sponge?
After use you should rinse the sponge with clear, lukewarm water and hang it up on a cord to dry. A natural sponge must not come into contact with boiling water because it solely consists of natural fibres. If the sponge gets very dirty, it can be washed in a laundry bag in the wool programme.
