The natural sponge, called Spongiae Officinalis or Mediterranean Archipelago, fished in the sea of Lampedusa, has important health properties: it is exfoliating and its particular alveolar structure helps to expel the many bacteria that instead lurk in the normal sponges of daily use. Its delicacy, the natural substances contained in it and the eco-sustainability, make the sponge naturale_cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b_bad7-136bd5-3194-bb3b_bad5c3-136bd7-136bd7-136bd7 makeup but especially for skincare.


But what are sea sponges?


In fact, as they do not possess vital organs, they could be considered plants to all intents and purposes, but since they do not carry out chlorophyll photosynthesis and feed on currents, they are classified as animals.

Fishing for these sponges takes place by cutting and not by uprooting. In this way, behaving just like a plant, this sponge grows back even more vital and florid than before. The sponge colonies of the Mediterranean, in fact, are protected by strict regulations that monitor fishing methods and determine the resting periods of the colonies.


The sea sponge, as a skincare accessory, brings added value to the daily routine thanks to its multiple uses and benefits. In fact, it can be used as a make-up remover, effectively eliminating make-up without rubbing, or to apply make-up, such as foundation. Furthermore, its light exfoliating action on the skin helps eliminate the grayness of dry skin. Also suitable for the most sensitive and sensitized skin, thanks to the minimal friction it exerts it can also be used on the eye contour area.


In short, known for thousands of years by the population of the island for its incredible beneficial properties, the sea sponge of Lampedusa is an essential accessory for a healthy and eco-sustainable authentic beauty care.

They are biodegradable and, if properly stored, they last up to 1 year. We recommend that you rinse the sponge well after use and let it dry in the air, not in the sun.

The dimensions of each sponge can vary but generally they are between 9 and 12 cm.
