I'm not a sponge! Loofahs are made from the fibers in gourd-like tropical fruits (think cucumber!). The spongy texture is perfect for exfoliating dry skin to keep it smooth and sleek. Loofahs soften when wet and harden up again when they dry. Perfect accessory for your natural bathing experience! Apply liquid soap or rub a bar of soap on the loofah to create suds. Using a circular motion on your skin to scrub works great. Don't forget your heels and soles of your feet! We recommend drying out your loofah between uses and sanitizing it by putting it in boiling water for a few minutes or throwing it in the wash with your towels.
