Body LoofahRegular price € 3,75
LoofCo body loofahs are hand-made in Egypt from the loofah plant, a biodegradable alternative to plastic exfoliator pads. The body loofah fits neatly into the hand and when immersed in water swells up to become a soft, spongy and flexible pad. The sponge is a soft, gentle skin exfoliator when used in the shower or in bath. It will last for months with normal use and when worn out can be composted. Each pad has a convenient hanging loop.
Loofah is a renewable raw material that absorbs CO2 when growing. The loofah plant is a vigorously growing vine from the cucumber family that is rich in durable fibres, yet soft and flexible. When ripe, the inside of the loofah fruit develops a network of fibres that is perfect for cleaning and exfoliating purposes when dried. The loofahs are harvested, peeled, deseeded and then dried, cut into lengths and processed by hand in Egypt. This natural tradition has been passed down through many generations.
LoofCo's mission is to offer an alternative to mass-produced plastic brushes, pads, scourers and shower puffs that will not biodegrade. LoofCo sponges are hand-made in Egypt and are based on traditional designs, proven over generations, that are highly effective for cleaning. LoofCo farming practices are sustainable and meet the highest environmental standards. LoofCo ensures that local farmers and production workers have an inclusive workplace and are treated fairly with wages and benefits, such as medical insurance, higher than normal rates. LoofCo does not employ any children.
How to use
Rinse thoroughly before first use. In the shower or in bath use the loofah on damp skin with soap or gel in a gentle circular motion to clean, freshen, exfoliate and invigorate your skin. To keep the loofah fresh between uses, rinse and squeeze out excess water and hang to dry from the cotton string loop. Occasionally wash in the washing machine or by hand if desired.
