Either before or after the start of your day, many of us can attest that taking a nice warm shower can help calm our minds, relax our bodies and for some, maybe the only solo time we have in our day.
Orijin Design Co., – a Vancouver based product design company that focuses on self-health and mindfulness products – have launched the Orijin Sponge on Kicksterer; A 100% all natural charcoal infused bathing sponge that gently exfoliates all skin types, is pH balancing, naturally alkaline and antimicrobial.
Most bathing sponges you’ll find in-store or online today are made with the use of chemicals, synthetic oils, plastic and artificial coloring. Oscar Bonilla Jr, founder at Orijin Design Co., says, “We call it a glorified plastic bag. What most people don’t know is that the large majority of bathing sponges that are purchased today are not only made from not idle materials, there also a massive breeding ground for smells and bacterial growth, damaging to the environment and have no benefits for our skin whats so ever.”
The Orijin Sponge has been ergonomically designed to feel great in your hands and all over your body. It’s made from the Japanese konjac plant root, a perennial plant native to Japan that has been known and used in Japanese culture since the 6th century for it’s natural skin benefits. The surface design you see on the Orijin Sponge helps channel water from across its surface, making for a better lathering experience while also helping with more efficient drying time. And because the Orijin Sponge is infused with Bamboo Charcoal, it’s antimicrobial, allowing the konjac fibers to absorb debris and impurities without allowing bacteria grow or linger.
