Loofahs are commonly used during shower and bath times to exfoliate and provide a great refreshing clean. Sadly, it is common for a lot of loofahs which are made from nylon or polyester, which are both types of plastic and non-biodegradable. These two synthetic materials are made from petrochemicals which are not eco-friendly and can be very harmful to the environment because of the microplastics that it releases in every wash, and the non-biodegradable nature of the remaining loofah when thrown away. Fortunately, an amazing natural bath sponges and loofahs can be created from the 100% natural plants.

The Egyptian Loofah Exfoliating Wash Pad for example is made from the tropical and subtropical vines of the Luffa or Loofah plant (a member of the cucumber family). Its fruit which when fully developed is fibrous and is the source of the exfoliating natural loofah washcloth, so completely 100% natural and eco-friendly, a great alternative to the plastic (nylon/polyester) options.  

Egyptian loofah exfoliating wash pads have loose weave and flexible fibres which soften and expand when wet, the other side of Egyptian loofah exfoliating wash pads is an extra soft cotton side for regular washing if not needing to exfoliate.

At first the loofah exfoliating wash pads may look stiff and abrasive in texture, but it softens in water, creating a great natural bath sponge or washcloth. Simply rub your soap bar or shower gel into the natural loofah washcloth to lather up and use. Exfoliating with this natural bath sponge two to three times a week is beneficial for toning and firming the skin, it also encourages cell regeneration and helps in the removal of toxins through the skin.

To prolong its life, keep it dry in between use by hanging to dry and allowing it to return to its firm dry form. After its useful days, simply add this to your compost, cutting it into smaller pieces first to help speed up its time to degrade.

So why not switch from plastic nylon and polyester exfoliating products to these 100% natural Egyptian loofah exfoliating wash pads and contribute to the reducing plastic waste efforts of so many.
