Based in Southern California, Gaia Republic Inc. was founded by two green-minded
entrepreneurs who were displeased and shocked to uncover harmful contents in many
mainstream brands. With their desire for a healthier lifestyle, they decided to
take matters into their own hands by bringing green innovations from farms and labs
to their homes. Inspired by our founders' experiences as a veteran business owner
and a retired surgeon, we create sustainable and natural innovations that deliver
eco-friendly solutions for our personal care. We make more than just beauty products;
they are aesthetic inspirations for our passion to care for our skin and our environment.
For thousands of years, Konjac, an exotic plant native to Eastern Asia, has been
used in Asian cuisines and medicines for its healthy nutrients. This popular ingredient,
now commonly used in food products and dietary supplements, is a powerful booster
for beautiful skin because it is naturally rich in vitamins (A, E, D, B1, B2, B6,
B12, and C) and minerals. And now we infuse this ancient recipe with modern technology
to create a revolutionary skin cleansing tool that serves as an all-in-one solution
for various skincare concerns.
Dr. Sponge™ is a biodegradable skin cleansing sponge made from food-grade konjac
fiber and healthy additives such as green tea and bamboo charcoal. This fair-trade
and cruelty-free skincare tool delivers gentle yet effective daily cleansing for
all skin types.
Originally created for babies and children, our sustainable sponges are one of the
most powerful solutions when it comes to complete care of your skin. They are extremely
gentle and soft. The unique “jello-like” fiber texture allows Dr. Sponge™ to smoothly
glide across your skin and mildly exfoliate simultaneously, making it suitable for
even the most sensitive skin. It works great at clearing pores, removing light makeup,
dirt, oil, and even blackheads, leaving your skin refreshed and revitalized after
each use. And continued usage leads to gradual improvement of the skin’s overall
condition. Made with over 90% pure plant fiber, our earth-friendly sponges help
to tone and maintain a healthy skin balance because konjac is naturally and mildly
alkaline. It works to balance your skin’s acidity and pH balance. Each sponge also
contains potent moisturizing ingredients with strong moisture retention abilities
for long-lasting comfort and skincare benefits.
We believe in high quality and ethically made products at affordable prices, so
Dr. Sponge™ is manufactured in an ISO certified facility that incorporates clean
energy. All products are produced under strict policies on health, safety, and environmental
regulations to ensure only the finest. In fact, our products have been tested by
various consumer testing labs and have passed numerous international standards.
Dr. Sponge™ is handmade, crafted in small batches, and uses premium ingredients.
We practice sustainable sourcing by working with local farmers. Our philosophy is
to build a brand base on the ideas of honesty, integrity, and respect. And these
don’t just apply to our employees. We are proud to honor conscious business practices
and are extremely lucky to work with our partners who share a similar ideology.
We want our customers to feel good and look great with simple and effective products
that improve their skin and support our environment.
