Product Q&A

Is Dr. Sponge™ really suitable for me if I have extremely sensitive skin?

Yes, our sustainable sponges are free of preservatives and allergens that are found in many skincare products because Dr. Sponge™ was originally created for babies and children. We had to design something that is gentle enough for toddlers, so Dr. Sponge™ will work for your sensitive skin.

How to prevent bacteria build up on my sponge?

The trick for our natural sponges to stay clean and fresh is the 100% pure cotton string attached to each sponge. We highly recommend customers to air dry Dr. Sponge™ in between each usage not only for convenience but also to allow the sponge to quickly dry out. On top of this, many ingredients contained in the plant fiber used in Dr. Sponge™, such as vitamin E, serve as natural preservatives.

How long does each sponge last?

We recommend you to completely air dry your sponge in between each use. The cotton string attached to each sponge allows you to do this without an effort. Also, several ingredients contained in konjac fiber, such as vitamin E, serve as natural preservatives. For deep cleansing, drop your sponge in boiling water for 20 - 30 seconds. Make sure to let your sponge cool down before use.

How long does each sponge last?

Under normal daily usage, each sponge lasts for about 2 - 3 months, and with good care each sponge can be used for up to 5 - 6 months.

What are the different ways that I can use my sponge?

Dr. Sponge™ is great for both facial and body cleansing. It’s also wonderful at washing hair, removing makeup, and applying foundation. Wet your sponge, squeeze out excessive water, and pad dry with a towel. Then use the sponge wet with your favorite liquid base makeup to create a flawless and beautiful finish.

Is the sponge supposed to be used wet?

Yes, the sponge is designed to be used wet and never in its dry form, which can be hard and abrasive for your skin. Always rehydrate your sponge before each use.
