FacialCare Sea Sponge
There is nothing more refreshing than washing your face at the end of a long day. But what if you want to go further? What if you want to pamper your skin while protecting the environment? A FacialCare sea sponge allows you to do just that.
You’ll enjoy the experience of washing your face with this supremely soft sea sponge, and you’ll feel good knowing it is an ethically harvested product that contains no toxic additives. Plus, it’s biodegradable. Compare that to wasteful face wipes with their long lists of incomprehensible ingredients!
Ready To Feel Revitalized?
Start by running your sponge under warm water. Watch the sponge puff up as the fibers expand and become silky soft. Each of the sponge’s delicate fibers sweeps the skin’s surface and gently removes dirt and grime that accumulates in your pores throughout the day. Use it with plain warm water for a quick refresh, with makeup remover at the end of a long day, or watch how the sponge creates a rich lather from the tiniest bit of soap for a deep cleanse.
Mediterranean Silk Sponge
There are millions of types of sea sponges in the world, but Natural Intimacy brand FacialCare come from a very specific sponge species. These are Mediterranean Silk sponges, a uniquely pleasant and silky sponge, are well known as the highest quality sponge in existence.
Unlike sponges harvested from the Caribbean or Atlantic oceans, Mediterranean sponges are extraordinarily delicate and soft— yet durable, robust, and long-lasting.
Harvesting these natural sponges is an important and delicate process. If a sponge is removed without careful planning, it disturbs the marine ecosystem. All Natural Intimacy brand FacialCare sea sponges are ethically harvested.
What is ethical harvesting? It is a gentle process where sponges are removed from their source without touching the roots. Similar to pruning a tree, this allows the stronger and bigger branches of sea sponge to regrow. The gentle harvesting process also causes millions of sponges cells to be released into the waters, where they are fertilized, attach to sea rocks, and grow into new sponges.

Sponges that are less than ideal are repurposed, while the most pristine, luxurious sponges are passed along to you.
