Amorphophallus Konjac or the KONJAC POTATO is a perennial plant, native to Asia and sometimes known as Konnyaku. Konnyaku or Konjac potatoes are cultivated for food in Japan & Korea, but wild forms grow naturally in many parts of China, Korea & Japan. Frequently growing wild at very high altitude, thus being very pure and pollutant free. The Japanese have been eating Konjac for over 1500 years. It was originally introduced to Japan as a medicine in the sixth century as it was recognized for its health giving properties way back then! It is used frequently as a thickener and jelly and is often present in noodles. It is a totally natural food source. Ninety seven percent of Konjac is water and three percent is Glucomannan, or dietary fiber. It is also rich in minerals and very low in calories. However, our sponges should never be put in the mouth! For over a century, the Japanese have been using the konjac vegetable as a beauty treatment for their skin. Amorphophallus konjac is an alkaline and is loaded with goodness. It contains so many natural properties such as protein, carbohydrate, iron, phosphorus, copper, zinc, vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin D, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, vitamin C and folic acid.
The unique net like structure of the vegetable fibres helps to stimulate blood flow, rejuvenate, cleanse, remove black heads and promote skin cell renewal. The Sponge is made from 100% pure Konjac plant root, which is naturaly alkalkine to balance the pH of the skin. The sponge is super soft and yet abrasive enough to provide a gentle exfoliation and remove dead skin cells. Your skin will feel fresh, smooth, radiant and soft. Approximately 7 cm in diameter, it fits perfectly in the palm of your hand for easy cleansing.
Before use, rinse and hydrate your Konjac Sponge in warm water. Squeeze out any excess water, and gently cleanse the skin in a circular motion. Only a small amount of cleansing gel needs to be added to your Konjac Sponge if desired. After use, always rinse your sponge well, squeeze out water and hang to dry in an airy place between uses. If properly cared for, your Konjac Sponge should last about 3 months.
Natural Konjac Sponge is suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive.
Bamboo Charcoal Infused Konjac Sponge contains activated carbon and various minerals that enhance absorbtion of excess oil. It also contains natural antioxidants that help fight acne-causing bacteria that are typically hard to reach.
Green Tea Infused Konjac Sponge is ideal for dry, mature and sun-damaged skin. The green tea adds additional anti-oxidants to protect against free radicals, damages from the sun and also helps skin maintain its elasticity and soothes inflammation.

"You have such a lovely and awesome place and products!
Thanks for the introduction and I'll certainly be coming by again!"
"I visited Chiang Mai a few years ago and bought some of your wonderful mosquito repellant while I was there at a hotel. Many thanks for your help and your great business of helping people stay healthy!"
"You have made my day, your products are the best thing since sliced bread, and I miss my skin!!!"
"I have not had the chance to tell you how much I love all of your products I purchased while there. My mom loves the eye serum and the face cream. My good friend has been making her own deodorant for years and a week after I gave her yours she asked me where can she buy it! Also, love the healing spray ... I could go on and on. You are the talk of the town over here!"
"I have fallen in love with your mosquito repellent ZanZare Aqua sensitive and my housekeeper is enamoured with the Peppermint floor wash (Pest Control) and EVERYONE loves the herbal sprays #1 and #2 and I can't wait until my next trip to Chiang Mai, so I would like to order please :-)"
"I stopped by Sabu-Sabu in January and bought a tube of psoriasis cream from you. You may recall that I was a bit skeptical, but turns out that it seemed to work quite well. Is it possible to order a bunch of tubes and ship to me in Paris? "
"Really enjoyed the products! It is a wonderful experience and nice feeling when using them knowing that they are natural and organic. And the wonderful fragrance too, so different from those chemically-laden products. Our gratitude to you for these amazing products!"
One fortunate thing about living in Chiang Mai is the availability of Sabu Sabu products....swiftly hand delivered the same day I order! Great service and superior products.
I recently I ordered the new Organic Eye and Organic Argan Face Cremes which have helped to nourish and plump my overly dry skin.
The cleaning products are equally as good for all surfaces of our home. Friends always know which door is ours....they follow the scent of the mint floor cleaner and just know they've arrived! I've discarded all the other chemical products we were using in favor of all the home products Sabu Sabu offers.
Thank you Sabu Sabu for being a part of our daily life!
