THE WORLDS NO.1 & ORIGINAL KONJAC SPONGE
Internationally trade marked, we are the original Konjac Sponge Company. The first to market, the one that created the category. Often copied, but never bettered!
We supplying premium grade Konjac Sponge products worldwide. Our sponges are the most effective Korean skincare tools, deeply cleansing and exfoliating even the most sensitive skin for a natural glow. Our Konjac sponges are made by hand in the volcanic hills of Jeju Island in South Korea. A UNESCO world heritage protected site. Jeju Island is renowned as a pristine area of outstanding beauty and reputed to have some of the purest water in the world.
THE ULTIMATE KOREAN BEAUTY TOOL
We are proud to carry the Leaping Bunny and Vegan Society symbols as signs of our commitment to producing natural, cruelty free skincare. All our sponges are made by hand and tested for authenticity and purity. Many inferior products are mass-produced in poor quality, unethical factories where they use low grade and contaminated materials.
Often copied but never bettered, copy brands do not have the technology, patents or know-how to create the high quality vegetable fibre sponge we offer.
Using the finest food grade Konjac, we only accept the purest products free from microbes or pollutants. We take our time, producing our Konjac Sponges by hand to develop a finer cell structure for even softer sponges with deeper exfoliation and cleansing properties. If a product doesn’t carry the Konjac Sponge Company trademark, then it is not a genuine Konjac Sponge Company product.
Michele Riley has a background in natural products, having started out in natural baby and child products. You will sometimes find details of Konjac Sponges that have come along since ours having "started out as baby sponges", and thats correct, as Michele launched the products for this purpose, but quickly discovered the benefits for all age categories and worked to have other ingredients with skincare benefits added. She has never looked back.
Michele is still the founder and the director of The Konjac Sponge Company. Her ethics have never changed, and she is supported by a strong team of creative, caring and ethically minded staff.
More recently, in 2019, Michele changed the company registered name from The Konjac Sponge Company Ltd to Niche and Cult Ltd. This was purely so that the company could better embrace the other brands that are now distributed by the company. Same company number, same people and same ethics, the only change was the name.
Our Trademark is official and fully registered. We are also registered with The Vegan Society and Cruelty International so can proudly carry the leaping bunny symbol and the Vegan Society logo on all our Konjac Sponge Co® products.
