Natural Sea Sponges
Natural sea sponges have been used to cleanse and exfoliate the skin for thousands of years. Soft, gentle, and luxurious, they are suitable for even the most sensitive skin, including babies.
As a result, natural sea sponges are perfect for a range of applications where gentle cleansing is the major factor, such as bathing and showering, removing cosmetics, and even wall painting.
Furthermore, although they are incredibly soft, they have superior abrasion resistance compared with many synthetic sponges, and therefore do not peel or disintegrate as quickly.

- Loofah – for use in the bath and shower
- Wool Sponges – perfect for baby and adult bathing as well as wall painting
- Grass sponges – for painting and decorating
- Silk sponges – ideal for cleansing and other cosmetic applications

What is a natural sea sponge?
A sea sponge is naturally occurring and can be found in temperate oceans around the world. It can be harvested without chemicals and, as it can replenish itself, it can be considered to be eco-friendly.
Due to their highly absorbent properties, they are ideal for a range of cleaning and cosmetic uses. Natural Seas Sponges are also hypoallergenic, making them ideal for people with sensitive skin.
Are your natural sea sponges responsibly sourced?
All of our natural sea sponges are harvested in the deepest waters of the Mediterranean and Caribbean by our own network of divers. As a result, we can be sure that we only ever supply the best quality sponges and that sponge stocks are not depleted, as when the roots of the sponge are left intact the sponges regenerate themselves.
What types of natural sea sponges do you supply?
We supply a wide range of sponges, each of which are suitable for specific uses. These include:
- Honeycomb sponges – the honeycomb sponge’s highly porous texture absorbs a high amount of water and creates a luxuriant lather, ideal for bathing
- Loofah – a more rigid sponge, the perfect natural exfoliator
- Wool sponges – highly absorbent and soft, but also incredibly durable
- Grass sponges – a cost effective natural sea sponge. Soft and gentle
- Silk sponges – silky smooth, with a fine texture and low absorbency
How long can natural sea sponges last?
With proper care and attention, natural sea sponges can last two years or more, which is much longer than many of their synthetic counterparts. This durability and long life also help to reduce waste, making them an excellent choice for the environment.
