Did you know that sea sponges are actually animals, and not plants? They're a type of simple animal that has no central nervous system or organs. This means they don’t have eyes, ears or the ability to physically feel anything. However, they do have specialized cells that carry out different functions within their bodies.
The sponges are sustainably harvested in the Gulf of Mexico, the Florida Keys and the Caribbean. The divers leave a certain portion of the living base which helps the sponge grow back quickly, at about 2 inches per year. Biodegradable, they create much less waste than a synthetic sponge of the same size would.
Due to the nature of the product, these soaps range in weight from 3.8 oz to 4.2 oz.
How to care for your new sea sponge: squeezing out excess water and letting it air dry is the most important thing you can do to extend the life of your sponge.
If desired, every 6-12 months, you can freshen up your sponge with a weak bathing solution of either baking soda OR hydrogen peroxide and water.
Use 2 Tbsp baking soda to 16 oz water, OR 1 part hydrogen peroxide to 20 parts water. Leave sponge in solution for at least 2 hours and then rinse thoroughly and let dry.
