Description

These sponges are approx. 4"-5" Yellow Sea Sponge Cut is a perfect bath sponge. My Sea Sponges are Sustainably Harvest in Tarpon Springs Florida by local divers.

Because it is all natural, sea sponges come in various shapes/size and color, they all have special characteristic.
The sponge shown is not the actual sponge that you will receive, but they are similar in size and shape.

[ Care for your sponge ]
> DO NOT let you baby/kids tear / bite it, they are sea sponge killer!!!
> When sea sponge dry out, it is firm. Pls gently squeeze in water couple time, it will soft when it soak up of water.
> No bleach...ever! synthetic cleaner will shorten its life.
> Everytime you used it, let it air dry

While harvesting, divers carefully remove only the outermost portion of the sponge (similar to pruning trees) to help them regenerate.
Their natural reproductive cycles ensure that they often grow bigger and healthier had they not been trimmed. Studies have shown that areas in which sea sponges are harvested actually incur an increase in the sponge population.

In addition, tides and currents frequently pick up sponges as they spread to other locations.
The benefits of sea sponge aquaculture are realized as a source of income for developing countries’ populations due to its ease of establishment, minimum infrastructure requirements.

II. Hypo-Allergenic and Toxin-Free
While synthetic sponges are often made from petroleum by-products, and normally treated with toxic substances, organic sea sponges are actually filled with natural enzymes that inhibit the growth of mold, mildew, and bacteria, making them toxin-free and hypo-allergenic.
Synthetic sponges are treated with triclosan, an antimicrobial chemical to combat bacteria and mold. This common disinfectant is not only known to be harmful to the nervous system and hormone balance in our bodies, it can cause irritation to those with sensitive skin.
Organic sea sponges are not only self-cleaning through their own natural enzymes but through an intricate system of canals. Therefore, they wash out more quickly and easily, and will not retain objectionable odors.
Synthetic sponges, if not made from foamed plastic polymers (petroleum by-products) are sometimes made from cellulose wood fibers. These type sponges are also harsh on the skin, in addition to supporting the logging industry.

III. Sea Sponges are a Natural Exfoliator
A natural exfoliant, sea sponges help to reveal the freshest skin underneath the dead skin cells that are gently brushed away, keeping the pores free of impurities. Natural sea sponges are highly absorbent, create a luxurious lather, are softly textured, and are suitable for the most sensitive of skin.

IV. Sea Sponges are Safe for Babies
Experts agree that natural sea sponges are a safe alternative for washing infants and young children.
They are extremely gentle on babies tender skin, and their hypo-allergenic qualities and enzymes eliminate unwanted bacteria.
Bathing babies become easier as these sponges hold more water, and thus eliminate the need for a rinsing cup!

V. Quality and Durability of Natural Organic Sea Sponges 
Because they are resistant to abrasion, natural sea sponges are more durable and last longer (they’ve been known to last as long as 8 years)! 
But synthetic sponges, due to the buildup of mildew and bacteria, and susceptibility to abrasion, synthetic sponges will shrink and fall apart after a very short time.
Sea sponges are highly absorbent, create a luxurious lather, are softly textured, and are suitable for the most sensitive skin types. They soak up and hold more water  (two to three times that of a synthetic sponge) without dripping.
Enjoy your treasure from the sea!
