Each and every loofah is unique and different in size and shape - that's the beauty of nature! Our loofah are not flattened for postage and will arrive to you light and puffy, they will puff up even more once they are wet.

Loofah Care Instructions

  • Remove packaging, you can use the marine grade rope as a handle or compost.
  • Initial use: Rinse the loofah under warm or hot water and it will puff up and soften - The loofah will soften after every use.
  • In between uses: rinse and allow to dry - This is important to prevent moulding and fibre breakdown
  • Discard and replace: Once the fibres start to break apart or if you see any black mould on the loofah.

Body Care Instructions

  • External use only
  • For sensitive skin: test on a small patch of skin first before using on whole body
  • Not recommended for use on face. 

 

Where do loofahs come from? Grown on a vine (not in the ocean as many people believe), the fibres are formed as the loofah fruit dries off, we carefully clean the loofah using just water (with no bleaches or chemicals) and hang to dry out in the Nelson sun. These are their natural colour. If you'd like to find our more about how loofahs are grown click here for The Loofah Patch
