Loofah (or luffa) has been used for centuries. It's a marrow-like vegetable that is edible, and when it's fully mature the inside has a fibrous structure. To make a bath loofah, the outer skin of the vegetable is removed, the seed are removed and then the inside is rinsed and allowed to dry out leaving behind the spongy texture we're all familiar with.
Loofah's are traditionally used for smoothing and exfoliating the skin. To use, simply dampen the loofah with water then rub our natural goat's milk soap across the surface before gently rubbing over the skin while you take a bath or shower. We'd recommend that you use gentle circular strokes and try to avoid rubbing too hard or trying to exfoliate over areas or sore skin/eczema etc. This will remove any dead skin cells, so after rinsing the skin it should feel smoother and gently exfoliated.
Make sure that you rinse your loofah with water and allow it to dry out between uses - it comes with a hanging loop so it can be hung up to dry.
Our mini loofahs are pale cream in colour. They measure approximately 12cm in length, but will vary in size and diameter since this is a natural product. Each loofah has a cotton rope hanging loop. Our loofahs will sometimes arrive flat (it makes them easier to post out). Simply immerse in water and loofah will quickly absorb the water and return to it's normal rounded shape, and will be immediately ready for use.
