What is Konjac? The Breakthrough Natural Ingredient Helping Sensitive Skin Sufferers

Queensland, Australia – WEBWIRE

QUEENSLAND, Australia October 2014 –The Konjac plant is native to certain parts of Asia, and has been used by the Japanese for medicinal purposes and as a food source for over 1500 years. Since Konjac has a very high fibre content with almost zero calories, it’s frequently consumed by weight watchers and used as an ingredient in weight loss pills.

Konjac is rich in vitamins (A, B1, B2, B6, B12, C, D, and E), protein, lipids, fatty acids, and natural minerals (copper, zinc, iron, and magnesium). Merging these natural ingredients with its gentle texture, Konjac is not only establishing itself as a healthy food, but also as a breakthrough skincare ingredient for sensitive skin. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, a gel prepared from Konjac flour has been consumed by the indigenous people of China for over 2,000 years to treat skin disorders, as well as asthma, coughs, hernias, breast pain, burns and haematological disorders.*

Konjac is being utilised in a whole range of ways; as medicine, food and now in the form of a sponge to combat sensitive skin disorders. My Eco Sponge is a revolutionary brand and product that encapsulates the benefits of Konjac in a sponge. Due to its remarkable ability to retain liquid, the surface of the sponge is always covered in water. As a result, the Konjac fibre barely comes in contact with the skin and doesn’t irritate the surface - even with hard scrubbing - making it uniquely compatible with different skin types across all age groups. The Konjac fibre is perfect for people who suffer frequent skin redness from allergies.

Before discovering the Konjac plant, My Eco Sponge director, Jen Hill frequently suffered chronic allergic reactions and skin redness from the food she ate and products she put on her skin. “The outbreaks, from autoimmune disease, meant I was constantly uncomfortable and in pain, so I began exploring other types of food and skincare options,” Jen says. “Through these explorations, I came across the Konjac plant. I started to source Konjac noodles first since I knew they were allergy-free, but ended up using it on my skin, until finally I found the Konjac sponge.”

After her health improved with Konjac noodles, Jen decided to make them available to everyone and created Jen’s Noodles, her first Konjac-related business. “I continued my research into the Konjac plant and soon discovered that Japanese women had been using the same ingredient on their skin for thousands of years,” Jen says.

“I started using Konjac on my skin as a non-toxic gentle cleansing solution, and within a few days the sponge left my skin feeling clean and refreshed with a natural glow and without any skin redness or irritations!”

The Konjac-based My Eco Sponge is gentle and soft like jelly, yet has a durable net-like structure that glides across the skin leaving a natural colloid film on the surface. It’s rich in minerals and protects, nourishes and cleans sensitive skin, and leaves the face silky smooth and glowing. My Eco Sponge also stimulates growth of the cells that helps produce
collagen, which aids the healing of burns, wounds and scars.**
