The raw materials
Our natural loofah scrubs are made with the vegetable, ridge gourd. A vegetable in the pumpkin family that grows in central India. To easily hang the loofah up in the shower, we have added a piece of jute thread.
Our partner takes the local ridge gourds that for various reasons are not edible and turns them into loofahs by drying them under the sun, peeling them, and cleaning them. Our partner runs a small facility that providers work opportunities to people in the surrounding areas.
User guide and 5 reasons to switch to Natural Loofah
It's important to clean your loofah after use. The shower environment which is often humid can result in the growth of bacteria. Here are a few steps you can take to avoid these bacteria:
Let it dry: hang up your loofah to dry after use, ventilate your shower area, and allow enough airflow for the loofah to dry properly.
Replace on time: ideally, when used with care, natural loofah lasts for a long time, but it's recommended to replace it after about 6 months or when it starts smelling or changes color. The loofah can then be fully composted.
