What's a sea sponge?
It is actually a marine organism classified as a multicellular organism. These marine sponges are skeletons of marine animals called Porifera.
Unlike synthetic sponges from the oil industry, sea sponges are 100% natural, sustainable and biodegradable.
Unlike plants, they do not use the sun to get nutrients, but rather to pump water through the complex network of holes in their shape and extract nutrients from their environment. This gives the sponges their characteristic porous appearance and makes them very absorbent.
The ones we offer are harvested only in the Aegean Sea, reasoned by family fisheries in Greece. The fishermen bring great care to the preservation of the ecosystem of sponge banks. Thus, crops are made only twice a year. They are treated naturally, the color lights up because of the soda bicarbonate that is used to clean them. This method is ancestral.
Sponges have the amazing capacity of constantly renewing ; you can take part of a sponge without damaging the whole and it quickly pushes itself to replace the part that was taken.
Harvesting sea sponges helps them to live longer, promoting regeneration and self-renewal. Thus, marine sponges are a renewable natural resource and an excellent choice to preserve our environment.
The quality of the natural sponge depends on its origin. In the Mediterranean, sponges grow slowly in fairly cold and deep waters; So their fibers become resistant and elastic, which increases their shelf life. Conversely, Caribbean sponges, growing rapidly in shallow and warm waters, weaken faster.

How to clean, maintain and maintain a sea sponge?
Once used, carefully rinse your natural sponge with clear water. Press it and dry it naturally by maintaining sufficient ventilation. If possible outside the shower or in the washbasin corner, it will help to keep it in the best conditions as long as possible. It is also important to clean it regularly to avoid the accumulation of bacteria. Regularly (about 1 times a week), dip your sponge in a mixture of hot water and baking soda for 15 minutes: a bowl of water for a soup spoon of baking soda. If you have a large sponge, you can increase the quantities. Soda bicarbonate then cleans the sponge, restores its cellular structure and increases its durability. If your water is very limestone, take a bath with a mixture of vinegar and cold water for a few hours. You can suspend it in a net bag to make sure it dries well. Cleaning your sponge can help it last years!
