The beeskin loofah sponges are vegan, natural and fully compostable. Luffa gourds are grown in warm climates. After blooming, the flowers grow into a plant that almost looks like a cucumber or zucchini. This is the time when these fruits are picked and left out to dry. This can take about 6 months.

Once the fruit has dried, it gets soaked in water for a while and peeled afterwards. The seeds are removed and the loofah needs to dry once more before being cut into pieces which will serve as sponges.

The texture of the sponges resembles a mesh. You will notice that you need less dishwashing soap since foam is easily made. Our loofahs are just hard enough to get rid out any food leftovers but also soft enough to protect non-stick pans, glasses & other items which scratch easily. So instead of using abrasive steel wool, grab your loofah next time you want to avoid scratches.

Of course you can also use your loofah for cleaning the bathroom. It is great for scrubbing tiles, cleaning showers or sinks and any other surfaces. Use our bamboo towels to dry off afterwards.

Loofah for soft and vibrant skin:

Another great way for using the beeskin loofah is for your skin care.

The loofah can be used to exfoliate the skin on body and to stimulate blood circulation while showering or taking a bath. A few points to keep in mind:

  • Don’t use more than twice a week for exfoliating.
  • Don’t use on freshly shaved skin.
  • Sensitive skin like on your face or any wounds should not be treated with the sponges.
  • Replace your sponge regularly. You can dispose of the loofah in the compost.

 

How to take care of your beeskin loofah sponge:

We recommend wringing out any moisture after usage, ideally with a dry towel and to hang it on the attached loop. The U.S. Cleveland Clinic recommends to replace your loofah every 3 to 4 weeks.  

You can wash your sponge at 60°C in the washing machine. A gentler but equally effective cleansing, especially for body sponges, is to soak the sponge in a mixture of warm water and baking soda. Simply combine 1 cup of water and 1 Tablespoon of baking soda and let the sponge soak for 15 minutes.

    FAQs

    How long will the beeskins last?

    We give you 1-Year guarantee on all of your beeskin beeswax wraps. get in touch with us if you have any problems: yes, I need help please.

    Are there foods I can't use beeskin for?

    For hygienic reasons you should not store raw fish and raw meat in beeskin. Place those into an extra bowl and cover the bowl instead. Pineapple has an enzyme which causes the coating to dissolve. Prolonged contact with very oily food may damage the wax and resin coating.

    How do I clean beeskin?

    Run your beeskin beeswax wrap under cold water only, and run your fingers over your wrap to remove any excess, as if rinsing a plate. Don’t wash or rub your wrap vigorously with a rough sponge or brush. You may use the soft side of a sponge, gently, and we recommend you use an eco-friendly dish soap with no “alcohol“ within the first 4 ingredients. Alcohol will dissolve the beeswax and tree resin. After having cleaned your beeskin, pat it dry with a kitchen towel or let it air-dry. Don’t set your beeskin beeswax on a radiator since your wrap is not particularly fond of heat.

    Can I use beeskin to freeze food?

    Your beeskin beeswax can definitely be put in the fridge and of course in the freezer compartment. Your food will be protected but can still breathe. We recommend you check on your food after 4 weeks to make sure it does not dry out. We like to freeze leftover pizza or half a cake in beeskin. Even bread slices are great to be frozen. Take them out and pace them directly into the toaster or oven.

    What happens after its lifetime?

    After its lifetime beeskin can be discarded on the compost. It will dissolve completely. Alternatively you can use beeskin as a natural and healthy fire starter for fireplace or barbecue.
