The Loofah is a climbing plant mostly in oriental countries. It is the only plant known that can be raised and used as a sponge. It has been used for thousands of years for body care for its unique exfoliating properties. After maturation, the vegetable is cropped, cleaned and dried. Its fruits are cylindrical and during ripening the interior is transformed into a dense network of fibers. The popularity of the Egyptian loofah for personal hygiene products is due to the gentle exfoliating effect the fibers have on the skin. It deep cleanses and conditions your skin naturally.
