What is the Loofah?
Loofah is a climbing vine vegetable that belongs to the same family as a cucumber. This is why it looks like a massive cucumber while growing. Loofah needs warm dry climates, and is sensitive to frost. The Thai loofah, a vegetable plant, dries quickly after use preventing bacterial build-up. It is superior to any other type of loofah having thick fibres and hardy texture. It is flat, but once soaked in water the fibres expand and become flexible, reasonably soft, and yet strong enough to clean the skin and feel comfortable. For best cleaning results we recommend soaking the loofah in water for 5 minutes then rubbing with your favorite soap before you scrub the skin.
The natural loofah plant used to make our products goes through different stages before it is put together. Firstly the loofah is cleaned from the inside. There are no rough edges or excess fibers. The inside of the loofah is totally cleaned so that the center of the Loofah is taken out and is even. Finally the Loofah is flattened. This is what makes our product different to all the other loofah products on the market. When the loofah is socked in water it expands but is still comfortable to use, as there are no excess fibers inside. We only use the best quality wet loofah in our products.
Did you know that Skin is the largest detox organ?
Skin is the largest organ of the human body. Usually nobody thinks of skin being an organ. Skin is very thin and it takes only a few moments, for some kind of liquid substance to be absorbed. Make a little experiment with garlic. You can rub it into your foot and wait. Very soon you can taste the garlic in your mouth. Here is the proof that skin easily absorbs anything. Therefore, it is so important that only natural products free of nasty chemicals go inside it. In modern days if you are not aware of nasty chemicals yourself with all sorts of toxins which are present in majority of soaps and creams.
For some unknown reason those products are widely advertised and available on shelves. When you realise the importance of what has been said in here, go and immediately find organic non-chemical based products so, our skin not only absorbs well, it is excretes toxins as well. Human body has an important ability to sweat, which is a natural body reaction to expel various sorts of toxins, including heavy metals. All people have different body odours, which also depend on the food we eat and the toxins we accumulated. So surely, it is important that we do routinely detoxify through our skin by exfoliating it with the loofah. It is important to remember that skin is an important organ and should be looked after. Apart from simply taking a shower, give it an extra care and it will help you with detox of other organs and systems in your body.
