When wet, the sponge has a slightly gel-like texture as there is a film of water that is formed due to the water retention ability of the konjac plant. This “water film” is what prevents scratches and abrasions on your skin, acting as a barrier between the fibres of the sponge and your skin.
Konjac sponges are made from konjac, a porous root vegetable native to Asia. Glucomannan is a dietary fibre contained in the bulb of the konjac plant. Konjac cultivated in Japan contains glucomannan that solidifies into jelly and is made into the edible konjac, or konnyaku.
After every use, it is important to squeeze all the excess water out of your konjac sponge after every use, so it does not harbour any bacteria.
