Loofah is a natural product and is harvested from the fruits of the Luffa plant. Luffa gourds are grown in tropical and subtropical climates. After the plant blooms, the flower develops into a long gourd that resembles a giant cucumber or zucchini. The gourds are then harvested and can be left to dry out for up to six months.Dried gourds are soaked in water, peeled, and their seeds are removed. Once they’re completely dry, they can be sliced, cut, or shaped in a variety of ways before they’re sold as sponges.Our Loofah Shower Pads are designed with an elastic band for a more ergonomic shower experience.
