The Loofah is a vegetable sponge extracted from a gourd
that is harvested in the Mediterranean and Southeast Asian Countries.
It is used in its natural form,
simply by cutting apart the fibrous network of the Loofah,
and then deriving 4 -5 sponges depending on its size.
A handle can also be applied to get a brush for washing the back.
From this fruit bath accessories and instruments for
back scrubbing are manufactured. With one side in fabric
and one in Loofah, so as to have a rougher side and
a softer side for the more delicate areas of the body.
For an intense body ‘scrub’, the Loofah is used wet and soapy for massaging and the stimulation of the circulation. Its action can also be used to prevent the formation of unappealing accumulations of keratin arising from use of depilatory waxing
The Sisal is a Mexican plant fibre
that is obtained from agave and is handmade.
Sisal products are used wet and soapy for a deep massage and for invigorating the body.
