Combining Your KOHA Products
We’d like to think that if you’re a fan of one KOHA Beauty product, you’re probably a fan of a few more too. Over the past year we’ve worked incredibly hard at expanding our range, from four KOHA konjac sponges, to launching bamboo toothbrushes, KOHA Kids and, of course, our new range of artisan soaps. We’re delighted to tell you that the new launches don’t stop there, and there’s some more exciting news coming soon, but in the meantime, we wanted to share some top tips on getting the most from your KOHA products.
The beauty of our konjac sponges is that you don’t need to use them with a separate soap or cleanser – but that if you want to, you absolutely can. So, we’re going to talk you through the most effective way to combine your chosen konjac sponge and your favourite KOHA soap, to create a cleansing and exfoliating regime that you can enjoy daily, and achieve beautifully soft and glowing skin, whatever your skin type.
To combine the two, we recommend soaking your sponge in warm water for two minutes, until it’s ready for use, and at the same time, applying water to your face and massaging in your chosen soap bar. Once you’ve applied the soap, you can use your sponge to gently buff the skin, rinse off the soap and generally provide a deep-cleansing experience that’s 100% natural.
If you have… Oily Skin
If you have oily skin, worry no more. Combining our Bamboo Charcoal-infused konjac sponge with our Green Clay, Dead Sea Mud & Eucalyptus soap will help to deeply cleanse whilst gently buffing, plus their unique properties will help to rebalance your complexion and naturally mattify the skin, allowing you to keep oiliness under control. The domed shape of the sponge will allow you to work it into areas that gather grease, such as around the nose, helping you to eradicate the excess, and enjoy a naturally glowing complexion without the shine.
If you have… Dry Skin
Dry skin needs excellent care to keep it looking and feeling its best, so we suggest a gentle combination of our products to keep it smooth and soft, without exacerbating the dryness. Our Pure White flat konjac sponge is perfect for buffing dry, flaky skin, and as it’s 100% pure konjac root, it’s especially gentle. We recommend using it with our enriched Shea Butter soap, which is a skin superfood! It’s deeply moisturising and the kaolin clay helps to nourish the skin whilst you cleanse.
If you have… Acne-Prone or Congested Skin
If your complexion is prone to flare-ups of blemishes or blackheads, you’re not alone. It’s estimated that 20% of adults experience adult acne, but it can be kept at bay by using natural products. We recommend the domed Bamboo Charcoal konjac sponge again, which can be gently used around problem areas to loosen blocked pores and calm angry blemishes – but double up and use it in conjunction with the Activated Charcoal, Tea Tree & Lemongrass soap for ultimate spot-fighting power. The Activated Charcoal and Bentonite clay within this soap are super detoxifiers, working to deeply cleanse and purify, for fresh, smooth and clear skin.
If you have… Normal Skin
Lucky you! But even ‘normal’ skin needs maintenance in order to keep it in check. We think that you’ll love switching between our flat Pure White and Bamboo Charcoal konjac sponges depending on your skin’s needs, as some times you may be oilier or dryer. But a staple throughout should be the Lemon, Poppy Seed & Turmeric soap, which is a great all-rounder for non-problematic skin. The turmeric is an anti-inflammatory, to keep skin calm, the lemon is a great refreshing cleanser and the poppy seeds act as a gentle exfoliant, to keep skin looking glowing, clear and smooth.
If you have… Combination Skin
Combination skin doesn’t need to be tricky to care for. It’s just about using the right products to cater for your skin’s varying needs, to make sure that you’re caring for the dry bits without over-hydrating the oily bits and vice versa. We recommend using our flat Bamboo Charcoal sponge to handle any blemish- or oil-prone areas, whilst gently exfoliating the dryer areas. We think you should invest in our Sailor’s Bar, packed with deeply cleansing rhassoul clay. Rhassoul clay is combo skin’s dream; clinical tests have shown that it has the ability to reduce blackheads and blemishes, but at the same time, reduce the dryness of skin. It’s a win-win!
If you have… Sensitive Skin
Sensitive skin needs a delicate hand; if you’re prone to redness, irritation, patches of tightness or dryness, you need to be careful with the products you use. We recommend our domed Pure White konjac sponge, for a cleansing experience that will also exfoliate in a way that’s kind to easily-aggravated complexions. Along with this, we think you should bring our Pink Clay, Rose Geranium and Sweet Orange soap into your regime; it’s incredibly soothing and gentle to even the most delicate of skin, and the active ingredients help to ease any areas of tightness, as the French pink clay and rose geranium oils improve skin elasticity and help to nourish and moisturise skin in a really gentle yet luxurious way.
