Kissez of Nature-Luffa

Luffa also spelled Loofah, is a plant that is relative to the cucumber that produces large gourds that are fiberous internally. These fibers are dried and treated and is what becomes a luffa scrubber.

Luffa facts:

  • Luffa is grown on vines.
  • Luffa is a grown in the tropical and subtropical regions.
  • When some species of luffa is about six inches long it can be eaten like a vegetable.
  • Luffa seeds are sometimes pressed for the oil to cook with.
  • When it is mature that’s when the spongy, fibrous material is formed.

Body benefits:

With gentle circular movement the luffa aids in removing the dry, dead skin & helps with circulation which improves the look of your skin. It also sweeps away where bacteria and soil can collect.

It is important that you care for your loofah. Since this is an organic product, if this item is not cared for properly you can cause issues that may be harmful to yourself. Rinse your loofah after every use. Dry your loofah completely after every use. Sanitize your loofah at least once a week. You can place your loofah in a clean microwaveble bowl in some water and microwave for a few minutes to kill bacteria. You should replace your loofah at least every 3-4 weeks.

Exfoliating at least once a week is recommended to prevent over sloughing of the skin.
