Loofah Sponge

Natural Loofah Sponges help to clean and exfoliate your skin, as well as stimulate blood circulation. Dry, they feel quite coarse but once introduced to water they soften , and have a softer scrubby texture.

Loofah sponges are also known as the ‘Sponge Gourd’ and the ‘Egyptian Cucumber’ and originate from India, where they still grow naturally. Once the fruit has matured the fibrous vascular tissue is harvested and dried to become a Loofah Sponge.

Rinse and squeeze out your Loofah Sponge after each use and allow to dry, either by hanging or storing on a free draining soap dish. We also recommend soaking it for 5 minutes in baking soda and warm water once a week.

ANOINT SKINCARE

Erica is the inspiring and very hard working Mama behind the Anoint Skincare business. Anoint are an artisan skincare company based in Kerikeri, in the beautiful Bay of Islands in the far North of New Zealand. Founded on the belief that nature knows best, we use all natural skin nourishing ingredients to hand craft their range.

Their packaging philosophy is unique and is either upcycled, recycled, reusable or recyclable. Rather than plastic, where ever possible they use glass, tin or cardboard.

Anoint originated on Waiheke Island in 2012 in an eclectic gallery called Upcycle formed by a co-operative of creative souls with a passion for upcyling and re-purposing unwanted and discarded objects.

The first batch of Lotion Bars were wrapped in an Odhams Encyclopedia for Children with a damaged spine bought for a $1 at the local car boot sale, and embellished with discarded ribbons from the local op shop and sold out in record time. After a few weeks of brainstorming for a brand name Anoint was born.
