These long, fibrous bath accessories come from a vegetable source and not a sea creature. The luffa plant, a relative of the cucumber, produces large gourds that are perfect for exfoliating the skin after drying the fruit. Gentle exfoliation supports healthy surface circulation and helps remove dirt and bacteria from the skin's surface. For best results, allow your loofa to dry thoroughly between use and replace frequently. Because this is a plant material, add it into your compost!
