 Similar to our Sea Sponges from the Caribbean, but these sponges harvested from the Gulf of Mexico are naturally higher in quality, more durable, and longer lasting.

These natural and sustainable bath sponges are so luxurious! Perfect for lightly exfoliating skin, cleansing dirt, sweat, impurities, pollutants, and dead skin cells for fresh, glowing skin. Plus, they contain natural minerals which are beneficial for the skin. Sustainably harvested from the Gulf of Mexico, this variety is more durable, higher quality, and tends to last longer than Caribbean "grass" sponges. They are gentle enough to be used in the bath or shower daily, yet have the perfect amount of exfoliation.

Responsibly harvested and a naturally renewable resource, these sponges are hand-cut by divers to ensure that enough of the base remains intact so that the sponge can regrow. Studies show that areas harvested actually increase the population density of sponges. Sponges are biodegradable, and can be added to the compost once they've reached the end of their life-cycle.

Natural sea sponges are a renewable resource, and they are so much better for our environment than plastic poufs and bath accessories made from synthetic fibers. Not only do the plastic-derived products cause environmental pollution and consume a lot of natural resources to produce, but they have to be thrown away at the end of their lifecycle. Once in a landfill, they continue to break down and contribute to micro-plastic contamination in our soil, water sources, and oceans.

Since these sponges grow naturally in the sea, each sponge is unique in shape, size, and appearance. As you'll see in the photos, the sponges can vary quite a bit in appearance - no two are exactly the same!

Due to the popularity of our bath sea sponges, several size options are available. Measured at their widest point, the Extra-Large sponges are approximately 6-7 inches across, Large sponges approximately 5-6 inches, and Medium sized sponges approximately 4.5-5 inches. Heights can vary quite a bit from sponge to sponge, from approximately 2-6 inches. Please note that sponges are traditionally measured when wet, and expand in size once submerged in water.

These sponges are "cut" - meaning that they have been cut into their shape and size. For other options including less expensive Caribbean Grass Sponges, whole and uncut Premium Bath Sea Sponges, and Unbleached Premium Bath Sea Sponges, visit this section of our website.

If you're not sure which sponge is best for you, we've written this article outlining the benefits of and differences between all of the sponges in our line so that you can find the perfect sponge for you! You can access that blog article here.

Sponge care: Rinse completely after each use and air dry. Sponges have complex and delicate fibers, and must be handled with care. Never twist or pull the sponge, and do not rub too vigorously on the skin. Gently squeeze the sponge to remove any excess water or soap, never wring or twist water and soap out. Twisting, pulling, or vigorously using the sponge will cause damage and tear the fibers, which will make the sponge fall apart. After each use, allow sponge to dry completely. These sponges are durable and will last for many months with proper care. Once they have reached the end of their life cycle, they can be easily composted instead of ending up in the landfill like  synthetic alternatives.

Listing is for one sea bath sponge unless otherwise noted. Please note that sponges in photos are representative, and since each sponge naturally varies in color, shape, and size, the sponge that you receive will likely look different from the photos.
