Green Tea Tōhoku Konjac Sponge — 1 piece
*Please note the packaging misprint: This formula does not contain actual Hyaluronic Acid. We replaced this with Saccharide Isomerate, a longer lasting humectant as described above. It's a classic case of a packaging misprint, and rather than throwing away and wasting a ton of plastic, we decided to run with production and offer a discount on this slightly imperfect batch. We apologize for any confusion; feel free to contact us anytime for further clarification, as we believe in transparency first and foremost.

We recommend this Hand & Body Cleansing Concentrate for those who struggle with:
Acne on butt or back (use with Japanese Konjac Sponge - ours is clinically tested to be Alkaline)
Green Tea Tōhoku Konjac Sponge: Green Tea Powder, Konjac Fiber.
Made in Japan
*Please note this formula is a little different from the rest of our range. It contains a small percentage of Phenoxyethanol to stabilize and ensure the quality of the anti-odour properties for the hands and body; read more about why in our FAQ.
Lather onto wet skin and rinse. Use with the Tōhoku Konjac Sponge for further exfoliation and best results.
Recommended: Use after handling fragrant foods or meals, such as barbecues, onion, garlic, seafood or heavy spices. Great for after-gym, or after smoking.
Can I use this only for the hands? Yes, it works both as a body and hand wash. Is this safe for pregnant or breastfeeding women? No, due to the high concentration of Hinoki essential oils for odour minimization; we suggest using our Three-in-One Hair, Face & Body Bar for a gentler all-over cleanse instead.
Can I use this on my face? No, we do not recommend using this on the face as the odour-minimizing concentrate formula is meant for the thicker skin on the body and hands.
Why does this formula contain Phenoxyethanol? All other Snow Fox products do not contain Phenoxyethanol. In this case, however, our lab in Australia decided to add a very small amount of Phenoxyethanol to ensure the stability and efficacy of the formula's odour-minimizing properties. Handwashes (especially post-pandemic) must also have strong enough antibacterial, antifungal and anti-mold properties for effective hygiene.
Is Phenoxyethanol bad? Why do some "clean" brands have it and others don't? Different clean beauty retailers have their own definition of "clean". Here at Snow Fox, we specialize in sensitive skincare, so always avoid its use when possible to minimize the risk of skin irritation. However, as the formula is specifically stronger to target unwanted odours for the hands and body (not the face), our Australia-based lab felt it was necessary to ensure the product's stability and quality in this case.
Phenoxyethanol is not necessarily always "bad"; it's even naturally found in Green Tea (though most market sources are synthesized). Known as a gentle, safe and efficient antibacterial, anti-mold, and antifungal preservative - it is still widely accepted in some clean make up and skincare brands. The risk with Phenoxyethanol is that it can irritate sensitive skin when formulated poorly or at over 1% concentration. As with any ingredient, it simply needs to be formulated well to minimize risk of irritation. In this case, at less than 1% concentration, we do not consider it a high risk of irritation for the body or hands.
Can I use it on my hair and scalp? No, it is not formulated for hair or the scalp. We suggest our Shampoo & Conditioner Bars created specifically for haircare.
"I love the refreshing scent! It is very moisturizing and left a silky smooth touch on my skin. My skin feels even softer after applying lotion. I think the product still did a decent job in keeping my skin hydrated for a day if I don't use any lotion after taking a shower. It is a great product to try :)"
