3 Differences About LOOFAHS You Can't Afford To Miss

Almost everyone has at least one loofah laying around in their bathroom. It can be either natural or synthetic. But what is the difference?

Natural Loofah

Natural loofahs are great body cleansing tools that suit all body types. It shouldn't be used on facial skin, and should always be wet when used.

It is the perfect tool to gently exfoliate your skin without going overboard. Unlike synthetic loofahs, they rub off the dead skin on your body to show the healthy skin underneath.

Since natural loofahs are made from plant fibers, they biodegrade very easily naturally, without any human interference.

They are also cultivated widely and require minimal to no synthetic materials or chemical processing.


Synthetic Loofah

Also known as the shower puff, is a body cleansing tool that shouldn't be used on facial skin.

Unlike natural loofahs, synthetic ones can be harsh on the skin due to its plastic material that doesn't get softer when wet. It can also cause micro tears in your skin.

The plastic material the loofah is made of can stay for thousands of years on earth without degrading, which harms animals and marine life.


How to maintain and take care your loofah?

Since they are used in a humid environment, you should take good care of your loofah and store it well to avoid bacterial growth on it, which can cause lots of skin problems.

Always store your loofah in a dry place away from water. It's best to dry it out in the sun after showering to make sure that it stays in a good condition for a long time.


It's always recommended to change your loofah every 6-8 weeks either it's a natural or a synthetic one and make sure to soak it in hot water every three washes to clean it up and get rid of the dead skin caught in the loofah.
