Natural Intimacy Sea Sponges- Silky Soft and Wonderfully Absorbent

Natural Intimacy Sea Sponges are a silky soft premium product unlike any other. A jewel of nature that was identified in ancient times for its astonishing absorbency, sea sponges have resurfaced as a natural skincare product for even the most delicate skin, as a reusable alternative to synthetic feminine products and to be used for play and cleansing during baby bath time.  

Each sponge is carefully hand selected for optimum absorbency, density, size and quality from the Mediterranean sea. The harvesting process does not harm the environment and every sponge can be used for many months before being composted at the end of its cycle. Natural Intimacy sponges are 100% natural and contain no synthetic fibers, pesticides or chlorine. Our Intimate Sponges the softest kind, Mediterranean Silk, so they are super comfortable, cannot be felt internally and are easy to remove. Just wet, twist and insert!

Intimate sea sponges get their astonishing absorbency from millions of naturally occurring pores and canals. Sponges are durable, naturally mold and fungus resistant, and can be reused for months. Packaged either in a tough, natural hemp drawstring bag (100% plastic free packaging!) or in a round cardboard tube with a sturdy blue cotton bag that camouflages stains. Choose your ideal sponge set!

Sizing varies as these soft sponges are a natural product, but generally fall under these two size ranges:
Large Natural Intimacy sponges: 6.5cm - 8 cm (2.5inches - 3inches)
Medium Natural Intimacy sponges: 5cm-7cm (2inches - 2.7inches)

There are endless uses for Intimate Sea Sponges. Because of their astonishing ability to absorb a large amount of liquid, women often choose to use them as a healthy, natural tampon replacement. When used in this way, they are moistened, twisted and inserted vaginally, and usually left in place for about 6 hours or until they are full and need to be rinsed out and reinserted. A few bags of sponges can be used to replace thousands of synthetic disposable tampons - and what’s more, sponges can be composted after they are worn out. A zero-waste solution! 

They have also been used for mess free sex during a woman’s period, to keep vaginal ovules in place, soaked in probiotic yogurt to help with yeast infections, and even inserted to make a prolapse more comfortable.

However, sponges are not just for intimate use! They work wonders to cleanse and gently exfoliate skin, remove makeup if moistened or used with coconut oil, and are so gentle that they can safely be used during baby bath time. Once you start using Natural Intimacy Sponges, you'll wonder how you ever lived without them!

Because sea sponges are grown by mother nature, they vary is size, shape, texture and colour. This is totally normal!

The health conscious consumer will also be happy to know that Natural Intimacy brand sponges are harvested with the utmost respect for marine biology. Sponges are a naturally renewable resource that is strengthened by the harvesting process.

Much like tree benefits from the pruning process, sponge life is extended by the very act of pruning. If left unharvested, the life of a sponge is about 10 years before it's roots begin to die. However, when trained divers remove the sponge from the sea but still leave the roots in place, the sponges can regenerate and the life cycle is much longer.

Sponges also are able to reproduce in greater numbers as a result of the harvesting process. When sponges are ethically harvested, millions of reproductive cells are released into the water, allowing many new sponge lives to be created.

How Should I Clean My Natural Intimacy Sea Sponge?

If The best method of cleaning will vary depending on how you use your sponge. Choose a method that works best for you. Do not use harsh soaps or chemicals that can harm the delicate fibers of the sponge.

Clean

Add a bit of hand soap (the more natural the better) to your sponge and run under warm water, agitating the sponge to remove any debris.

Squeaky Clean:

Soak your sponge for 10 minutes in a cup of 1:10 water-vinegar mixture. You can add a few drops of tea tree oil for extra bacteria killing power.

Deep Clean:

Soak your sponge for 10 minutes in a cup of water with 1 tbsp baking soda. This will rejuvenate your sponge to restore density and maintain durability. You can also soak it in a solution of warm water and hydrogen peroxide for 1-2 hours.  This removes all discoloration, naturally whitening the sponge to look fresh and brand new.

After Cleaning:

Leave to air dry! This is best done when hung up in a mesh bag away from countertops.  

Note: Never use bleach, boil your sponge or microwave your sponge. Treat your sponge with care and it will care for you.

What Exactly Is A Sea Sponge?

Sponges are the most basic multicellular organism. They are full of natural pores and canals to filter seawater which means they are super-absorbant. Because sea sponges are grown by mother nature, they vary is size, shape, texture and colour. This is totally normal!

Is Using A Sponge Earth-Friendly?

Not all sponges are harvested in an earth-friendly manner, so you have to make sure your sponge is ethically sourced. Our Intimate sea sponges are harvested by divers specifically trained to ethically remove only the top part of the sponges from the seabed. And no, the part of the sponge used is not alive anymore! 

Much like pruning a tree, when our Intimate Sea Sponges are harvested, its roots are left in place, enabling the sponge to grow and expand even more than if it would not have been trimmed. Additionally, when a piece of sea sponge is removed, millions of sperm and egg cells are released into the water, allowing the fertilization process to begin and new sponges to grow. So, the act of harvesting itself is actually beneficial to marine life!

Why Are Natural Intimacy Sponges Better Than Other Sponges?

Synthetic sponges (also known as dry sponges or disposable sponges) are plastic-based and made from polyurethane (a petroleum-based ingredient), bleach, assorted sulphates, chemicals, dyes, and other synthetic foam materials. In short, they are a chemical cocktail! As an environmentally conscious person, you would never even consider using anything with those ingredients in or around your delicate intimate areas! Natural Intimacy sponges are 100% natural - so you can be kind to your body and the earth. 

Mediterranean sea sponges are also softer, silkier, and more absorbent than Atlantic and Caribbean sea sponges that are on the market. What’s more - each of our sponges is meticulously examined by hand to meet our stringent quality standards before lovingly being hand packaged. We believe that you deserve the very best sponges in the world, and this is how we ensure you receive them!

What Is The Difference Between Bleached and Unbleached Intimate Sea Sponges?

Most of our customers prefer unbleached sponges, simply because they are the most natural sponge possible. Unbleached sponges also tend to last a bit longer because the fibers are left untouched.

However, some women prefer the lighter yellow bleached sponges. These sponges go through a light chemical bleaching process, which is completed with a baking soda bath. All chemicals then become inert. This results in a more delicate and bright sponge.

Is It Possible My Sponge Will Have Little Bits Of Sand Or Sea Minerals In It?

Our Intimate Sponges are thoroughly washed and hand selected for premium quality, shape, and texture. But just like farm fresh veggies will often have a bit of dirt on them, it is possible that your sponge could have a bit of sea debris still imbedded into it. It's natural!

We always recommend a thorough cleaning prior to using your sponge for the first time. Scroll down for cleaning instructions.

How Do I insert My Sponge Vaginally?

When you receive your sponge it will be very hard and almost rock like, and look quite big! But a quick rinse under warm water will cause it to expand and become spongy, soft and fluffy. Squeeze out excess water and your sponge is ready for use! Remember that sponges come from the seabed so before first time use it’s recommended that you thoroughly wash and inspect your sponge to remove any sea minerals. 

When the sponge is soft, you will easily be able to twist it into a cylindrical shape, similar to a tampon. Just press the sponge into the opening of the vaginal canal, and it will gently expand for a secure fit. You can then use your fingers to push the sponge further into your vaginal canal until it feels totally comfortable. 

How Do I Remove My Intimate Sea Sponge?

Most women find that their sponges, especially when they are heavy with menstrual blood, drop low enough in the vaginal canal to be easily removed. If you are worried about fishing the sponge out of your vagina, a piece of unflavored dental floss can be sewn through the sponge to create a tampon-like string for easy removal.

Don't worry, there is no way that your sponge could get "lost" in your vaginal canal. There is nowhere for it to go! Need help to reach your sponge? Just breathe deeply, relax, squat down and push your Kegel muscles. If this doesn’t work, lie in a warm bath and try a very gentle douche to fill the sponge with water, which will make it heavy and travel back downward. Viola!

Can I Use A Natural Intimacy Sponge To Clean My Vagina?

Definitely. The vagina is mostly self-cleaning, so the use of soaps and special cleansers is not recommended. A gentle wash under the shower with an Intimate Sea Sponge will leave you feeling refreshed and renewed.

Can I Have Sex With My Sponge In?

Many women want to enjoy sex during their periods but don't want to be bothered with the presence of blood. An Intimate Sea Sponge can be inserted before sex to absorb the menstrual blood, and because sponges are super soft, both partners find this solution to be totally comfortable and unnoticeable.

How Do I Choose My Size? What Can I Do If My Sponge Feels Too Big?

Intimate Sponges come in Large (6.5cm-7.5cm) and Medium (4cm-6cm) sizes. Take note, even our Medium sponges are larger than many other sponges marketed as large! The larger the size, the more absorbent your sponge will be. Choose an Intimate Sea Sponge that best fits your needs.

If your sponge feels too big, you can easily trim it for a custom fit with clean scissors. You can even cut a sponge into two! For the smoothest results, always cut your sponge when it is damp, and not when it is dry and hard. Start by trimming a small amount, you can always trim more later!
If your flow is very heavy, or you are using sponges for prolapse you can insert two large sponges at the same time.

What If I Have To Change My Sponge In A Public Bathroom?

It happens, you’ve got a heavy flow and your sponge has filled up faster than you expected. Here’s the answer to changing your sponge whilst at work or when you’re not close to a (private) sink. 

Solution: The Plastic Baggie + Backup Sponge + Water Bottle Combo

It’s always a good idea to carry two sponges, which is why our Natural Intimacy sponges are sold in sets of 2 or 3. Simply remove your full sponge and seal it in a plastic bag or wet bag. It won’t leak in your handbag and you can wash it properly when you get home. Then wet your fresh sponge, twist out excess water above the toilet and insert. 

Emergency solution: If You Only Have A Water Bottle

Don’t have a plastic bag or fresh sponge with you? All you need to clean your sponge enough to reinsert and be good to go is a bottle of water in your handbag. Remove the sponge over the toilet and rinse with water from the bottle until the blood is washed out. Twist out excess water, reinsert, then use any remaining water to rinse your hands and dry off with tissue paper.
