IntimateCare Sea Sponges
Your search for sensationally soft, highly durable, and magically absorbent natural sea sponges stops here. IntimateCare sea sponges, by Natural Intimacy.
These sponges are ethically harvested from the Mediterranean sea and hand inspected by our team to ensure pristine condition and consistent high quality.
Harvesting these natural sponges is an important and delicate process. If a sponge is removed without careful planning, it disturbs the marine ecosystem. All Natural Intimacy brand IntimateCare sea sponges are ethically harvested.
What is ethical harvesting? It is a gentle process where sponges are removed from their source without touching the roots. Similar to pruning a tree, this allows stronger and bigger branches of sea sponge to regrow. The gentle harvesting process also causes millions of sponges cells to be released into the waters, where they are fertilized, attach to sea rocks, and grow into new sponges.
Plastic is the number one disrupter of marine biology, and possibly the number one pollutant in the entire world. Because the sea gifted us with these beautiful sponges, we consider it our duty to show respect in return by minimizing plastic in our production. IntimateCare sponges the first Natural Intimacy product to be 100% plastic-free.
Each sponge is wrapped in paper, then packed in a reusable hemp bag. Even the tag on the bag and the string we use to tie the bag closed is carefully chosen and free of plastic.
IntimateCare sea sponges are durable and long-lasting. With proper care, they should retain their density for several months of use. When your sponge begins to show signs of wear, compost or dispose of it with other organic waste.
We do our best to diligently inspect each and every IntimateCare sponge, but because these sponges grow in the sea with other marine life, they might contain traces of typical sea residue. Don't worry, it's natural.
