Discrubbables® Expanding Biodisposable™ Skin Loofahs

Loofahs are Great for Beauty

People have used loofahs for bathing for thousands of years and they are still used today in either plastic or natural forms. Loofahs are a beloved beauty tool because they exfoliate your skin. This involves removing dead cells clogging and dulling the top layer of the skin. Using a loofah not only scrubs-off this skin layer, loofahs also remove micro-debris within pores that cleansers cannot reach.

Through exfoliation, new skin cells are uncovered; instantly resulting in a fresher, healthier appearance.

Sorry to Tell You, But Normal Loofahs are Bacteria Farms

Recent studies1,2 have shown traditional loofahs are perfect environments for bacteria growth and can actually cause skin infections. The infections are caused by actually forcing bacteria into the skin.

Loofahs are usually used to scrub the skin in the shower or bathtub. Scrubbing causes “microtraumas” to the skin. After being used, loofahs are hung in the shower or bath. These locations are damp and kept at room temperature. Bacteria and fungus grow rapidly in this environment as it feeds on the dead skin cells. When the microbe-filled loofahs are reused, the bacteria and fungus is forced into the skin microtraumas and can cause infections.
