What's a Sea Sponge?

The wondrous naturally occurring Intimate Sponges are a delicate and premium product unlike any other. A jewel of nature that was identified in ancient times for its astonishing absorbency, sea sponges have always been a treasured commodity used for cleaning, anointing oils, and bathing. There is even reference to sponges used as the first female tampon.

When moistened with water, they are soft and silky, with thousands of pores and canals that draw fluids inside. At the same time they are hardy and durable, with naturally occurring mold and fungus resistant enzymes, and can be used for months before showing any signs of wear and tear.

Good For You. Good For The Universe.

The sensitive mucous membranes of the intimate skin is by far the most important area to reduce toxic exposure. Replacing chemical laden feminine hygiene products with organically occurring Intimate Sponges is a simple act that has far reaching effects.

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 continues.

Sponges also are able to reproduce in greater numbers as a result of the harvesting process. When sponges are ethically harvested, millions of sperm and egg cells are released into the water, allowing the fertilization process to begin and new sponge life to be created.

Absorbency The Way Nature Intended

With anything that is intended to absorb fluid, the warm, wet conditions are a prime area for bacteria growth. Tampons are the classic offender; the synthetic materials that are intended to increase absorbency actually create a viscous surface on which the bacteria love to reproduce. This is one reason the risk of Toxic Shock is so high.

Typical synthetic sponges used for cleaning or bathing also harbor worrying amounts of bacteria. Manufacturers embed resurfacing chemicals in the synthetic compounds to in an attempt to halt the bacteria growth, but those same chemicals have been shown to harm the nervous and hormonal systems.

Naturally occurring enzymes in sea sponges stop bacteria from reproducing and inhibit the growth of mold. This makes them toxin free, and hypoallergenic. The serious of canals and pores create the prime conditions for maximum absorbency, yet also allows the fluid to be rinsed out more effectively. Along with the self-cleaning enzymes, this means that sea sponges are more likely to stay odor free and bacteria free, even after intimate use.

Bleached Vs. Unbleached

We offer two variations of Intimate Sponge: bleached and unbleached.

The bleaching process results in a brighter sponge to making cleaning easier, while the unbleached sponges retain 100% of their natural durability and absorbency.

Cleaning Your Sponge

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 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.

After Cleaning:

Leave to air dry!

What's a Sea Sponge?

Sponges are the most basic multicellular living organism. They have extremely porous bodies that absorb and filter water.

Is using an Intimate Sea Sponges 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 sponges from the sea surface. The act of harvesting itself is actually beneficial to marine life.

Much like pruning a tree, when our Intimate Sea Sponges are harvested, it's 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.

What is the difference between Intimates Sea Sponges and regular synthetic sponges?

Synthetic sponges are plastic-based and made from polyurethane (a petroleum-based ingredient), bleach, assorted sulfates, chemicals, dyes, and other synthetic foam materials. In short, they are a chemical cocktail!

As an environmentally conscious person, you'd never buy synthetic sponges if the ingredients were clearly listed. And of course, you'd never even consider using anything with those ingredients in or around you delicate vaginal mucous membranes.

How are Intimate Sea Sponges different than other sea sponges?

We've made the decision to only source our sponges from the MEDITERANIAN Sea, the undisputed location for the highest quality sea sponges. Mediteraian sea sponges are softer, silkier, and more absorbent than Atlantic and Carribean sea sponges. Our Intimate Sea Sponges selected for their premium quality, luxurious silky-ness and extraordinary absorbency.

What is the difference between Bleached and Unbleached Intimate Sea Sponges?

Most of our customers prefer to use unbleached sponges, simply because they are the most natural sponge possible. Unbleached sponges also tend to last a bit longer because the fibers are unmarred by bleaching efforts.

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.

Is it possible my sponge will have little bits of sand 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.

What are Intimate Sea Sponges typically used for?

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 natural tampon replacement. When used in this way, they are twisted and inserted vaginally, and usually left in place for about 6 hours until they need to be rinsed out and reinserted.

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

Once you start using Intimate Sponges, you'll wonder how you ever lived without them!

How do I insert my sponge vaginally?

When you receive your sponge it will be very hard and almost rock like, but a quick rinse under warm water will cause it to expand and become spongy, soft, and even fluffy.

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 due to the presence of menstrual blood or other fluids, sit 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!

Can I use an Intimate Sea Sponge to clean my vaginal area?

Definitely. The vagina is mostly self-cleaning, so the use of soaps and special cleansers is not recommended. A gentle wash 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 mensural blood, and because sponges are super soft, both partners find this solution to be totally comfortable and unnoticeable.

How do I choose a 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 Intiamte Sea Sponge that best fits your needs.

If your sponge feels too big, you can easily trim it with a clean scissor. 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.

How should I clean my Intimate 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.
