like most plastics, the plastic shower loofah came to us in the industrial age. being made of plastic it is possible to scour the skin. add a hot shower where our pores open up; the loofah becomes the ideal transport for bacteria. out of the shower, in the cool air, our pores close; this traps harmful microbes beneath the surface.
additionally, plastic loofah’s are difficult to recycle, generally, they are made with single-use plastics.
luckily, there is an alternative to the plastic loofah: the soap saver bag. place your hygge soap in the bag and watch it do its magic.
