  • Hand made in Egypt from 10cm x 10cm layers of loofah stitched together for extra scrubbing power with a cotton string loop. 
  • Fits neatly in the hand. Ideal for cleaning work surfaces, chopping boards, baths, sinks, tiles & taps.
  • Flattened for transport to save space and may appear abrasive in this dry state. When immersed in water it will swell up and become a spongy, flexible yet robust pad that will not scratch. 
  • Use with warm water and cleaning product. 
  • To keep loofah fresh between uses, rinse & squeeze out excess water and hang to dry from the cotton string loop. 
  • Occasionally wash in the washing machine or by hand if desired.
  • Will last for months with normal use and at the end of its natural life can be composted.




Ethical 

  • Traditional: Inspired by cleaning methods that have been tried and tested over generations. 
  • Preserves skills: Helps preserve traditional skills for the future 
  • Hand-made: Skilfully hand crafted in Sri Lanka and Egypt by small producers 
  • Fairly traded: Farmers and production workers are treated fairly with wages and benefits higher than normal rates. No children are employed. 
  • Employment: Provides valuable employment in rural areas. 
  • Vegan: Some coconut producers use monkeys to aid with the coconut harvest. LoofCo coconuts are not harvested in this way and as such are registered with the vegan society 

Environmentally Friendly 

  • Renewable raw materials: Coconut and Loofah are fast growing, plant-based resources that absorb CO2 when growing. 
  • Sustainable farming practices: Farmed to the highest environmental standards with respect for the environment. 
  • Plastic Free: Replaces mass produced non-biodegradable plastic washing-up brushes and pads that end up in landfill or are burnt. 
  • Biodegradable and Recyclable: Loofah and Coconut is 100% biodegradable and can be composted. The metal component of the brushes and cardboard packaging are recyclable.

Effective 

  • Work well: effective for washing-up and cleaning needs 
  • Durable: They will last for months which makes them excellent value for money 
  • Great for Skin: Body Loofah is a brilliant at cleaning, exfoliating the skin in the bath and shower


The Loofah

  • The loofah is a vigorously growing vine from the same family as a cucumber. In fact, the loofah fruit looks like a large cucumber. Each vine produces between 5-25 fruits per crop (average 15)
  • When ripe, the inside of the loofah fruit develops a network of fibres that are perfect for cleaning and exfoliating purposes when dried. 
  • LoofCo loofahs are grown in Egypt and our products are made from a variety that is rich in fibres, durable yet soft and flexible. 
  • To get the best texture, the loofahs are carefully harvested, peeled, cleaned of seeds and dried. (Some seeds may be impossible to remove). 
  • The dried loofahs are cut into lengths and processed by hand to create a long lasting, yet biodegradable plastic-free range of washing-up, cleaning and body products. 
  • This natural tradition that has been passed down through the generations.

Loofco Production Standards 

  • Loofah is a sustainable 100% natural plant based resource that is biodegradable.
  • Loofco loofahs are grown in Egypt & this supports traditional loofah farmers. 
  • Loofco loofah products are also made in Egypt. Both the farm hands and production workers are treated fairly, their wages higher than normal rates with medical insurance. No children are employed. Special needs workers make up a % of the work force 
  • Loofahs may have a mild vegetation smell ( like hay) that is entirely natural and will disappear with use. 
  • Loofah products are made to precise specifications and standards. Variations in size may occur as it is a natural product 
  • String is 100% Egyptian cotton.
