What is a Loofah?

The loofah is a quick growing vine from the cucumber family that produces a fruit which contains durable, yet soft and flexible, fibres.

When ripe, the fruit develops a complex network of these fibres that are perfect for cleaning and exfoliating purposes when dried.

LoofCo loofahs are grown in Egypt, harvested, peeled, washed and left to dry in the sun before being made into various products.

Why a loofah?

When immersed in water, loofahs transform and expand into a spongy, flexible yet robust material.

This makes them perfect for household cleaning, while also proving to be a soft, gentle skin exfoliator for your personal care routine.

All about LoofCo

LoofCo's mission is to create an alternative to mass-produced plastic brushes, cleaning pads, exfoliators, scrapers and scrubbers.

That's why all LoofCo products are made from the naturally occurring plant fibres of the LOOFah plant and COconuts, hence the name LoofCo!

Skilfully hand-made in Sri Lanka and Egypt, the LoofCo range supports traditional working practices and provides valuable and ethical employment in rural areas.

LoofCo farming practices are sustainable and to the highest environmental standards. They take great care to ensure local farmers are treated fairly, with wages and benefits, such as medical insurance, that are higher than normal rates.
