What is a Spongilla powder, also known as a Badyaga powder?

Spongila powder, also known as a Badyaga powder is basically a dried and chopped freshwater sponge. Spongilla is found in lakes and slow streams.

“Sponges are composed of a soft tissue suspended in a jelly-like proteinaceous matrix supported by a hard skeleton composed of needle-like structures known as spicules. Spicules are primarily composed of calcium carbonate, or silica and collagen.” (source)

Dried and purified Spongilla powder can be used as a dermabrasive agent to help resurface the skin on the face or other parts of the body.

Upon massaging pure Spongilla powder into the skin, spicules penetrate the skin creating microscopical injuries to the epidermis. This will activate a wound healing response, which will activate an increased blood flow to the wound. Increased blood flow helps to dissolve spots, bruises, stimulating new cell growth, elastin, and collagen production thus improving skin tone and texture. In addition, spicules that penetrate the skin aid in the delivery of bioactive compounds to the dermis. Spicules also open the pores and prevent future formation of comedones.

Spongilla can be used to rejuvenate the skin, to remove old or dead cells from the skin’s outer layer without harming the young and living cells. It can be used as a natural treatment for acne scars. As a result, using Spongilla to resurface the skin results in smoother and softer skin.

Resurfacing the skin using Spongilla is very popular among the Russian population as a natural dermabrasion method. It’s because Spongilla is 100% natural and gentle enough on the skin not to cause burns or other  serios damage.
