Cosmetic grade Sponge Microneedles are a naturally derived ingredient from Sea Sponges (Phylum Porifera). Sea sponges are one of the world's simplest multi-cellular living organisms. Sea sponges are considered animals but they grow, reproduce and survive much as plants do. They have no central nervous system, digestive system, circulatory system, or organs.
The slender needles of the sponge range in size from 20-200um and can penetrate deep into the stratum corneum and epidermis. Sponge Microneedles activate the epidermis microcirculation and helps deliver active ingredients deep into the skin. Studies show as much as a 3000% increase in the penetration of actives into the target area with gentle circular motions.
Sponge Microneedles can help improve the penetration of active compounds that treat acne and help to clear pores and reduce pore size. It can also help with stubborn blackheads and help to control excess sebum.
