I've recently discovered a new brand that I'm pretty excited about. It's called SPONGE, and it's an all-natural product line that's free of parabens, sulfate, propylene glycol, petrochemicals, artificial dyes and synthetic fragrances. Each of their products are hand-blended with organic and wild-crafted herbs, and the packaging is quite slick. One of the highlights of the brand is their Krema Mattia Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream.

SPONGE hails from Greece, which is a much sought-after location for growing sustainable ingredients. The arid climate promotes unique water retention properties in the plants. Expect high levels of vitamins, antioxidants and minerals in the products; you can be ensured Krema Mattia Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream will work to the max.

You'll notice that olive oil is one of the top ingredients in the Kreme Mattia Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream. This is great as olive oil is a natural carrier for all the natural ingredients and helps absorb quickly. But the best part of the eye cream is the useful ingredients, especially Vitamin K, which is in the sage extract. As you know, Vitamin K is a great source for improving blood coagulation and circulation, and helps repair skin damage (eating foods with vitamin K is equally beneficial, like brocolli, carrots, cabbage and spinach!). Vitamin K is part of a great vitamin complex in the wrinkle cream that also includes A, C, and B. So not only does it soothe and firm, but it also hydrates and reduces the appearance of fine lines. Did I mention the grapeseed liposomes? This awesome antioxidant is also beneficial for targeting those free radicals.

As you would imagine, it absorbs nicely and smells pleasant. I'm looking forward to trying out their other products!

    Marta,

    Your turn-around speed at answering questions is staggering! Thank you so much for the clarification and that is an incredibly generous offer from Markos -- which I will happily take him up on.

    You're pretty damn cool as well, Marta!

    Hi again Angela,

    I heard back from Sponge and they confirmed that the formula was recently changed and no longer contains propylene glycol but the ingredients list wasn't changed on the website. I have now removed it from the list on Jimmy's post. Anyway, the lovely Markos at Sponge asked that you contact him with your address and he will send you a bottle of the eye cream. How cool is that!. You can contact him at info@spongeskincare.com

    Hi eagle-eyed Angela. Sponge says propylene glycol free in its product description on Dermstore.com and then, as you say, it is listed in the ingredients. Sponge's own website is not very informative, so I've written to ask for clarification.

    Hi Jimmy,

    Thanks for the review - it sounds like an interesting line.

    Could you please clarify something - you wrote that the products do not contain, among other things, propylene glycol, but the third ingredient listed is propylene glycol. Is that a typo?

    Thanks!
