Q: We get this question a lot "Is this the real Salux cloth?"
A: Yes these are the original authentic Salux cloths made in Tokyo, Japan. It has been said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Ok, we are very flattered and very frustrated.  This cloth started gaining popularity, followed by copycats several years ago. The copycat cloths, aka knockoffs, range from very bad to horrible, sorry nothing in between. They have copied the packaging, counterfeited the tags, and are using the Salux EAN barcode. 99% of these cloths are made in and shipped from China via Alibaba aka Aliexpress (the Amazon of China).

 We have been asked to post pictures of the knockoffs so here are a few.

COLORS Salux does not make  orange, red, purple, lime green or stripes!



Both Amazon and eBay have sellers selling the real Salux. Unfortunately most sellers show a picture of the real Salux and ship the knockoffs. If you receive a fake you should return it, Amazon and eBay will give you your money back. 


For our friends in  Australia and the UK, these are knockoffs from eBay 

Here is one from Amazon

Q: How to use the Salux

A: This cloth is used with soap and water. Wet it and place your choice of soap, bar or liquid, in the center, massage it into a luxurious lather. It can also be used dry for dry brushing.

Stretch it across your neck and upper shoulders and shoe shine down your spine, all the way to your tailbone. Now, reach behind and get that often missed spot called the small of your back. It's where the spine curves in at the level of the waist. Next, drape it over one shoulder diagonally down your back scrubbing again with a back and forth motion. Repeat over the other shoulder. You now have a clean back devoid of oil, dead skin cells & dirt that can block pores. 

Fold your cloth into a loose ball or square and begin washing your front.  With gentle, circular movements, work down the front of your neck, chest, and belly.  No need to rub hard  just let the cloth do its work. Wash your arms making sure you get the back side of your upper arms, continue washing the hips, buttocks and legs.

Concluding your shower with a good all-over scrubbing of your feet. Wrap your foot in a Salux cloth (I keep one just for this), wet or dry, and message the dry dead skin, dirt and bacteria away. Your feet will thank you.

Q: How to care for the Salux

A: Your Salux will rinse very clean with just water after each use. Unlike a washcloth or loofah, they will not harbor mold and bacteria. They can be put in the washer. DO NOT put in the dryer, they dry very fast just hanging.

Q: How long do they last

A: They are durable and will last a long time (that is if you can keep yourself from giving them to family and friends).  Some people use them for years and some replace them  every 6 months. You should notice a difference in the texture when you think it needs to be replaced .

Q: Can the Salux help control KP- keratosis pilaris
A:  Yes, using the Salux cloth to gently exfoliate and unclog pores will help manage KP. 

Q: Will the Salux cloth help prevent bacne 
Yes, bacne forms when pores become clogged. Exfoliating with a Salux will
 remove dead skin cells, oil and dirt that block pores. Exfoliating your back regularly will control bacne. If your skin is irritated do not scrub too hard at first, or you may increase the irritation. 

Q: Can they be used on the face
A: No, they are made for exfoliating the body not the face. Facial tissues are delicate and much different that your body tissue.  Salux in Japan says "Please do not use on the face."

Q: Is there a difference in the texture between the colors
A: There is no difference in the exfoliation texture in the colors or numbers. #100  #200 and #300 only refer to the color group. 100 is classics blue, yellow and pink- 200 is white and 300 is the pastel group green. peach and powder blue. All colors and numbers are the same Japanese normal (most popular) texture.

Q: What is the difference between the regular cloth and the Super Hard?

A: The Super Hard Salux has a thicker weave and is 4" longer. As with both cloths it is the amount of pressure used that determines the hardness. Basically, if you like the regular cloth you will love the supper Hard, It has more of a luxurious feel.
