What are the benefits of a PVA body sponge?

 

If you have ever owned a Ramer sponge, you will have noticed that it’s made from a magical material which is super soft when soaked in warm water but is rock solid when it dries. Have you ever wondered how this sorcery works?

 

We’ll let you in on a little secret. All of our sponge products are made using Ramerfoam® PVA sponge which comes with a whole host of benefits. Read on to discover what a PVA sponge is, why we use it in our manufacturing process at Ramer and the qualities you will benefit from.  

 

What is a PVA sponge?

 

Before we reveal the benefits of using a PVA sponge, first you need to understand what it is. A PVA sponge is a synthetic sponge essentially composed of Polyvinyl Alcohol. It’s an open-celled, highly absorbent, porous material that quickly soaks up water.

 

A dry PVA sponge can hold up to 12 times its weight in water. Technical markets such as medical, aerospace, and automotive sectors favour PVA sponge in laboratories and workshops as it is so versatile. For example, cell size can be varied depending on the required use. More water will be soaked up the finer the cell.  

 

Prior to 1946, the only available sponges were sea sponges, that is until Ramer came along. We were the first company in the world to create and market a commercially viable synthetic sponge.  Our beauty and body care sponges have been manufactured in the UK exclusively by Ramer Ltd since 1946. Our entire first year’s production was bought by the Elizabeth Arden Cosmetics company. In 1949, we started supplying our sponges to Boots Pure Drug Company and we are very proud to have continued our relationship to the present day with Boots Company PLC.  Our sponges and Ramerfoam® material are now sold to the technical and consumer markets across the world.

 

What are the benefits of a PVA body sponge?

 

There are many benefits to introducing a PVA body sponge into your bath, shower or beauty regime.

 

1.   PVA sponge reacts to its environment

 

PVA sponge is incredibly clever at reacting to its environment and that is why it makes such a great bathroom sponge. When soaked in water, the sponge becomes amazingly soft but when you leave it to dry it will harden, helping to prevent the growth of bathroom bacteria. PVA sponge in itself is effectively inert and will not support bacterial growth.

 

It’s important for sponges to dry after use as some bacteria and fungus rely on water to reproduce and grow. Our sponges will instantly soften again when soaked in warm water, ready to re-use, giving you the confidence that your sponge doesn’t contain lots of nasties.

 

2.   PVA sponge soaks up an incredible amount of water

 

When taking a bath, many of us love using a sponge to drench our skin in warm water. The splash of water running off your skin is a great sensation and leaves you feeling super fresh.

 

As a hydrophilic material, PVA sponge can hold up to 12 times its dry weight in water and remains incredible strong. This means that you can drench your skin time and time again without having to replace your Ramer sponge regularly.

 

3.   Our sponges are machine washable

 

A wet PVA sponge can withstand temperatures nearing 70 o C and a dry sponge is resilient up to about 100 o C.

 

This means that a Ramer sponge is machine washable. When your sponge needs a little refresh, just pop it in the washing machine along with your other laundry at 40 o C and your sponge will come out squeaky clean, ready to use again.

 

Washing your Ramer sponge regularly helps keep it fresh and in a good condition which means it lasts longer and outlives other cheap alternatives, eliminating the need for you to keep replacing your sponge.

 

4.   PVA sponge is incredibly versatile

 

A PVA sponge’s cell size can be varied, allowing us to make a variety of sponge products to suit your needs.

 

For example, the cell structure in our Invigorating Body Sponge is different from the structure of the multi award-winning Ultra Soft Baby Sponge, creating two very different textures. The Invigorating Body Sponge’s cell structure creates a coarse surface, providing a refreshing, exfoliating experience. Our Ultra Soft Baby Sponge has been specially developed with a super fine texture which ensures the super soft sponge is kind towards baby’s delicate skin.

 

5.   Ramer sponges have so many more benefits

 

If you’ve got this far, you’ll understand by now that Ramer sponges are star performers. But this is not all. Our products are hypoallergenic, lint free, contain no parabens, made with organic colours and are cruelty free

 

Our sponges are super-soft but incredibly hardy and unlike cheaper alternatives, they can be wrung out without any damage occuring. Other sponges may disintegrate in time, but our sponges are long-lasting, so you won’t have to keep replacing them.

 

We hope you’ve enjoyed learning about the benefits of a PVA sponge. We believe that it is the best sponge material available which is why we have invested in our manufacturing facilities, research, and development of Ramerfoam® products to bring you the best beauty and body care sponge products which are available across the globe.

Protect your skin from Jack Frost this winter with Ramer Sponges

Sustainable sponge products for dry and sensitive skin

 

 

Cold weather can be harsh on your skin so it’s important to use gentle products that soothe and nourish this winter.

 

Ramer Sponges, the UK’s leading producer of super absorbent and super soft sponge products, can help you get started on your sustainable winter skincare routine with its NEW Luxury Body Sponge (£5.50 RRP), Cleansing Shammy for Sensitive Skin (£4.99 RRP) and Facial Cleansing Sponges (£3.25 RRP).

 

Ramer Luxury Body Sponge

For individuals looking to make their winter bathtime routine more sustainable, the Luxury Body Sponge (£5.50 RRP) is a must-have.

 

Launched in 2022, the vegan Ramer Luxury Body Sponge is an ethical alternative to a natural sea sponge. It has been specifically designed to mimic the texture and feel of the plant-like animal, and is Ramer’s first product to be sold dry in a cardboard box. The sponge will quickly soften when soaked in warm water and the packaging can be added to your household recycling bin alongside other cardboard.

 

As its name suggests, Ramer’s Luxury Body Sponge offers a truly luxurious pampering experience. Used with a preferred shower gel or cream, the sponge will create a rich lather, ready to wash and gently exfoliate the skin, perfect for winter baths. It can hold 12 times its weight in water and is available in two colours: Hessian and Forest Green.

 

Ramer Cleansing Shammy for Sensitive Skin

For those looking for a more sustainable alternative to disposable wet wipes, the Ramer Cleansing Shammy for Sensitive Skin (£4.99 RRP) provides the perfect solution.

 

Available in seven colours, the shammy removes all traces of make-up to gently cleanse the skin and is perfect for applying cleansers and lotions. With its ultra-soft, smooth surface, the Ramer Cleansing Shammy will leave the skin feeling fresh, glowing, deeply cleansed and radiant.

 

By using this handy little shammy to take good care of your skin throughout the winter months, your skin will be glowing in time for the summer season. 

 

Ramer Facial Cleansing Sponges

Layers of make-up can be harsh towards delicate winter skin, so it needs to be thoroughly removed at the end of every day to keep pores clear. The Ramer Facial Cleansing Sponges (£3.25 RRP) do just that.

 

The sponges have a soft and textured surface which gently cleanses and exfoliates the skin, are easy to hold and available in handy twin packs. Unlike other facial sponges, Ramer’s innovative product features a slightly larger pore size which grips make-up residue and dirt when cleansing with your favourite exfoliator. This helps unblock the pores and gently exfoliates and stimulates new skin growth to leave your skin feeling softer, smoother, brighter and deeply cleansed.

 

Made from a magical material, all Ramer Sponges’ products harden as they dry, helping to prevent the growth of bacteria, and are machine washable at 40 o C so you won’t have to keep replacing your sustainable skincare collection. Super-soft, non-scratchy, hypoallergenic and long-lasting, Ramer Sponges’ products will make a great addition to your winter skincare routine.

New sustainable Luxury Body Sponge launched for blissful bathing

 

An ethical alternative to a natural sea sponge, now in 100% recyclable packaging 

Responding to the demand for more sustainable bodycare products, Ramer Sponges has launched its first sponge available in 100% recyclable cardboard packaging.

 

An ethical alternative to a natural sea sponge, Ramer’s new Luxury Body Sponge (£5.50 RRP) has been specifically designed to mimic the texture and feel of the plant-like animal. The first Ramer Sponges product to be sold dry in a cardboard box, the sponge will instantly soften when soaked in warm water. The packaging can then be added to your household recycling bin alongside other cardboard in the normal way.

 

Made from a magical material, this hypoallergenic sponge hardens as it dries helping to prevent the growth of bacteria, is long lasting and machine washable at 40o C.

 

The new product launch comes after it has been revealed that Gen Z (those born between 1997 and 2012) are prioritising sustainable brands when it comes to their shopping habits. In a recent survey of 2,000 people by Depop and Bain and Company, 90% have made changes to be more sustainable in their daily lives and 45% are influenced by eco-friendly materials.

 

As its name suggests, Ramer’s Luxury Body Sponge offers a truly luxurious pampering experience. Used with a preferred shower gel or cream, the sponge will soon create a rich lather, ready to wash and gently exfoliate the skin. The sponge can hold 12 times its weight in water, drenching the body and providing an incredible bathing experience.

 

To suit all bathroom interiors, the Ramer Luxury Body Sponge is available in two colours: Hessian and Forest Green. Unlike a natural sea sponge which can soon disintegrate, the Ramer Luxury Body Sponge does not lint or tear, is long lasting and easily kept fresh and clean by popping it in the washing machine. 

 

In addition to leaving natural sea sponges in the sea where they belong, the Ramer Luxury Body Sponge is vegan-friendly. Sea sponges are vital to scientific research on the history of life on earth. Natural sea sponges have existed for 640 million years, 400 million years before the dinosaurs, and provide scientists with an insight into the marine ecosystem and how it was formed.

 

Like all Ramer Sponges products, the new Ramer Luxury Body Sponge will harden as it dries, helping to prevent the growth of bacteria, and will instantly soften when soaked in warm water, ready to re-use again. This bathroom essential is dermatologically tested and ideal for sensitive skin.

 

Paul Lloyd-Smith, Managing Director at Ramer Sponges, commented: “We are delighted to announce the launch of the new Ramer Luxury Body Sponge, the first of our products which is sold in a 100% recyclable cardboard box. There’s no doubt that the demand for environmentally friendly products in the health and beauty industry has increased, so we are pleased to respond with this natural sea sponge alternative in recyclable packaging.

 

“Despite being sold dry unlike our other products which are sold soft in moisture-sealed packs, the Ramer Luxury Body Sponge doesn’t compromise on quality. With the ability to hold 12 times its weight in water, this sponge delivers the optimum luxury bathing experience.”

 

The Ramer Luxury Body Sponge is £5.50 RRP and available via www.ramersponges.com.

 

 

 

 

 

Meet the team: Nick Hunt, National Accounts Manager at Ramer Sponges

Nick Hunt

 

From working with international brands to owning and running a successful restaurant in East Devon, Ramer Sponges’ Nick Hunt has held a variety of roles throughout his career. After working on several exciting campaigns, including Bacardi Breezer in the 00’s when its popularity soared, Nick joined Ramer Sponges in February 2016.

 

Here, we talk to Nick about his career background, what he loves about working at Ramer and what advice he would give to young people considering a career in the sales or marketing industry.

 

Hi Nick! Tell us about your career background…

Well, I’ve had quite a varied career having worked with several well-known brands. After college, I spent most of my time in Sales and Marketing roles. I worked for Gillette for five years, both within the UK and internationally. I then had roles within Holsten Pils, which at the time was part of Scottish Courage which is now Heineken. After that, I spent 10 years at Bacardi Martini in a variety of sales and marketing roles.

 

I was with Bacardi at the height of the Breezer phenomenon and was responsible for repositioning Bacardi Breezer to 25+ females in response to changing consumer needs. We developed the Half Sugar Bacardi Breezer including new products, packaging, all of which was fully consumer researched within three months.

 

I then worked at the Gerber Juice Company in Bridgewater for three years before I bought my own seafood restaurant and bar. This was obviously a complete career change, but I wanted to try something new. I ran the restaurant, which was based in Exmouth, for seven years before selling up and joining Ramer.

 

Describe your job role and your main responsibilities at Ramer Sponges.

Ramer Sponges is great because it allows me to get involved in several aspects of the business. My prime responsibility is for national sales whether direct or via our sales agent. I am also heavily involved in consumer marketing including public relations and NPD.

 

What do you enjoy about working at Ramer Sponges?

We can make decisions rapidly. I’ve worked at organisations where it can take a very long time for decisions to be made, but at Ramer, it’s easier to get quick decisions from the team so that you can progress the task in hand far more swiftly. We are a small, loyal and dedicated group where people are always happy to pitch in. There’s very much a can-do attitude. If you want something done or you need a helping hand, team members are always very obliging and keen to help out.

 

Do you have any aims or goals you would like to achieve in the future at Ramer Sponges?

 

My aim is to continue to grow and build the business as there’s plenty of sales opportunities within different sectors out there. I would also like to get our award-winning products into more stores across the country, making our super-soft sponges even more accessible for the consumer. I’d like to continue running creative campaigns which will generate plenty of publicity for our sponges.

 

What advice would you give young people wanting to start a career in the industry?

The good thing about sales in consumer goods is that you can start with minimal qualifications. You just need a good work ethic. It can start simply with in-store merchandising and data collection. Many of the junior merchandising, business development or regional account management roles are often outsourced to third parties, so look out for these as an entry point.

 

It’s also the type of role where it is possible to work from pretty much any location, so you can do the job wherever you live. A university education isn’t a necessity as you will be trained on the job. It’s great as you can start at a junior level where you will learn all the basic skills, and then you can progress and grow within the organisation where other opportunities will become available. 

 

Finally, I would advise being patient. You won’t land your dream role overnight but if you put in the hard work and dedication, it will be noticed, and you will get there.

 

 

Meet the team: Paul Lloyd-Smith, Managing Director at Ramer Sponges

 

 

Behind every successful company is a great team and no one understands that better than Ramer Sponges’ Managing Director Paul Lloyd-Smith. Having been with the company for 55 years and counting, Paul has spearheaded Ramer’s expansion and along with his close-knit team, has cemented Ramer’s reputation as the UK’s leading producer of super absorbent and super soft sponge products.

 

Here, we talk to Paul about how it all started, the challenges he has faced and what the future looks like for Ramer Sponges.

 

 

How did Ramer Sponges start and when did you become involved?

Well, the art of making PVA sponge was first developed during the Second World War. Scientists needed to find a substitute for balsa wood to use in the production of the frames for mosquito fighter planes. This was a top priority. The dry property of the PVA sponge, which is very strong and rigid, was used in the production of the frames but it had one drawback. The material is beautifully soft when wet which is why it never ended up in the air!  

The idea for Ramer Sponges started to form in 1945 when the founder, Reginald Boswell, recognised the soft quality of the PVA sponge and its potential in the bodycare market. My father joined Ramer in 1949 and he asked me to join the firm 20 years later.

The company was originally based in Camberley, Surrey, where the rent was particularly expensive. When you consider that your neighbour is Toshiba selling electronic equipment for a lot more money than a humble sponge, the rent just wasn’t viable for us. So, we decided to up-root and move to the West Country where we bought a site in Honiton. Originally it was an army depot. There was even an unexploded bomb found nearby not long after we arrived.

We brought the packaging side of the business down to Honiton first and then five or six years later the manufacturing arm of the business came too. Our Manager at the time decided to live down in the West Country so that was a big advantage when starting the process from scratch here in Honiton.

 

Why sponge products and was there a gap in the market?

In 1946, synthetic sponges did not exist. The only available sponges in the world were natural sea sponges. Reginald Boswell saw the opportunity to market the PVA sponge material as a super soft, hard-wearing sponge for personal use.

 

Describe your job role and your main responsibilities. What is a day in the life like as Ramer Sponges’ Managing Director?

My job is to steer the business, develop a secure financial position in the marketplace and promote our brand name. The day normally starts with a meeting between Production Planning and my Executive Manager, and I ensure to regularly communicate with my National Accounts Manager for updates on sales progress. Every day is different, but I can guarantee that at some point throughout the day, you will see me on the factory floor with my sleeves rolled up and assisting with production.

 

What do you enjoy about working at Ramer Sponges?

I think the most enjoyment for me comes from adapting the foam to cater for a myriad of uses. The medical side always appeals to me, and we continue to work more in the industrial side. This is a challenge as the characteristics of the sponge make it difficult, the fact that it dries hard, so we are always looking at new methods to overcome those challenges

 

What challenges did you face during the Covid-19 pandemic and how did you overcome them?

The Covid-19 pandemic was indeed a challenge. At first, nobody knew the dangers of the virus to health and welfare so we shut the factory for a month whilst we investigated as much as we could. We reopened following Government guidance. This involved implementing one-way systems around the factory and installing hand sanitising stations. We also introduced compulsory face masks and temperature testing daily for our workforce. I’m pleased to say that to date, we have had no infections in the workplace, so our safety measures have obviously made a positive difference.  

 

 

How important is teamwork at Ramer Sponges and how do you motivate your team?

No small company can exist without a dedicated team which we most certainly have at Ramer Sponges. I like to roll my sleeves up and get involved on the factory floor whenever I can. I think this is important for the team to see that I’m not one of those Managing Directors that sits behind a desk all day. I believe that showing you aren’t afraid of hard work is a great way to motivate your team.

 

 

What does the future of Ramer Sponges look like and any aims or goals that you would like to achieve?

We offer a relatively inexpensive product which is long-lasting and gives an exceptional tactile experience. With effective PR and Marketing campaigns, we hope to reach a larger audience. My goals? I’d like to hang up my spurs knowing that Ramer Sponges will continue to make bath time a breeze and that our products give people pleasure.

As the world strives to carve out a sustainable future to help protect the planet for generations to come, we’re currently looking at developing a more environmentally friendly packaging concept in an effort to reduce the amount of plastic waste we produce.

 

 

What advice would you give young people wanting to start a career in the manufacturing industry?

A few years ago, I would have said not to bother! But now, I would actually encourage young people to start a career in manufacturing. British manufacturing has always been well respected and now more than ever UK consumers are prioritising British-made products. Joining an apprenticeship scheme is an excellent starting point as you can learn vital skills on the job which usually leads to full-time employment. 

 

 

 

Rub-A-Dub Dub, Brits take smartphones into the tub! 

REVEALED: Bath-loving Brits can’t be without a smartphone, even in the bath, as the nation’s bath time habits are uncovered ahead of International Bath Day

 

·       Britain’s bath time habits revealed ahead of International Bath Day (14th June 2021)

·       A third of UK adults use their smartphones in the bath

·       24% of respondents bathe with a partner and 5% bathe with a pet

·       58% of adults indulge in a bath as a way to relax during the pandemic

 

At a time when self-care is more important than ever before, a third of Brits cannot put their smartphones down even when enjoying a bath.

A new study by the UK’s leading sponge producer, Ramer Sponges, has revealed that digital devices are now a part of our bath time routine. Out of 2,000 UK adults who enjoy a bath regularly, 33% of people use a smartphone with 64% of the total respondents being female.  

 

To mark International Bath Day (14th June 2021), Ramer conducted the study via OnePoll to discover the UK’s bathing habits. Whilst it has uncovered that Brits can’t bear to part with their smartphones, even when they are taking a soak, some of the other findings are also surprising.

It seems it’s not just our digital devices joining us in the bath, as research reveals taking a bath is not necessarily a single pursuit. 24% of respondents bathe with a partner and 9% have sex in the bath, indicating that baths can play an important role when it comes to romance. Briton’s don’t just bathe with their partners. 9% bathe with their children and 5% even bathe with a pet!   

 

The last 12 months have been testing, with 56% of UK adults having experienced symptoms of stress and anxiety during the pandemic (source: The Health Foundation). Ramer’s survey has revealed that many of us have been taking care of ourselves at home whilst facilities such as spas, gyms and leisure centres have been closed. 58% of respondents indicated that their main reason for indulging in a bath was to simply relax. 27% listen to music or a podcast, 25% like to get lost in a good book and 10% meditate whilst taking a soak.

 

In a time-poor culture, it seems that we are still making self-care and periods of relaxation a priority in everyday life with respondents spending on average 23 minutes in the bath. 78% of people confirmed that they feel relaxed after taking a bath, 35% feel happy, 33% feel recharged and 25% feel uplifted.

 

Analysing what people use to wash themselves with in the bath, Ramer discovered more than a quarter of people choose a bath sponge, a traditional bath time favourite. Sponges are paired with common bath products with 61% using bubble bath, 61% using soap or shower gel and 52% using shampoo.

 

Paul Lloyd-Smith at Ramer Sponges comments that the findings give a fascinating insight into modern day bathing habits.

 

Paul said: “To celebrate International Bath Day this year, we wanted to dive deep into Britain’s bathing habits and what we have found out has truly surprised us. For many of us, the bathroom is still seen as a bit of a sanctuary, a place for ‘me time’, but it’s been fascinating to see that for some, that means combining our relaxing soak with scrolling on a screen.  Many of us might also assume that bathing is a lone activity, but our findings suggest that it can be quite sociable. 10% of us even chat on the phone whilst in the bath and 13% talk to other members of the household who are physically in the bathroom too!”

 

Paul continued: “Ramer’s sponges have been a bath time staple for over 70 years, and we’re delighted to hear that bath sponges are still a popular choice amongst bath lovers. With people feeling happy, recharged and uplifted after taking a bath, we encourage everyone to take some time out this International Bath Day, run a bath and take a relaxing soak.”

 

Ramer Sponges is the UK’s leading manufacturer of super soft and super absorbent sponge products for beauty and body care. Made from a magic material that dries hard to help prevent the growth of bacteria on the sponges, these hypo allergenic, machine washable sponges are available via department stores, superstores, high street beauty retailers, independent chemists and www.ramersponges.com
