The past two years have been a whirlwind of building good foundations and an amazing customer base.  We have attended vegan events such as the Edinburgh Vegan Festival and Vegfest, and have really enjoyed meeting all of you in person and introducing you to the range.  Key highlights include having three products entered into...

Say What? The Konjac Sponge Review

We recently received this curious little item at White Rabbit HQ to try - and already we're hooked! We present to you the humble yet thoroughly effective Konjac Sponge, a 100% natural product crafted from pure edible vegetable roots. Such vegetable roots are from the said Konjac plant (or Konjac Potato or Konnyaku); a perennial native to Asia which can be found growing wild at high altitudes.  First discovered in the Indochinese region, Konnyaku has been used in Korea, Japan and China for over 1,500 as medicine, food, a dieting aid and as a beauty product, and the actual konjac 'sponge' was...
