Vegetable farm grows luffa for cosmetic use

For the past six years, La Fibre Végétale, an organic vegetable farm, has been growing luffa gourd as a crop in a greenhouse.

When they ripen, they dry out and produce a fibre that turns into a sponge that can be used to wash both dishes and a person’s body. The demand, especially by organic and zero-waste shops, will soon see production increase from 500 to 1,700 loofahs.
