Sea Pearls are completely natural sea sponges that come from the ocean. Here at Jade & Pearl, a great deal of care is given to every single sponge we send out. Each Sea Pearl is washed, inspected, trimmed, and packaged by our expert sponge squad. The detailed care that goes into each sponge ensures that we continue providing the same high quality sea sponges that we have offered to the women of the world for the past 40 years.
Sea Pearls are:
|sponge type||comes from...|
|classic||atlantic, carribean, bahamas|
|premium ultra soft||mediterranean sea|
|teeny||1 - 2"||0.5 - 1 fl oz|
|medium||2 - 2.5"||1 - 2 fl oz|
|large||2.5 - 3"+||2 - 3.5+ fl oz|
Not sure which size? Our Multi Pack includes one of each!
Each package includes:
Please note: Sea Pearls are not synthetically manufactured. Because sea sponges grow naturally, they vary by shape, size, color, and texture. The sponges you receive may not look as pictured on this page and may look different from your previous orders.
Sponges can be delicate so great care should be taken when cleaning and using them. If cared for properly, sponges can last 3-6 months or more.
1. Use a natural chemical-free soap or soak for 5-10 minutes in a cup of warm water with one of the following:
2. Rinse sponge and squeeze out excess water
Do not boil your sponge! Boiling shrinks and toughens sea sponges. Do not use harsh soaps or chemicals! Do not soak your sponges longer than the recommended time as it could cause the sponge to deteriorate faster.
how often should sponges be cleaned?
Sea Pearls can be rinsed and reused multiple times and do not need to be sanitized after each use. We recommend that you clean your sponge:
Sponges should also be completely dry before storage and should be kept in a breathable bag or container.
how to trim a sponge
Once wet, sponges compress and become extremely soft and pliable. If you feel your sponge is too large, it can easily be trimmed to a custom size.
If the surface of your sponge starts to become ragged, do not rip or tear the sponge. Instead, trim the loose pieces off with scissors until the surface is smooth. This will extend the lifetime of your sponge.
what are they?
Sea sponges are plant-like creatures that grow in colonies in the ocean. They are the simplest of multi-cellular animals and have no nervous system or brain.
what makes them sustainable?
Sea sponges are a renewable resource as they possess remarkable powers of regeneration. They have the ability to regrow lost parts and pieces broken off by water currents. Sponge fragments can also settle in another location and regrow into a clone of the parent sponge. When sponges are harvested, divers cut them so the base of the sponge remains intact. This ensures that the sponge has the ability to regenerate and regrow so they can return and harvest them over and over.
Sea sponges also reproduce sexually. Most sponges are both male and female and will play either role during reproduction. When a sponge acts as a male, it releases sperm that travel and fertilize eggs in a sponge acting as a female. The fertilized eggs develop into baby sponges that are released into the water to settle down and start growing. The next time the sponges reproduce, they may change sexual roles.
how are sea sponges harvested?
Sponges are harvested by hand-cutting the sponge or by using a hook and tearing the sponge free from the bottom. Studies have shown that cutting the sponge and leaving the base intact is the best method as it encourages a speedier regrowth. In the areas where sponge diving is permitted, divers are required to harvest sponges by cutting rather than tearing the sponge free.
There are several measures in place to protect the sponge population and marine ecosystems:
• All sponges harvested must have a minimum dimension of 5 inches.
• Sponge harvesting is strictly prohibited in sanctuaries such as the Everglades National Park and Biscayne National Park.
• With over 5000 varieties of sponges, only a small percentage are harvested for commercial use and are generally not found in coral reef areas.

I absolutly love sea pearls, I often forget that I am even having a period. As a legal assistant I have to dress very nice for my job and I would often worry about leaking through or not being able to wear that because of my period but with the sea pearls I am able to comfortably get up and dress without worry. I will never go back to pads, or uncomfortable tampons again.
Posted by Unknown
I always hated wearing pads. I wanted to try tampons but I heard to many bad stories about them. So I never tryed them. As I am getting older I wanted to try something different so I googled what did women do back in the day be fore pads. One of the sites gave me answers with links to some of the things they did use. So I clicked on jade and pearl and decided I would try it. I love it they are comfortable and easy to use. Don't know why it took me so long to even google it. Now I am letting my friends know of your product. It saves me money and comfortable. Thank you

Absolutely love sea pearls. I've converted many of my friends to the sea sponges. I'll never go back to regular tampons.

I have endometriosis and every month is torture. I have cramps that make it painful just to stand. So, was I surprised when the first month I used the sponges my cramps were very light for one day, and then gone!! I still am in shock. My cramps may have been from the chemicals in the store bought items, but I am just thankful they are gone. I really like the ease and comfort sea sponges give me. I will never buy any store products again. I also bought cloth pads as a back up.. if I coughed or sneezed the sponge might leake just a bit. Not a prob tho, so easy to remove, rinse, and replace. My sis is also trying the sponges. I am so impressed with the quality and design. I recommend this product 100%!!

I am really enjoying the quality of the sea pearls. I feel secure and clean when I need to wear them. They capture everything they need to capture.

I have used these sponges for over 10 years and I must say that I have never been disappointed with the size, quality or price!
Posted by Louisa
I'm really sad to say I was super disappointed by these. I had trouble getting even the smallest one in (yes I followed the instructions and soaked it in vinegar/water first to sanitize and soften). I could compress it with my hands but the whole sponge just wouldn't go in no matter how I pushed. The part that did go in, meanwhile, hurt a lot down there even though the sponge feels soft to my hand. I do realize I could've used lubricant and other things to facilitate the process but honestly, the whole thing was enough of a hassle with disinfecting and sewing floss on. I really wanted to like these but for now it's back to pads I guess.
That said, I am definitely small down there, but I wanted to write this review for anyone else who is similarly sized because all these positive reviews are not justified for people who are smaller.

I wish everyone would switch from disposable products! I love these sponges.
They are just like tampons, but even better because: reusable products mean minimized environmental impact and minimized impact on your budget. I also find sponges more comfortable and not scratchy at all. They're an all natural solution that is better for your body (no chemical additives) which for me has an added bonus of no more infections since switching to sponge tampons and reusable pads. Also awesome if you want to have period sex without a mess. And maybe it's me, but I think these do a job of a tampon even better too; it is impressive how much these can hold.
Cant think of one bad thing about them. :)
Do invest in a wet bag though; the bag provided by J&P is not meant for transporting used sponges.

I love the jade and pearl sea sponge tampons because there product has given me the freedom to choose tampons during my menstrual cycle whereas before I was only comfortable wearing pads. I opted for the teeny size upgraded to premium and was able to wear one (even though it is not recommended) for 11 hours straight with no leakage or discomfort. My only problem with the sea sponge tampon was an inability to grip it tightly enough to remove it easily. However that was quickly remedied by sewing a peice of dental floss through the tampon before my next insertion.
Posted by Unknown
Pretty fast shipping and I was impressed with the quality of the product. I would suggest trying all three sizes and cutting them to fit, especially if you're of smaller frame. To keep them sanitary is a bit of extra leg work but I mostly feel that they're worth the effort and comfort.
Posted by Heather Head
What else can I say? They do exactly as advertised. There are TWO in a pack so don't do like I do and order two packs, unless you really want four of them. :)
Much better than tampons because they don't dry you out, even if you change them too frequently. You do have to get pretty un-squeamish about the blood, but that's good for you anyway.
I use these for my heaviest two days, and the night in between when my cloth pads would otherwise get soaked through in an hour or two. The sponge combined with a pad allows me to go several hours between changes. On lighter days, I'll use a sponge if I'm just not in the mood to change pads.

I'm so pleased with the sea pearl tampons! I'm able to comfortably wear each size at any time during the day/night with any flow.
These are a MUST!

I've been using this product for over 7 years and I'm very happy with it. It's comfortable and easy to use. I used to have problems with candidiasis from time to time and I haven't had a single one since I use the sponge tampons. I would recommend them to every women!

I wanted to try something different for my periods and period sex. I normally use the Diva cup for periods. Insertion was extremely easy. Worked great during sex, kept everything messy free, loved it!!! During my period, it was extremely comfy, no leakage. The only thing I have to get accustomed to is changing sponges in public, but other than that, love 'em!!!

I made the switch to sponges about two years ago and will never go back. Jade and Pearl deliver the best sponges on the market. I will be purchasing again!

So, at first I was a little bit worried about the integrity of the sponges. After all, they are organic material, and as such, they aren't a perfect, uniform, even shape or texture all around. I thought surely that would mean a mishap. I've never had a leak with them, and I run, climb, swim and have sex with these bad boys in. They're also really comfy to insert. This is a huge plus for me, since I have especially painful periods. I dare say that my periods might hurt a little less since I've started using these. All I can say is that they are wonderful!
There is only one downside to them, and that is the scent you get when you remove them. What you lose in your monthly cycle is more than blood: It also contains tissue. As such, the scent can be a little shocking at first if you're not used to using the sponges and have been running with bleached or scented toiletries up until now.
The good news is: You can't detect the scent while the sponge is inside you. In fact, once you rinse the sponge before putting it back in, it virtually disappears entirely. The tea tree oil is helpful, as it doesn't just "mask" the scent, but any lingering scent that you might not've gotten from rinsing will be gone after a few drops of tea-tree and another good rinsing. I usually don't use the tea-tree unless I'm about to put the sponge in for the first time on my period, or after I remove it the last and I want to make sure it is good and sanitary while it stores for another month. A few drops to saturate the sponge, let sit for a minute, then rinse well. Give it a thorough shaking so that water doesn't sit in it while it stores, and viola! Throw it back in the carrying case and forget about it till you need it again!
I'm sold. The only reason I even have pads and tampons in my cabinet anymore are in case a friend comes over and needs them.
P.S. I highly recommend getting the premium sponges. SOOO SOFT!

I've been using these premium sponges for years. I"m on my 3rd set. Switched to them from the diva cup. So happy with them! Thank you!

I've used these for my last 3 cycles and was initially skeptical. They have impressed me far beyond my expectations. Yes, the smaller ones can be difficult to get out at first, but it gets easier with practice. They can be used comfortably, and even pleasurably, during sex without any mess. I was having difficulty with bv, but used the sponge with a mild solution of highly diluted tea tree oil and an emptied probiotic capsule before bed for several days in a row, and no more bv! I could not be happier with a purchase than I am with these.

I LOVE These sponges. Easy to use, in good condition and make me feel so much healthier during my cycle (not to mention more comfortable)

I've used my sponge for two menstrual periods so far and... WOW!!! I've used tampons since I was a teenager and always suffered from BV after each period. I have to say these past two months have been great. No more BV, no bad smells and I feel 100 times cleaner.
Thanks Jade and pearl. Best product I've ever used.

The fact that you guys delete all negative reviews on your product really makes the site seem... illegitimate. When looking for a product to purchase online, I always check the negative reviews, to see what people really think about them. Oftentimes positive reviews are purchased (I know this well, because I used to get paid to write them), and how will you ever learn about the issues the product has without a negative review? Anyway, I will never make a purchase from this company, knowing that the reviews are rigged, and most likely purchased.
*Note from Jade & Pearl
We received this anonymous complaint and thought we would make a statement about it for anyone else wondering the same thing. All of our reviews are genuine and have been submitted over the years from happy customers. We don't have any negative reviews on the website because no one has submitted any as of yet. We are always open to hear negative feedback as it only helps us improve the products and improve as a company. Often negative feedback can also just be a misunderstanding with how the Sea Pearls function, so it is better to speak up as it is very possible that the issue can be easily resolved.
Thank you for the comment!

I am never, ever going back to tampons again! Sea Pearls are so great and eco friendly I recommend them to all my friends. My daughter even used one to clean the floor but it was fine to use after I rinsed it out. Great product!
*Note from Jade & Pearl
We wouldn't recommend using your Sea Pearls for cleaning purposes while still using them for menstruation. But feel free to recycle them after you are done using them for their intended purpose!

My purpose for staying a loyal customer of Jade & Pearl is to purchase the best quality products for uterine prolapse. However, there are days when only a little support is needed so I decided to try the "tampon" sponges. I find they work just fine and give just the right amount of support for the times when I'm not that active. As I've said before, J&P has been a Godsend and I highly recommend them!
*Note from Jade & Pearl
We are so happy that you have found the Sea Pearls to be a helpful solution! The Sea Pearl tampons can be used for prolapse support, however we would like to state that these smaller size sponges may not be large enough to provide enough support for all women. It really depends on the woman and the severity of the prolapse. The Sea Pearls for Prolapse are larger sized sponges and can always be custom trimmed to fit your body and prolapse needs.
Thank you for sharing!!

Yes... To Good To Be True... I have only used a tampon maybe 8 times in my life. The fear of infection or leaks always kept me away from them. So I have always used alway$ they have been my go to. My issue with them, I am a heavy flow chick, more so since my IUD (copper). Every cycle I leak at some point. During the day, night, cough, sneeze, sitting to long, walking for too long and lets not talk about exercise. Always feared messing up panties, clothing, sheets or furniture. And I have done so on occassion. Not to mention the bulky bags now boxes they come in. And the odor that comes with the removal. I ordered Sea Pearls DEC 2013 and have been waiting and waitng for my cycle to start. I am sooo looking forward to the performance of these sponges. I bought the Premium 3 pack in incase I have to double or triple up, since I have a heavy flow. I am starting with the smallest and will work my way up. I have done my research and em super excited I will update you all :D Sorry for the ramble.....

I love these and can't say enough good things about them. Besides the fact that they work so well and last so long, there is almost (over their lifetime) zero packaging! Some are not as soft as I'd like but I'll have to try to the premium ones.
Posted by Karin
I love your sponges and have been using them for years. My daughter is excited to use them when she starts her period (she's nine and a half, so it could be any time now). And I just recommended them to my mom, who is 75 and had a hysterectomy last year and "leaks" now. Let's hope they work for her too!

When I first used regular tampons as a teen, I was forever turned off. I used them only twice - both times I found them incredibly painful. I thought I'd never use tampons. Then when I found out about reusable pads, I stumbled onto these as well. I tried them - what a difference! So comfortable! No pain! I even use the regular ones, not the premium, because they eventually get softer with use (so I assume they last longer before they get too soft to be very effective). And environmentally friendly to boot! There is no downside to these. Try them, you won't regret it!
Posted by Sam
I am actually looking forward to my period now. I had no idea these existed, but so glad I found them. I've been wanting to use a more natural product during my cycles, but since giving birth, I've had a hard time finding something that's worked well and been comfortable. The cups and natural tampons didn't seem to fit well anymore. But these sea sponge tampons are perfect - they custom fit to your body and are barely noticeable. Love, love, love them!
Posted by Unknown
WOW! When these arrived I thought they were HUGE! Certainly too big to use! But they are so soft and smooshy (yes, that's the technical term I use for them) it was no problem at all. And they do exactly what they are supposed to do. Great product!

Love the three pack. gives options during your cycle and you can pick which one you need that day.

I bought these to solve a problem I've lived with for over twenty years. Almost every time I have sex, I bleed. Most of the time it's a small amount, but sometimes, it's disturbing. Now that I have these, I have a normal sex life, for the first time. Ever. I use the smallest. It's practically unnoticeable. Fingers will find it, but if your partner knows it's there, they won't mind. It only stops the blood. Your natural lubrication still happens. This is a savior of my sex life.

I'm so happy to have these. They are extremely comfortable (much more so than tampons) and absorbent to boot! They are pretty easy to insert and remove if you're comfortable with your own body and its doings, and they stay in place so well! I've always been afraid of toxic shock syndrome so I've been plagued with having to wear giant pads until I found these! YAY!

I can't say enough how much I love the sea sponge tampons. They're so comfortable. The upgrade to the premium was well worth the $2. The premiums are softer and more absorbent. I keep on coming back.

I had been looking for a natural alternative to tampons and came upon Jade and Pearl's sea sponge tampons. I got the premium ones (after having read online about people complaining about the toughness of some sea sponges) and could not be happier. The instructions are pretty straight forward--though I would have liked more clarity on the daily menstrual use of the sponges (after rinsing them out after use do you let them dry then put them in again/ do you have to disinfect them after every use? should you let them dry out completely before putting them in again?). Definitely wet the sponges a little before inserting them, it makes the process so much easier!! The little bag that comes with the sponges isn't that great (starts falling apart, strings fall out) so I will have to make my own to replace it. Despite my slight confusion about the process and the low quality storage bag, I am SUPER happy with the sponges and will never go back to regular tampons.
*Jade & Pearl Note: Thank you for your input about the need for more instructions. We are working on a new brochure and will be sure to include more detailed instructions. Just to clarify in case anyone else has similar questions - After rinsing out a sponge there is no need to let them dry or to disinfect them before reinserting. Just rinse them out, squeeze out the excess water, and pop them back in. You can either disinfect them when you are done using them for the day, or once every couple of days. We do recommend disinfecting them at the end of your cycle before storing them away for next month. You should always wet the sponge and squeeze them out prior to insertion as they are much softer when damp. We also appreciate your input about the storage bags. If you need a sturdier storage bag we recommend purchasing one of our Sponge Totes.

I've had problems in the past with conventional tampons; they cause me discomfort and some very slight urine leakage due to the way my bladder is positioned in relation to my uterus, which is retroverted. (It's not a common problem from what I understand.) I also don't like the chemicals and such used in conventional tampons, and I'm not a fan of the waste they generate. Enter Sea Pearls. I found these a few years ago and have not looked back. They give me zero comfort issues, I have no urine leakage, and I feel better about their impact on the environment. It's a win all around! The only problem I've run into lately is slight discomfort on inserting and removing them due to some scar tissue from giving birth a year ago, but that's manageable depending on the sponge and method of insertion. Overall: great product!

I never had an issue with using tampons but after reading about all the harmful ingredients used to make them and the potential dangers of using tampons, I decided to try some more natural alternatives. First I tried using cups and experimented with many different types but I found them too difficult to remove and kind of rigid and gross. Then I heard about sea sponges. I am so happy I decided to try these! Although they seem hard and rough when dry, once you wet them, they are super soft and inserting them could not be easier. Go ahead and get the premium ones, you won't be sorry. Removing them is a little tricky, you have to become comfortable with reaching in there to get them out, but its pretty simple once you get the hang of it. If you choose to use tea tree oil to disinfect them, the residual oil will help protect against infections. Fantastic product!

I've always been a tampon girl, but found that they had started to get very uncomfortable in the last few months. I tried the sponges, and I love them! They're more comfortable and super easy to use! I highly recommend them to anyone and everyone!

I LOVE these sponges! They make my period manageable instead of nightmarish. I was always one who had trouble with tampons never quite "feeling right", but sponges are so comfortable! And they put sex back on the roster during "that time of month" ;). I also dig how they're not full of toxic chemicals... It's a win-win-win!

I love it... This is the best thing to use when you have long very heavy abnormal cycles like I do and still want to be intimate with your partner. Most of the time he doesn't even know I'm wearing it and it leaves no or very lil mess. Sea Pearls are the best!

I have always suffered from what I can only call an allergy to disposable menstrual products. I found reusable cloth pads online some time ago but it took me another year almost before I could convince myself to buy them. I love them! The only downside is that I have a fairly heavy cycle and it's insane to have enough pads on hand for the entire week (even with doing laundry). I tried cups and they just don't work for me. I was still using tampons, which essentially made the cloth pads a moot point because I was still having reactions. But once I found sea sponges I knew I had to try them!!! Now I can use a sponge with a pad as back up (in case I'm going out for longer periods of time) or go completely pad-less at home! I love having the freedom to do what I want without bulky pads and allergic reactions!!!!

Because of your products my period is no longer a difficulty. I am 43 and I was never able to use tampons as they caused me to cramp. Now it doesn't even bother me when my time arrives.
These are also a worry free solution to for backpacking and camping. Recently I introduced them to a nurse who practices in the remote Sudan miles from anywhere.

This weekend I had a reunion with Sea Pearls, and I fell in love with using them all over again. I had forgotten how easy, economical, and exceptional they are, no matter what the occasion. I was a guest at a lake house, where I had no worries about period leaks, no cramps!!!!!!, and could swim in the
lake every day. I almost wish I could relive all my previous menstrual cycles over again--only with Sea Pearls. They change EVERYTHING about your experience of having a period. What a wonderful product--I'm going to gift my younger sisters with Sea Pearls.

I recently ordered your sea pearls in Britain. I'm really impressed. I don't feel them at all, while I do feel tampons. They are so soft. No skin irritation, and great absorbancy. Very handy, you kind of feel them getting full, and then you can just rinse them out. Very hygienic, no smell. Goes beyond expectation.

I just wanted to tell you how totally thrilled I am with your product. I am a physician and I was very apprehensive when I bought these at a natural food store, but as soon as I tried them I was a convert. I have a heavy flow and have always had trouble with tampons leaking and after I gave birth to my son, tampons were very uncomfortable and didn't fit right anymore. These
sponges are amazingly absorbent and work way better than any "super" tampon I have used. They are also very comfortable, I can't even feel it once inserted, they are so soft. I was very surprised how easy they are to clean.
I have tried them also for holding back flow during intercourse which also works great. Thanks so much for making such a great product.

I started looking into more reusable feminine products after I started cloth diapering my first child, and I can't believe I ever used disposable tampons or pads before this. I love the way I don't notice it's even there. I love that I can not stink up my own or anyone else's trash can. And I love not having to go to the store all the time to buy disposables.

Hi! I just wanted to leave a comment on the Sea Pearls. I found out about them at a natural foods store, and after using it for just 1 day, I already love it!

I have been using Sea Pearls for nearly five years now and can't imagine ever using anything else again. I could easily echo everything that has been said in other reviews--that they are completely comfortable, totally convenient, they don't dry out my vagina as cotton tampons did, I love that they are so economical AND earth friendly! One of the biggest benefits for me, though, is that I feel using Sea Pearls has put me much more in touch with my body and my cycle. I have a clear sense of just how much blood is "regular" for me to shed and an understanding of my vagina which cotton tampons just didn't give me. I know I will start my daughter off on Sea Pearls when she menstruates if nothing other than for the way they allow you to be comfortable with your own body. I don't think there are enough good things to say about the many benefits of a switch to Sea Pearls.

I love sea pearls. I love the fact that they're all natural. They breathe in a way that even organic, unbleached tampons can't/don't. Often even when I had used natural tampons, I would get yeast infections. With sea sponges, that doesn't happen. I love the fact that they come from the sea, which is ruled by the moon, just like my cycle and the 'moon blood' it brings. I tell all my friends about them. After I've used them and they're no longer viable, I throw them back into the ocean from which they came and smile at the circular process and at the fact that I am not sending anything more to the landfills. Thank you Jade and Pearl.

I've been using sea pearls for about a year now. I'm probably one of the youngest users, but I'm extremely happy with them and urge other women and teens to use them also. They are so comfortable and easy to work with. I am also extremely thankful that I found sea pearls at such a young age and don't have to deal with the common pads and tampons. I also find that the fact that jade and pearl will take money orders is excellent!!! Thank you so much jade and pearl!!!!

I have been using sea sponges during my period for years. They have become very hard to find recently, I was delighted to discover them here! One great tip for sea sponges is that they can be left in place during sex. It makes for a 'no mess' experience. I have used them this way for years with nothing but good results. Not for birth control... Only to absorb menstruation. Best wishes!

I absolutely love sea pearls! I rave every chance I can get to my girlfriends and co-workers, and any woman that will listen. I've been using sea pearls for over a year now, and have been so happy with them. I don't have to worry about creating excess waste for the environment, or TSS or possible dioxide poisoning from the unnecessary bleaching of regular tampons. They are also so much more comfortable than regular tampons. Thank you for providing such a great product!

I am so excited that I discovered the sponges! I love the site, and the ordering process went smoothly. I appreciate all the info and instructions you give with the product. I wish my mom had started me on these instead of pads or tampons. I plan to purchase these for my daughter when the time comes.

I want to thank you for the last 17 years or so. My cycle became more of a joy when i found and began using the sea sponges. I now buy them for sisters, nieces and friends. I LOVE THEM.
