Parkes Shower Stone™ is 80-90% diatomaceous earth, a unique type of natural rock that consists of fossilised algae and aquatic microorganisms; and 20-10% natural wood fiber & calcium hydroxide which is used to bind the sand particles. Our Stone also has the environmental certificate Q/320585 and NWY 01-2018.
How does the instant dry feature actually work?
Water particles are absorbed by natural degradable diatomite earth and thousands of micro pores allow water particles to quickly dissipate which allows rapid evaporation to take place on the surface of the Stone.
What are the health benefits of using Parkes Shower Stone compared to regular bath mats?
Not only does the instant dry feature help prevent the formation of mold and mildew, the diatomite earth is also antimicrobial by nature. In its raw properties, the material attracts and binds bacteria and parasites which eventually dries out and kills them.
*Is it a soft mat?
The small size is a stone mat - imagine the sensation when stepping out of a resort pool. But we heard some of your feedback: thats's why we are making a new soft version which has the same absorbing quality! Expected delivery around mid 2022. So hit the pre-order button to reserve yours!
How long can the Stone last until I have to get a new one?
You may notice a slight drop in absorption rate after a year or so. Depending on the ventilation of your bathroom, we suggest leaving it out in the sun occasionally to dry out any possible moisture trapped in the stone.
