Bath bombs are primarily made with baking soda and citric acid. When they hit water, they fizz and spin, much like an Alka-Seltzer does in a glass of water. As they dissolve, they release skin conditioning ingredients and fragrance or essential oil vapors into the air. Some contain cosmetic dyes that will color the water but do not stain skin or tubs (please see disclaimer below). Whole Milk Powder (Milk Powder) - creates foam, while sodium lauryl suloacetate (SLSA) creates bubbles. SLSA is derived from coconut oil, and conforms to Ecocert's natural and organic cosmetic standard and is 100% of natural origin. Kaolin clay provides silky smoothness.
These are great for gifts, bridal and baby showers, bridesmaid's gifts, or just a nice treat to pamper yourself. These bath bombs are safe for kids ages 6 and above. For younger children, only use half a bomb per bath.
Unless otherwise noted, bath bombs weigh at least 4 ounces and are about the size of a tennis ball. Each is wrapped in polyolefin shrink-wrap film which is easier to open than PVC, is more environmentally friendly, and can be recycled.
As with all handmade products, no two bath bombs will be the same. There may be slight variations in the weight, shape, and color than the representative photos shown.
To Use: Before getting into the tub, unwrap the bath bomb and put it into a tub filled with warm water. Let it dissolve at least half way before getting in.
Warning: Contains oils that may make tub surfaces slippery. Use caution when entering and exiting the tub. Keep out of reach of children. Store in a cool dry place until use. If storing in the bathroom, it is best to keep it in an airtight container (a ziplock bag or glass jar are the best options). Use within 6 months of purchase. Older bath bombs or those not stored properly may lose their fizziness.
Disclaimer regarding dyes:All cosmetic dyes are batch certified as required by the FDA. When using bath bombs containing colorants, the condition of your tub will make a difference as to whether it will stain. Bath bombs with any type of colorant (mica or dyes) should NOT be used in tubs with scratched surfaces, worn spots, or missing tiles/finish. They also should not be used in porcelain tubs. Colorants will stick to soap scum so starting with a clean tub is advised. If any residue remains, simply wipe off with warm water. Bathaholic LLC is not responsible for staining resulting from bath bombs. Only you know the condition of your tub, test a small chunk of the bomb if you are in doubt of how your bath bomb will perform.
