Bath Bomb Ingredient Info
BATH BOMB INGREDIENT INFO
Baking Soda & Citric Acid: together they are what make bath bombs fizz - just a simple chemical reaction. But they also help to deodorize, cleanse, and repair skin.
Sea Salt (in the therapy bombs): sea salt added to your bath water has so many amazing therapeutic benefits. Minerals such as magnesium, zinc, potassium and others are nature’s cure for a wide range of skin problems. Sea salt can even be drawn into the bloodstream to eliminate toxins and balance the entire body.
Cream of Tartar: cream of tartar is rich in potassium and can help reduce inflammation and joint pain. It can even help alleviate arthritis pain, inflammation and joint pain, and can even help with UTI’s.
It's also a hardening agents and helps activate the baking soda, making your bath bomb fizz even more.
Buttermilk Powder: milk baths are soothing for dry, itchy skin, and are beneficial for a number of skin conditions including eczema and psoriasis.
Surfactants. A surfactant provides bubbles and foaming. Our surfactants are mild and naturally derived from coconuts
primary surfactant: SCI (sodium cocoyl isethionate)(also called baby foam) - foam booster which produces a rich, thick lather. It’s extremely gentle and leaves skin feeling luxurious and moisturized.
secondary surfactant: cocamidopropyl betain - flash foam capabilities, and bubbles up quickly - but soon dissipates.
Unrefined Cocoa Butter: We use natural, unrefined cocoa butter in all of our bath bombs. Cocoa butter is an amazing moisturizer and packed with antioxidants. Because of its high fat content, it has a richer, denser feel than many other butters out there. Along with its sweet scent, cocoa butter has the ability to form a protective barrier over skin to hold in moisture.
Unrefined Shea Butter: Extracted from the nuts of the shea tree, shea butter is an all-natural moisturizer that restores the barrier between your skin and the outside environment, holding moisture in and reducing your risk of dryness.
Rice Bran Oil: rice bran oil is simply the oil extracted from the germ and inner husk of rice. It has been used for decades in Japan and China as a beauty aid. We love using this oil because it is rich in antioxidants, vitamins B and E, and is easily absorbed into the skin
Polysorbate 80: Polysorbate 80 is a water-soluble emulsifier and helps oil and color mix into the water rather than pooling on top. It also prevents oils from clinging to the tub, which is really important because oil on the bottom of the tub can make it slippery.
Fragrance Oil: We use skin safe fragrance oils at a safe usage rate. We only use high quality fragrance oils that are FDA approved, skin safe, & phthalate free
Kaolin Clay: kaolin clay acts as a hardening agent for bath bombs, but more importantly it removes impurities and soothes the skin.
FD&C Dyes and Lakes: FD&C stands for The Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. All dye batches made for FD&C use have to be tested to meet the minimum purity standards. If a batch passes that test, then it becomes certified and sold as an FD&C grade dye. After it’s certified, the dye has to follow the guidelines created by the FDA. We make sure to use FDA approved and certified dyes and lakes from trusted suppliers.
Soaking in beautifully colored water has a positive psychological effect
Mica: We mainly use mica to airbrush color onto the top of our bath bombs. Mica is a fine powder coated with pigments and has a shimmer effect.
