Is a Bath Bomb like Soap?
Lets start with what is soap? All Soap is made by combining Sodium Hydroxide (Lye) and oils like Sunflower and shea. Soap works to remove dirt from your skin, and some soap can even give you that ‘squeaky clean’ and itchy feeling by drying out your skin. Some soap is even made with animal byproducts like Tallow, sodium tallowate or antibacterial ingredients like benzalkonium chloride.
Bath bombs are primarily made with Baking Soda and Citric Acid, and supporting ingredients based on the manufacturer. Generally their purpose is to fizz, color to the water, moisturize your skin and add scent to your bath time. Moisturizing bath bombs like what we hand craft at WHOLEMADE BATH CO., are designed to moisturize your skin and make bath time fun and relaxing.
