Monkey Fart Bubbly Bath Bombs Ingredients
Baking Soda, Citric Acid, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Kaolin Clay, Tapioca (non-GMO), Coco Glucoside, Coco Betaine, Epsom Salt, Apricot Oil, Fragrance, Hydrogenated Castor Oil and Bath Bomb Safe Colorants (Lakes).
Baking Soda and Citric Acid
When you combine Baking Soda and Citric Acid, not only do you get delightful fizzing but you are actually softening the bath water. These two opposite ingredients, when combined, create Sodium Citrate. Sodium Citrate is a chelator. Chelators bonds minerals and metals and stabilize them making them unable to react. It deactivates heavy metals making them inert and the water softer. This lessens soap scum too.
Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate
Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (SCI) is the main ingredient in my Monkey Fart Bubbly Bath Bombs making the bath bombs bubbly. This is sulfate free surfactant is a very gentle bubbling agent often called “Baby Soft.” It is derived from coconut oil, a plant-based source and considered a vegan ingredient. The Derm Review reports that SCI is safe and it works with all skin types. The Cosmetic Ingredient Review Expert Panel determined that it has low irritation potential to the eyes and was found to not be sensitizing to the skin or produce phototoxic effects. Do avoid getting Bath Water in your eyes.
Epsom Salt is a gentle source of Magnesium which we absorb through our skin. Magnesium has many benefits including help to relax muscles.
Clay and Tapioca
Clay and Tapioca makes the bath water feel softer. Both of them are said to absorb toxins.
Apricot Oil softens skin.
Hydrogenated Castor Oil
Hydrogenated Castor Oil helps disperse the oils for complete moisturizing and makes clean up easier.
Coco Glucoside and Coco Betaine are bubbly ingredients too. They help the SCI be more bubbly. Mixing several surfactants together works synergistically helping make all of them more gentle.
Always look for Bath Bomb safe colorants, they have “lake” in the name.
Phthalate Free Fragrance
I always use phthalate free fragrance.
