The bath bombs y’all have been asking for are finally here!
Each one is handcrafted in house and packed with skin softening olive + soybean oils as well as Epsom salts.
The trickiest part in formulating new bath bombs is nailing the color and fragrance combination. Only certain colors are approved for bath bomb use, and we have learned over the years certain colors will make scent fade quicker than others. We want all our bath bombs to smell wonderful, look beautiful and colorful and of course not stain anyone’s tub.
For the Bamboo + Teak we chose a soft gray color to match the bar soap and boxes. We played around with varying amounts of activated charcoal and matte black and chose the matte black to avoid staining and possibly drying out skin. For the Bergamot + Grapefruit, a former production employee came up with the fun idea of a coral grapefruit color. She thought it would be a fun pop of color after taking it out of the black box, and we agree!
Indigo + Rice took a few rounds to figure out. Our Chief of Production played around with a few color variations before settling on a beautiful deep blue. She used a combination of blue bath bomb powder color and matte black.
Spearmint + Eucalyptus we kept super simple and color free by adding the special botanical element of organic spearmint leaves.
We hope you enjoy these bath bombs! We would love to hear your feedback!
