Fizzy Fun and Fragrant Delights
Bath bombs crackle, fizz and hiss upon contact with water while leaving a trail of colour and glitter in their wake. Despite having been around for nearly thirty years, these fun and colourful bath products are more popular than ever. Celebrities love them, they pop up in social media feeds and chemists regularly find themselves having to restock on supplies.
What is it with these fun and fizzy bath-time treats, and why are we so obsessed with them?
The Bath Bomb Goes Off
It all started with Lush Cosmetics back in 1988. While Lush was still a mail order company with a small warehouse in Poole in Dorset, the company’s founders were busy tinkering around and developing new products. It was then that the bath bomb was born. A compact package of bicarbonate of soda, citric acid, colourings, natural butters and essential oils, the mighty bath bomb is a fun alternative to bubble bath and provides the skin with just as many, if not more, benefits.
However, the idea of adding fizzy salts to bathwater isn’t a new concept: bath salts have been around since the early 20th century. It was by packing fizzy bath salts into a tight ball and adding moisturising ingredients and natural fragrances to the mix that a cult product was born.
Today, Lush’s bath bombs come in a a variety of colours and fragrances. The ingredients gently moisturise while cleansing, leaving skin supple, soft and delicately scented.
A Bath Time Cult
Since bath bombs hit the market in the late 1980s, their popularity has shown no signs of abating. The fun fizzies are, in fact, more popular than ever. To this day, bath bombs are among Lush’s bestselling products. In 2017 alone, the company sold approximately 13 million of these bath fancies.
But Lush are not the only company to produce bath bombs. As devotees of the product are undoubtedly aware of, a whole host of companies has jumped on the fizzy bath bandwagon, producing a wide array of different bath blasters.
Some of these bath bombs contain glitter or tiny trinkets while others come in fanciful and elaborate shapes such as flowers, unicorns, cupcakes and superheroes.
Whatever your preference, bath bombs are here to stay. Join in on the fun and pamper yourself with a fizzy, indulgent bath-time treat packed with healing essential oils and natural moisturising agents.
