What is a Bath Bomb?

Bath bombs, also known as bath fizzers, are dry ingredients that are designed to effervesce once in contact with warm water. Once it hits the water, it releases essential oils, scents, colors, and bubbles to elevate your bath experience. Bath bombs can help condition the skin and soothe sore muscles. Additionally, they may help detox and relax the body and mind.   The great thing about bath bombs is that they contain the precise amount of oils and bath salts that you would normally have to purchase separately. Not only does using bath fizzers speed up the bath time process, but they make the experience so much better.  

How Bath Bombs May Secretly Be Hurting You

Although bath bombs can bring fun and color to bath time, there's a hidden ugly truth to the nature of bath bombs. Many of these products contain harmful ingredients that may discourage you from the tub altogether.

We've outlined a few of the ways bath bombs could be secretly hurting you below.

1. Talcum Powder Can Cause Ovarian Cancer

Talcum powder or baby powder is made from the mineral talc. This powder is an ingredient in many common cosmetic products. However, talc has been linked to an increased risk of ovarian cancer. Bath bombs that have talcum powder in them may increase this risk as a woman soaks in the talc-filled bathwater.

Studies going back as far as the 1970s have linked talcum powder to the development of ovarian tumors. Be sure to thoroughly check your bath bomb's ingredients for this potentially carcinogenic ingredient.

2. Perfumes and Dyes Can Cause Vaginal Infections

A slew of good bacteria exists to keep the vagina at a healthy 4 - 4.5 on the pH scale. When manufactured perfumes and dyes from bath bombs are added to the water you're relaxing in, there's a likely chance they will upset these good bacteria. Perfumes or dyes might inhibit the bacteria's efforts to maintain this already delicate pH balance.

Once the pH balance is thrown out of whack, women have an increased risk of developing infections such as vaginosis, urinary tract infections, and even cystitis. Using unscented bath products becomes much more appealing when the potential for infection comes into play.

3. Synthetic Scents May Be Toxic

"Fragrance" is a common ingredient listed on bath bomb packaging. In reality, the term "fragrance" may describe as many as 3,000 unlisted toxins. Some of these toxins may affect your health immediately or lead to long-term health issues.

When using bath bombs, the toxins in synthetic scents can be absorbed by the bloodstream. This can put you at risk for certain health conditions and diseases. Certain toxins may be especially hazardous for pregnant women and children. Some synthetic perfumes have been linked to the development of autism in children.

If you're in need of products that have aromatherapy benefits, look for ones that contain essential oils or other organic ingredients instead. These are likely to be much safer than the synthetic "fragrances" found in some products.

4. Bath Bomb Glitter Is an Environmental Hazard

If you're environmentally conscious, you should know that the glitter found in some bath bombs is made of micro-plastic -- a material that can't be broken down in the environment.

Although it poses no direct personal health threat, it can negatively affect the aquatic species that ingest these non-biodegradable materials. In turn, it may one day affect those of us who are higher up on the food chain, as these animals make up a large part of our regular diets.

How Often Should You Use Bath Bombs? 

As bath bombs don't pose any harm to you, it is safe to use them in every bath if you choose;  it is down to personal preference. 
There is no concern with using a bath bomb;  you can purchase as many as you want for the purpose of cleaning yourself.  The last thing you would want to do is to take the experience for granted by overdoing it.  The best results are gotten when you use these products, depending on how much your body craves them.  So, you can just head to our online store and shop for any type of bath bomb you want when you need it.
