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.

Who invented bath bombs

A bath bomb or bath fizzie is a consumer product used during bathing. It is a compacted mixture of wet and dry ingredients molded into any of several shapes and then dried. Bath water effervesces at the surface of a bath bomb immersed within it, with attendant dispersion of such ingredients as essential oil, moisturizer, scent, or colorant.

The original bath bomb was patented by the Constantines in 1989 under the brand name 'Cosmetics To Go'.However, when the company went into administration, the couple lost the patent. In 2014, a new patent was issued to Cosmetic Warriors LTD (the proprietor of the Lush Cosmetics trademark), protecting the process of creating a bath bomb with distinct layers.

what are the benefits of bath bombs?

1. bask in fragrant heaven with carefully chosen bath bomb ingredients
Take a few minutes of mindfulness to gage your mood, and then choose your bath bomb ingredients and aromas accordingly. For example, choose bath bomb ingredients that have an aroma of invigorating mimosa flower for a stint in tropical paradise, or an aroma of heirloom French lavender for a relaxing spa session.
2. smooth out dryness for hydrated skin
Once dissolved in water, bath bombs release citric acid which fizzes up and helps loosen damaged layers of skin. The oils in bath bombs also tend to be super moisturizing, and basking in a tub of hydrating oils will leave your skin feeling soft and supple.
3. say goodbye to soreness and relax your body & your mind
With smoothing properties and delicious smells, bath bomb ingredients work to help you relax. Beyond just the bath bomb, lounging in a warm bath itself for between 15-20 minutes can help you decompress after a long day. For centuries, people have been using baths for their beneficial effects on our muscles, and recent studies confirm that a warm bath can help soothe soreness and tension.
4. detox your skin and leave your bath feeling refreshed and renewed

The high alkaline content of sodium bicarbonate, the primary ingredient in bath bombs, makes it super effective in helping to remove toxins. The more common name for sodium bicarbonate is baking soda, which is famous for its many detoxing health benefits and uses. Bath bombs aren’t only therapeutic, but also contain cleansers that remove dirt and oil buildup from your outer skin layer. Renew your skin and let the bath bomb work its detoxifying magic!

Do Bath Bombs Expire?

Bath bombs have a shelf life of about one year. A bath bomb will last only as long as its composite ingredient with the least shelf life. It is true that a bath bomb has a scent as sweet as an air freshener, but if it does expire, it will start to its scents as well as its good looks and effect.
If your bath bomb starts to smell bad, break up or grow mold, it is a sign that it has expired, and you should learn to throw them out at this point.

How Do You Tell If A Bath Bomb Is Expired?

No one wants to use expired bath bombs on their sensitive skin as it could bring about irritation. An expired bath bomb will show signs like discoloration, having a rancid smell, or significant mold growth. Old bath bombs also lose their ability to effervesce when dropped in the tub as they lose carbon dioxide gas.
If you notice any of these signs, you should not use them as you run the risk of skin irritation. Bath bombs stay good with proper storage, but even with that, it still has an expiry date.
So, these are the ways to tell if you have an expired bath bomb;
Smells: Old bath bombs that have passed their expiration date might begin to have a chemical smell or have that rancid smell. If it has a weird smell different from its natural fragrance, then you should halt using it.
No Fizz: An old bath bomb will lose its fizz as its ingredients like baking soda and citric acid constantly lose a bit of their effectiveness as time passes and would not have the same reaction. The constituents mentioned are the real reason a bath bomb fizzes. If your bath bomb doesn't have any fizz in it, it is likely that it doesn't work as well as it should. So, don't use it to avoid being disappointed.
Discoloration: With time, bath bombs are known to change their shade or fade in color. The more faded your bath bomb looks, the more you are certain it has gone past its expiry date. It is important to note that you should not use a bath bomb that has really faded as it can irritate your skin.
Mold: Can mold grow on bath bombs? The short answer is yes. Mold growing on your bath bomb is a great sign that it is way over its expiry date. Most people don't know that it is dangerous to use bath bombs with mold on them. Bath bombs with natural ingredients like milk, butter, and oatmeal are more likely to be moldy. This can also happen if your bath bomb has been exposed to oxygen, mold spores, or water.
