When you put bath bombs in water, they give off a fizz, which is due to their ingredients – sodium bicarbonate and citric acid.
When these dry ingredients dissolve in water, they react and release carbon dioxide bubbles continuously over the next few minutes. This is when the bomb breaks apart! Other ingredients that might be included are soaps, oils, butters, mineral salts, fragrances, dyes, etc.
HOLD ON, WHAT?
Fragrances, dyes, artificial scents, and other synthetic ingredients can completely damage the skin and wreak havoc.
In fact, they penetrate deep and cause harm on a cellular level, and lead to serious health issues later on. That is why you should stick to using hypoallergenic and fragrance-free bath bombs only.
Why use hypoallergenic and fragrance-free bath bombs?
They are safe!
As is evident from the name, these products don’t contain any dangerous chemicals or harmful ingredients that might damage the skin or cause any kind of allergic reaction that could be fatal in the long run.
These usually contain ingredients derived from vegan and organic sources. They are cruelty-free as well, since no animal testing is involved.
While colours look very pretty and attractive, it means more chemicals. If you still prefer coloured bath bombs, opt for those that use natural ingredients to bring out the colours. Our Orange Fizz has yellow clay, Mint Fizz has green clay...
Fragrance-free doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy delicious scents wafting up from the water. These natural bath bombs release a lovely fragrance, but they are due to the essential oils being used. If your skin doesn’t take kindly to essential oils, you can always choose the Coffee Fizz Bath Bomb that isn’t formulated with those.
You don’t have to worry about the skin feeling itchy, red, or uncomfortable after a bath. Since these bath bombs are hypoallergenic, you not only feel soothed and calm, but the skin feels rejuvenated too.
At Bella Forever, our bath bombs are made with only 5 ingredients – we don’t use unnecessary components. They are 100% hypoallergenic and fragrance-free, so they are gentle on the skin. Feel free to browse at leisure!
