  • SLS alternative

    Hi
    What can I add to bath bombs to make them foam/bubble, that isn't SLS? I'd prefer something natural if poss...any ideas?
    Thanks

    Hi,
    Maybe a stupid question but why do you want to make the bath bombs bubble?
    I would have thought you are making bath bombs and by nature they do not bubble, if you want something to bubble make bubble bath!
    How far you go in life depends on you being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.

      This is a hard question.

      I dont think there is anything, and you would want to make a bath bomb bubble - wants the harm in that - uh?

          There's Decyl glucoside or Coco glucoside they are both anionic surfactants but milder than SLS . There's also Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES), which is a milder version of SLS. Not sure who stocks them though.

              Thanks, I haven't made these before and just thinking through ideas. I know Lush do foaming bath bombs but use SLS I think.

              I didn't quite expect such a sharp response, are bubbly bath bombs offensive in some way

              May well think about bubble bath too, but still wouldn't want to use SLS as my sisters and nieces suffer from eczema.

              Cheers

                Hi,

                There are a couple of alternatives you can use - Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate and Sodium Cocosulphate - are both mild surfectants that work well in bubble bars.

                Not sure where you can get them in powdered form - you may need to contact a cosmetics ingredient supplier.

                Hope this helps
