It’s going to be a very short post because I already have a video tutorial on my Youtube channel on making Oatmeal, Milk, and Honey Bath Bombs.
I have another recipe on my blog which is very similar to the one that I am going to share with you now. The difference is that in my previous recipe I didn’t use any surfactants so the bath bombs would fizz down fast. I still love that recipe and it’s very good for someone with dry, irritated, eczema-prone skin but I also wanted to create a foamier and bubblier version so here it is.
285g Baking Soda
140g Citric Acid
10g Milk Powder
15g Cornstarch or Tapioca starch
5g SCI (Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate) – (SLSA (Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate )or SCS (Sodium coco sulfate) also work well in this recipe))
6g Kaolin Clay
5g Colloidal Oatmeal
10g Fragrance oil
10g-15g Natrasorb Bath (optional)
10g melted cocoa butter
5g Polysorbate 80
2g distilled water
2g Cocamidopropyl betaine (optional, substitute with more water)
SLSA and SCS will make more bubbles and SCI will create more foam. If you want to know why we use a certain ingredient and what it does for a bath bomb then give a read to my Bath Bomb Ingredients Post.

That is why, in my opinion, it’s crucial not only to understand how to read and use a formula… Continue reading Making Emulsified Body Butters With Different Emulsifiers
I often get asked about substituting emulsifying wax in certain products. While in many ways changing an emulsifying system can have a great impact on the final consistency of a lotion or cream, I found that in anhydrous formulations (body butter, body balm, emulsified sugar scrub) they mostly change the way the product slips on… Continue reading HOW TO MAKE EMULSIFIED SUGAR SCRUBS.

I’ve made quite a few cleansing products over the years, such as cleansing balms, cleansing sticks, cream cleansers, gel cleansers, cleansing oils, etc. However, the area of micellar water stayed undiscovered by me until I stumbled upon a video by The Institute of Personal Care Science where their creator showed how to make micellar water.… Continue reading Easy Micellar Water Formula: Three Ways
