The base formula for our wholesale bath bombs:
Sodium bicarbonate- Most commonly known as baking soda, this reacts with the citric acid to create the fizz. This is what also causes the water to become so soft.
Citric Acid- This ingredient produces our highest fizzing bath bombs. Our citric acid is Non-GMO , USP food grade. Other companies, primarily in China who make cheap bath bombs use a lot of corn starch as a filler and substitute for the more expensive citric acid to make cheap bath bombs. Not only does that make a bath bomb that doesn't fizz well as you have come to love, corn starch also makes it very weak structurally, very prone to breaking during transit, a big disappointment to everyone. We use the optimal amount of citric acid for the best fizzing bath bombs and strongest bath bombs for transit.
Pure Essential oils and pure Fragrance oil- We blend fragrances using both therapeutic essential oils and pure fragrance oil to make great smelling bath bombs. All of our fragrance oils are Phthalate free, phthalates are like the MSG of the fragrance world, they make a scent stronger and cheaper but at a health cost to you. Our company has been a leader in chemical alternative bath products dating back to our inception over 20 years ago, we are very mindful of the risks associated with chemicals and strive to find natural alternatives to make truly beneficial products.

We use fragrance oils for a few reasons, one is sustainability, it takes an inordinate amount of plant matter to make a few drops of oil, essential oils deplete natural resources. Rosewood, Sandalwood and Frankincense essential oils all harvest trees to obtain the oil, so much so that they are becoming scarce. If the scarcity wasn't bad enough it also raises the price of the undiluted essential oils hundreds or thousands of dollars per lb, adding significant cost to the bath bombs and incentivizing further depletion of natural recourses.
Another concern with using only essential oils is that its a concentrated plant chemical with medicinal value, which is great on a person by person basis, we are huge fans but to sell them to everyone on the open market isn't a wise move. Strong essential oils can cause many allergic reactions. By analyzing and breaking down the essential oils into the elements they are composed of, identifying them and reconstructing them back in place with organic compounds, produces a more dependable fragrance oil for your customers. Focusing only on the scent structure that an essential oil produces makes stronger scents that carry over into a better aromatherapy, spa like experience for your customers. This all while keeping indigenous lands from being stripped. Well constructed fragrance oil can trigger the same aromatherapy actions in the mind, whether the calming of lavender or the invigoration of peppermint. We use a safe amount of essential oil for our scent blends to create the most authentic and robust scents, we don't make the laundry detergent smelling products that many other companies offer.
Food grade color and Oxides for natural bath bombs
Oxides and ultramarines (color pigments) used to be mined but the FDA intervened due to purity issues, much like our fragrance oils, cosmetic approved colors have been made using organic compounds under a controlled environment to make sure there are no contaminants. Iron oxides found in nature are often laced with toxic metals like mercury, arsenic and lead. Only synthetically prepared iron oxides are approved for use in cosmetics in the USA. FD&C colors are made the same way, to ensure there are no contaminants in food from color. Many of these food grade colors are also water soluble, very important for bath bombs or the color may not rinse away and you risk staining tubs, upsetting your customers. Food grade colors are the most stable for bath bombs, providing the best shelf life, herbs can interact with oxygen and moisture, deteriorating and looking quite bad.
We also use Mica, which is safely mined and then coated with FD&C (Food, Drug and cosmetics) colors to achieve the shimmer in bath bombs. This can leave a glitter effect on the user so its not desired by all but can make for an interesting bath bomb choice.
Various herbs can be used to naturally color your bath bombs, many of these do leave specs in the tub and can be a nuisance to many, others can be infused into oil for a light color without the specs. Always need to be mindful of the diverse allergies your customers may have and the shelf life you want your product to have when selecting herb colors.
