Fizzy Fun and Fragrant Scents
Bath bombs crackle, fizz and hiss upon contact with water while leaving a trail of color in their path. Despite having been around for nearly thirty years, these fun and colorful bath products are more popular than ever. Celebrities love them, they pop up on social media feeds all the time and chemists regularly find themselves having to restock on bath bomb supplies.

What is it about these fun and fizzy bath time treats, and why are people so obsessed with them?

The Bath Bomb Goes Off
It all started with Lush Cosmetics back in 1988. While Lush was still a mail order company with a small warehouse in Poole in Dorset, England, the company’s founders were busy tinkering around and developing new products.

It was then that the bath bomb was born. A hard, compact package of baking soda, citric acid, colorings, natural butters and essential oils. The unique bath bomb is a fun alternative to a bubble bath and provides the skin with just as many, if not more, key benefits.

However, the idea of adding fizzy salts to bathwater isn’t a new concept: bath salts have been around since the early 20th century. It was by packing fizzy bath salts into a tight ball and adding moisturizing ingredients and natural fragrances to the mix that a trendy product was born.

Today, Bubbly Belle’s bath bombs come in a a variety of colors and fragrances. The ingredients gently moisturize while cleansing, leaving your skin smooth, soft and delicately scented.

A Bath Time Following
Since bath bombs hit the market in the late 1980s, their popularity has shown no signs of abating. The fun fizzies are, in fact, more popular than ever. To this day, bath bombs are among the bestselling products out there. In 2017 alone, approximately 18 million bath bombs were sold across the world.

But Bubbly Belle is not the only company to produce bath bombs. As devotees of the product are undoubtedly aware of, a whole host of companies has jumped on the fizzy bath bandwagon, producing a wide array of different bath blasters.

Some of these bath bombs contain glitter or tiny trinkets while others come in fanciful and elaborate shapes such as flowers, unicorns, cupcakes and superheroes. Always make sure they are environmentally friendly products.

Whatever your preference, bath bombs are here to stay. Join in on the fun and pamper yourself with a fizzy, indulgent bath-time treat packed with healing essential oils and natural moisturizing agents.
