Fewer, Better, Safer.
Bubble Bars products are formulated to use fewer and when possible naturally derived ingredients in order to make the products I always dreamed of seeing in the market. I do not believe we need, or want, to sit in a bath full of ingredients that are being used as fillers.
We carefully select all of our ingredients to create bars that are safe for you and your loved ones. Our ingredients must fit four criteria
1. No health risks associated with their use
3. Cruelty free
4. Free from palm oil
INGREDIENTS WE USE
Behentrimonium methosulphate (BTMS) is derived from Rapeseed oil. BTMS is a conditioning emulsifier. Specially created for hair, BTMS smoothes your hair and enables the water in your shower to mix with the ingredients in your bar to create a conditioner.
BUTTERS & OILS
We love to fill up our bars with organic oils and butters from mother nature. We always try to buy organic and locally produced when possible. The following butter and oils are used in our products: Argan oil, Cocoa butter, Coconut oil, Olive oil, Shea butter, and Vitamin E oil.
Soap is the result of a chemical reaction called saponification that occurs between lye and a type of molecule called a triglyceride (a fat or oil), where both substances are chemically transformed, creating soap. Neither of the original ingredients exists anymore. All the lye is consumed in the reaction. So, while soap is made with lye, it doesn’t contain lye.
Mica is derived from mineral sources. It is used for colour, so you can tell your bars apart.
Arguably the most enjoyable part of using Bubble bars – the scents of our products. We’ve custom designed our scents utilizing natural essential oils in addition to a carefully selected 100% toxin-free synthetic aromas to perfect the freshest notes with enhanced stability and safety. This combination allows our products to stay longer on your bath shelf while creating amazing aromas.
SODIUM COCO SULFATE
Sodium Sodium coco sulfate (SCS) is derived from coconut oil and is a milder alternative to sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS). The difference between the two comes from the mixture of fatty acids that are taken from the coconut oil. SLS only uses lauric acid which means an extra processing step and results in a product that is much harsher on the skin. SCS uses all the fatty acids from the coconut oil which means less processing, and a milder end product. So SCS does not contain SLS, it contains some (and the percentage varies) lauric acid, which is the bulk of SLS.
SODIUM COCOYL ISETHIONATE
Sodium cocoyl isethionate comes from coconut oil, so it's palm free, unlike many surfactants. It's a surfactant which makes things foam and makes oil and water mix together. It's also biodegradable and gentle on skin and hair.
Stearic Acid is a thickener and hardening agent. Stearic is completely biodegradable and totally safe for use on people and animals.
