There’s nothing quite like slipping into a hot bath after a long hard day, especially when it’s a little chilly out. Maybe you’ve been hitting the slopes, the cross country ski tracks or heck — you don’t need an excuse. Maybe you just want to have a bath.
What you don’t want to do is worry about what’s IN your bath. You’re there to sit back and relax. Enter: The Better Bubble Bath.
Our bubbles are guilt-free, stress-free and come straight from nature. So what’s in our Bubble Bath that makes the bubbles last and last? If you’ve ever tried using just any ol’ liquid castile soap, you know that you need something special for a tub full of bub.
This gentle surfactant is produced through a chemical reaction between fruit sugars and ingredients in coconut oil, hence the name. Because it’s a non-ionic surfactant (we’ll explain) it lowers the surface tension between two liquids to actually keep them together. It also has foaming power.
This ingredient has the big guns — the big foam guns, that is. And it comes from some surprising, all-natural places. Coco Betaine is made by combining Coconut Fatty Acids with Betaine. At Rocky Mountain Soap Company we use a Betaine that is made from Beet Root. That’s right! We got the beet. These two ingredients combine for a luxurious natural bubble bath that lasts and lasts.
So that’s how we make those incredible bubbles, but you might be wondering what makes our Bubble Bath so skin-softening.
Vegetable-derived Glycerin, like we use at Rocky, is a humectant. That means it actually helps your skin to retain moisture. At Rocky, our vegetable Glycerin is derived entirely from Coconut Oil.
Lactic Acid at Rocky comes from fermentation of the sugar glucose in molasses (yum!). What it does for your skin as an ingredient is gentle exfoliation. That’s because it’s actually a form of Alpha Hydroxy Acid. It not only makes your skin soft but is known to promote collagen production.
So go ahead, sink into the tub and forget about your worries, and at Rocky you never have to worry about what goes on your skin!
