Bath Bombs vs Bubble Bars


This entry was posted in bath and body, bath bombs, Bubble Bars, Natures Garden, Soap making supplies and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

Bath Bombs vs Bubble BarsBath Bombs vs Bubble Bars

We are often asked about what the differences are between a bath bomb and a bubble bar.  The short answer, you will get fizz with bath bombs vs bubble bars which produce foam.  However, below, we will go into a little more detail.  In addition, we will show you a couple of bath bomb recipes and bubble bar recipes.

Bath Bombs vs Bubble Bars: Bath Bombs

First, let’s take a closer look at bath bombs.  We will talk about why they fizz and how to make them.  So, learn how to color them, scent them, and create them.

Bath Bombs:  Why Do They Fizz?

First, let’s look at bath bombs, also known as bath fizzies.  I am sure you have looked at videos of bath bombs fizzy and creating beautiful colors and designs in bath water.  Well, do you ever wonder why they fizz?  A basic bath bomb is created by combining citric acid with baking soda.  Now, once that combination is placed in water, a chemical reaction is produced.  The product of that chemical reaction is carbon dioxide.  The carbon dioxide is what causes all that fizzing.

Bath Bombs:  How Are They Made?

Creating a very basic bath bomb is quite simple.  You simply mix baking soda and citric acid together.  Once you have mixed your ingredients together, you will begin to lightly mist the mixture with witch hazel.  Witch hazel basically causes the ingredients to slightly react, in the same way water would.  Then, the powders in your mixture are able to attach to each other, thus they can be put in a mold, and once setup, your bath bomb is ready to use.

Although that is all it really takes to create a bath fizzy, you can make it more interesting and beneficial.  Some will add oil to give their skin a little extra love.  Cosmetic clays can also be added to harden the bath bombs and provide your skin with extra nourishment.  The sky really is the limit from micas to herbs, and foaming agents to corn starch.  Of course, bath bombs can also be scented and colored.

Bath Bombs:  How Are They Colored?

We are often asked by clients, how they should color their bath bombs.  Since we carry several types of colorants, it can be a little confusing.  There really are a few ways you could color your bath bombs.  First, you could use Da Bomb Soap Dyes.  These are simply FD&C dyes.  Yes, they will work, BUT since they are water based, they will cause your bath fizzies a slightly activate.  I highly recommend the FUN Soap Colorants.  The FUN Soap Colorants are pigments dispersed in vegetable glycerin.  They stay vibrant and true to color.  They are my personal choice for coloring bath bombs.  However, you can also use natural herbal colorants.

To add color to your bath bombs, simply add the colorant right to your powdered mixture.  Then, use your hands to mix the ingredients together.  It can take quite a bit of mixing to get the colorant fully dispersed.  Of course,  I would highly recommend wearing gloves.  When using multiple colors, you would want to wear clean gloves for each color that you are mixing.

Bath Bombs:  How Are They Scented?

Bath bombs can be scented very easily.  They can be scented with either body safe essential oils or fragrance oils.  As far as the amount of fragrance oil or essential oil to use in a bath bomb, generally our maximum recommendation for fragrance oil is 5% in a body product, but when creating a bath bomb, we tend to use around 1%-3%.  Ultimately though, you don’t want to use any more than 10% total liquids in your bath bomb recipe.

Bath Bombs:  What Kind of Mold Should I Use?

As far as molds and shapes, you really have numerous options.  You can mold them in a round acrylic molds, place them in silicone molds, place them in a jar, or even scoop them!  In fact, bath bombs can even be formed with your hands, just like you would pack a snow ball.

Bath Bombs:  A Few Bath Bomb Tutorials

Below, I will give links to a few bath bomb tutorials.  I will link you to one of each type so, whether you want to mold them, hand sculpt them, scoop them, place them in a jar, or add a little foam, you will find something below.

A Few Bath Bomb Tutorials: Sphere Bath Bombs

First, we will talk about traditional round sphere bath bombs.  To the left, you will see our Sinus Relief Bath Bomb Recipe.  I chose this recipe because, not only does it use peppermint powder as a natural colorant, it also incorporates bentonite clay powder and cut and sifted spearmint leaves.  Finally, it is scented with Natures Garden’s Sinus Relief Fragrance Oil.

A Few Bath Bomb Tutorials: Hand Sculpted Bath Bombs

Now, let’s talk about hand sculpted bath bombs like our Camouflage Bath Bomb Recipe.  So, I know what you’re thinking.  That bath bomb looks round, why can I just use a mold.  Well, to get the army toy in there and the camo look, we needed to hand sculpt it.  You see, this bath bomb has an army toy inside that will come out when it is used.  In addition, we wanted to add camo colors.  So, the best way to create our bath bomb was to hand sculpt it.  Can you imagine, how much your kid would love this bath bomb with a toy that surprises him at bath time?

A Few Bath Bomb Tutorials: Silicone Mold Bath Bombs

Next, we have bath bombs that are placed in silicone molds.  Our Mother’s Day Bath Bomb Recipe is the perfect example.  This bath bomb not only uses a silicone mold, it also uses arrowroot powder and calendula flowers.  Lastly, we scented these bath bombs with Happy and Free Fragrance Oil.  The nice thing about a silicone mold is that it makes removing your finished product a breeze.  Just use caution when choosing your silicone mold.  If you choose one that has too much detail, it may not come through in your finished products very well.

A Few Bath Bomb Tutorials: Ice Cream Scoop Bath Bombs

This type of bath bomb breaks the mold, using an ice cream scoop to create our bath fizzies.  Simply, scoop the bath fizzy mixture just like you would real ice cream.  Give this Rainbow Sherbet Bath Fizzies Recipe a try!  This recipe uses our FUN Soap Colorants for a vibrant rainbow sherbet color!  But, it doesn’t stop there, it’s also scented with Natures Garden’s Rainbow Sherbet Fragrance Oil.

A Few Bath Bomb Tutorials: Bath Bombs That Foam

Now, let’s talk about a sort of bath bomb/bubble bar combo.  Ok, so while it isn’t really a combo in terms of creating a full bubble bath, it will produce a little bit of foam.  The foam is created by the addition of a foaming agent such as SLS, SLSA, or SCI.  Take, for example, our Foaming Rose Petal Bath Bomb recipe.  This rose petal bath bomb contains SCI, so, not only will it fizz, it will also foam.  In addition, SCI, or Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate is a gentle surfactant.  It will leave your skin feeling soft and silky smooth.

A Few Bath Bomb Tutorials: Bath Bombs in a Jar

Finally, bath fizzies can also be placed in a jar.  Then, you can simply place a few spoonfuls of the mixture into your bath water.  However, the mixture can also be placed in a disposable tea bag so you can add herbs without them getting in the tub and going down the drain.  For example, our Fairy Dust Bath Fizzy Recipe will show you how to do just that!  In addition, we added some diamond dust mica pigment to give the fizzy some sparkle and shine!

Bath Bombs vs Bubble Bars: Bubble Bars

Next, let’s look at bubble bars.  While bubble bars are not quite as popular as bath bombs, they are quickly gaining in popularity.  This leaves many people wondering exactly what they are.  While bath bombs fizz, bubble bars produce a ton of bubbles for a relaxing bubble bath.

Bubble Bars:  Why Do They Bubble?

Bubble bars are perfect when you are looking for the ultimate bubble bath.  But, why do they bubble?  The main reason is due to surfactants that are added to bubble bars.  For more information on surfactants, and to read our free class, click here.  Bubble bars contain ingredients such as Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate or Sodium Lauryl Sulfate.  These ingredients are foaming agents that produce the bubbles in your bath tub.  My personal favorite surfactant is sodium cocoyl isethionate or SCI.

Bubble Bars:  How Are They Made?

A bubble bar’s bubbles are created with a foaming agent, such as SLS or SCI.  However, there are several other ingredients used as well.  First, baking soda, corn starch, and cream of tartar are the powdered base of a bubble bar.  In addition, vegetable glycerin is added to moisten the ingredients, turning it into a dough.  Once a bubble bar is formed, no matter the shape or type, it will need time to harden.  It can take several days for the bubble bars to harden.  However, once they have hardened, they can be crumbled under warm running bath water and will create a bubble bath.  While it is a solid bar, it will create a bubble bath the same way a traditional liquid bubble bath would.

Bubble Bars:  How Are They Colored?

When coloring a bubble bar, you can use either our Da Bomb Soap Dyes or our FUN Soap Colorants.  Either one will work in a bubble bar.  Both will create a beautifully colored bubble bar.  In addition, you can add powdered herbs to naturally color your bubble bars.

Bubble Bars:  How Are They Scented?

Bubble bars can be scented with any of Natures Garden’s body safe fragrance oils.  We recommend using 1%-2% of the concentrated fragrance oil in your bubble bar recipe.

Bubble Bars:  How Do I Shape the Bubble Bars?

Bubble bars are formed, often times, into a rolled loaf, then, sliced like a loaf of bread.  However, they can also be hand formed into a variety of shapes.  You can create a unicorn horn, a rainbow, an animal, a flower, or even ice cream scoops.  The possibilities are endless.

Bubble Bars:  How Are They Used?

Bubble bars are very simple to use.  You simply crumble a bubble bar under warm running water.  Then, your bath tub will fill with bubbles.

Bubble Bars:  A Few Bubble Bar Tutorials

Below, we will talk about a few of the bubble bar recipes we have created.  We will talk about the scoopable bubble bars as well as one of our rolled bubble bars recipes.  These tutorials will give you step by step instruction on creating bubble bars.

A Few Bubble Bar Tutorials:  Scoopable Bubble Bars

First, one of our scooped bubble bar recipes.  The dough for these types of bubble bars are created just like any bubble bar.  Then, it is place in the mixing bowl.  Finally, it is scooped just like ice cream.  Then, the ice cream scoop bubble bars simply need time to setup before using them.  You can create our Galaxy Bubble Bars, pictured to the left, in this manner.

A Few Bubble Bar Tutorials: Rolled Bubble Bars

Now, we will talk about a rolled loaf bubble bar recipe.  This type of bubble bar is rolled out just like cookie dough.  You can create multiples layers simply placing rolled out layers directly on top of each other.  Then, you roll the bubble bar dough, in the same manner, you would roll up a pumpkin roll or a jelly roll.  Finally, you simply slice the rolled like just like you would a loaf of bread.  Once the bubble bar hardens, you can use a slice for your bubble bath.  To use your bubble bar, simply crumble a slice under your warm running bath water.

Hopefully, this helps to give you an understanding bath bombs vs bubble bars. Both have a wonderful and fun purpose but they are two different types of products.  If you are looking for even more bubble bar or bath bomb tutorials, click here.  You will find an array of recipes that you can create and use at home or for your business.

Then, add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients.  Next, mix the ingredients together.  I find it easiest to use your hands to mix them together.  You need to mix the ingredients together until you have a crumbly dough consistency.

Make Your Own Bubble Bars Mix Your Colorant

Make Your Own Bubble Bars Mix Your ColorantWe will be mixing three colors together to achieve a mango sorbet color.  First, add 6 grams of Nature’s Garden’s yelp yellow FUN Soap Colorant.  Then, add in 1 gram of jailhouse red FUN Soap Colorant.  Lastly, add 3 drops of the yellow oxide FUN Soap Colorant.  Mix them together to create an even color.  Finally, add the colorant to your bubble bar dough.  Again, I find it easiest to also mix the colorant into the dough with your hands.

Make Your Own Bubble Bars Scooping the Dough

Once you have all the ingredients mixed, you will leave it in the bowl and scoop right out of the bowl.  You want to push down and pack the dough into the bowl.  This will make it easier to scoop the dough.  As you can see it looks kind of like ice cream.

Make Your Own Bubble Bars Scooping the Dough

 

 

 

Now, once you have packed your dough down into your bowl, use your stainless steel ice cream scoop to begin scooping your ice cream bubble bars.  Scoop a bit of the dough into the mini ice cream scoop.  Then, use your hand to once again pack it in tightly.  This will ensure that the bubble bars hold their form when removing them from the scoop.

Make Your Own Bubble Bars Scooping the Dough

 

 

Finally, make sure your silicone mat or parchment paper is in an area where it will not be disturbed.  Then, press the button to release the scoop over a piece your silicone mat.  Repeat this process until you have used up all of your dough.  This recipe will create about 15 mini ice cream scoop bubble bars.  These ice cream bubble bars will need to setup before you can move them.  Leave them undisturbed for about three days before using them or packaging them.  The drying time can vary.  However, after a couple days you can check them to see if they have setup.
