Harmful Ingredients Hiding in your Bath Bombs


Bath Bombs are a safe and natural way to enhance your bathing experience. Much like body wash, shower gel and delicious smelling soaps, Bath Bombs can take your self-care routine to an entire new level! But, With all that skin-loving and goodness sometimes comes bad, you have to know what to look out for. Let's educate ourselves on the harmful ingredients to avoid in bath bombs.  

What to Avoid in Bath Bombs

  • Benzene Derivitives
  • phthalates
  • Talc
  • Parabens
  • Artifical colorants

Bath Bomb's can be packed full of chemicals

1. Fragrance

To begin with, many bath bombs have the term “fragrance” listed as an ingredient. Make sure the company you are purchasing from is known to use essential oil blends ( which usually have less harmful chemicals )

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) doesn’t require companies to further break down what chemicals they use to add “fragrance” to their products.

“The Food and Drug Administration gives companies a labeling loophole for fragrances to protect a company’s proprietary perfume blend,” said Ziverts. “Therefore, companies don’t legally have to disclose any toxic ingredients lingering in their fragrance blends.”

Some popular fragrance additives are chemicals that have actually made the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) hazardous waste list.

2. Benzene derivativesfor instance, are a human carcinogen linked to hormone disruption and reproductive malformation.

3. Aldehydes present an increased risk of respiratory allergies, liver disease, and embryo toxicity.

4. Phthalates have been found to decrease hormone levels and sperm quality as well as being linked to obesity, ovarian aging, and some forms of cancer.

5. Talc, which has been associated with an elevated risk of ovarian cancer.

6. Parabens are known to disrupt the endocrine system.

7. Artificial dyes (specifically D&C Red 33) have been linked to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children as well as neuron damage and brain cancer.
