Until about a month ago I hadn’t taken a bath in probably 15 years. But when we recently moved into a new house with a pretty awesome bathtub, I figured I’d better take at least one bath. One led to two which led to three and pretty soon I was on a hunt to find a great bottle of bubble bath to complement my new pastime. But here’s what I didn’t want in my bubble bath: a bunch of chemicals. If I’m going to be in the bath for at least 20 minutes…and have every square inch of my skin exposed to the ingredients, it could not be something like Philosophy’s Vanilla Birthday Cake bubble bath–with a smell I love but ingredients I hate:
Water (Aqua), Tea-Lauryl Sulfate, Ppg-2 Hydroxyethyl Cocamide, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Glycol Stearate, Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate, Sodium Chloride, Glycerin, Glyceryl Polymethacrylate, Fragrance (Parfum), Polyquaternium-7, Peg-150 Distearate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Citric Acid, Sodium Benzotriazolyl Butylphenol Sulfonate, Buteth-3, Tributyl Citrate, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Propylene Glycol, Yellow 5 (Ci 19140), Red 40 (Ci 16035).
This list prompted me to seek out an all-natural bubble bath, and I came across one from Soaptopia made with pure Essential Oil of Australian Eucalyptus. I poured a little of it in the tub, and watched the bubbles start to form. The bubbles kept coming and kept coming and kept coming. It was crazy. I’ve never seen so many bubbles in all my life. It looked like the kind of bubble bath you’d see in a movie. The bubbles were almost two feet high. I had to take my arm and shovel some of them down into the water so they didn’t completely engulf me. But I’ve got to admit, it was kind of cool. I felt like my two-year-old daughter. I was absolutely amazed by a tub full of bubbles.
All that to say, if you want a lot of bubbles…Allota Bubbles from Soaptopia most definitely lives up to its name! And the ingredients aren’t scary like the ones above. Soaptopia likes to call their products 100% JUNK FREE which I really like. Their bubble baths are sugar-based and contain ingredients such as organic dandelion, Vitamin E, Sweet Orange Blossom and Tea Tree, Borage and Olive Oil. So go light a candle and fill up the tub. If you want “allota” bubbles, try some from Soaptopia. Just remember that a little goes a long way.
