What's different about Bathtub Bakery Bath Bombs?

Not to brag, but these bath bombs are awesome! Our classic bath bombs are 25% larger than most competitors, and are heavy due to the amount of incredible oils and salts packed inside! We tightly pack our bath bombs to make sure you are getting the most out of the product. You'll notice the difference and your softened skin will thank you!
All Bathtub Bakery bath bombs, are Cruelty-Free, SLS Free and Vegan.
At home care: At Bathtub Bakery we ensure all products are made fresh, and encourage you to use them fresh as well! All mini 'candy' bath bombs and classic bath bombs come wrapped in parchment paper and tissue paper so please store in a cool, dry place until you're ready to use! We encourage you to use these products within 2 months for maximum freshness, although can last much longer.
 
Please note: Due to the use of oils, your bathtub may be slippery after use. Please be careful exiting and entering the tub when using a bath bomb.

How many uses do you get out of one Bath Bomb?

Bathtub Bakery offers so many different options for shapes and sizing of bath bombs.  We recommend one use per bath bomb. Each bath bomb is specifically designed to provide the best experience to our bathers. If you would like to have multiple uses out of a bath bomb try out one of our Bath Crush bags! Bath Crush is the same great bath bomb mixture but all crushed up! This allows our customers to use as little or as much as they'd like in one bath! 

 

What are Shower Cupcakes?

Shower Cupcakes are essentially shower steamers with our own Bakery Twist! The base is made out of what a bath bomb is made out of without the salts and oils. Our Cupcake base and hand piped icing are both packed with essential oils so when water hits your cupcake, it will gradually dissolve releasing all of the chosen essential oils and fragrances into the steam of your shower! 

 Directions:

Place your Shower Cupcake on the floor of the shower and your job is done. I find near the back of the shower works best, but where it goes depends on the user! 

- Some will put the cupcake near the drain to get a stronger scent but it dissolves and goes down the drain faster.

- Some leave it near the back for occasional water exposure and scent. 

- If you have a shower with a built in shower ledge, feel free to put the cupcake on that and throw water at it whenever you want to release fragrance! 

When on the bottom of the shower, each Cupcake on average lasts between 2-4 uses. Water exposure varies how long each cupcake can last. 

Please note: The icing takes longer to dissolve and is hardened so it may take a couple of minutes to begin releasing some scent. Due to the high amount of essential oils used, shower cupcakes are for shower use only. Tub may be slippery after use, and they do look edible, but do not eat, or use on skin.

 

Why Soy Candles?

Why are we addicted to using Soy wax?

There are seriously so many reasons!

  • Our Soy candles are natural, biodegradable, cruelty-free, and vegan. 
  • It also has a lifespan up to 50% longer than paraffin based candles!  
  • Soy wax tends to also be favoured by environmentally conscious customers because it is not made from petroleum, like paraffin candles. Burning Soy candles does not increase the CO2 level in the atmosphere. Soy wax also does not emit toxic fumes! #LOVE
  • Soot should be avoided because it is unhealthy and can eventually coat furniture and walls. Soy candles produce about 90% less soot than paraffin candles! 
  • Please note, since each candle is hand poured so there may be small differences. We make all candles in small batches.

Donation Requests

Being a small business we get a lot of donation requests. Our donation policy is that we require 50% of the retail value. Meaning, if you would like a $50.00 gift box made up for your event, it would cost $25.00 etc. We do require proof of your event as well, whether it be a ticket or event page. If you have any specific questions regarding donations please reach and and we will be happy to address them!

 Allergies/Info

We understand that everyone's skin is different. In the event of a relevant allergy please contact us directly, or write in the special instructions box at checkout. We can not guarantee any product to be free of an allergen due to our production space, but we will always do our best and take extra precautions when making your order. If a reaction occurs, discontinue use of that product and feel free to contact us anytime! Sometimes a customer's skin is good with one fragrance oil and not another, and our ingredients list will just state 'fragrance' or 'perfume'. We can inform you on what that fragrance oil is called for future use! All products are made with every skin type in mind, and if you're feeling nervous - the best way to test a product out is to wet the skin, and put the product directly on that area. In most cases, if no irritation occurs then you should be able to use the product with no issues. 

*** All bath & body products made at Bathtub Bakery are intended for cosmetic use only. These are not intended to treat, heal, help or prevent any disease. **

Can you eat the products?

You know, sometimes the name can be a little confusing. Even though 99% of customers find out they can't eat any products, this is still a popular question and I always appreciate that, (even if people are joking). My goal is to make the products look edible so I love when people have to take a second-look! 

To answer this question though so we are all clear, (lol) all Bathtub Bakery products are for external use only.  #DoNotEat
