Reader Request: Natural Bubble Bath

Reader Request: I know bubble baths are not usually recommended for women, but sometimes a girl needs her bubbles after a long, stressful day! Do you know of any nonirritating bubble baths?

Thank you SO much for your question!

This question is a tough-y because physicians typically warn women to stay away from bubble baths, etc. to decrease the risk of developing irritation or worse. If a girl absolutely has to have her bubbles though, my first thought is to head for the truly natural baby section. Many products for both children and adults are laden with natural and artificial scents, fragrances, and other additives that can be very drying and irritating to sensitive skin. Even products that are labeled “unscented” may still contain “masking agents/fragrances,” so it’s important to be vigilant about reading product ingredient lists.

California Baby Super Sensitive Bubble Bath – available at Target, Whole Foods, and other stores – seems to tick all the necessary boxes: no sodium lauryl sulfates, added fragrances, or masking agents. The website also specifies that the formula is “non-stripping of delicate mucous membranes,” “non-irritaing,” and “especially appreciated by women.”

Quick Tip: This type of bubble bath will not effortlessly fill the tub with mountains of bubbles like a more synthetic product will. You’ll need to pour a couple capfuls under running water, and use your hand to agitate the water to help create bubbles.

I haven’t used this product personally, so if you do try it, please let me know what you think of it 🙂

I hope this helps, and again, thank you for the question!
