TwistED Science - Safety Data
At TwistED Science we take safety seriously.
Below are Material Safety Data Sheets which outline the safety of the chemicals we use.
Our Bath Bombs
As science communicators, we understand that some chemicals can cause skin irritations to children’s delicate skin so we have sourced our Bath Blitz ingredients from reputable and ethical suppliers and kept the number of ingredients to a minimum.
Fragrances are kept to a minimum- we suggest 2 drops only per mix when we are making mixtures with children to minimise any chance of irritation. We have chosen child friendly fruity fragrances.
Our Colours are Lake dyes and are diluted with water and sourced from a responsible supplier.
Natural and cold pressed avocado or canola oils are our oils of choice. Cold pressed oils do not use any other chemicals in the extraction process so are the best choice for topical use. They are used as combining agents and both are gentle and nourish the skin.
Corn starch is used in to help combine the other ingredients and to keep the fizzing under control to make the experience last even longer.
Other ingredients include Sodium bicarbonate and Citric acid which provides the fun Fizz!
Like many lovely experiences, we suggest that adding bath bombs to your bath should be a sometimes luxury and not an everyday occurrence to minimize the possibility of skin irritation.
Along with the pleasant scent and essential oils, Bath Bombs can also have a positive effect on our wellbeing.
In water, the sodium bicarbonate in the bomb reacts with the citric acid to release carbon dioxide gas. The bath bomb starts to break apart as this happens, releasing with it the colorants, fragrances, and skin-conditioning ingredients, like salts and oils.
