How are the products wrapped?
We use shrink-wrap for majority of our bath products, this means they stay fresher for longer.
We are getting many questions from people that want to know if it's recycled/biodegradable, the answer is YES, it is made from a corn-based polylactic acid (PLA) by EarthFirst that is fully biodegradable as opposed to the old shrink films made from petrol chemicals.
Items are then placed into cardboard boxes with bio-degradable peanuts for protection. if you would like gift wrapping please contact us after your order is placed.
Our plastic jars used for salts, skincare and body products are made from recycled plastics that go right back in the recycle loop, so while they are not biodegradable they are not made from 'new' plastic.
Our glitters are vegetable cellulose based so they are also biodegradable.
Do your products contain nuts?
yes, some of the bath bombs we stock do contain almond oil so cannot be use by anyone with a nut allergy. nuts ar epresent in our storage facility.
How long will my bath bombs last?
We recommend using the bath bombs within 6 months but they will have a use by date label on the back. The longer you wait, the more likely it is the bath bomb will be exposed to moisture in the air and lose some of its fizzing power. Both citric acid and baking soda have very long shelf lives, but the citric acid can lose its potency.
Potency is determined by MANY things but the biggest killer of citric acid is moisture in the air. The citric acid will eventually eat up the colour and scent molecules within the bomb, the scent will start to fade and the colour will grow steadily lighter.
Their performance is at it's BEST in the first three months. Shrinkwrapping/cello bagging bombs individually at the time of production can extend that to 6 months
What are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are organic compounds derived from plant sources such as roots, bark, flowers and seeds. They are complex chemical compounds and not technically oils at all! They are extracted using a variety of methods to capture the scented particles, leaving many of the other chemical constituents of the plant behind.
Aromatherapy is a complementary therapy based on holistic principles, using the application of essential oils to improve mental, physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. Oils can be applied in a variety of ways apart from massage.
How does aromatherapy work?
Most of the chemical constituents of essential oils have a molecular weight of less than 1000m (m = weight of molecule). Theoretically, any substance with a molecular weight below 1000m should be absorbed by the skin (Ref. Food Cos. Tox. 1989 v 27:479). There is controversy over the issue of skin absorption. Some parts of an essential oil can be absorbed into the skin, but there is no evidence to prove that it is then absorbed into the underlying tissues via the capillary and lymphatic vessels at the dosages used in ordinary aromatherapy mixes.
I have an existing health condition, is there anything I shouldn't be using in your products?
To be on the safe side, please avoid use of products containing essential oils if you have any the following conditions.
High or Low Blood Pressure
First Trimester Pregnancy
*If in doubt please ask*
Are your products Vegan/Vegetarian? Organic? Cruelty-Free?
All products listed on the website are vegan unless stated otherwise, please CHECK to ensure and if you would like confirmation please contact us. While we know the products are vegan we are not vegan certified.
While we do use organic ingredients to make our products, we are not a "certified" Organic company so we cannot make the claim in a product title that it is Organic. That certification is something that is paid for annually by companies and we choose not to pay some company to give us a label that doesn't matter. While we do use organic ingredients we are NOT "certified organic.
As far as cruelty-free, we have ALWAYS been that and it is EU LAW. Every manufacturer in the UK or EU must be cruelty-free by law. That means that any products and/or ingredients used in manufacturing must NEVER have been tested on animals at any time in their production.
This came into effect several years ago but became official 3 years ago. This used to be something that was used by companies as a selling point and some still do. The fact is it's already law and has been for some time.
While many bombs don't contain gluten. Period. Every product regardless of gluten-content is produced in a workspace where gluten is used so cross-contamination is always possible.
