Bath bombs have been popular for years as a way to add beauty, aromas and a dose of relaxation to a bath. Between the fizziness, gorgeous colors and occasional prizes inside, what’s not to love? However, experts warn that many bath products can have harmful ingredients, things like glitter, perfumes and dyes, that can cause UTI’s, yeast infections, and other health issues by disrupting the body’s natural pH balance and causing micro-tears in sensitive skin. The good news is that not all bath bombs are created equal: many companies make safe-to-use bath bombs with natural ingredients that won’t cause any harm. The easiest way to find bath bombs that are safe for use is to see which ones are transparent about their ingredients; look for products that use ingredients like Epsom salts, shea butter, and essential oils and avoid products that mention chemicals, scents or perfumes and anything with glitter.
