I use SCI (powder form, not the noodles) when I make bath bombs instead of SLSa. It's a little less expensive, and get the same results: slows down fizz and creates foam bath art. I save the SLSa for when I am making bubble bars (I don't get as long of lasting bubbles from SCI in those). I also use a little bit of Poly 80 to my oils, and use cream of tartar to help harden. Spritz with alcohol or witch hazel rather than dump in, how much you need depends on the humidity when you are making them as well as how much oil you added. And last thing, vanillin in FO will turn your bath bombs brown over time just like it does with soap!

No, I think it’s your recipe. Try a basic recipe without all the additives and very little liquid.

They already have a recipe and are trying to troubleshoot why it's not working. There are many recipes available here on this site as well.

Welcome to the forum. Please read the forum rules (stickies) and introduce yourself and tell us a little about you.
