Default SLSA in bath bombs


I've been making bath bombs for a few months and I'm looking to make them better. I'm wondering how much SLSA you guys add to your bombs.

My current recipe includes 2 cups of baking soda, 1 cup citric acid. Then my oil, fragrance, color etc. I'm currently using 1 tbsp of SLSA but I want more foam and for them to last longer. I tried increasing it to 2 tbsp but it didn't seem to make a big difference.

How much do you add to your recipe? I've added a picture of the result in hoping to achieve.

Thanks in advance !!

you are using the correct amount right now, more slsa and it will slow fizzing, more foam but they need to fizz

IMO, if I understood you correctly, the action you are trying to achieve is a product of the embeds and not the SLSA.
You can make embeds in different colors at a 1:1 ratio of baking soda and citric acid, so they "shoot" bubbles.

Like this in my video. Or is something else you are trying?
