Hi there Laurie!
I am trying to copy the lush bubble bars, basically solid bubble bath. It is a mix of bicarb, cream of tartar, SLSA, glycerine and colours, EO's to suit. It is a delicate balance. My first go was way too sticky, still worked OK, but needed a little more bubble. This batch may be too crumbly, I'll know when I get home today......

Me too! I think I am going to order the ingredients. My early summer goal is to perfect a bath bomb and/or bubble bar line. I working towards a spa in a box product group and need to add one or the other.

Does anybody have a good recipe for bubble bars? I've been wanting to make them too - my daughters just love Lush's bubble bars.

Never heard of them. Interesting concept. Lush is a tough cookie to follow. Great products, loyal customers. I wonder how the economy will effect them? I guess the rich who buy from them will always buy, but others may come to us little guys.
