The stable mountain of bubbles in commercial baths come from sulfates. Fact is, you can't have those kind of bubbles without them.

Powdered milk is effective for creating some foam.

Not true. There are lots of materials that can produce mountains of bubbles without sulfates. Some of them are sulfonates, true, but there are still lots of very effective foaming agents that aren't either.

Coconut oil is suppose to cause large fluffy bubbles in soap. Try some Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate (SLSA) (derived from coconut and palm oil) to make bigger better bubbles perhaps??

Following.. Have yet to find a non sulfate way to make bubbles that last more than a few minutes.
Eta: for now we use a Castile liquid soap for bubbles. but I'd like to get away from it if possible.

SLSA isnt a sulfate and works out very well (I use it instead of the other) Here's a good read about it - http://slibeauty.wordpress.com/2010/...-sulfoacetate/

i have a liquid soap book checked out from the library that has some bubble bath recipes. I'll have to check that and post some information here later. I'm sure it can be done.

If I had a choice, I'd pick disodium lauryl sulfosuccinate (SLSS) over sodium lauryl sulfoacetate (SLSA). They're both sulfonate esters, they're both of fairly low solubility, so hard to formulate in liquids, but non-hygroscopic so easy to formulate in solids. But SLSS is a little milder than SLSA.

Here's SLSA's structure:

fatty-OOC-CH2SO3Na

SLSS is a mixture of:

fatty-OOC-CH2CHCH(COONa)SO3Na
and
fatty-OOC-CH2CH(SO3Na)CH2COONa

We don't know why, but it seems that having two ionized or ionizable groups on the end of the molecule (as SLSS does) make it more skin- and eye-friendly than having one (as soap & SLSA do).
