That's a nice video! I'm envious I can never get my bath bombs to turn out when I try to make spheres, the first one comes together but all the rest the two halves fall apart
mine used to do that, i think it was the corn starch. when i started out i purchased a few molds and a recipe came with them and required corn starch. after removing it i never had much of an issue and my bath bombs never flattened on the bottoms. also the consistency contributes to the splitting when i had those issues. and thank you for watching the video
No cornstarch in mine I'm doing a basic:
1c citric acid
2c baking soda
1/2 c kaolin clay
2oz cocoa butter
1 oz coconut oil
.5 oz fragrance
although I'm considering adding an emulsifier and a surfactant to them
have you thought about polysorbate 80 for letting the oils mix with the bath water easier? maybe that will assist in holding the mixture together.
Thats the one I'm thinking about, yeah, I keep thinking its a technique problem like I'm not pressing and twisting the right way, because as far as I can tell my recipe is sound, and it makes great little puck shaped bombs
