This is a simple beginners bath bomb formula. I've worked over the course of about 2 years getting  a balanced recipe to ensure that the bath bombs get nice and hard, have good fizz, have a smooth finished looking texture, and don't get stuck in molds. This formula uses a natural alternative to polysorbate which is a sulfated castor oil to help the bath bombs not cause too much staining. It is pretty mild but everyone should do a small skin tester to make sure that it works for them without issue. The Turney Red Castor oil can be subbed out altogether if desired.
