Good Bubble bath products

Something I am very keen on for myself and my boys is avoiding as many nasties as possible.  One of those nasties is Sodium Laureth Sulphate or SLS.  SLS is a surfuctant which means it breaks surface tension allowing better interaction between the product and whatever body part you are using it on (hair, skin etc).  It also creates a lather.

SLS is found in many products from shampoo to mouthwash to engine de-greaser.  Now, many of us use products with SLS in with no issues, however, an increased amount of people suffer from skin complaints such as dry skin, eczema, itchy scalp.  If you do suffer with those, it might be a good idea to try and avoid SLS in your products because it can cause irritation.

I avoid SLS myself by using shampoo bars, alepo soap, crystal deodorant and mineral makeup.  I try to do the same for my boys.  When I was contacted by Good Bubble I was very keen to try out their products.

Good Bubble use Sodium Cocoamphoacetate and Disodium Lauryl Sulfosuccinate in their products in place of SLS.  Whilst they do the same job they are not found to be irritating to skin and are much more gentle.  You can find out more here.  Good Bubble products are less likely to be quite so foamy as products with SLS but that's not a bad thing.  In recent years we have been programmed to think that lather/bubbles = clean.  That is just not true.

Good Bubble products are 98% natural and full of antioxidants.  They also smell lovely!

So, how did they hold up in action?  Well, previously I was using Halos & Horns on the boys and I have to say we all much prefer the Good Bubble fragrance.  It's much more natural, less chemical smelling.  We were given a shampoo and a bubble bath.  You do get a lather with the shampoo, I find it lathers up just fine.  Because you don't get loads of bubbles it actually reduces the risk of bubbles in the eyes!

The bath/shower gel does bubble up quite nicely.  The bubbles don't last too long but that's mostly because my two use the bubbles up quickly by making beards.

Ethan told me he loves the smell.  He suffers from patches of dry skin and likes using products which are being gentle.

Great thumbs up from us!  You can buy Good Bubble products here.

  1. These sound lovely - my daughter occasionally gets dry skin, so I do try to stick to more natural ranges for her, but she loves bubbles. #triedtested


Thank you for leaving me a comment! I appreciate every one!
