Bath Bomb Progress – Blogtober Day 3

I’m not really a bath person.  Every now and then, if I’m particularly tired or achey, I’ll luxuriate in a deep, hot bath with plenty of bubbles, but I’ve never been one for bath bombs.  Many of my customers, however, most definitely ARE bath bomb people.

I posted a while back (here) about my first foray into bath bomb making, and during the intervening months I’ve continued to perfect my recipe abd practice the process and, finally happy, I applied for a CPSR (Cosmetic Product Safety Report) to enable me to sell bath bombs last Thursday.  Now for those of you not in the know (or for anyone outwith the EU), in order to be able to sell any kind of bath, beauty or cosmetic product in the UK (and EU) you need to get yourself a CPSR for it. This needs to be done for every single product (and variety of that product) and isn’t cheap, so you want to be absolutely sure of your recipe before you put in that application.

These are what the final bombs look like. I was, admittedly, a little heavy handed with the colourant in this batch – I’m using these bath bomb colourants from Soaposh Ltd and they’re fabulously intense. There will be a little less going into the next batch 😀

Now, I just need to wait for the documentation to come through (it can take a few weeks) and I’ll be making some of my customers very happy indeed!

  1. My cousin in Bristol told me about those licenses you need. Wonder if it will be the same after “Brexit”?

    1. I suspect it will, in the short term anyway. “EU law will be transposed into domestic law, wherever practical, on exit day,” according to to the Secretary of State for Exiting the EU. What will happen after that is anyone’s guess!!
