We care about providing you with better products and better ingredients, so today we would like to talk about enjoying a better bathing experience.
Seed recently launched Bath Blossoms, our fizzy new product that you drop into your bath for an effervescent spa like experience. How do our Bath Blossoms compare to the popular Lush Bath Bombs? We're comparing ingredients and it is really eye opening!
Here are the ingredients in the Luxury Lush Pud Bath Bomb from Lush:
Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Lavender Oil (Lavandula angustifolia), Benzoin Resinoid (Styrax tonkinensis pierre), Tonka Absolute (Dipteryx odorata), Ylang Ylang Oil (Cananga odorata), Cream of Tartar (Potassium Bitartrate), Titanium Dioxide, Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), Water (Aqua), Corn Starch (Zea mays), Lauryl Betaine, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Dipropylene Glycol, Propylene Glycol, *Linalool, *Coumarin, Fragrance, Red 28, Orange 4, Blue 1, Red 21, Red 27, Candy Holly Leaf (Sugar, Modified Corn Starch, Blue 1, Yellow) *Occurs naturally in essential oils
Here are the ingredients in the Seed Lavender Bath Blossom:
Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Butter, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Essential Oil
How Lush Bath Bombs and Seed Bath Blossoms are similar:
- Both products contain Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, and Zea Mays (cornstarch).
- Both of these particular products contain Lavender Essential Oil.
- Both products are round.
- Both products are added to the tub.
That, my friends, is where the similarities end. There are major differences between the two products, especially when it comes to ingredients.
How Lush Bath Bombs and Seed Bath Blossoms are different:
- Lush uses Sodium Laureth Sulfate in the Luxury Lush Pud Bath Bomb. Seed does not use Sodium Laureth Sulfate in any product ever. Sodium Laureth Lulfate, or SLES, is a detergent ingredient. It can cause redness, itching, and skin irritation in certain individuals. The main concern with this fairly harsh cleanser is the fact that it is often contaminated harmful Ethylene Oxide and 1,4 Dioxane.
- Lush uses Dipropylene Glycol (a solvent) and Propylene Glycol (can be irritating) in this bath bomb. These are both petrochemicals (derived from petroleum).
- Lush uses artificial fragrance in this bath bomb. According to a report by the National Academy of Sciences, 95% of synthetic fragrances are derived from crude oil and contain benzene derivatives, phthalates, and other ingredients which are believed to be carcinogenic. Read more on artificial fragrance here.
- Lush uses SEVERAL different synthetic dyes, including lake colorants (many lake colorants are animal derived) and colors which are derived from petroleum. They also add in candy decorations. Last we checked, candy didn't provide any skin care benefits.
- Seed Bath Blossoms only contain REAL essential oils and add-ins such as lavender buds. No artificial colors or fragrances EVER.
- Seed Bath Blossoms are simple, natural, better for your skin!
- Seed Bath Blossoms contain Grape Seed Oil, Shea Butter, and Cocoa Butter to pamper and nourish the skin, leaving it silky even after you step out of the tub.
- No mess, no stress with Seed! Nothing is worse than taking a relaxing bath and feeling AHH-calm only to look in the tub afterward and see a slimy mess of candy sprinkles and colors to clean up from that other product. How is that relaxing?
