Sodium Lauryl Sulfate: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate is a chemical additive used to increase lather and foam in your toiletry products. Our SLS is a dry powder that is used in the cosmetic industry in many products including toothpaste! You can add this to your bath salts, liquid soaps, or - our favorite - bath fizzies! To make Bubble Bath Bombs we like to add about 10% by weight to the recipe. Just blend it in well with the other dry ingredients. We do not recommend this SLS as a Melt and Pour additive (it does not mix in very well).
Please note: Our new and improved SLS is a coarser grain, so it won't float around in the air in your workspace as much. The new formulation is an off white color.

I have made bubble bars with SLSA and they always turn out great. I decided to order some SLA due to it being less expensive. I noticed that it had a lot of beady chunks in it that wouldn't go through a sifter. The dough came out really really wet. I Tried two batches and they turned out that way. I was wondering if I just got a bad batch? I
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Stephanie! I'm sorry you were disappointed in this product, though you did not get a bad batch. As noted on the product page, our Sodium Lauryl Sulfate is a coarser grain. This is so it won't float around in the air in your workspace as much as the finer SLS. If your Bubble Bar dough turned out too wet that can definitely be fixed. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees F then turn it off and stick your bubble bars in for about 15 minutes.
Hi, I tried the SLS and SLSA with your recipe on Solid Bubble Bars. I didn't quite like using SLS and SLSA ... are there any alternatives besides them?
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi there! You can use either SLS or SLSA for the Solid Bubble Bars! Though, there isn't really an alternative to them. You can leave that as an ingredient out but your bars would not have their bubbles. I will email you personally to discuss this further.
Hi, I am new to bath product creation. We had a friend who wanted your cupcake bath truffle turned into a soap. My daughter and I tried some goats milk base, SLS, and snicker-doodle FO, with some coloring and your pink salts as a compromise experiment. It seemed to work. Is there a reason why you don't recommend adding sls to melt and pour?

Hi Marissa! I'm glad that recipe worked out for you! We don't recommend adding it to our melt and pour bases because it doesn't mix in well. If you want some great bubbles, you may like our Shaving Melt and Pour Base.
Hi I was wondering why you use Sls... Isn't it suppose to be harmful especially for children? how does it improve the fizzy? Just curious, are there any alternatives?

Hi Sabrina! Thanks for the comment and concern about the SLS. We have found from long-term study and research that SLS is safe for the body and not everyone is as super sensitive to it. We would never carry anything that we didn't believe to be safe for our customers. We have found that the SLS makes really stable bubbles in bath fizzies, liquid soaps and more. If you find that the SLS doesn't work for you, we suggest trying out our natural alternative,
which is derived from Coconut and Palm Oils in your liquid soaps, bubble baths and bath fizzies!
