We first launched the Eczema Honey Oatmeal Bath Bomb in November. Colloidal Oatmeal baths have been a tried-and-true method for alleviating eczema symptoms. The bath bomb provided a convenient and relaxing way to get these benefits without fussing with a bag of colloidal oats. Plus, we infused the benefits of honey, luxurious cocoa butter, Pure Food-Grade Sodium Bicarbonate and Citric Acid, and Witch Hazel into our formula for even better results.
The feedback we’ve received so far has been positive. But our support team and social team continued to receive the same question: “can you release a product for the shower?” The fact is, 90% of the population takes showers instead of baths. Furthermore, many newly built homes no longer come with baths. Frankly, we’d love to take more baths ourselves but often just don’t have the time.
This is our way to bring the benefits of the bath bomb to EVERYONE!
Designing the Eczema Honey Oatmeal Shower Bomb
While we were conceptualizing the Eczema Honey Shower Bomb, we knew that we could not simply take the same bath bomb formula and re-label it as a shower bomb. That’s not our style, and also it simply wouldn’t work. A bath bomb is meant to absorb while submerged in water. A shower is a completely different beast. We came up with our three design goals for creating the shower bomb: 1) It should soothe the skin 2) it should provide aromatherapeutic benefits 3) It should work well in the shower.
For its skin-soothing properties, we had to make adjustments to our formulation and the balance of the ingredients and essential oils. Since you don’t soak submerged in water while taking a shower, the formula had to deeply deliver healing benefits while simply allowing the formula to drip down your body. We made the necessary changes to ensure that the bath bomb provided enough transdermal skin benefits.
For the aromatherapeutic benefits, we amped up our mix of essential oils by adding Orange Essential Oil and Lavender Essential Oil. We think that you’ll be pleased by the aromas of these essential oils, all blended together with the witch hazel, honey, and cocoa butter. The new essential oils also provide even more anti-inflammatory benefits while giving you relaxing aromas to enhance your shower experience.
The last and most important thing is that the product has to work well in a shower. This took several design iterations in order for it to work optimally. We decided to make them small enough to fit into the palm of your hands to allow the shower water to flow onto the shower bomb and activate it. Once activated, it’ll fizzle up and provide a rich aroma, and then you use that cocoa butter and colloidal oatmeal and honey goodness to actually apply on the skin. We also decided to offer the shower bomb in a 5-pack for the extra convenience of being able to enjoy the shower bomb benefits more frequently.
Upgrade Your Shower and Bath Experience
Now, we offer a solution for both the bath and shower. The bath bomb is perfect if you have children that suffer from eczema and need to give them a gentle bath. It’s also great if you need to have some rest and relaxation for yourself (we know, you deserve a break!).
But now we also have the shower bomb which can be used on a daily basis, or any time you want to spruce up your shower.
We hope you like our new Eczema Honey Oatmeal Shower Bomb! If you have any feedback to share with us, we’re always happy to hear about it!
