Never Bathe boring!

Never Bathe boring!

The iconic bath time product range is going to more than double in celebration of World Bath Bomb Day!

Fresh handmade cosmetics company Lush is set to add 25 new and original bathing buddies to its collection. The new range is launching in celebration of World Bath Bomb Day – a day which celebrates Lush being awarded the trademark for the iconic bath bomb, which was invented by Lush co-founder Mo Constantine in her garden shed in 1989. Due to launch in South Africa in July.

Encompassing wellbeing, fun and fitness, predicted best selling products from the new range include an innovative new bath bomb designed for post-workout cold water bathing, a miniature solid shampoo bar tucked inside a baby bot bath bomb to help children love bathtime, and Lush’s first consumer tech product – the Bath Bot.

These 25 new products join existing fan-favourites like Toby’s Magic Cow – invented by a customer for her brother who was a big fan of cows and rainbows – and Intergalactic; the number one selling bath bomb in the world.

Charlotte Nisbet, bathing category lead at Lush, said: “From Queen Cleopatra to the ancient Romans, if we look to history then there does seem to be something to immersing yourself in water compared to just giving yourself a scrub down in the shower, and there’s a growing body of research on the topic.

“A 2022 study published in the Journal of Applied Physiology found that regular bathing at 40c for 30 minutes helped decrease sympathetic nerve activity, which provides physical and mental health benefits. Other research from Japan suggests that bathing can also help you to fall asleep faster, particularly in the winter.

“When we design Lush bath products, we aim to bolster those benefits with essential oils and other ingredients. Personally, I don’t think you can beat Deep Sleep bath bomb as a nighttime remedy, which essentially turns your bath into a giant cup of lavender and chamomile tea (although I don’t advise drinking your bath water…). In a shower, not only do you limit the time any beneficial ingredients spend on your skin, but you just don’t relax in the same way that you do in a bath. After all, who’s ever really relaxed standing up?”
