Rhuby Bath Streusel
Mouth-puckering rhubarb, succulent strawberries, fresh lemon zest, whipped cream, & a splash of rosewater
My love of rhubarb is somewhat legendary among the vendors at our local farmers' market... As soon as the weather even begins to hint at spring, I'm there, scanning the stands & making pleading eyes at the farmers, begging for any inside scoop on when the first ruby red stalks will make their appearance. When they finally do, I buy it all. ALL OF IT. Great leafy tart smelling armloads of it. I make rhubarb jam, rhubarb crumble, rhubarb pie, rhubarb compote, rhubarb ALL THE THINGS. What we can't eat right away gets chopped & frozen for a few weeks, just until the first local strawberries appear, then it's off to the races again with strawberry rhubarb jam, strawberry rhubarb pie, strawberry rhubarb fool... you get the idea. Rhuby captures that bright red fruitiness of spring & softens the edges with rose-scented whipped cream & a sprinkle of lemon zest.
Bath lovers, rejoice! At last, a product packed with skin-loving butters plus all the fizz & bubble of your favorite bath bombs & bubble bars! Bath Streusel is a delightful mashup of bath melt, bubble bar & bath bomb, in your favorite Paintbox scents. Add a handful to the tub as you run a nice hot bath & watch the bubbles grow! Once in the tub, you'll get the benefit of water-softening baking soda & citric acid, plus silky arrowroot powder & a gentle surfactant. I add a ton of organic cocoa butter & mango butter & a drizzle of rice bran oil to pamper your skin, leaving you feeling undeniably soft & smelling fantastic!
Many bubble baths & bars use harsh surfactants to make big bubbles - great for washing dishes, not so great for your delicate skin. I use sodium lauryl sulfoacetate, a very mild, gentle surfactant that gives great bubbles without wreaking havoc on your skin.
This listing is for one 6.6-ounce jar of Bath Streusel, enough for 3-4 baths. It's blended by hand in small batches with no SLS/SLES, parabens, propylene glycol, -cones, animal products, coconut oil or shea butter (for my sensitive customers). Most of my fragrances are phthalate-free, too!
I pack Bath Streusel in a recyclable plastic jar, with all ingredients clearly labeled for your peace of mind:
Baking Soda, Citric Acid, Arrowroot Powder, Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate, Organic Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Fragrance Oil, Sugar-Based Decorations
Since I work in small batches, you may notice slight variations in color from jar to jar.
To prolong the life of your Bath Streusel, keep it tightly sealed & avoid introducing any water to the jar. A clean plastic spoon is ideal for scooping out just the right amount :)
Please use Bath Streusel within 3 months of opening, & discontinue use if irritation occurs. The butters & oils in Bath Streusel will leave your tub a bit slippery, so do be careful :)
