Have you heard of a Vitamin C bath bomb? Vitamin C is often used in skin care products because it helps to even skin tone, reduces acne, and reduces age spots. Not only is Vitamin C great for your skin, but it also helps to lighten your skin. As women get older, many start to get age spots. And, lightening skin treatments can help with that.

Have you heard of a Vitamin C bath bomb? Vitamin C is often used in skin care products because it helps to even skin tone, reduces acne, and reduces age spots.

Vitamin C Bath Bomb

So, there are a variety of different ways you can make a Vitamin C bath bomb. Of course, your bath bomb will need to have other ingredients in it as well as Vitamin C. That way it will hold its shape in the mold. And, ingredients like buttermilk, coconut oil, and kaolin clay help to soften your skin. Learn more about the benefits of Vitamin C in this article.

One of the reasons that I love bath bombs so much is that they are an easy, inexpensive way to pamper yourself. Sure, you could go out to your favorite upscale beauty store and buy your bath bombs instead. But, I always worry about the ingredients in the bath bombs I buy at the store. I know they use artificial dyes and preservatives that I’d rather not soak in. This Vitamin C bath bomb recipe is loaded with good for your ingredients so you don’t need to worry about using them.

Are bath bombs good for you?

Bath bombs with health ingredients are definitely good for your skin. Ingredients like buttermilk, kaolin clay, coconut oil, cocoa butter, and beet powder all do awesome things for your skin. And the added essential oils are great for your mental health. But, using a bath bomb with less than quality ingredients isn’t as good for your skin. That’s why it’s so important to read the ingredients on anything that you purchase from the store.

If you’re looking for a bath bomb recipe without cornstarch, you’re in luck. This recipe does not use cornstarch at all. That makes it a great choice for those with corn allergies or who would prefer not to use a corn byproduct. 

How to make bath bombs for kids

There’s no reason that the kids can’t enjoy a bath bomb every now and then provided they use good-for-your ingredients. So, this Vitamin C bath bomb is a great choice. And, the beet powder makes the bath bombs a fun pink color.

Vitamin C Bath Bombs instructions

The number of bath bombs this recipe will make completely depends on which size bath bomb mold you use. This DIY shows 1 large and two small.

dry ingredients and a bowl

In a large mixing bowl, add the baking soda, buttermilk, arrowroot powder (this is an organic and eco-friendly starch) and kaolin clay. Whisk dry ingredients together.
Step 6: Add the coconut oil. This binds all the ingredients together, so you don’t have bath bombs that crumble. You can also use 90% isopropyl alcohol, but I feel the coconut oil holds the mixture together more effectively.

Add the cocoa butter. This gives your Vitamin C bath bombs more stability and hardens them, so your bath bombs don’t crumble when you touch them!

Add myrrh essential oil. Mix ingredients thoroughly. You may need to use your hands to break down any lumps and make sure everything is mixed in. The mixture is perfect when it holds together when you press it into your hands and feels like wet sand. Finally, mix in the beet powder.

dry mixture in a mold

Fill both sides of the mold with the mixture, press molds together and grind to remove the excess mixture. Gently tap each side of the mold to release the bombs.

Allow to dry a minimum of 24 hours. If your climate is wet or cold, allow an additional 24 hours. My rule of thumb is that when it is hard to the touch, they are ready for the tub! Store in an airtight container until ready for use.
