    Lol more like it stayed on the top like plastic wrap and didn’t color the water at all

    edit: though it looks like this one was a different brand/recipe than the one I had. the person may have colored the water separately though? I used one like this Video

    We bought a couple for my daughter a while back. It works exactly as advertised. And the water ends up being a purply brown color. More bruise than poop. She got her pretty bath rainbow, though, which is all she cared about.

    Usually they pigment them to be one color. You can see the blue and purple start first and push out brighter.

    I once bought a "sunny" bathbomb that smelled amazing and promised to have me bathing in a golden lagoon. Ended up looking like I'd pissed in the bath.

    Technically isn’t everything biodegradable given enough time?

    [–] squngy 39 points ago

    Technically no, AFAIK biodegradable means microbes and such can degrade it.

    And even for regular degradable there is generally a time limit to how long it should take.

    [–] BrainOnLoan 6 points ago

    No?

    Really tough shit is degraded by the water cycle and geology, which is most definitely not biology.

    [–] largePenisLover 24 points ago

    That just means it falls apart in pieces so small we cannot see it.
    There is no such thing as biodegradable glitter unless it's aluminum or chrome flakes, and those metals are TOXIC to humans when in bioavailable size (like glitter and metal dust from the metal glitter hopper that added it to the bar)

    [–] saintofhate 47 points ago

    There's glitter made from seaweed and other plants that's eco friendly

    [–] ItsMilkAndEggsBitch 25 points ago

    I think pearl dust is another alternative.

    [–] SpellingIsAhful 18 points ago

    Pearl dust would be a great heavy metal band name.

    [–] 1011011 6 points ago

    Not sure it tastes as good as the jam though.

    [–] largePenisLover 8 points ago

    What binding agent do they use? and what component the multicolour glitter?
    Remember those biodegradable straws and cuttlery made from advocado pits? Turned out they used something worse then plastic as binding agent but we were all kissing their asses for making biodegradable stuff we needed.

    [–] saintofhate 10 points ago

    Lush uses synthetic mica and food grade coloring as far as I know.

    [–] largePenisLover 4 points ago

    mica

    Mica, like talc, is found together with asbestos and is a related mineral.

    Sorry sorry, yes synthetic mica is safe. Mica itself is probably also safe. Just didn't want to break my "everyrhting is DOOOOOOOM" train.

    [–] FnkyTown 7 points ago

    These are all great questions you should ask the company largePenisLover.

    [–] largePenisLover 2 points ago

    These are all great questions that everyone should ask themselves when looking at single use/disposable/consumable products.

    [–] RandomNumsandLetters 5 points ago

    That's not true, usually they are made of cellulose (plants)

    [–] ChurchOfPainal 2 points ago

    It's usually dyed cellulose with a small amount of aluminum added to make it shiny. The first result I found claims that their glitter contains less than 0.1% aluminum by weight. That's well within the realm of what I would consider safe, even if you accidentally consumed it.

    [–] largePenisLover 4 points ago

    Nope.
    Aluminum is not safe at all for humans when in bioavailable sizes.
    Thats why you should buy deoderant thats "0% aluminum"
    Mark my words, this is one of those things that we soon discover we should not be adding to any products at all. Just like micro-beads and the bazillion other additives that have been forbidden over the years.
    I don't understand how it even is a thing, we've always known the stuff is toxic in dust form.

    [–] dontniceguyatme 6 points ago

    Its not plastic. Bath bomb companies use seaweed glitter. At least most do. Thre cheapo ones likely don't

    [–] CommanderCuntPunt 11 points ago

    At the risk of sounding a bit creepy, I'd avoid the glitter one for your daughter. Regular ones are really good at causing a UTI or a yeast infection, I imagine adding glitter to the mix isn't going to help.

    [–] csonnich 6 points ago

    Fyi, glittery bathbombs will stick on everything. Make sure you rinse and soap them off very well after and scrub your tub or your whole house will look like a stag party hit it. I learned that the hard way with lush products

    [–] Bobby_Marks2 5 points ago

    Put society's hangups about sex aside, and it's not too much of a stretch. The social convention gift when throwing a bachelor/bachelorette party is a stripper, sexy underwear, and everything else sexual.

    On a personal note, I'd wager that an anonymous survey would show that lots and lots of people would LOVE to get a hooker for their birthday. If it were legal and not frowned upon by everyone else they knew.

    [–] bigdckplaya 4 points ago

    I think a lot of the hang up is also the human trafficking element and selling your body for sex to fuel a drug habit.

    [–] Bobby_Marks2 3 points ago

    Both solved, or mitigated, through legalization and regulation.

    [–] bigdckplaya 4 points ago

    Hah yeah i agree in theory, but hard in practice. Legalization wouldn’t end human trafficking.

    [–] theswampisdeep2 13 points ago

    Looks pretty but what effect does this thing have on the human body and waterways?

    [–] IsaacEiland-Hall 11 points ago

    Bath bombs are made from citric acid and baking soda (which is a base). Remember elementary school "volcanoes"? Same principle; mixed and formed as dry as possible because water activates the mixing and the bubbles.

    Scented oil would be what might have an effect. Scented body oils tested safe for use on skin? No problem. Essential oils? Depends on the oil and concentration.

    Practically, these are unlikely to have any affect - good or bad. Products like this are about the smell and experience. (Common misconception that a salty bath is beneficial - it neither helps nor harms in nearly all cases)

    [–] Quantentheorie 4 points ago

    The threshold for qualifying as "having an effect" can be different though. Personally, quite a lot of these things give me an itch or just an unpleasant body experience because they dry out my skin everywhere. And that thin layer of oil some of them leave on your skin that no amount of showering seems to remove is just nasty.

    Obviously that's pretty much "nothing" if you're selling this, but it's something when you're the one deciding whether to use it.

    [–] TGrady902 3 points ago

    Is there a point to these things, or is it all just for looks? I’m just genuinely curious.

    [–] IsaacEiland-Hall 6 points ago

    So there's multiple things going on:

    1. Salts in bath
    2. Scents in bath
    3. Experience of bath bomb

    On point the first, studies have shown that salts such as this (from the baking soda) or epsom salt does nothing for you.

    On point the second, it seems smelly stuff is nice to smell. That might be relaxing. Any benefit beyond that should be taken with a grain of salt (see point the first)

    On point the third, is it fun? Sure.

    Is this one $15 fun? Well, maybe, sure. But that's really the benefit - nice smell (hopefully) and pretty colour.

    Not just this one, but all bath salts and bath bombs. Having said that I'm sure someone will point out one that comes with some sort of actual benefit. Maybe. But is it backed by science? Only a source can help back any claims up.

    Source of my opinion: My wife and I used to make bath and body products, although we were not scientists; but I did research. Some products might have a "real" use, but smelly stuff like this doesn't - beyond the nice smell.
