Colloidal Oatmeal Bath Truffle Bath Bomb
Colloidal Oatmeal Bath Truffle Bath Bomb
Here at Mermaids and Seashells, it's all about spending quality time in the bathtub. My Oatmeal Bath Bomb is truly a Bath Truffle and it's extra special! I did much research on this and came up with the right combination of oils and butters for moisturizing, Colloidal Oatmeal to help soothe dry itchy skin and a fragrance that is appealing to just about everyone- French Vanilla. This is a luxurious bath truffle bath bomb that will put a smile on your face and have you talking to your friends about the best bath experience you've ever had!
I make these Oatmeal Bath Bombs in different shapes - each bath bomb is enough for 2 baths! Simply cut in half and use one part now and one part later.
Let’s face it, these little lambs are down right adorable! There’s also my Oatmeal Bar and Hibiscus Flower shape and occasionally I’ll make them in other shapes as well.
This makes a wonderful gift when paired with my Oatmeal Soap https://www.etsy.com/MermaidsAndSeashells/listing/484289965/oatmeal-soap/
and my hand knit exfoliating wash cloths https://www.etsy.com/MermaidsAndSeashells/listing/451314832/hand-knit-washing-cloth-trio/
You can see (read below) why I chose the particular ingredients that I did for this amazing skin soothing bath bomb. I've done my research, read up on all of the studies done on each item and I came up with what I call Heaven in a Bath Bath!

*Colloidal Oatmeal (avena sativa) -The Ancient Egyptians were among the first to recognize the skin-soothing properties of oats (Avena sativa), dating back to 2000 B.C. It wasn’t until 2003, however, that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration officially approved colloidal oatmeal as an effective ingredient to treat skin ailments, including eczema, psoriasis, and rashes. Oats are also a rich source of avenanthramides, a unique group of antioxidant compounds not found in other plant sources. Avenanthramides are the main actives in oats that reduce redness and inflammation, especially irritation from excessive sun exposure (UV radiation). In addition to its calming qualities, oats also act as a gentle exfoliator for skin, excellent for removing dead cells and revealing brighter skin that lies beneath.
*Cocoa Butter ( theobroma oil) - Has a high concentration of antioxidant compounds, including oleic acid, palmitic acid, and stearic acid. Although these are technically fatty acids, they are beneficial for the body, and help to neutralize free radicals throughout the body, particularly in the skin. By reducing the occurrence of oxidative stress, cocoa butter can help reduce the signs of aging, including wrinkles and age marks.
*Shea Butter- Shea butter is a skin superfood that comes from the seeds of the fruit of the Shea (Karite) tree and that is naturally rich in vitamins A, E and F. It offers UV protection (it is SPF ~6) and provides the skin with essential fatty acids and the nutrients necessary for collagen production. Shea butter has been used in Africa and other countries for years to improve skin and hair. The concentration of natural vitamins and fatty acids in Shea butter makes it incredibly nourishing and moisturizing for skin. It is often used to remedy dry skin and to help protect the skin’s natural oils.
A 2010 study found that due to its cinnamic acid and other natural properties, shea butter was anti-inflammatory. (source) One compound in particular, lupeol cinnamate, was found to reduce skin inflammation and even potentially help avoid skin mutations. This also makes it beneficial for some people with acne. Shea butter aids in the skin’s natural collagen production and contains oleic, stearic, palmitic and linolenic acids that protect and nourish the skin to prevent drying. With long term use, many people report skin softening and strengthening as well as wrinkle reduction.
*Avocado Oil- The beta carotene, protein, lecithin, fatty acids, and vitamins A, D, and E found in avocado oil help moisturize and protect your skin from damaging UV rays and also increase collagen metabolism. The beta carotene, protein, lecithin, fatty acids, and vitamins A, D, and E found in avocado oil help moisturize and protect your skin from damaging UV rays and also increase collagen metabolism. A 2015 study found that a topical skin cream consisting of avocado, tea tree, emu, and jojoba oils had positive antimicrobial effects. Avocado oil may also help heal wounds. A 2013 study found that the linoleic acid, oleic acid, and other monosaturated fatty acids in avocado oil can speed up wound healing.
