New Bath Products Range for Kids and Grown Ups

I've had some great feedback from mums about their kids actually enjoying washing their hands and wanting to have a bath now. I make homemade fizzy bath balls with dinosaur toys inside them (called Dinosaur Eggs) and I make soaps with no nasty chemicals. The main ingredient that children with sensitive skin seem to react to is SLS (sodium lauryl sylphate). My soaps do not contain SLS. They are glycerine based (vegetable sourced) and are therefore suitable for vegetarians and vegans. They are gentle on the skin. The soaps are in fun shapes like spaceships for older children and robots, butterflies and teddy bears for the little ones. Colours used are bright, so they are attractive to kids. The colours are EU approved colours and are safe for use in soaps and bath products. The whole range is on Instagram and you can buy from me at my therapy room or I can deliver to you at work or at home, if you live in the Islington area or work in London City/West End. The bath balls are 6cm in diameter and for grown ups, they don't come with a toy (sorry), but they do smell lovely, soften the bath water and they have a good fizz. Prices are £2 for grown up bath balls and £3 for kids ones with the dinosaur toy inside. Spaceships soaps are £1 each and the other soaps are 85p each. Contact me if you would like to buy any or see them before buying.
