Sodium hydroxide in soap making

In the soap making process, sodium hydroxide plays a vital role in a chemical reaction called saponification. Saponification is the process by which oils and fats combine with sodium hydroxide to create soap. While sodium hydroxide may sound intimidating, it is a necessary ingredient that undergoes a complete transformation during saponification, resulting in a safe and gentle soap.

During saponification, sodium hydroxide reacts with the fatty acids in the oils and fats, breaking them down and forming soap molecules and glycerine. This chemical reaction is carefully controlled to ensure that all the sodium hydroxide is used up in the process, leaving behind no traces in the final soap product.

Using sodium hydroxide in soap making allows us to create a beautiful, luxurious bar that effectively cleanses and nourishes the skin. Rest assured, the simple chemistry of saponification ensures that the sodium hydroxide is fully converted, making our soaps perfectly safe for use. We prioritize the safety and well-being of our customers, and each batch of soap undergoes rigorous testing to ensure its quality and effectiveness.

Magnesium Sulfate

Magnesium Sulfate, also known as Epsom Salt, is a key ingredient in our bath salts and bath bombs, offering numerous benefits and a luxurious experience for our customers.
  1. Relaxation and Stress Relief: Magnesium sulfate has natural calming properties that help promote relaxation and ease stress. When dissolved in warm water, it creates a soothing bath environment, allowing your mind and body to unwind after a long day.
  2. Muscle and Joint Soothing: The magnesium in Epsom salt is known for its ability to ease muscle tension and soreness, making it an excellent choice for post-workout recovery or to soothe tired muscles and joints. It can help alleviate discomfort and promote a sense of well-being.
  3. Detoxification: Epsom salt is believed to assist in the detoxification process by drawing out impurities from the body. It can help cleanse the skin and improve overall skin health, leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
  4. Improved Sleep: The relaxation properties of magnesium sulfate can contribute to a better night's sleep. Soaking in a bath with our magnesium-infused bath salts can help create a calming bedtime ritual, promoting a more restful and rejuvenating sleep.

Transform your bathing routine into a revitalizing self-care ritual, as you soak in the soothing waters and allow the stress and tension to melt away. Discover the ultimate relaxation and rejuvenation with our magnesium-infused products.

Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (SCI) vs Polysorbate 80

At Baroochi, we believe in using the best ingredients to create exceptional products for our customers. That's why we use Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate in our bath bombs instead of polysorbate 80. Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate is a gentle, plant-derived surfactant that helps create a luxurious lather and effectively cleanses your skin without stripping away its natural moisture.

Unlike polysorbate 80, which is commonly used in bath products, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate is milder and less likely to cause skin irritations or sensitivities. It is also biodegradable and eco-friendly, making it a better choice for both your skin and the environment.

By choosing bath bombs with Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, you can indulge in a relaxing and nourishing bath experience while knowing that you're using a product that is gentle on your skin and environmentally conscious. Experience the difference for yourself and treat yourself to a truly luxurious bath with Baroochi bath bombs.

Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate (SLSA)

SLSA is a natural plant-derived ingredient that we use in our bath bombs to provide a safe and enjoyable bathing experience.
  1. Derived from Coconut and Palm Oils: SLSA is derived from renewable sources such as coconut and palm oils, making it a plant-based alternative to synthetic surfactants. It undergoes a natural chemical reaction that transforms it into a gentle and effective cleanser.
  2. Biodegradable and Environmentally Friendly: SLSA is biodegradable and breaks down easily in the environment, posing no harm to aquatic life or ecosystems. We prioritize sustainability and strive to create products that are both effective and eco-friendly.
  3. Mild and Gentle on the Skin: Despite its strong cleansing properties, SLSA is considered a mild and gentle ingredient. It has a larger molecular size compared to other surfactants, which means it is less likely to penetrate the skin and cause irritation. This makes it suitable for even sensitive skin types.
  4. Non-Toxic and Safe for Daily Use: SLSA does not contain harmful chemicals or toxins, making it safe for regular use. It is widely used in personal care products and has been extensively tested for safety. We prioritize the well-being of our customers and ensure that our products meet the highest quality and safety standards.

Experience the natural and safe cleansing power of Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate in our bath bombs. Enjoy a luxurious and indulgent bathing experience knowing that you are using a plant-derived ingredient that is gentle on your skin and the environment.


At Baroochi, we are committed to using safe and skin-friendly ingredients in our products, which is why we use Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate (SLSA) instead of Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS). SLSA is a naturally derived surfactant that offers numerous benefits for both the skin and the environment.

Benefits of Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate (SLSA) over Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS):
  1. Gentle Cleansing: SLSA provides effective cleansing without stripping the skin of its natural oils. It creates a rich and luxurious lather that gently removes impurities, leaving your skin feeling clean and refreshed.
  2. Mild and Non-Irritating: Unlike SLS, which can be harsh and potentially irritating to the skin, SLSA is milder and more gentle. It is well-tolerated by most skin types, including sensitive skin, making it a safer choice for bath products.
  3. Environmentally Friendly: SLSA is derived from renewable plant sources, making it a more sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to SLS. It is biodegradable and does not contribute to water pollution, ensuring that your bathing experience is not only good for your skin but also for the planet.
  4. Enhanced Foaming and Bubbles: SLSA creates abundant and long-lasting foam and bubbles, adding to the sensory experience of your bath. It creates a luxurious and indulgent lather that makes bath time even more enjoyable.
By choosing SLSA instead of SLS, we prioritise the well-being of our customers and the environment. You can trust that our bath products, enriched with SLSA, provide a gentle and effective cleansing experience while maintaining the natural balance of your skin. Enjoy a luxurious and soothing bath with peace of mind, knowing that our products are crafted with your safety and the environment in mind.

Cream of Tartar

At Baroochi, we believe in using high-quality ingredients to create exceptional bath products, which is why we incorporate Cream of Tartar in our bath bombs. Cream of Tartar, also known as potassium bitartrate, offers several benefits that enhance the overall experience of our bath bombs.

Benefits of Cream of Tartar in Bath Bombs:
  1. pH Balancing: Cream of Tartar helps to balance the pH levels of the bathwater, ensuring that it is gentle and soothing to the skin. It helps to maintain the natural pH balance of your skin, preventing dryness and irritation.
  2. Skin Softening: The acidic nature of Cream of Tartar helps to soften and smoothen the skin. It can assist in removing dead skin cells and revealing a softer, more radiant complexion.
  3. Effervescent Reaction: Cream of Tartar is an essential ingredient that contributes to the fizzy and effervescent reaction of our bath bombs. When combined with other ingredients, it creates a delightful display of bubbles and foam, making your bath time a fun and enjoyable experience.
  4. Improved Texture: Cream of Tartar helps to improve the texture of the bath bomb mixture, resulting in a smoother and more cohesive product. This ensures that the bath bomb dissolves evenly in the water, releasing the aromatic scents, colours, and nourishing ingredients.
By including Cream of Tartar in our bath bombs, we enhance the overall quality and performance of our products. Enjoy a luxurious and indulgent bath experience with our bath bombs, knowing that they are meticulously crafted with skin-loving ingredients to leave you feeling refreshed, relaxed, and rejuvenated.
