We needed major money to renovate and asked ourselves What Would Walter White Do? We thought selling bath salts was better than meth since I’m not a chemist and we’d prefer no jail time.
Albuquerque, NM (PRWEB) December 06, 2012
Great Face & Body, located at 123 Broadway Blvd SE launched a full line of cerulean Bathing Bad products. The bath salts, soap, lotion and body scrub are handcrafted with organic and natural ingredients. They are tinted with a natural blue dye inspired by Walter White’s blue colored meth made popular on the hit series Breaking Bad which is filmed in Albuquerque. Breaking Bad is currently filming their last season.
“We love the show and we have a few of the actors as skincare clients. Since we just bought an old 9,000 square foot building we decided we needed to ‘break bad’ so we could afford the renovations. We needed major money to renovate and asked ourselves What Would Walter White Do?” said creator Keith West-Harrison, “We thought selling bath salts was better than meth since I’m not a chemist and we’d prefer no jail time.”
The two store owners, Keith & André West-Harrison, have been friends with the shows Giancarlo Esposito since he came to the first Albuquerque Film Festival. “We are sad the show is filming its last season, but we know it will have great appeal for years to come,” said Andre.
Here is how the product is described:
Do you find yourself worrying about taking care of yourself or your family? Do you spend time during your tv show wandering around in just your underwear? Even had a plane crash over your house? Are you looking for better ways than a carwash to launder your money?
Then Bathing Bad is for you. We relax away the bad with every, long, hot, luxurious bath. We have to tell you these are for external use only. Not to be used with a shovel or a meth pipe.
All organic ingredients including the blue dye derived from red cabbage.
The bath salts is 8 oz and sold in a plastic bag to carry out the theme. Regular price is $15.99, but the product is on sale until Christmas for only $9.99. The body scrub was made for use in the shower is 6 oz with organic butters and oils for $18.99 but it retail for just $12.99 until Christmas.
There is also a chance for everyone to sell Bathing Bad and make money through the Street Level Dealer Program. The guys setup an online order tracking system, which gives out special URL codes that keeps track of the orders and pays a 20 percent commission monthly.

ENLACE Comunitario is a non-profit community based organization that provides needed services and advocates and engages the community to promote the rights of Spanish speaking immigrants victims of domestic violence.
In 1995, during a parenting education program, one of our participants was tragically killed in a domestic violence incident. Since that time, our team has focused on providing previously unavailable services to Spanish speaking victims of domestic violence. In the summer of 2000 Enlace Comunitario incorporated as a not-for-profit agency and broadened its mission to include advocacy for the rights of immigrants’ victims of domestic violence. Currently Enlace Comunitario provides direct services to approximately 600 families a year while affecting many more through its community development and outreach efforts.
