So, the question became, what makes a bath bomb great? Well, it took a year of research and testing, and today we're proud to announce that we did in fact develop the world's finest luxury bath bombs.
Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) January 22, 2009
Beau Bain, French for "Beautiful Bath," today launched its new bath products web site (http://www.beaubain.com) bringing a new level of sophistication and luxury to the design and development of popular "bath bombs." Beau Bain has completely redefined the bath bomb by elevating the quality of ingredients, the complexity of the fragrances, and the sophistication of the design. Twenty brand new luxurious bath bombs are available in five themed collections including Spa, Fruit, Floral, Lavender, Ice Cream, and its marquee product the "Grand Collection" which includes all twenty bath bombs.
In addition to its new bath bombs, Beau Bain offers other bath products like luxury body scrubs, body washes, body crèmes, and lotions. Beau Bain markets and supports its natural, paraben‐free, eco‐friendly products directly through beaubain.com.
Bath Bombs, also known as bath fizzies, have gained in popularity in recent years, with numerous boutiques and national bath products chains introducing these effervescent bathing treats to millions of customers across the United States and Canada. Wikipedia describes the bath bomb as a 'form of bath fizzie, a bolus which, when placed in bath water, dissolves partly or completely and effervesces, also in some cases adding scent, color, and/or other properties or materials to the water.'
Like many founders of new businesses, Beau Bain's founder stumbled into the opportunity as a dissatisfied but passionate consumer of an emerging bath product category primarily referred to as bath bombs. "I quickly became addicted to bath bombs, using them daily, and as a result I tried all kinds of products that I found both online and off. And my conclusion was that there are in fact some good ones out there, and there are many more not‐so‐good ones, and I thought -- I bet there's a market for truly great ones!" said Kimberly Mitchell, founder and CEO of Beau Bain. "So, the question became, what makes a bath bomb great? Well, it took a year of research and testing, and today we're proud to announce that we did in fact develop the world's finest luxury bath bombs."
The Beau Bain Bath Bomb Difference -- Aesthetics, Ingredients, and Fragrances
You'd think something as simple as a bath bomb couldn't be improved upon, but Beau Bain has elevated the state of the art in this emerging new category in three significant ways. Specifically, the company's new offerings look, smell, and feel better on the skin than anything available on the market today.
Bath Bomb Ingredients That Make A Difference -- Beau Bain believes that how the bath bombs make the skin feel is even more important than how they look or smell, and uses several different oils, vitamins, and many of the bath bombs even include assorted clays, dead sea salts, and other unique ingredients that actually moisturize the skin. Many bath products on the market today are focused on the novelty and fragrance of the bath bomb, and this is often at the expense of the user's skin.
Fragrances That Relax and Reinvigorate -- The scents have been carefully selected and mixed for each bath bomb, and gathered in complementary collections, to deliver not just an appealing fragrance -- but a truly therapeutic aromatherapy sensation.
Aesthetic Excellence -- Ultimately beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder, but the company has matched the look and feel of the bath bombs with their fragrance adding actual floral petals to many bath bombs, clay with others, and coordinating custom color combinations that deliver an experience of luxury and relaxation, not frivolity or novelty. Further, the bath bombs are handmade, tightly packed, neatly manicured, and placed in breathable shrink‐wrap to maximize the preservation of the fragrance as well as the vibrancy of the bath bomb's colors.
Testing is a key component to bath product development at Beau Bain. Company Founder Kimberly Mitchell elaborates, "We've designed and tested our own recipes for nearly a year, making sure that in blind tests our products prevailed over market leaders. Additionally, we made our bath bombs more visually appealing than any we could find. We of course tested, tested, and tested our designs as well. The result of this hyper analytical and methodical approach is a 'state‐of‐the‐art' bath bomb -- one that is visually, scientifically, and experientially unequalled."
