Who doesn’t love bubble baths? My apartment in Seattle has a wonderful tub for bubble baths, surprisingly deep, and I have had many a relaxing and wonderful bath there. The wonderfully energizing properties of Intimate Organics Orange & Wild Ginger Foaming Bath makes it a wonderful addition to any bathtime fun. However, don’t get duped into thinking this is a wonderful organic natural product.
Intimate Organics is tricky, with a name that has Organics in the title and the words Certified Organic on the bottom left side of the front of the label one would think their products would be 100% organic, but they’re not. They are made with 100% certified organic extracts, however, and are vegan, DEA- and paraben-free, and
It may be good in those regards, but being called organic and natural doesn’t mean it actually is. It boasts that it is DEA (diethanolamine) free right on the label and yet one of it’s ingredients is Cocamide DEA which is a derivative of DEA! It doesn’t contain DEA itself, so I suppose saying it is DEA-free isn’t completely a lie. To be fair, Cocamide DEA and other DEA derivatives are indeed safer than DEA itself, but they have still been linked to cancer and irritation like DEA.
It also includes sodium laureth sulphate, which is a poison and irritates the skin more than actually helping it. It gets rid of the natural healthy oils on our skin and then stays in our skin because our liver is unable to process it. Once SLS absorbs into the body it mimics the hormone Oestrogen messing with the body’s natural hormonal balance.
Unfortunately, sodium laureth sulphate is in the majority of bath products and even in things such as toothpaste. If Intimate Organics was really concerned about being all natural and healthy they would not include this, however.
Now, if you aren’t concerned about it’s ingredients than Intimate Organics Orange & Wild Ginger Foaming Bath would be fantastic for you. It can also be used as a body wash in addition to filling your tub with wonderful bubbles. It smells wonderful, a very natural orange scent as if you have peeled a dozen in the room, and that mixed with the spice of ginger makes the bathroom smell wonderful. I enjoyed the aromatherapy aspects of the foaming bath, even if the ingredients did not meet my standards.
