Soap & Bath Bomb
This science lab is good, clean fun! Mold your own soaps and create fizzy bath bombs as you pretend to be a chemist for a cosmetics company. Learn all about soap and how it works to clean away grit and grime, discover how acids and bases interact to make fizzy concoctions, and explore the world of skincare as you conduct experiments and make bath and body products. You can even play around with the scent, shade, and shape of your glycerin soaps! Use this lab on its own or with other Ooze Labs kits (item #038232, #050927, #044325) to make a super lab station and feel like a real chemist! This kit includes non-toxic soap and bath bomb ingredients, a 24-page manual, and a lab station equipped with tools, test tubes, petri dish, molds, and sticker decals. Some experiments require additional supplies that can easily be found in most households. CHOKING HAZARD (1). Not <3 yrs. ~Rachel E.
It’s time to start mixing things up! In this pretend STEM scenario, you are a chemist for a bath and body products company and it’s your job to make and test different cosmetic products. Use the tools in your laboratory to employ different scientific techniques and essential chemistry principles to make soaps and bath bombs. Try out different additives to affect the color, smell, and other qualities of the products you make.
Real science and pretend play come together in this activity-filled kit that can be used alone or as an extension of the Ooze Labs Chemistry Station (a Parents’ Choice Silver Honor winner!). As you mold different glycerin soap shapes, you learn about the chemical properties of soap that help it pick up and wash away dirt. While you’re concocting bath bombs, you learn about how acids and bases combine to form fizzing reactions, and what a pH level is. Expand your cosmetics knowledge with an overview of the biology of skin care and other science related to soap and bath products. All materials and chemicals are non-toxic.
