Ingredients

High quality, eco-friendly and safe ingredients are of the utmost importance to Batty’s Bath! We don’t sell anything that we don’t use ourselves – we like to be pampered and want you to be too! Below is a list of some of the ingredients we use in our products. Check our online shop pages for full ingredient list for each product.

How We Scent Our Products

Batty’s Bath uses 3 different types of oils to scent our products.
They include: Essential Oils, Natural Fragrance Oils, Phthatlate Free Fragrance Oils.

  • Essential Oils
    • Essential Oils are 100% natural and are extracted from plants, flowers, leaves, roots, barks, resins and rinds of some fruits. The Essential Oils used in Batty’s Bath products are therapeutic grade, 100% vegan, and are free of any synthetic compounds.
  • Natural Fragrance Oils
    • Natural Fragrance Oils are blended from essential oils, but because they are not guaranteed to be 100% essential oil they are called natural fragrance oils. These oils are completely natural and contain no synthetic compounds, alcohols or animal byproducts.
  • Phthalate Free Fragrance Oils
    • These fragrances are synthetic and are specifically designed for cosmetic use. Like the essential oils and natural fragrance oils, these oils are free of phthalates, parabens, sulfates, chemical sunscreens, petrochemicals, glycols, formaldehyde donors, PEG’s or PPG’s, DEA/TEA, 1,4 dioxanes and other contaminates
  • Aromatic Hydrosols
    • Aromatic Hydrosols are 100% natural. Also known as floral waters, hydrolats, herbal distillates, or aromatic waters. Floral waters are the condensate water co-produced during the steam distillation of plants. During the steam distillation of a plant, two complementary products are produced: essential oils and aromatic hydrosols. Aromatic hydrosols contain a lower concentration of aromatic molecules than to essential oils and they are very mild for the skin.

 

How We Flavour Our Products

  • Organic Flavour Oils
