In today's newsletter: Bath Bombs are back, tricky lip balm tubes & a sale on natural Ere Perez make up essentials. 

B A T H   B O M B S   A R E   B A C K   ! ! !

We haven't stocked bath bombs for a while, but we're pleased to announce that they're back in stock and better than ever. Old style bath bombs are all fizz and no substance, but these luxurious bath cubes deliver so much more! We’ve combined the very best of palm oil free, naturally derived ingredients to ensure a deliciously satisfying bath experience.

Why have they been out of stock, you ask? 

Good question, but two main reasons:

1) Even the most experienced of bath bomb makers will tell you're they're finicky things to formulate and make.  They The old way of making bath bombsneed to be made in small batches as they're sensitive to moisture (could there possibly be an upside to this awful drought and low humidity?), so that makes them super labour intensive. They need just the right amount of activation (moisture) to hold together and a heap of pressure. Enter our fancy new pneumatic bath bomb press to help us with the hard yakka.  This press is connected to a compressor to give us heaps of pressure, making a long-lasting rock hard bath bomb.

2) We have longed to deliver a fun, safe, bubbly bath bomb but as natural skincare makers, we weren't happy with the sulphates and solubilisers typically used in commercial bath bombs.  As a result of a growing demand for naturally derived skincare ingredients, however, we now have access to options that deliver on bubbly fun and relaxation so we can get back to bath bomb making with a clear conscience.

Practice self-care with this creamy, luxurious bath bomb, designed to help you relax before bedtime or after a tiring day.

Place your chosen bomb into a warm bath and breathe in the divine scents and relax in the thick, luxurious bubbles that leave your skin feeling silky and soft. Lie back and enjoy the moisturising, relaxing effect that will help you wind down at the end of a busy day.

The essential oils blends are available in four options:

🛀 · Sleep Easy - with Lavender & Chamomile to promote the state of relaxation to enhance your sleep ritual.

🛀 · Beautiful - with Cedarwood, Ylang Ylang, Lime & Neroli. A relaxing floral blend that will have you blissed out in no time.

🛀 · Serenity - with Cedarwood, Orange & Rose. A relaxing woody blend that will help you gain a state of serenity.

🛀 · Wellbeing - with Orange, Lavender, Bergamot & Neroli. A perfect scent to help instil a sense of wellbeing.

Packaging is always a challenge. A tiny change can cause problems that have big repercussions with labels that no longer fit or worse - in this case lids that don't fit perfectly. We ordered 2000 lip balm tubes from a trusted supplier but we've been sad to find that there's been a very slight change and as a result the lids don't click into place properly, so don't stay on as well as we'd like them to. We're sending them back for replacements, but we had already made 200 lip balms before identifying the problem. 

So we're offering a Cacao & Mint lip balm tube free with every order until midnight Sunday 26th May. No code needed.

PS.  Any lip balms left from this promotion will be available in our sale section, so if Cacao & Mint is your favourite you'll be able to pop over there and stock up.

Product Review


Favourite Hand Wash!

This is my favourite hand wash product of all time. All natural ingredients and it keeps your hand soft and hydrated after use, especially during winter weather - no cracked or dried hands ever. Safe on kids too! This is my favourite scent.

At Washpool

Melissa has been in the lab a lot over the past few weeks. She's enrolled in not one but two cosmetic chemistry courses and is experimenting with lots of new products. 

We've been making some new hydrosols for a facial spritz and infusing oils with herbs for salves, which has been pretty exciting.

If you've read this far looking for a weather update - we're sad to say there's been no rain to report. We're still watching the skies in hope.

The Washpool Difference

Washpool is a small rural soaperie in Ballandean, Queensland. We believe in being small enough to listen and being big enough to deliver. We believe in hand made and we take pleasure in providing meaningful employment to people living in our rural community. 

We take a minimalist approach to handcrafting our soap bars. Wholesome ingredients, purposefully selected. We believe that health comes first and beauty follows. Our 
clients value authenticity, simplicity and purity.

Wherever possible, we choose to source our ingredients locally, often direct from the growers.  When we purchase ingredients from further afield we place great emphasis on using ethical, organic, fair trade and sustainably produced raw ingredients. Our packaging is biodegradable, recycled and recyclable where possible.

Our products include cold pressed edible oils,
butters and milks, extracts, infusions, activated and whole botanicals along with clays, honey, fruit and vegetables. Basically, ingredients
you can recognise, most of which are edible.
