We don’t want to spoil your enjoyment of sinking into a hot bubble bath after a long day or when you need some extra me-time, but did you know that your favourite mainstream foaming bath product may contain a bunch of rather unbeautiful ingredients?
We suggest checking the list of ingredients of your bubble bath and looking out for Cocamidopropyl Betaine on it. Cocamidopropyl betaine is a synthetic surfactant derived from coconut oil. It has been associated with irritation and allergic contact dermatitis, and these may be down to the ingredient itself or to impurities present in it, such as 3-dimethylaminopropylamine.
