SLSa-Free Bubble Bar – Lana Suhanich

combine the following 4 ingredients in a bowl and mix
  • 2 cups baking soda
  • .5 cup tapioca starch
  • 4 tbsp cream of tartar
  • 2 tbsp citric acid
In separate container heat up:
  • 2 tsp sodium lactate for 10 seconds
Add these next 4 ingredients to the sodium lactate and mix gently
  • 1.5 tbsp decyl glucoside
  • 1 tbsp glycerine
  • 3 tbsp coco betaine
  • fragrance (follow recommended usage rates)
  1. Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix well. You should have a crumbly wet sand texture that sticks together. This mixture will rise like bread dough.. Keep kneading it.
  2. Let it sit for a few minutes and knead it again.
  3. If your mixture gets dry give it a few spritz’s of water and keep kneading until the reaction starts to slow down.
  4. Add enough water to this mix to make a dough but not a sticky dough. If it gets to sticky keep kneading it until it starts to dry a little.
  5. When the dough becomes pliable and less sticky, separate it into 2 balls (I do not recommend more than 2 as this is tricky to roll) and color each ball.
  6. Every time you feel it drying out give it a few more spritz’s with water.
  7. Quickly flatten your balls into rectangles and roll. You may have to pat the dough down if it starts rising on you. This is a normal reaction due to the combination of ingredients used.This mix is going to rise…
  8. So after I cut my rolls, I lay them on their sides. Give them a light pat and shape them into circles gently pressing in the sides to make them a little more compact. You can leave them to swell as well.. They are a bit more crumbly though. If you set them on a tray to dry you can pick up the tray and let it drop flat on the counter to get them to drop into a cookie shape.

The pink ones in the picture were not rolled.. I put them in a blob on the paper and molded it into a log shape then cut and left them sit. They do take a little longer to dry. But they make FANTASTIC bubbles and are well worth the wait. Mine were completely dry in 2 days. I left mine out for 5 days before I did the video demo.
