Yes, you can use shower gel as bubble bath! To make it easier for you to keep your bathroom clear of clutter, we make sure that all our organic shower gels can be used as organic bubble baths too. Read on to discover how to use shower gel as bubble bath and discover which shower gel is best for your next soak in the bath.

How to use shower gel as a bubble bath

All Green People natural shower gels can be used as a bubble bath and will lather into a botanical bath soak when mixed with running water.

Most other brands will be the same. Simply squeeze a few drops of our shower gel under the taps as you run the bath to create your natural bubble bath. 



You can also blend our Alexandra Kay essential oil blends with our Scent Free Shower Gel to create a bliss-scented bubble bath which is perfectly tailored to your fragrance preferences.

Time to Sleep is delivers a soothing Lavender scent and is our recommendation for a relaxing pre-bed bath.

Build your best bath with our ready-made bath rituals

Best luxury bath products

Made with Neroli and Marshmallow, our Moisturising Shower gel is our finest fragranced bath wash and is the perfect choice for when you want to pamper your skin and your senses.

After bathing, give your skin a gorgeous glow by smoothing our silky Pure Luxe Body Oil onto the skin. Enriched with precious Pomegranate oil and delicate notes of Neroli, it elevates your bath routine to home-spa status and is best applied to skin that’s damp.

Best bath products for sensitive skin

If your skin is sensitive, stick to a bubble bath that’s made without soap, SLS or synthetic fragrance. Bath bombs often contain SLS so are best avoided!

If you think your skin could tolerate a tiny amount of essential oil you may want to combine our Scent Free Shower Gel with a couple of drops of an Alexandra Kay essential oil blend before you mix it with running bath water.

After bathing, always replenish the skin barrier with a body lotion made with plants actives with intensely hydrating, emollient like properties.

We recommend applying our Scent Free Hand & Body Lotion whilst the skin is still damp to lock moisture into delicate skin. Made with actives that intensely moisturise and support a healthy skin structure, it contains Squalane, Evening Primrose oil and Shea Butter.

The best bath products for pregnancy

We advise against adding highly concentrated essential oils to bubble baths during pregnancy but all our natural bubble baths are pregnancy-safe and our ultra-gentle baby washes can all be used as bubble baths by mums to be. Just take care not to run the bath too hot!

If the skin around your bump feels tight after bathing, nourish it using one of our skin-softening pregnancy products. One Balm contains Rosehip and Pomegranate oils and our Pure Luxe Body Oil is made with Pomegranate oil. These actives help regenerate skin and boost elasticity so are great for  softening, reducing the  appearance of stretch marks and calming itchy bumps.

Can shower gels be used as shampoo?

It depends on your hair type and the pH level of the shower gel but most high street shower gels should not be used as a shampoo.

However, our Green People for Men Energising Shower Gel doubles as a shampoo and can be used to keep scalps and short hair fresh and clean.

 

We’d love to find you the best natural shower gel for your bubble bath! For skin care advice that’s tailored to your needs, contact our customer care team on 01403 740350.
