    Default Bubble bath suitable for sensitive skin?

    Can anyone recommend a bubble bath that won't irritate a toddler's skin?

    We just use the big pump packs of sorbolene body wash that you get in the toiletries isle at the supermarket. Both DD and DS have had excema and its always been great! Just squiret it into the bath and swirl it around to make bubbles!

    I think you could perhaps use the QV body wash to make bubbles in a bath? Or perhaps a baby bath product? MooGoo have a body wash that might work although it says it doesn't create heaps of bubbles from detergents.

    We use pinetarsol solution, its not a bubble bath but it does bubble up with some effort, they have as much fun making the bubbles as playing with them. we tried lots of different ones but that was the only thing that didn't irritate

    The bubbles are created by sodium laurel sulfate which is a skin irritant but is in nearly all commercial body washes, shampoos, bubble baths and toothpastes. It's only purpose is to create bubbles.

    Look for products without SLS. Sukin might have a bubble bath? Or Gaia?

    Coconut instead of SLS is great as a lathering agent. Just look for a all natural or organic wash thats SLS free

    I use this on DD http://www.vani-t.com/Products/BodyShampoo.aspx - SLS free and use it as a shampoo too

    Im pretty sure these baby products (available at target) are nasties free too http://www.gaiaskinnaturals.com/

    Me too! Makes great bubbles, and doesn't seem to cause flare ups for us like regular bubble bath.

    Just so people are aware sorbolene cream is petro chemical based which actually clogs pores which does not allow the skin to breathe. So i *personally* wouldnt use sorbolene cream.

    We use Sukin body wash. No SLS. Don't get the kids one, the normal is better.
    It's $19.95 for about a litre.

    I tried many many products in the first year of DS's life (he has crazy sensitive skin), and the only think he didn't react to is Burts's Bee's Baby Bubblebath - available at some chemists.
