Where are your ingredients sourced?
We source almost all of our ingredients from local or USA suppliers.
Meet some of our suppliers.

Which ingredients are organic?
Several of our ingredients are organic, such as our essential oils, butters, carrier oils and botanicals. You will find that our product packaging and website will discern which ingredients are organic with the label (*organic).
We believe in the powers of raw and unrefined ingredients as these provide the most powerful healing benefits to your skin. Most of our butters and several of our carrier oils are raw and unrefined, giving your skin the benefit of high amounts of vitamin A, E and fatty acid.
Do you source sustainable ingredients?
We love our Mother Earth and want to minimize our impact however we can in our day-to-day lives. Supporting sustainably sourced businesses means that we want these companies to thrive and become the leading source in their industry. By using sustainably sourced botanicals, oils, butters, salts, etc., we not only support our suppliers but we also supply our customers with the best ingredients we can. This loop insures our planets future, and that’s a beautiful thing to be part of.
Do you use preservatives?
Our current product line up does not require preservatives at this time.
How are your products made?
We are currently a small batch, women owned, handmade and homemade product line. All of our products are made in a small in-home shop in San Diego.
Why are your bath bombs slightly different sizes?
Our bath bombs are approximately 6.5 oz and 3.25 oz each, but vary in size slightly. Since we are handmade and a small batch facility, each bath bomb is uniquely crafted, which means you will not find one product exactly like another.
Are your products safe for all ages?
No, we do not recommend most of our products for anyone under the age of 6 due to our use of essential oils. We have child safe products, so please visit our Babe line here: https://beyoubotanicals.com/product-category/babe/
Are your products vegan?
Yes, all of our products and ingredients are vegan.
Do your products have a shelf life?
Yes, since we use mostly raw and unrefined ingredients, we highly recommend our products be used within 6 months of purchasing them. We try to keep minimal stock and/or make on demand, so that you are receiving the freshest product. Our powdered products have a much longer shelf life, up to 24 months.
Bath time caution
Since we use an abundance of carrier oils and butters, we urge you to be careful stepping out of the tub, as it can be slightly slippery.
Plant based ingredients are the perfect replacement for synthetic ingredients. Herbalism and natural based ingredients enable us to cultivate a holistic lifestyle, which is sustainable. Synthetic ingredients are not sustainable and they were not meant to be used on our precious skin. Not only that, but they are unsustainable for the life of our planet. If they are unsustainable for mother nature, they are not sustainable for us.
How to produce the most amount of bubbles?
Be sure to place your bath bomb into the tub when you begin filling to ensure the maximum amount of bubbles.
We want to conserve one of our most precious resources, water, which is why the majority of our products are made without water. Water-free formulations are more sustainable for the planet and have a longer shelf life, so you can enjoy to the very last drop.
Are your products cruelty free?
Yes, we never test our products on animals, only on willing friends and family.

Sunny San Diego, CA – USA
What if I don’t want botanicals in my tub?
We recommend putting your bath bomb, soaks and salts in a bath tea bag to contain the flowers. Simply use one of our organic cotton bags that each product comes packaged in, dump out the remaining botanicals and rinse out after each use.
Will your products stain my tub?
No, our products will not stain your tub or skin. Products with black lava salt will leave some activated charcoal behind, which can we easily removed with a quick wipe down or clean.
Are there any allergens in your facility?
Our products are made and packaged in a facility which also has tree nuts, peanuts and soy. We have a milk, egg, shellfish and wheat free facility. If you have allergies, please refer to our individual product pages for listed allergens under the ingredients section.
We carefully craft our products using all natural oils, butters, herbs, clays and botanicals; which include natural nuts, seeds and fruit. If you have any allergies, please carefully read the product label prior to use or refer to our website under the ingredients section.
If you are uncertain about a sensitivity, we recommend doing a patch test first to ensure that there is no reaction. If irritation occurs, please discontinue using the product.
Please consult your physician before using any products with essential oils if you are pregnant, nursing, using on a child under the age of 12, or have a medical condition. Be You Botanicals is not responsible for allergic reactions, issues derived from the use of products not described in application directions, or neglect to contact a physician prior to usage.
Where are your packaging supplies sourced?
We source our packaging from UCanPack, EcoEnclose, Elevate Packaging and Container And Packaging. All four companies are environmentally friendly and support our desires of a low impact product and business.
Is your packaging compostable?
Yes, most of our packaging is compostable. Our shipping supplies, boxes, filler, shipping labels, box stickers, pouches, sample packs, refills, labels, sticker seals, compostable bath bomb wrappers and belly bands are all compostable.
Our bath bomb belly bands and thank you notes are made of seed paper, so we recommend planting them in your garden to enjoy the beautiful blooms.
Our stand up clear refill pouches are all home compostable. Because of this, we don’t recommend they be used for extended storage. Upon receiving your refill pouches, we recommend pouring the contents into an air tight jar and composting the bag.
Our bath bombs come in two options – compostable wrap or plastic wrap. We highly recommend you store your compostable wrapped bath bombs in an air tight container or use soon after receiving. Our plastic wrap is made from Polyolefin (POF), which are nontoxic. They keep our bath bombs dry and prevent moisture in, extending the shelf life.
How do I plant my ‘belly band’ and ‘thank you’ seed paper?
We recommend planting your seed paper in 1/8″ of soil, watering it daily and making sure it gets full sun in order to bloom!
We source our seed paper from a small shop in New York. It’s handmade and made with Daisy seeds.
