Do you love taking baths, but does your skin feel dry and tight when you get out of the tub? Taking a hot bath can be relaxing, but it can also strip your skin of its essential oils. One young Michigan boy found a solution to this problem at an age when most of us where working on spelling and building forts.
For this month's featured brand, we're taking a look at Bizzy Fizz.
The Bizzy Fizz Story
In 2004, six-year-old Michigander Skylar Bisel developed Bizzy Fizz bath treats while completing a familiar home science project. Remember combining baking soda and vinegar to make a "volcano" erupt? While completing the project, he developed a recipe for fizzing bath treats, or fizzies, that dissolved in warm bath water. These fizzies contain a blend of natural oils, milk, butters, fragrances and other ingredients to nourish and hydrate the skin. After a year of research about the ingredients used in the bath treats and plenty of positive feedback from friends and family, Skylar and his mother, Laura, decided the product was ready and launched their family business. Almost a decade later, his bath treats made their way into the goody bags celebrities took home from the Golden Globe Awards.
Today, Skylar is the company vice president and creative director while Laura remains the chief executive officer, with operations remaining in Utica, Michigan. That's right down the road from the eVitamins warehouse!
What Makes Bizzy Fizz Products Unique
What sets this brand apart from others on the market? To start with, Bizzy Fizz uses only organic ingredients whenever possible that are never tested on animals. While preservatives are used in some of their products to prevent the development of bacteria, they're all paraben free. Next, products are made in small batches, which means you'll always get a fresh product. Skylar recommends using your Bizzy Fizz products within one year for best results.
A helpful tip from the Bizzy Fizz team: Be sure to use a nylon or another barrier to prevent any fillings from inside their bath treats from going down your drain, as this can cause clogging over time.
