Can I wrap bath bombs in tissue paper?

Tissue paper is a traditional, eco-friendly, and fully recycle packaging option. Wrapping your bath bombs in tissue paper is a great, cost-effective method of protecting your products but with an added splash of colour.

At Transpack, not only is our wide range of coloured tissue fully recyclable, but it is available in 29 colours, so you’re guaranteed to find the perfect match to complement your product and your branding.

We recommend using crumpled tissue paper to wrap your bath bombs, as this acts as a protective cushion making them less likely to crumble. Discover more about our premium and diverse tissue paper range.

Whether you are looking at wrapping your bath bombs in cellophane bags, tissue paper or nestling them into a gift box to display, it’s important to ensure they are completely dry before they come into contact with any packaging.

How long do bath bombs take to dry?

Before placing your eye-catching bath bombs in any of the array of packaging options, it is crucial to ensure they are dry first to avoid any damage to the product or packaging, and to reduce the risk of any harm during transit.

After making bath bombs, we recommend leaving them to sit out overnight at room temperature before packaging them. If you want to speed up the drying process, you can put a fan on them – but it’s important to keep your bath bombs away from humid areas. Excessive humidity can cause your bath bombs to react and break down before anyone has had the chance to purchase or enjoy them.
