Sweat-it-out Bath Salts?


Bath salts with capsaicin, an active heat-producing component of chili peppers, are our newest additions to the growing Japanese Bath Salts category.

The rather radical Japanese product names suggest that these bath salts create an intense heat and burning sensation, so we were very intrigued by the products. We also wanted to make sure product safety before selling them to our loyal customers. The last thing we want to hear is that these bath salts burned somebody's skin!

So, one of our staff who has a nice deep bath tub at home is trying out one a day. Dokkan Bath Salt 1oz and Kangeki Bath Salt 1.7oz have been tested so far. 3 more to go!
Although we were initially going to name these items "Sweat-it-out ...," we changed our mind because it turned out that these bath salts don't really produce a sauna-like effect unless water is super hot. It does smell like spicy red chili peppers when opening the package, so plenty of capsaicin is indeed contained, just not felt on skin.
Soon after sweet fruity & floral scent surrounds you, which is quite enjoyable. Overall, these bath salts offer you a pleasant bath time.
