Scrub-a-dub-dub, put some bubbles in the tub! Bath time is always loads more fun when there are bubbles involved. A winning bubble bath is gentle on skin (not drying) and will help you erase a day of finger painting, mud splashing and spaghetti eating. And, of course, it’s also full of soapy, foamy, toddler-approved bubbles.

When choosing a bubble bath for your kiddo, it can be hard to decipher all of the ingredients. How do you know what products are actually safe? The Environmental Working Group Skin Deep Database does a lot of that work for you. It breaks down exactly what’s in skin care products like baby lotion and shampoo and body washes, giving you the info you need to make an informed purchase. EWG researchers rigorously assess and rate product ingredients based on potential hazards and health concerns. The rating system works on a 1-10 scale from low to high hazard.

Ready for some good, clean fun? Try these favorite bubble baths.

Plant-Derived Goodness

Pediatrician- and dermatoligist-tested, parent-approved. The bubbles in Babyganics’ Baby Bubble Bath come from natural, plant-based ingredients that are extra gentle on skin and don’t contain parabens, sulfates, phthalates, mineral oil, petroleum jelly, artificial fragrances or dyes. And it gets better: the plant-derived fragrance is a soothing chamomile verbena scent, so you can have your bubbles and smell them too!

Nourishing Bubbles

Step 1: Create funny hair + beard with bubbles. Step 2: Rinse off to reveal soft, clean skin. Honest Bubble Bath’s super-foaming bubbles are made with organic ingredients like chamomile and calendula, plus jojoba protein and quinoa extract. Here’s what it doesn’t have: sodium lauryl sulfate, parabens, synthetic fragrances, dyes, formaldehyde carriers or monoethanolamine. This nourishing, tear-free bubble bath is a great choice for daily use. It comes in delightful three scents—Sweet Almond, Lavender and Sweet Orange Vanilla—as well as a fragrance-free formula.

Flower Power

This sweet bubble bath combines 100-percent natural, plant-based extracts like mango, quince and honeysuckle to create a lovely, bubbly bathtime experience. Tubby Todd products are designed to be extra gentle on sensitive skin, including skin that’s eczema prone, and they work for the whole fam (not just the little ones)! And like the rest of the brand, these bubbles are toxin, gluten, paraben, sulfate, artificial fragrance and color, BPA and animal-cruelty free.

Ethical, Empowering Suds

There are a lot of baby products out there that boast pure, all-natural ingredients, but how many of them can say they have those ingredients and use their sales to fund empowerment projects in impoverished areas of West Africa? Alaffia is doing just that—by partnering with community groups in Togo, they’re helping to provide eyeglasses, plant trees, fund education and support maternal care, all while making bubble bath soap that’s super gentle on sensitive skin, makes luxurious suds and smells so good (we can’t get enough of that shea, lemon and lavender scent!).

Bedtime BFF

Nothing signals bedtime quite like bathtime, especially when those sudsy bubbles have a soothing, calming scent. Johnson’s lavender-scented Bedtime Bubble Bath helps even the busiest bees unwind after a long day. Free from parabens, sulfates, phthalates and dyes, these sleepy suds are gentle on skin. If you or baby aren’t fans of lavender, Johnson’s also makes fragrance-free bubble bath.

What a Character

Nostalgic for those fun character bubble baths you had as a kid? (The Kermit the Frog and Snow White-shaped bottles were arguably the best.) While themed bubble bath rarely comes in a character-shaped bottle anymore, you can still find some of your toddler’s favorite TV and movie pals sponsoring their own baby-safe soap. This bubble bath featuring the Paw Patrol pups, for instance, is free of dyes and parabens, and the scent is a natural, refreshing green apple. You can also find gentle, long-lasting bubble bath from the characters of Frozen and Sesame Street.

All for One, One for All

Do you have a separate bucket or shelf just for baby bathtime stuff? What if you didn’t have to have two or three different bottles just for cleaning your little one? Thanks to this 3-in-1 bubble bath, shampoo and body wash combo, you can get kiddo totally clean from head to toe and all the bubbles in between with just one squirt. (Not to mention you’ll cut down on the plastic bottle usage.) The ingredients are EWG-certified to be tested for allergens and gentle on skin, and the lavender oil and aloe make the perfect combo for baby’s all-over relaxation.

How Berry Exciting!

Just when you thought bubble baths couldn’t be any more fun than they already are, enter Bubble Podz: the chemical-free, dermatologist- and pediatrician-tested, yummy-smelling bubble bath that’s totally contained in a small, pre-measured pod. Just toss some into the water and watch the bubbles come to life—or have your toddler do it (if you give them just one or two pods, there’s no fear of overflowing the tub with suds, and they’ll feel some independence). If your little one has sensitive skin, there’s an eczema-friendly formula, too. Keep in mind: while there are hazards in having detergent pods around small children, all the ingredients in Bubble Podz are totally non-toxic. They still shouldn’t be eaten, though; they taste really bad and may cause diarrhea.

Rainbow Fun

Okay, so this isn’t bubble bath soap, but we couldn’t resist adding these tablets to this list—they’re so much fun! Just plop a few yellow, red or blue tablets (or a mix of colors) into a bathtub filled with water and watch the water change color. It makes for some science-y bathtime fun for toddlers, and mixing colors can help them learn the basics of color theory. And, if bubbles are absolutely required for your little one’s bath time, the color tablets still work perfectly when combined with bubble soap.
