Agbogbloshie bath bomb was a product we saw from the 2018 Lush Summit. The summit is an event heavily focused on charities and campaigns that cover a huge range of issues across the world.
Agbogbloshie is the nickname of the commercial district in the capital of Ghana. A place where automobile and electronic scrap is collected; it is also alleged that it is part of the unethical exportation network for the environmental dumping of electric waste from industrialised nations. Basically whether these claims are true or not, it is still a highly hazardous place for residents and workers due to the burning of said e-waste. There are huge concerns about human health in the surrounding areas and this bath bomb was created to draw attention to these issues.
Onto the actual bath bomb, this was quite the popular product at the Summit in 2018 down to the design and the scent. Apart from stating the glaringly obvious that it is shaped like a phone, it also smelled like Calacas! A truly popular scent throughout the Lush community, this meant it sold out faster than most of the other exclusives at the event.
When used, it would slowly fizz and created a thick layer of foam on the surface of the water. Check out the photos and videos below to see how it performed and looked like in the water.
