At Soak Boulder, we provide saltwater soaking in copper tubs.
For reasons ranging from scientific to aesthetic, sanitary to environmental!
Copper is our choice because:
- Its metallic properties conduct heat faster and retain heat longer than traditional bathtubs. This means we can use less energy heating our tubs!
- Copper is highly resistant to mold and recognized as antimicrobial. Yay for sanitation!
- It is also corrosion resistant, making for more durable and long-lasting tubs.
- Once the life of a tub is maximized, being made of copper means it is more easily recycled.
We also happen to think it’s elegant – both from a design perspective and because it has self-healing properties. If the surface gets scratched, then over time, it will “heal” the scratches, making them once again smooth.
This concept of self-healing mirrors our promotion of taking radical responsibility for self-care so, of course we love it!
