One Piece fans will soon have the opportunity to purchase a new line of devil fruit-inspired bath bombs from Lush.
As detailed on Soranews24, the entire product line will consist of four different bath bombs, a bubble bath bar shaped like Luffy's famous straw hat and a large wrapping cloth decorated with the logo of the Straw Hat Pirates. Notably, not only do the bath bombs smell appealing, but they also can turn bathwater into different colors as they dissolve. The products go on sale in Japan, the U.K. and Ireland starting Sept. 19. Japan's price for the bath bombs will be 980 yen each (about $6.88). The bath bar is priced at 1,400 yen (about $9.82) and the wrapping cloth is priced at 3,000 yen (about $21).
Naturally, the company created a bath bomb inspired by the Gum-Gum fruit, the same devil fruit that gave Luffy his powers after eating it. The lavender-colored "Gum-Gum Bath Bomb" is made with black currant extract, sweet orange and davana oils. Another bath bomb found its inspiration in the Flame-Flame fruit, the fruit famously eaten by Portgas D. Ace; Luffy's adopted older brother. The key ingredients for this bright orange bath bomb include mandarin orange peel oil, fenugreek seed extract, and carrot seed oil. Described as having a "popping-candy" effect when placed in water, Lush designed it to emphasize the bomb's signature spicy aroma.
The "Flower-Flower Fruit Bath Bomb' is based on the fruit eaten by Nico Robin, the main archeologist of the Straw Hat Pirate Crew. This product is made with geranium oils, damask rose and jasmine extracts to give it a significantly floral scent. The final bomb is based on the mushroom-shaped "Human-Human" fruit consumed by the sweet-loving reindeer Tony Tony Chopper. This product contains cocoa extracts, tonka extracts, and bergamot oil. The "Straw Hat Bubble Bath Bar" is made with cedar wood oil, mandarin orange peel oils, and benzoin extract.
One Piece Has a History of Collaborations
This collaboration is not the first time One Piece worked with a company to create devil fruit-inspired products. Earlier this year, the Japanese confectioner Cake.jp created the "Gum-Gum Fruit Cake," a large cake set inside a muskmelon made with several layers of sponge cake, melon-flavored whipped cream, and sliced strawberries. This confection costs roughly 13,000 yen (about $91). Cake.jp also collaborated with Tokyo's Salon Bake and Tea to create a peach dessert cake based on Nico Robin's devil fruit.
The One Piece anime series is available on Netflix, Crunchyroll and Hulu. The manga is available in English from VIZ Media.
