In the UK, Lush Cosmetics is working on a new purple bath bomb, which boasts a un unusual jellied form and an unforgettable nameā€”the Ectoplasm Jelly Bomb.

True to its name, the bath bomb is made with carrageenan seaweed and grapefruit oil, which are some of the ingredients that dissolve in warm bath water to create bubbles that look slightly frothy and bath water that feels "a little goopy and extremely soft." Despite this, the jellied bath bomb seems to boast the same kind of dry texture as most other bath bombs from Lush on the outside, meaning that it must hit the water for the real transformation to jelly to begin.

Fans of Ghostbusters will recognize the word "ectoplasm" as the slimy residue that is produced by paranormal creatures.
