“Sisterpreneurs” Behind Da Bomb Fizzers Rack Up High Demand

Caroline and Isabel Bercaw show off some of their homemade bath bombs.

Two years ago, sisters Isabel Bercaw, 14, and Caroline Bercaw, 13, decided to create their own fizzing bath bombs in the basement of their Edina home. Two years later, the girls have sold over 3,000 of their Da Bomb Fizzers at art fairs, craft fairs and retail stores. With the launching of their new website this past spring, they hope to reach out further to their growing customer base and develop a list of wholesale clients.

Da Bomb Fizzers feature a variety of fragrances and whimsical names, as well as a surprise inside like toys, famous quotes or fortunes. The girls make every bath bomb by hand, using a few simple, high-quality ingredients, but have enlisted help from the family since demand for the fizzers has grown.

“I think the whole family thing is a big part in this,” Isabel says. “If we didn’t have our family’s support, there probably wouldn’t be a business.”

These “sisterpreneurs” are experimenting with new products and hope to expand their business across the country so they can travel to see how their product is doing. On the local scene, the girls were chatting with customers and selling Da Bomb Fizzers at the Uptown Art Fair for the third year in a row, after having their products sell out completely the past two years.
