IVORY WAVE The Birmingham five-piece are hoping to make a name for themselves with their contagious acid house and dance-style tunes.
Because it was called bath salts, it initially evaded the Food and Drug Administration and was sold at gas stations and clubs marked "not for human consumption," which earned it its name as the "legal high." Creatively packaged in containers that are colorful and attractive, the drug has aliases such as "plant food," "Ivory Wave," "Purple Wave," "Bloom," "Cloud Nine," or "Vanilla Sky," according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

There's a reason this stuff makes you go loopy, and that reason is the majority of it is made from chemical substances which are clearly labelled 'not for human consumption.' To get around this, the product is labelled as plant food, bath salts and pond cleaner, then given a slang name like 'Ivory Wave' or 'Banshee Dust'.
Most commonly called bath salts, these substances have a variety of other street names, including: Bloom, Blue Silk, Charge+, Hurricane Charlie, Ivory Snow, Ivory Wave, Lunar Wave, Ocean Burst, Ocean Snow, Pure Ivory, Purple Wave, Red Dove, Scarface, Sex-tacy, Snow Leopard, Stardust, Vanilla Sky, White Dove, White Knight, White Lightning, White Rush, and Zoom.
With reported inconspicuous names like Ivory Wave, Red Dove, Bliss and Vanilla Sky, many of these so-called 'bath salts' causing concern contain Mephedrone and Methylenedioxypyrovalerone (aka MDPV) or other potentially harmful ingredients.
