Citric Acid Powder


Available Options


Citric Acid is also used as a preservative (up to 1/2 %), foam stabilizer, and to adjust your products' Ph (acid/alkali balance). It is also a mild alpha-hydroxy acid to lighten and brighten the skin. It is derived from fermenting crude sugars. No known toxicity.

A Citric Acid solution (50%) can be made by weighing an equal amount of Distilled Water and Citric Acid Raw Material. Gently add the Citric Acid to the water and stir well to mix. This solution can be stored in the desired container and used as needed; ensure the mixture is at room temperature before use. Add the solution drop by drop, mixing and closely monitoring the pH change until it reaches the desired level.

If sensitive skin, limit the rate to 0.25% strength.
