Citric Acid is a naturally occurring weak organic acid that comes from fruit, particularly citrus fruits. It is used extensively by the food, beverage, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries.
It is often used to flavour food and drinks and to boost the cleaning powers of cleaning products.
You can use Citric Acid in your homemade formulations such as toiletries and soaps. It can be used as a fizzing agent in homemade bath bombs. It can be used as a pH adjuster in homemade cosmetics. Citric Acid can be added to decrease the pH of a product if it is considered too high for skincare. When creating your own skincare, you should aim for a pH of around 5.5, this is deemed the optimal pH level for skin.
Dilute 10% Citric Acid in 90% water and add a couple of drops to your formulation. Check the pH and add a couple more drops if necessary until you get the required pH level.
Combine with Sodium Bicarbonate (#504) to create your own fizzing bath bombs. Or why not try one of our make your own bath bomb kits?
As with any new product always conduct a patch test before first use.
