Citric Acid in lotion?


Recommended Posts

I tried a formula from another forum that called for apple cider vinegar which is supposed to be good for your skin. People who didn't like the vinegar smell used citric acid instead.

A slight shift in pH can help increase the effectiveness of some ingredients as well.

Depending on the total % of acid in your product it could act as a preservative, but it would have to be pretty high for that IMHO. (as PL said, controversy on this).

Probably more there to balance the pH.
