pH Adjuster

Where does it come from?

Sodium Citrate is usually created by neutralizing citric acid. Citric acid is derived from vegetable/natural sources like corn starch through bio fermentation of glucose.

What is it?

Sodium Citrate is used to adjust the pH of formulas up so they become more basic. If you weren't paying attention in Chem class, pH is measured around the neutral point of 7. Above 7 = basic/alkaline, below 7 = acidic. Skin naturally sits around 5.5 and pure water sits at 7.

How do we use it?

Sodium Citrate is usually used at the end of the formulation process to adjust the final pH of the formula up. The pH is adjusted to suit the ingredients and function of the product.
