What is Citric Acid used for?
Citric acid can be used in various ways. It is commonly used in very small amounts to regulate the pH of a formula and bring it closer to the skin's natural pH. It is also the alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) with the highest molecular weight and can be used as an exfoliant, similar to glycolic acid or lactic acid. It helps improve the texture of the skin by removing dead cells and enhancing the skin's barrier function.
