citric acidCitric Acid

Hey everyone! Do you love all citrusy kinds of foods? Or maybe you just like the smells of them? Well here at Nature’s Garden we actually offer citrus acid for you to add to your products. Citrus acid is a weak, natural, and organic acid generally found in fruits, such as lemons, oranges, limes, tangerines, and grapefruit. It can be used for soaps, cosmetics and for awesome bath bombs. (Come on, we all know how much fun bath bombs are!) However, it can also be used in food production and has many other uses as well.

Citric acid is in most fruits and vegetables and is found in the metabolisms of most living things. When being used in cosmetic products it helps to lower the ph formulation. When being used to make soaps, it generally provides better foam for the soap and helps it to soften in water. It is also an active ingredient in cleaning solutions for kitchens and bathrooms. When making bath bombs, combine the citric acid with baking soda. Did you know that every year around the world, about one million tons of citric acid are produced commercially? Can you even picture that much? Neither can I! Another fun fact, citric acid can be used in shampoos to wash waxes and coloring out of your hair!

This acid is found in many different fruits and some vegetables. It can be used in food production as well. Citric acid is a natural preservative and can be used to add a sour taste to food and drinks. However it is also used in ice cream! Do you know what it is used for? It is used to keep the “fat globules” separated! A weird thought, but still cool! However, here at Nature’s Garden, we sell our citric acid for uses in cosmetics, soaps, and bath bombs.

I hope that you all have figured out everything on our new site! Well if you haven’t figured it all out yet, and still need a little help navigating everything, don’t worry! We’re here to help you!
