SHORT DESCRIPTION

Citric acid is a tricarboxylic acid having a hydroxy substituent at position 2. As a basic metabolite, chelator, antimicrobial agent, and regulator of food acidity, it is an essential metabolite in aerobic organisms. Because of its many advantages and low environmental impact, it is used in food, cosmetics, and cleaning products. It functions as a preservative in food, maintaining the color, flavor, and texture while bringing the pH levels back into balance. It minimizes fine lines, brightens skin, and aids in stain removal when used in cosmetics.
