Disodium EDTA
CAS No. - Mixture


EDTA, Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid is a molecule which complexes metal ions in aqueous environments. It is available in four neutralizations, two of which, Disodium EDTA and Tetrasodium EDTA, are commonly used in the cosmetics. Generally, the choice of which product to use is determined by the pH of your product, but this is not a hard and fast rule. Disodium EDTA is commonly used in neutral to mildly acidic products, like most creams, lotions, and neutral pH liquid soaps and shampoos. EDTA works synergistically with your preservative to improve preservative efficacy.

Disodium EDTA has limited solubility in water, but at a typical usage rate of 0.2% to improve preservative efficacy, even if not fully solubilized, it is still efficacious.  In creams or lotions, there will be no grittiness and it will not be seen. In clear or transparent gel, serum, or clear surfactant systems, use Tetrasodium EDTA, which is highly soluble in water. At low usage rates, it will not raise the pH unduly, but if it does, you can simply lower the pH of your formulation with a citric acid solution.


Recommended Usage Rate: 0.2%
Appearance: Powder

Our Customers Say...
I can't believe I didn't find you guys earlier. I have been making skin care for almost 20 years. It has almost been a challenge as a small manufacturer to buy small quantities of high quality skin care ingredients, and yet here you were just across Puget Sound.
George Tindalls

I'm exploring making lotions, creams, & balms to add to my line of CP soaps. Lotioncrafter is the best! Nice selection of ingredients and tools, very good prices, smaller quantities available for my test batches, excellent service. And love the customer reward points too!

Oh my gosh. What a great resource! I ordered and had the product in my hand the next day! I am trying to formulate something for my mother who is leaving in 4 days...never thinking I would get my order this quickly. I am so impressed. Thank you. I shall be using you again.
