Sodium Phytate
CAS No. 14306-25-3, EC No. 238-242-6

Sodium Phytate is the sodium salt of Phytic Acid, a saturated cyclic acid.  Phytic Acid is found abundantly in plant tissues, especially bran and seeds, where it acts as the principal storage form of phosphorus.

Sodium Phytate is an all-natural chelating agent that can be used as a replacement for disodium and tetrasodium EDTA in cosmetic products.  It will help to prevent undesirable metal-catalyzed reactions, thereby stabilizing cosmetic products.  It may help with discoloration and rancidity caused by metals present in formulations and works synergistically with other antioxidants.

Chelating agents are commonly added to cosmetic formulations to act as a preservative potentiator,  Micro organisms need trace metals for cell wall maintenance and survival.   Chelants bind with these metals, making them unavailable to bacteria, thereby weakening bacteria and allowing cosmetic preservatives to work more efficiently.  EDTA is commonly added to cosmetic formulations for this purpose and Sodium Phytate should have a similar function.

In addition to its chelating properties, Sodium Phytate has other skin benefits:

  • Moisturizes skin
  • Improves skin elasticity
  • Normalizes oily skin
  • May help reduce pore size
  • Helps lighten skin
  • May help improve the appearance  of cellulite

Sodium Phytate is fully neutralized and has a pH of ~12

You are my go to resource for product information. Great product descriptions and complete information. I can easily spend hours reading product info before making my selections. Going to try some of your formulations soon.
Fast on service too, kudos to you.
Joyce, (Heart and Hand Naturals)

As a maker of high quality oils and incenses, sachets and other scented goodies, I cannot speak highly enough of how satisfied I am to be able to come here, find exactly what I need, put in my order and its in my mailbox so swiftly I wonder if you are sleeping on cots waiting for us to hit that order button. (just kidding). It *is* nice to know when I am running low on a product, I can place my order and know I have no worries; my goods will arrive swiftly, and undamaged and exactly what I ordered; every time. I am so glad I found your site; you have a customer for as long as I can continue to make all the goodies I make. Thank you so much!
Mrs. Cindy Lamprecht, (Harvest Moon Haven)

I just love Lotioncrafter ...they ALWAYS ship your order out immediately without an extra charge like some companies & I once ordered the wrong item & noticed within couple hours they corrected my mistake right away and most other suppliers will not do that. Honestly my favorite supplier. I only go elsewhere if it's something they don't carry (micas,oxides ect..) several times over the past year and half I've been ordering & they are super reliable
Thank you

I came to Lotioncrafter after spending years, and thousands of dollars, with several suppliers who did not meet the level of what my business needs. I had to jump from one supplier to another, and so on, in an effort to fill a single order. I've known about Lotioncrafter for several years but erroneously believed their prices to be out of my range. How dumb was that?! In truth, Lotioncrafter, has excellent products, and excellent prices. I've also learned that I can expect, and receive, quality products that, so far, I have not found in other suppliers. I trust Jen to see that I receive products that are as advertised and have the quality my customers expect from me. Thank you, Lotioncrafter and Jen, for being there for me and my customers.
