Common Question: Can I use your Citric Acid to make bath bombs?

Yes! Our Citric Acid is of the Anhydrous type, which means it is in a water free form and will react well when exposed to water (you will get a good fizz!!). Also check out our bath bomb molds available in the soap molds section.

Is your Citric Acid Natural?

Citric acid is manufactured by the natural process of fermentation by using naturally derived carbohydrates. The strains used for the manufacturing are not genetically modified according to the directive 90/219/EC and as amended in directive 2001/18/EC. Citric acid undergoes several purification steps and is finally obtained in its highly pure nature identical form.

The salts, mono- and trisodium citrate, tricalcium citrate, trimagnesium citrate, tripotassium citrate, and zinc citrate are prepared by neutralizing the above citric acid with the respective mineral source. These products undergo several purification steps and are finally obtained in their highly pure form.

Because there is no particular regulation in the United States that defines the requirements for a ""natural"" product, we advise companies to evaluate the natural status with their own regulatory and label experts.

Great price! I am using this for my homemade dishwasher soap. The citric acid leaves the dishes clear and un-spotted - no milky residue left behind.
This is a great product that I use for bath bombs as well as facial and body scrubs.
I bought this to make facial scrubs. I love the scrubs (and so do my friends!) so I love this product! Can't wait to learn what else I can do with it.
I ordered two 1.5 pound jars for making bath bomb gifts. Like another reviewer said my only regret is that I didn't order more. My recipe uses half a cup of this stuff per batch, but we'll have so much fun making them I may have to order more sooner rather than later. I love the sizes and the bulk availability is a great option. If I need more I will definitely order from here, love the prices.
What is the differnce in the refined castor oil and the unrefined version? And which one is the best to use on your hair or skin?
Great price and perfect for using in my bath fizzies. Easy to work with and creates a nice product.
I use this all the time in bath bombs so, I appreciate the low price and bulk options.
My only regret is that I didnt purchase a larger container!!!
I used this product when I made my bath bombs. It works very well. Good quality citric acid
this citric acid works really well to make exfoliating lotion. I love making my own AHA's lotions without having to spend a fortune!
This was great in making bath products! I was really happy with both the product and the service.
