The Natural Choice for Personal Care Products

Because of the vital role of the bicarbonate ion in maintaining the normal function of the human body, and preserving the balance of biological and ecological systems, sodium bicarbonate is the natural choice for highly effective personal care products.

Sodium bicarbonate’s abilities to absorb odors and neutralize short-chain fatty acids and sulphur compounds make it an excellent deodorizer for Breath Care, Body Powders, and Foot Care products.

Sodium bicarbonate’s mild, but effective abrasion characteristics are why it is used for skin smoothing products like Microdermabrasion Media, Exfoliating Creams and Cleansers, as well as for Prophy Polishing and Toothpaste.

Effervescence is a classic method with which to achieve tablet and granule disintegration, foaming, and product sizzle. Sodium bicarbonate provides reliable carbon dioxide release, adding excitement and function to Bath Salts and Tablets and Self-Foaming products. In addition, sodium bicarbonate helps impart a soft feeling to the skin, and is able to neutralize acidic irritants, making it a useful ingredient in topical skin soothing products.
