High Quality Food Grade Citric acid ideal for use in Bath Bombs, pH adjustment and Cosmetic Feel as well as Food & Beverage. Fine Grade for Superior Bath Bombs

Citric Acid

Fine Grade Citric acid to give that superior finish to bath bombs. Our Citric acid is 100% Food Grade and comes in both 5kg and 25kg packs. Citric acid is environmentally safe and easily biodegrades. Citric acid is Vegan and 100% Natural.


Citric acid has traditionally been used in the food industry and indeed the Citric acid we sell is 100% Food Grade and can be used in food and beverages. Citric acid is a key ingredient in the manufacture of bath bombs, where it is combined with Sodium bicarbonate, Essential Oils, Colourings and Butters to create fragrant and indulgent Bath Bombs. In a Bath Bomb, the acid acts as a natural preservative, stopping the Bath Bomb from "going off".

Citric acid is used as a pH adjuster in the production of Cosmetic products. In a shower gel it is often used to lower the pH to ensure maximum efficacy of Preservatives. A small addition of Citric acid can also bring the surfactants of a Shower Gel into their optimum range of foaming and aid the skin feel of a shower gel, by making it feel more feeling and lowering the "harshness" of a surfactants. In glucoside and Xanthan based Shower gel formulations, Citric acid improves the viscosity of the final product and helps remove air bubbles during production.

Recycling Your Packaging

We actively encourage you to recycle and reuse all Naturallythinking Bottles and Jars, whether they be aluminium, plastic or glass. The life of your bottle and jar does not need end when you have finished the product inside. Our Jars and bottles can be used for anything from stationary to arranging Lego Bricks.

Please never throw empty packaging in the bin. Always recycle your Plastic packaging in the relevant facilities. All of our Plastic Packaging is either PET, PP or HDPE Plastic, so can be readily recycled in household recycling facilities or local plastic waste recycling. If plastic is recycled it still remains one of the most environmentally friendly packaging materials available. Our Glass and Aluminium can be readily recycled in standard household recycling facilities.

For more information on our comparison of packaging types, please see our blog at:

Ensure Packaging is Recycled

  • Always rinse your packaging before putting it in the recycling bin
