Citric acid is a weak organic acid found naturally in citrus fruits such as lemons and limes. We use citric acid in small doses as a natural preservative and chelating agent (something which binds to hard metal ions to soften hard water, which enables soaps and detergents to work more effectively) in many of our products.
