What is EDTA  ?
EDTA or ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid is an ingredient that helps to improve the stability and enhance the appearance of cosmetic products.
To identify it in our products, take a look at the ingredients list on packaging. It can be found under the names: CALCIUM DISODIUM EDTA, DIAMMONIUM EDTA, DIPOTASSIUM EDTA, DISODIUM EDTA, DISODIUM EDTA-COPPER, TRISODIUM EDTA.
Where does it  come from ?
EDTA is a synthetic ingredient.
It is formulated in the laboratory.
What is it  used for ?
EDTA acts as a chelator. It “grabs” metal ions that can affect the stability and / or appearance of cosmetic products. EDTA is used to counter the hardness of water in rinse-off products. It helps avoid the precipitation of certain ions (calcium, magnesium...) in order to ensure the quality and preservations of products.
Why is it  questioned ?
EDTA may cause irritation when in contact with the eyes and eczema. There are some concerns regarding the persistence and bioaccumulation in the environment, given the widespread use of EDTA.
- EDTA is safe for use in cosmetics, and for decades the data is well-reported.
- At the concentration level as it is used in our products, EDTA is a well-tolerated ingredient and allergic cases are very rare.
Why and how  do we use it ?
We work with our suppliers to limit the use of EDTA to protect the raw materials we use.
In a process of continuous improvement, we are working to reduce or substitute EDTA present in our formulas when possible, while guaranteeing the same level of quality and product performance.
