EDTA is a synthetic compound commonly used in a wide range of skincare products like cleansers, moisturizers, serums and sunscreens, where it serves as a chelating agent to improve product stability, prevent color changes and improve the efficacy of preservatives by binding to metal ions that could degrade the product over time. Its presence helps maintain the quality and effectiveness of these formulas for a longer shelf life and consistent performance.
