  • Triethyl Citrate in Deodorant

    Would the addition of Triethyl Citrate to a natural deodorant stick make it an OTC product since it is lowering pH and controlling odor ?

      Doesn’t it depend on a claim and how it’s made…. Reduces odor as opposed to stops sweat.

    If it stops sweat, then it becomes an OTC.

      That was my thought…. if the client were to claim that though, correct?

        Yes, if they make that claim then it is an OTC. And if it is an OTC Antiperspirant, they have to use some form of Aluminium salt as the active & label it with a drug label.

    Note: Most beginner and mid-level (Facebook type) deos….antagonize/conflict with TEC. Not to says there are not 100’s of garbage brands that unknowingly make this mistake….as for the most part, their research involves looking at other folk’s INCI’s.

    TEC is a compliment to low pH products, not the high pH products. It only works as an emollient, for products that when combined with skin and sweat, result in neutral and above pH’s.
