About Chelators in DIY Skin Care
"Chelators attract metal ions to prevent microorganism growth or adverse reactions with active or inactive ingredients in a formulation. Use of chelators is especially important when metal-sensitive ingredients are used ( such as L-ascorbic acid, green tea extract etc.) It is a good idea to include a chelator in any formulation for which stability of an active is desired."

Tetrasodium EDTA, is a chelating agent often utilized in personal care products to control metal ions across a very broad pH range. In personal care products, these agents improve effectiveness, stability, hard water performance, rinsability, and shelf life of formulations. Tetrasodium EDTA can also be used to neutralize Carbomer, or raise the pH of personal care formulations.
Tetrasodium EDTA is suitable for products with a wide PH range and is recommended for products which are NOT made fresh on a weekly basis and require a longer shelf life.
