benzoic acid and citric acid
Hello, I recently bought a base lotion that I intend on selling from my etsy shop. All I have to do is add the essential oils. It's made from a well-known company that supplies wholesale products. My concern is that it contains benzoic acid and citric acid. I have read numerous articles stating that benzoic acid combined with vitamin C can create benzene, a known carcinogen. Would citric acid also be a problem? I am afraid to use this lotion. If anyone knows the answer. I am not a chemist.
