    What is phytic acid?

    Phytic acid, chemical name is phytate, referred to as IP6. It is a natural compound composed of inositol and 6 phosphate ions. It is mostly found in plant seeds in nature in the form of calcium phytate. Phytic acid is extracted from rice bran and rice husk. Due to its unique chemical properties and physiological functions, phytic acid has been widely used in food, medicine, metal processing, polymer industry, daily chemical industry, etc. Its molecule contains six phosphate groups (12 free hydrogens), which can easily combine with multivalent ions to undergo a complex reaction. The complex reaction is a reaction to form a complex. Value acid has a very strong complexing effect and can form water-insoluble complexes, so it has a wide range of functions and uses.
    It has good stability and is not easy to rot. If it is combined with certain minerals such as magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc and other cations, it will form phytate and be fixed. Therefore, phytate is a key factor in phosphorus nutrition and mineral nutrition.

    What are the benefits

    Whitening effect
    It complexes copper ions required for tyrosinase, inhibits tyrosinase activity, reduces melanin production and deposition, thereby achieving the effect of whitening and removing freckles.
    It is acidic and can gently exfoliate the skin's stratum corneum, accelerate the peeling off of melanin and aging stratum corneum formed in the skin, and is beneficial to whitening and rejuvenation.

    By chelating metal ions, it inhibits the generation of free radicals, inhibits lipid peroxidation and DNA damage.
    Synergizes with antioxidants to slow down oil phase rancidity. It can be used in anti-aging, sunscreen, anti-inflammatory, repair and other products.

    Dental care
    Phytic acid (sodium phytate) can chelate multivalent cations, effectively inhibit the dissolution of calcium phosphate, and has anti-caries effects. It can also effectively remove tooth stains and plaque caused by smoking, so it is often used in toothpaste formulas.

    Rinse products
    It can remove trace metals from skin and hair, prevent hair from drying out, eliminate static electricity, and make hair more elegant and soft. It also has antibacterial and antipruritic activity and can be used in shampoo products.
    Added to shower gel, it can adjust the pH of the skin, promote skin metabolism, remove skin itching and odor, make the skin more shiny, and can also reduce the occurrence of some skin diseases such as acne, acne, and acne.

    Phytic acid has good antistatic ability and has certain development prospects as a natural softener for washing products.

    Application direction

    Food Industry
    As a green natural antiseptic preservative, phytic acid has a good preservation effect; it has antioxidant properties and can extend the storage time of noodles and edible oils.
    Adding phytic acid to drinks can quickly quench thirst and improve the taste. On the other hand, it can remove excess metal ions, especially heavy metals that are harmful to the human body.
    It can also be used as a preservative and bacteriostatic agent for aquatic products and meat products; used as a stabilizer in the brewing industry to chelate polyvalent iron ions and remove excess iron ions in liquor or alcoholic beverages; used as a biological fermentation accelerator , metal ion chelating agent, canned food stabilizing and color-protecting agent, etc.

    Daily chemical industry
    Mainly used in toothpaste, cosmetics, shower gel and other products, it has the functions of whitening, moisturizing and exfoliating.
