Potassium Phosphate

Definition

Potassium phosphate is a corrosion inhibitor that can also be found in facial cleansers and moisturizers. It helps keep contents fresh and prevent the corrosion or rusting of a can, container or dispenser. We know there are concerns about phosphates and their impact on waterways and surface water. However, potassium phosphate is used in low concentrations to limit the concentrations of total phosphate being used in SC Johnson products and potentially released to surface waters.
