EDTA can be used to prevent undesired metals in trace amounts - called impurities - from reacting and having detrimental effects on products. This is known as sequestering/Chelating Agent. For instance, in regards to cosmetics, EDTA serves to increase the cosmetic product's resistance towards molecules in the air. Simmilarly, in personal care and skin care products, EDTA binds to free metal ions and serves as a purifying agent and perservative. It basically reduces the "hardness" (or presence of metal cations) in tap water so that other ingredients in shampoos and soaps can work to cleanse more efficiently. Along the same lines, EDTA is used in laundry detergents to soften water that comes into contact with it so the other active ingredients can cleanse better. In textiles, EDTA prevents the discoloring of dyed fabrics by removing harmful free metal ions and it also gets rid of residue left on industrial equipment that must be used at high temperatures (i.e., broilers). In general, EDTA reduces the reactivity of a metal, preventing any unwanted effects that may result from its presence. EDTA is used in a salt form, most likely in disodium or calcium disodium EDTA.
EDTA is a chemical used to improve water quality by reducing heavy metal concentrations. It can be used in shrimp larval rearing.
EDTA is having strong chelating properties which may be supporting for ectocommensual fouling to stimulate juvenile molting.
