Baking Soda (Sodium bicarbonate)
Baking Soda, Sodium bicarbonate or sodium hydrogen carbonate is the chemical compound with the formula NaHCO3. Since it has long been known and is widely used, the salt has many related names such as baking soda, bread soda, cooking soda, bicarbonate of soda.

The acidic compounds that induce this reaction include phosphates, cream of tartar, lemon juice, yogurt, buttermilk, cocoa, vinegar, etc. It also acts as a pH stabilizer, property valued in the skin care industry.
