The pH level of the skin refers to how acidic or alkaline it is. On a scale of 1-14, with 1 being the most acidic to 14 being the most alkaline, 7 is considered neutral. Naturally, the skin has a level of about 5.5, making it slightly acidic.
Our skin has a thin, protective layer on its surface, referred to as the acid mantle. When skin pH gets out of balance, your body’s ability to resist bacteria and germs lessens. This means that the skin is more prone to a variety of irritations, blemishes, and dermatitis-related problems. If the acid mantle is disrupted, you can experience a variety of skin imperfections and conditions like:
- Chronic dry skin
- Ance and blemishes
- Sensitivity and redness
Most of our products have a pH level of 4.5 - 6 to maintain the skin's natural acid mantle. A balanced pH means you're on your way to beautiful, natural skin!
