Why pH is important and why you should switch to a low pH cleanser? What’s pH?
In chemistry, pH is commonly said as power of hydrogen, is a scale used to specify how acidic or basic a water-based solution is. Acidic solutions have a lower pH, while basic solutions have a higher pH. A pH of 7 indicates a neutral substance, a pH greater than 7 indicates a basic substance, and a pH of less than 7 indicates an acidic substance.
Our Skin’s pH and why choose Mildly Acidic Cleanser?
Skin’s natural pH is 5.5, which is slightly acidic. When it comes to skincare, it’s important to understand the high and low pH contents and choose products that will keep your skin happy and healthy. Switching to neutral pH or mildly acidic cleansers can make a huge difference to the health and appearance of your skin.
