Importance Of pH Of Product


What is pH?

We have come across this term during our secondary education level.


It is basically a measure of acidity and alkalinity of a substance on a scale of 1 -14, with 7 being neutral pH.

The lower nos. are acidic while upper levels are considered alkaline or Non-acidic.

You might be surprised to learn that healthy skin pH is more on the acidic side.

With More acidity,the skin can combat harmful microbes and damaging free radicals that might increase the aging process.

Curious of pH values & corresponding substances watch this !!!


Normal healthy skin pH of 5.4 – 5.9 and therefore the surface of our skin is acidic. (Indian Journal of Dermatol 2014 sept-oct 59/5 pages 442-444)

The pH of skin increases in proportion to the pH of the cleanser or skincare products that you use. The increase in pH causes a dehydrating effect, irritability, and Propionibacterial count. Therefore we should use skincare products with pH 5.5 or lower. Unfortunately, most of the products do not disclose pH on the label of the product.

Cleanser and facewash with more acidic pH may help prevention of acne

Finally, skin pH is just one of the aspects of overall skin health.

Taking care of your skin with right pH cleanser and moisturizer helps strike balance of oil your skin needs

Always check the pH of the products you use on the label or on their website or brochure.
