Did you know, our skin has a thin, protective layer on its surface, referred to as the acid mantle? This is made up of sebum (free fatty acids) excreted from the skin’s sebaceous glands, which mixes with lactic and amino acids from sweat to create the skin’s pH (potential Hydrogen). This is used to describe the acid-alkaline ratio of a substance, ranging from 0 (the most acidic) to 14 (the most alkaline).
The skin’s ideal pH should be slightly acidic, 5.5
Q: What can throw the skin’s pH balance out, potentially causing wrinkles, skin sensitivity, acne, pigmentation, eczema and inflammation?
A:Using products that don’t match the skin’s molecular structure (products containing artificial chemicals, sulfates & preservatives).
….. We’d rather go clean than wear chemicals.
