What is the optimal PH value of your skin?

Skin is the ultimate multi-tasker, performing several essential roles for our overall wellbeing AND beauty!

The most important role the skin plays is as a protective barrier between our bodies and the outside world, we all know how many nasties stick around us all everyday. The skin’s pH is the big gun in the arsenal of our skins protective mechanisms. The pH of our skin is constantly challenged by external aggressors such as pollution, temperature changes and harsh chemicals.

The optimal pH value of the skin on most of our face and body lies between 4.7 and 5.75. A pH of 7 (that of pure water) is considered neutral. Anything below that is acidic and above it alkaline, so skin’s natural pH is mildly acidic. The more you know!

If skin’s pH rises into the alkaline range, its natural balance is disturbed, which leads to the outer layer of skin (or epidermis) no longer being able to work as a protective barrier. The result of this is that it becomes far less resilient and more sensitive to environmental triggers. It can become dry, sensitive or hypersensitive, and is susceptible to infections, diseases such as Atopic Dermatitis and conditions such as Rosacea.

Our vita cleanser is the perfect tool to balance and promote the skins PH. Simply apply one pump into the palm of your hands then add some water. Using your hands gently massage your face using circular motions. This will help to remove makeup and unwanted oils and dirt that have built up from the daily grind without compromising your skin's natural PH balance!
