PH balance, or Potential Hydrogen is the measured level of acute acidity within a product. Potential Hydrogen (PH) levels range from 1 to 14 with 7 being the neutral level. A lower PH level represents more acidity while the higher the numbers indicate alkaline levels. While at face value (no pun intended) you would not want high acidity levels in your soap bar, body or face wash a higher acidic level actually means a higher quality soap bar or product.
Higher acidity is vital to combat damage from microbes, as well reduce / slow down the aging process.
Areas of your body that are less exposed to the elements (back, legs) are more likely to naturally maintain a good acidity. Constant exposed areas of your body such as your face and hands are more alkaline from continued exposure to the environment without protection (wear sunblock please!). Overall, skin PH levels are affected by factors such as pollution, sweating, daily exposure to harmful UV rays and air quality.
FOAMIE face and body wash bars are PH balanced cleansers which allows your skin to maintain its natural protective barriers from damaging conditions. Your skin will look and feel its best as well as defy overall aging if you can maintain a higher PH level. Rough face and body wash soap bars tend to strip away our natural defense mechanisms, leaving us dry and open to harmful environmental irritants.
