Find out how pH in skincare works and why you should pay attention to it

by Kleveru | 25 October 2023

Hi Klevies! Have you ever noticed that some skincare products often included brief information about pH content and usually followed by one or two digit of number. Why, in your opinion, should this information be told to consumers through product packaging and even the marketing? Keep on scrolling!

The potential of hydrogen, or pH as it is frequently abbreviated, is the concentration of hydrogen on the skin's surface used to calculate the acid-to-alkaline ratio. Ranging from 0 to 14, the lowest scale of pH indicates acidity, and the highest number indicates alkalinity. It is best to use skincare products with a skin-friendly pH because normal skin's pH normally ranges from 4.7 to 5.5.

Skin pH is considered an important component of skin health. While a higher (alkaline) pH can make the skin more prone to acne, maintaining an acidic pH helps stop free radicals from harming the skin and accelerating the ageing process. Therefore, it's important to maintain a healthy pH-balanced skin without causing any more harm.

Therefore, it is best advised to conduct a test using pH test strips or directly with a dermatologist in order to determine the pH level on the skin. Knowing your skin's pH will help you find skincare products that are ideal for your skin type and enhance the benefits of your regular skin care regimen.

You can follow these three simple beginner friendly steps to maintain the pH balance of your skin:

Choosing the right face wash

Choosing the right facial wash is crucial for maintaining the skin’s pH. While face wash with a low pH (acid) is advised for those with eczema, psoriasis, and acne-prone skin, face was with a higher pH is more likely to irritate the skin.

Choose a wash that has a balanced pH for normal skin. Kleveru Sea Buckthorn Cleansing Gel is formulated according to natural skin pH (5.2-5.5). It is ideal for all skin types and has a pH-balanced formula that cleanses the skin without irritating it.

Balancing skin’s pH with toner

Toners typically have a pH of 5-7, which can really helpful in balancing the pH of the skin. Moreover, water-based toners can keep skin completely hydrated.

A combination of an essence and toner in a bottle, Kleveru Sea Buckthorn Essence Toner is formulated with the skin's natural pH level (5.5). Skin that has a pH higher than 5.5 is usually more prone to skin problems. In order to restore the ideal pH of the skin, Kleveru Sea Buckthorn Essence Toner may be the answer you are searching for.
