Balancing Act: Finding the Right pH for Your Body Wash and Cleansers


Sep 20, 20234 min read


    The pH level of your body wash and cleansers plays a pivotal role in maintaining healthy skin. Discover how pH levels influence skin health and why the Washed Up All-in-One Shower Oil hits the sweet spot for optimal care.

Skincare is often more scientific than most realize. Like a delicate scale, everything must be balanced perfectly for optimal results, especially when it comes to the pH level of our body wash and cleansers. pH, or potential hydrogen, indicates how acidic or alkaline a water solution is, and this seemingly simple scale can make a world of difference for your skin's health and vitality.

Understanding the pH Scale

The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14. Solutions with a pH lower than 7 are considered acidic, while those above 7 are alkaline. Our skin’s natural pH hovers around the slightly acidic range of 4.5 to 5.5. This natural acidity helps keep harmful microbes at bay and retains essential oils, keeping our skin hydrated and healthy.

Why Does pH Matter in Cleansers?

  1. Protection from Harmful Bacteria: An imbalance in pH can disrupt the skin's protective barrier, making it susceptible to bacterial infections, acne, and various other skin issues.
  2. Maintaining Moisture: Products that are too alkaline can strip the skin of its natural oils, leading to dryness, irritation, and even premature aging.
  3. Optimal Product Performance: The efficacy of other skincare products can be affected if the skin's pH is off-balance. For instance, certain active ingredients perform best within specific pH ranges.
