pH, that mysterious measurement we often hear about in science, plays a crucial role in the health of our skin.
In the world of cosmetics, pH balance is not just a chemical concept, but a fundamental pillar for maintaining healthy, radiant skin.
At Såper, with our focus on organic and natural products, we offer a harmonious solution to balance the pH of your skin, ensuring its well-being and beauty.
What is pH in the Human Body?
The pH, or potential of hydrogen, is a scale that measures how acidic or alkaline something is.
In the human body, the pH varies according to the organ.
For example, the pH of the blood remains in a narrow range of about 7.35 to 7.45, slightly alkaline.
Skin, on the other hand, has a slightly acidic pH, usually around 5.5.
This acidic environment is essential to protect the skin against bacteria and other pathogens.
An imbalance in the pH of the body, including the skin, can lead to various symptoms.
An excessively acidic body, for example, can manifest problems such as fatigue, headaches, and in the skin, can lead to conditions such as acne, eczema and a general feeling of sensitivity.
Maintaining normal pH values in the skin is essential for its barrier function. A pH-balanced skin is better able to retain moisture and protect itself against environmental pollutants and microorganisms.
The term “alkaline” refers to a pH above 7, while “acidic” indicates a pH below 7. Healthy skin tends to be slightly acidic, which helps maintain its barrier function and regulate bacterial flora.
Impact of an unbalanced pH on the Skin
An unbalanced pH in the skin, as we have summarized above, can lead to several problems. When the pH is too acidic or alkaline, it can cause dryness, irritation, and make the skin more susceptible to infections and dermatological diseases.
In addition, an unbalanced pH can affect the effectiveness of the products we apply to our skin.
Såper Natural Cosmetics and the pH of the Skin
Såper is distinguished by its commitment to nature and skin health. Our products are meticulously formulated with natural and organic ingredients, selected not only for their dermatological benefits but also for their ability to maintain and respect the skin’s natural pH balance.
Each Såper product is designed to work in synergy with the skin’s natural pH. From gentle cleansers to nourishing serums and creams, all of our products help maintain the skin’s natural acidity, crucial to maintaining its protective barrier and healthy microbiome.
By using natural cosmetics, the risk of altering the pH of the skin is reduced. Botanical ingredients, such as vegetable oils, butters, and essential oils, preserve the skin’s integrity and promote its ability to self-regulate. This is vital to avoid problems such as dryness, irritation and acne breakouts, which often result from an imbalanced pH.
For example, our cleansers are formulated with vegetable oils, unrefined and undeodorized, they keep all their properties intact, so in addition to cleaning, we are providing a large amount of active ingredients and nutrients in the skin, without altering its natural pHl and ensuring that it remains healthy, moisturized and free of irritation.
Alkalinizing the Body: Is it necessary for the skin?
Alkalizing the body has become a popular trend in health and wellness, centered on the idea that a more alkaline body can be healthier. However, it is crucial to understand that the human body naturally maintains its pH in strict balance, and that attempting to significantly alter this balance can be counterproductive.
As far as the skin is concerned, maintaining its slight acidity is essential to its health. An attempt to alkalinize the skin can disrupt its natural barrier and make it more vulnerable to damage and irritation.
At Såper, we recognize the importance of respecting the skin’s natural pH. Our products are designed to nourish and care for the skin without altering its natural balance and reinforcing the hydrolipidic barrier, with ingredients such as calendula oil, shea butter or almond oil, which are found in the body cream.
Såper’s natural and organic cosmetics offer a harmonious and effective way to care for your skin, respecting its natural balance. By choosing Såper, you are opting for products that not only beautify your skin, but also contribute to its long-term health by maintaining its acid-acid balance essential for its protective function.
