Surely you have heard about the importance of maintaining pH. In this blog, we tell you what it means and why its balance is essential for your health and that of your skin.

 

 

What is pH?

pH is the chemical symbol for Hydrogen Potential. It indicates the concentration of hydrogen ions in aqueous solutions and determines their acidity or alkalinity. It is measured in variable values ​​from 0 (most acidic) to 14 (most alkaline). The 7 represents a neutral value equivalent to that of pure water and a newborn.

Why is it important to take care of the pH?

Keeping the pH balanced is essential for the body to function properly. The body needs an alkaline blood value, between 7.35 and 7.45. A small alteration or excess of acidity could suppose a general imbalance. However, each organ has its own balance and the pH can be different from that of the blood.

  • Urine: 4.5 - 8
  • Saliva: 6.5 -7.5
  • Skin: 4.5 - 5.7
  • Bile: 7.5 - 8.6
  • Stomach: 1.2 - 3.2

Why should we respect the pH of the skin?

The skin protects the body from infections and external agents. Its protection capacity depends on the pH of the hydrolipidic mantle, a mixture of fatty acids and sweat that covers the outermost layer. Ideally it should have an acidic pH of 5.5, although it can vary according to the area of ​​the body and the type of skin. In fact, some studies show how some skins below 5 contain greater hydration and bacterial flora than those above 5.

An alteration in the pH of the hydrolipidic mantle can cause skin problems. Washing is one of the things that affects the most. For this reason, it is essential to take care of the skin with slightly acidic products, such as our GGcare Soapy Oil. With a value of 5.5 like that of the skin, it will help you clean it without damaging it and will contribute to the well-being of your body.
