about skin pH 5.5

What is skin pH?

You know that the normal body temperature is 37 degrees,
the normal blood pressure is 120/80 similarly the skin has a pH value of 5.5.

The pH is measured on the pH bar 0 indicating acidic and 14 indicating alkaline. The pH of water is 7 which is neutral. Normal, healthy skin has a pH of 5.5 which is slightly acidic and Sebamed products also have a pH of 5.5.

pH 5.5 leads to soft and smooth skin, aids in skin renewal and imparts a healthy glow to the skin and guards skin from infections.

What does pH value 5.5 mean?

The skin's acid protection mantle protects against harmful environmental influences and pathogens. A neutral pH value harms this protective barrier function and can in the worst case even destroy the skin's surface, i.e. lead to dehydration, irritation and allergies. pH neutral - pH value 7- is not the right value to keep skin healthy. Skin exposed to pH neutral products needs several hours in order to regenerate again. With modern care substances humidity can be regained and a protective barrier function restored. Nevertheless, with pH neutral products these effects are diminished and neutralized.

Optimal protection and compatibility with the skin is only achieved with a pH value of 5.5. Many consumers assume that pH neutral products are skin compatible, i.e. skin friendly. As a matter of fact such products represent a wide variety of pH values, among them also very acidy or leachy ones that can severely damage sensitive skin. Sometimes the pH value can also change during storage time. All Sebamed products guarantee a strict sustainability of the pH value 5.5.
