Why are PH levels important in skincare?

PH is suchan important factor in skincare that is highly unthought about. Our skin has a protective layer on it called the “Acid Mantle” This is made up of your skins sweat and oils. The Acid Mantle has a PH of 5.5 which is slightly acidic and this acts as a barrier to bacteria, viruses and other potential contaminants that might penetrate the skin. When disrupted this can cause many skin problems such as skin dryness, redness, tightness and dehydration. 

Skincare products that are to high or to low in PH can damage your skin. All EXTRACT products are PH balanced for your skin. Using botanical ingredients rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that will help repair your acid mantle.
