🔆Very Important: The pH of a product only indicates whether it is acidic or basic. It can’t predict how your skin will respond to it. Other factors (like the overall formula & the type of surfactant used) still need to be taken into consideration.
.
🔆Cleansers with a slightly acidic pH of 4.5-5.5 are particularly ecommended for people with #acne, #rosacea, eczema, or dry skin, but everyone can benefit from a cleanser with a pH in that range (or at least no higher than 6.5--I wouldn't personally go that high since I am acne-prone...see why below👇
.
🔆The acid mantle of our skin is slightly acidic, with an average pH of 4.7 (Lambers, et al., 2006). Cleansers with a slightly acidic pH help to maintain the skin’s natural environment & protect the acid mantle. Disrupting the acid mantle can lead to acne, inflammation, atopic dermatitis, dehydrated or dry skin, skin sensitivity, & even fine lines.
.
🔆Acne grows well at pH values between 6 and 6.5 & when pH drops to 5.5, its growth noticeably decreases (Korting & Braun-Falco, 1996). Skin at 5.5 pH is better at preventing the growth of bacteria than skin at 6.5 pH (90% of bacteria prevented vs 60%, Schittek et al 2001).
.
🔆Raising your skin’s pH to a 6.0 or higher, leaves the skin open to dryness, infection, & damage on a perpetual basis. *Long-term* use of cleansers with a high pH can result in irritation that is great enough to cause hyperpigmentation (Baranda et al., 2002)
.
👩🏼‍🔬Fun fact 👨‍💻
The pH level scale is logarithmic – meaning each 1-unit increase represents a 10-fold increase.

    @iluvhp87 I personally wouldn’t use it consistently long term but I don’t see anything wrong with using it intermittently.

    @beamwonder I almost wish I hadn’t used the sample of the cleanser bc now I really want it!

    @goalstogetglowing Yeah I know how you feel it's pricey but Vanessa its well worth the purchase. Even as a one off! or to alternate between cheaper cleansers to bring the yearly cost down 😜 ❤️ ( which I do sometimes when I over spend on pricier serums).

    Love this! It’s funny....as an acne sufferer and five time accutane user 😳, I was so hesitant to use any of the BR cleansers. Would they get my skin “clean”? My skin has significantly changed since I started cleansing with Lait VIP O2 (and Lait U). I know it’s the other products as well but I attribute the cleansers to a lot of the balancing.

    Yay more ph tests I love these!! Really wish the tatcha cleanser was lower in pH. How did you like it on your skin?

  • 4w ago skinminimalist skinminimalist

    BR VIP O2 is my current fave cleanser (followed by is clinical Cleansing complex & the Matcha Hemp hydrating cleanser) ❤️

    Love your detail reviews, all of a sudden I've started breaking out again 😞 I feel like buying the BR VIp 02 cleanser or the kehils one I've heard they do a good milk cleanser too.

    Do you have a tool to measure the hydration level on our face?

    Yeah that Tatcha cleanser felt a tad drying. Makes sense. Thank you for doing this. pH is helpful information.

  • 4w ago rileyannbrown rileyannbrown

    THIS IS AMAZING

  • 4w ago goalstogetglowing goalstogetglowing

    @sashalaa since the camellia one is an oil cleanser (and not water based) it wouldn’t be appropriate to test the pH. But the good news is that it won’t wreak havoc on your acid mantle

  • 4w ago goalstogetglowing goalstogetglowing

    @linuxess nope 🤷🏼‍♀️

  • 4w ago goalstogetglowing goalstogetglowing

    @dishydecorator that’s awesome!

  • 4w ago goalstogetglowing goalstogetglowing

    Sad to see the Tatcha cleanser with a higher pH that I like. Guess I’ll pair it with my BR PIGM 400 with it

  • 3w ago estela.beauty.world estela.beauty.world

    How do you test the products with HP pencil ? Meaning how to use the tool to test on products 😊 I know there is tools specially for cosmetic products but this seems like a water ph tester I have one too

  • 3w ago littlegreenjuice littlegreenjuice

    Hi I have a question, I’m in the process of trying to find a cleanser or two to alternate between. I have combo oily/dry skin in some areas and struggle with clogged pores and blackheads. I just recently bought the P50 to try and help with that and will be getting the Paula’s choice 2% BHA to add to my routine as well. Im still searching for a cleanser I like and a moisturizer that doesn’t leave me greasy all day. Would you be able to recommend some products? I was think the BR milk cleanser. Would so appreciate some of your knowledge!

  • 1w ago goalstogetglowing goalstogetglowing

    @taylorfrosch the @kravebeauty matcha cleanser would be a great option.

    After three years of study and practice we found that 5.5 is the ideal pH for both cleanser and moisturiser. Even with niacinamide at 5.5 the half life is 1000 days (well beyond the 2 year shelf life). Your mileage may vary though as so e people do not tolerate it.
