Our newest cleansing line features sub-acid cleansing. Learn about its benefits!
Let’s quickly review what pH is! pH measures how basic or acidic a solution is, based on its hydrogen ion concentration. A pH of 7 is neutral, while a high pH of >7 is basic. A low pH of <7 is acidic.
The Near Skin pH Balancing Cleansing Line contains a sub-acid base, at a slightly acidic pH of 5.
But why is sub-acid cleansing beneficial?
Bacteria that accumulates on the surface of our skin have difficulty surviving in acidic environments. Thus, maintaining the sub-acidity of the skin is key to keeping it clean and healthy. The mild sub-acid cleansers of pH 5 protect the skin from harmful agents.
The cleansing line contains a skin-friendly Amino Acid-based Humectant that moisturizes and hydrates the skin. It also contains a Natural Saponin Complex that cleans the skin, and Seorak Mineral Water that protects it.
**It is important to note that these cleansing products are not for removing makeup– they’re for the second step of your cleansing routine. Once you have removed your makeup, it is recommended that you use a separate cleansing product to nourish and balance your skin while further cleansing it.
