What is pH?
skins acid mantle is a very fine, slightly acidic film that lies on the surface
the skin and acts as a barrier to bacteria, viruses and other potential
contaminants that might penetrate the skin and cause infection. It's
secreted by sebaceous
glands and it makes the pH of the skin between 4.5 and 6.2, so it is acidic. This
is one of the reasons we need to be careful not to wash or
exfoliate too much as it can take day's for the acid mantle to repair itself.
