I'm writing today's blog to answer customers' inquiries. Our customers ask often "What is low pH and why is low pH good for skin?", though Low pH is the widely dispersed word among K-beauty lovers.
Before answering the questions, you have to know about pH Levels.
<The pH Scale>
Look at this graph. pH 7 is neutral such as water. Under pH 7 is acidic and over pH 7 is alkaline.
But, in the skincare world, 'Low pH' doesn't mean strongly acidic, it means slightly acid between pH 5.5~6, similar to your skin's pH level.
Maintaining pH 5.5~6 is indispensable work to keep your skin healthy because bacteria from outside that threats skin health is hard to be alive in a slightly acidic environment!
