Alkaline Skin Creams and Soaps May Damage Your Skin

Ultra Balm Founder Urges Public to Check the pH Level of their Skin Care Products

 
PRLog - Feb. 25, 2013 - Clearwater, FL—The founder of Ultra Balm (www.ultrabalm.com), a natural skin care product designed to relieve dry skin, says that many soaps and skin creams on the market may actually make skin problems worse. The pH value of the cream or soap is said to be the determining factor.

The pH of a substance, which stands for “power” or “potential of Hydrogen”, is the measure from 0 to 14 of the acidity or alkalinity of the substance. A neutral substance such as distilled water has a pH of 7. The pH of any acid is below 7, and any alkali has a pH above 7.

“Healthy skin has what is called an 'acid mantle', a natural skin protection with a pH of 4.5 to 6,” says Vicki Gailzaid, the founder of Ultra Balm. “This slight acidity helps prevent skin problems by discouraging harmful bacteria and fungus. What many people don't realize is that many skin creams and all soaps are alkaline, which means they act to neutralize the acid mantle and remove your skin's natural protection.”

Gailzaid insists this information should be given up front by manufacturers. “Few skin care products or soaps today actually state on the packaging what the pH level is,” she points out. “They might say 'pH balanced', but that is a marketing ploy—balanced to what pH level? A pH is a number. They should say what the number is.”

Asked about her own products' pH, Gailzaid says, “As we state clearly in our product information, Ultra Balm is a healthy skin cream that maintains a pH of 6. This is ideal for preserving the skin's acid mantle and fighting off infection, preventing acne and other skin problems. We use natural ingredients such as aloe and lanolin, and many of our customers have found UltraBalm to be the best product for dry skin problems. We make it our priority to provide a healthy, effective product that uses the highest quality ingredients known for natural skin care.”
