You’ve probably heard that pH balance is important, but you may be wondering what exactly pH is and how it relates to your deodorant.
What is pH? pH is the concentration of the hydrogen ion and determines how acidic or alkaline something is. If the pH is low, there is a high acidity, if the pH is high, there is a low acidity which means it is alkaline or basic.
How does pH relate to your body?
The body has natural levels of pH. These vary depending on the area of the body. For example, a normal internal pH is around 7.4 which is slightly higher than neutral. The top layer of your epidermis has a more acidic pH level at around 5.5 which helps protect the body from bacterial infections. These pH levels are very important for the health and well-being of the body. If the external pH drops too low or rises too high, it could result in increased body odor, skin disorders and irritation. If internal pH drops too low or rises too high, the metabolic processes of the body can no longer function.
How does pH relate to your deodorant?
Deodorants and other personal care products contain ingredients that can affect your pH level. When a person uses products that are too acidic or alkaline it can upset the natural pH levels of your skin. This can cause skin irritation and long-term skin issues. Even natural deodorants can cause pH imbalance. A great example of this is baking soda based natural deodorants which can cause serious skin damage. PH balanced deodorant helps eliminate odor while maintaining the natural pH levels of the skin.
