Organic Skin Cleanser


What does pH balance mean and why is it important to healthy skin? 

The pH measurement of a product describes how alkaline or acidic the product is. This is important because our skin has a very delicate pH balance range of 4.2 to 5.6. Using a product with a pH outside of this range may destroy the layer of skin known as the acid mantle.

The acid mantle is essentially the sebum (or oil) on our skin's surface. Its job is keep skin hydrated and to protect it against damaging elements of the environment like wind, sun or bacteria. Many people are unaware of the acid mantle and its vital role in skin health.

If you have acne, skin allergies, eczema, rosacea, or sensitive skin that gets irritated easily, chances are the pH balance of your skin is off – often due to harsh facial cleansers. The acid mantle can help protect the skin against:

  • the formation of blackheads
  • blemishes--because it can inhibit bacterial growth and fungus
  • rosacea, allergic reactions, acne, and other disorders
  • premature aging and wrinkles.

Poor pH balance may be a strong contributor to any of these skin challenges.

Besides a good pH balance, be sure your facial cleanser is non-drying, vegan, unscented, gluten-free (for those of us who are gluten-sensitive), and contains none of the following:

  • Glycols
  • Parabens
  • Urea
  • Sulfates
  • Phthalates.

Organic face wash, like NovAurora's Soap-Free Cleanser, is a good alternative to standard cleansers. It is strong enough to clean the skin and keep pores clear and tight, without over-drying. It is an excellent skin smoother and softener. And it is pH balanced.
