You need to use pH balanced body wash if you have sensitive skin, eczema, and skin allergies. However, there are also real benefits in using pH balanced body wash even if you don’t have the skin sensitivities previously mentioned.

Always remember that skincare is personal.

What works for others may not work for you. But the truth is, you will benefit from using pH balanced body wash no matter what skin type you have.

What does pH balance mean?

When you say pH balance body soap the first thing that comes to mind is a watery, organic body wash that doesn’t bubble. That may be true years ago, but not today.

Most botanical body wash today use premium ingredients that’s full of nutrients, moisturizers, and can lather like over-the-counter soaps. It’s still natural but you can bet that they’re at the same level or even higher than chemical-laden soap.

The advantage of natural body wash is the pH balanced formulation. It means that it’s neither acidic or alkaline.

The happy spot is pH balance 5.5. Go below or above this and you might experience some dryness or oiliness in your skin.

Using pH balanced soap will keep your skin at the 5.5 pH level which means your skin is in a healthy balance. At pH level 5.5 you can be sure that your skin is softer, smoother, and hydrated.

Why use pH balanced body wash?

You need to use pH balanced body wash so you can protect the pH balance of your skin. Basic soap can strip your skin of its natural protection. The more you use regular soap, the more it strips the natural acidity and lipids of your skin.

Remember how you washed your face and you feel tight after using regular soap? That’s the feeling of the soap stripping away the natural oils in your face.

It’s just too harsh.

Thankfully that’s what most of us feel. Some people’s skin becomes itchy, they have acne breakouts, or their skin develops unsightly redness.

This is why we all need pH balanced body wash. We don’t need skin irritation or worse ruining our day needlessly. Natural products like pH balanced gel soap can help your skin achieve a balanced ecology thus making it’s natural barrier stronger, make it look healthier, and make it feel smoother.

How to choose a proper pH balanced shower gel

In order to find the proper pH balanced body wash you need to read the label. Look for 5.5pH as that’s the best level a body wash should have. Always remember that low pH is better than high pH.

Ignore the drugstore soaps as they have high pH and are too alkaline.

You really can’t expect much from cheap soap as they’re mass produced and not really aimed at people with sensitive skin.

Once you have found a pH balanced soap, just to be cautious, you need to apply a few drops of the gel soap on the back of your hands. Leave it for a few minutes to test if you’re having an allergic reaction to the body wash or not.

Skincare goes beyond pH balanced body wash

Lifestyle changes are in order if you want to have healthier skin. Using a pH balanced body wash is a good start.

But if you have sensitive skin you also need to see a dermatologist. And you need to have a good night’s sleep, eat food rich in vitamin E, avoid some greasy food and add more green leafy vegetables in your diet.
