It turns out that pH isn’t just something that you had to learn in seventh grade science class that you were never going to use in the real world. It’s actually an important thing to consider when it comes to skin care. Your skin has a naturally acidic barrier that helps protect the inner layers. If you choose a product with an extreme pH, it can mess up this barrier, and in turn, your face. You might not think that cleansers and other products have pH’s, but most of them do have measurable pH’s; a lot of them just aren’t prominently printed on the bottle. To spare you from conducting your own pH’s tests, we’ve rounded up the pH-balanced skin care products.
Here are 11 pH-balanced skin care products that will keep your complexion looking its best:
This cleanser is the perfect partner to your Clarisonic brush. The gel formula is suited to those with normal-to-oily skin thanks to the willowbark extract and beta-hydroxy acid formula. It clarifies and brightens skin and, most importantly, is also pH-balanced.

Are you a fan of cleansing bars instead of pump formulas? Then try this bar. It’s gentle enough to be used on sensitive skin because it’s soap and alkali free. It also has a pH of 5.5, which is ideal for healthy skin.
