I see people post things about the PH level in their cleansers, but how does one know? The ingredients does not list the PH levels, so how do you find out what the level is???? Also, what is the level I should be concentrating on? I know that PH is important for balancing your I am in search of a cleanser that balancing my PH levels. Surprised

Hi berguis
I was obsessed with the ph level of all my products some time ago...which led me to buy litmus paper to test out the ph level of my cleansers.
If you dont want to buy litmus papers then you can always email the company and ask them. Though I do remember one company who said that they couldnt give it out for some reason or another- it was either Burts Bees or Kate Somerville.
I cant answer on what level cleansers should be, but I think it should be the same level as the skin

As yeahyeah stated, you can email the company and request it. I've done that several times and usually get a quick response. The cleanser I'm currently using has a pH of 5.5, which is the same as the skin on your face. I like to use cleansers at this pH because it means I don't have to wait to apply products directly after washing.

gravity, stay the hell away from me

I currently use the Remergent Cleanser which states it has a pH of 6.3-6.7 which, according to Remergent is the optimum pH prior to the application of other products.
This is one of the few cleansers where it has stated the pH.
