What’s Your pH IQ?

Do you know what pH means? It stands for “potential of hydrogen.” It is the measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a substance. It is the acid-alkaline ratio, a balance between positively charged ions (acid-forming) and negatively charged ions (alkaline-forming). The lower the pH, the more acidic the substance. The higher the pH, the more alkaline it is. Cells extract nutrients from the blood only when the correct pH levels are maintained. That’s why it is important that skin-care substances be the same pH as our skin, so that the nutrients in the ingredients will get to the cells and nourish the body.
