What does pH mean in skincare? 
Healthy skin is balanced skin. A product with a pH level around 5.5, which aligns to our natural pH levels, will leave skin perfectly healthy, happy, and well balanced. Products that hit higher on the pH scale may cause damage to the outer, protective moisture barrier of the skin, also known as the acid mantle. A damaged acid mantle can cause inflammation, acne, eczema, dryness, flakiness, and even premature aging. Cleansers containing soap often have a pH of 9 or 10 and leave skin feeling dry and tight. Moral of the story... stay balanced, stay beautiful.

What are the benefits of charcoal? 
Charcoal works similar to soap in that it binds with dirt to clean the skin. The difference is charcoal goes deeper into the skin than regular soap without the dryness and damage. It gently removes dirt and oil from the pores and makes them appear smaller. It’s also great for removing water-resistant SPF products, such as the face sticks and makeup.
