pH 5.5

Even with numerous amount of good ingredients, we should not forget the importance of pH level. The skin’s barrier, which is known as the acid mantle, is the first defence mechanism against germs, pollutions, toxins and bacteria as well as keeping moisture. To work its best, the acid mantle should be slightly acidic, at a 5.5pH. When it’s too alkaline, skin becomes dry and may even get eczema. Skin may also be more susceptible to disease, viruses and fungal infections.

So, we know the importance of this aspect and fine-tuned our formula to the pH level where your skin can receive all the goodness from our ingredients.

Strictly no animals testing or by-products.

 

 

What's out

Now you know what’s in our formulation, (in case you have not, feel free to browse our What’s In page), we believe the true nature and principle of Embracing Earth’s Essence is to harness carefully selected naturally derived ingredients as well as to exclude additives that could potentially cause discomfort to the largest organ of our body, our skin. The list might be very long if we to list out all additives we have excluded, so let us focus on those commonly found in body care products.

Due to trade secrets, companies are not require to disclose the chemicals used in Fragrance/Perfumes. Phthalates may be added to produce lasting scent.
