Have you ever wondered if using a bar of soap to wash your face is ok for your skin? Here's why you may want to check the labels for their pH value and ingredients before using them! (1)Skin's pH naturally sits between 4.6-5.5 pH. However, some bar soaps contain binders with a pH of 9-10, making them alkaline. Using it can disrupt your skin's pH balance and cause your skin to become dry and irritated. (2) Can cause breakouts. Certain ingredients in bar soap can rob your skin of too much moisture, causing your skin to produce more sebum. This can lead to clogged pores and breakouts. (3) Triggers skin allergies or sensitivities. Bar soaps often contain fragrances that sensitize your skin if you're prone to allergic reactions.
