From pimples and wrinkles to eczema and psoriasis, an out-of-balance pH balance can cause a wide array of skin problems.
pHat 5.5 aims to solve all of these skin conditions with a simple solution: a proper pH balance of 5.5 on the pH scale.
Here is how this all works:
Your skin's outermost layer, called the "Stratum Corneum", is covered with a thin film called the "acid mantle". The acid mantle is responsible for keeping in moisture and nutrients, while also defending your skin against harmful environmental irritants and toxins. It is an essential part of your skin's biology, so when something is off, namely, its pH balance, things can go very wrong for your skin, very fast.
When the mantle becomes too alkaline, which would be above 5.5, in the range of 7 to 14, the skin becomes dry and sensitive and susceptible to conditions like eczema, psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis, flaky skin, and so on. When it becomes too acidic, in the range of 1 to 4, which is significantly rarer than being too alkaline, the skin is prone to intense breakouts, and increased sensitivity and inflammation.
The magic number is 5.5, and all pHat 5.5 products are carefully balanced at this exact level for your skin's benefit.
