Washing with soap - a conventional skin cleansing product for over 2000 years - destroys the skin's natural protective acid mantle and makes it susceptible to infections, irritation, allergy and dehydration. That's why dermatologists forbid the use of soap on sensitive or diseased skin. In contrast, the right skin care can make the skin more resistant to daily stress and prevent problems with the skin. The basis of sebamed skin care is soap-free cleanser with pH value of 5.5, supplemented by a skin care regimen suitable for the skin type.
Skin care is more than cosmetics because it not only maintains or improves the beautiful
appearance of our skin but also supports and reinforces the protective functions of our skin.
Health care begins on the skin and this means care which is specially suited to the special features of the skin,
strengthens its protective mechanisms and helps it to cope with stress.
Only healthy skin can perform its function and withstand constant stress.
That's why skin care is more than cosmetics. Skin care can keep the skin healthy, strengthen its power of
resistance and maintain it attractive appearance. Because only healthy skin is beautiful.
pH is the value of acid or alkali measured on a scale of 1-14. pH 7 being neutral.
Lower numbers are increasing acidic, higher numbers are increasing alkaline.
Our skin has a special feature: its surface is slightly acidic. On average the pH value
of the skin is 5.5. Harmful bacteria and fungi do not tolerate the acidic pH value and are displaced by normal
micro-organisms. Another effect of the pH value of 5.5 is that the lipids in the horny layer prevents water loss
from the inside and penetration of pollutants of irritants from the outside. Thus the skin's acid mantle performs
an important protective function.
German made Sebamed pH 5.5 soap-free skin care range has been scientifically developed to the same pH range of human healthy skin, which has a slightly acidic pH value of 5.5, to care for your skin without disturbing its natural acidic mantle. Cleansing our skin with Sebamed pH 5.5 products stabilize the acidic protection barrier, preserve the skin's ecological balance, and sustain its protective function.
Today, over 70 Sebamed products are sold in more than 80 countries and cater to the care and cleansing needs of every skin type imaginable from the delicate skin of newborns to the mature skin of old people.
