Frequently Asked Question
1.Which Restorative Facial Cleanser should I use for my skin type?
pHisoderm pH UP is used for oily skin types.
pHisoderm pH DOWN is used for dry skin types.

Do any of the pHisoderm Restorative Facial Cleansers contain Vitamin E?
pHisoderm pH DOWN and pH UP both contain Vitamin E to help moisturize dry, irritated skin. Because of its antioxidant activity, Vitamin E is vital in protecting skin cells from ultra violet light, pollution and other elements that produce cell damaging free radicals. Free radicals are believed to play a large role in the aging of skin, which makes the antioxidant activity in Vitamin E quite valuable to keep skin looking its best.

Are there any animal products or bi-products in these cleansers? Are these cleansers tested on animals?
All pHisoderm Restorative Cleanser have no trace of animal products or bi-products. pHisoderm is cruelty-free.
What is the pH of most typical bar soaps?
Many people use soap and water to clean their faces thinking this is the best way to clean skin, but what they may not realize is that generic bar soaps are highly alkaline, with a pH of 12, which isn’t beneficial to skin. Soapy water is commonly used to wash the face but it actually removes the natural oils from the skin. While it may leave skin with that clean feeling, soap is really just neutralizing skins acid pH and in doing so, stripping away its natural defense systems.
Are pHisoderm Cleanser fragrance free?
Both pHisoderm pH Down and pH Up are fragrance free.
What is the Acid Mantle and how does it relate to having healthy, pH balanced skin?
The acid mantle is a thin oily film, made up of sweat and sebum, which sits on top of the outmost layer of our skin and protects skin from bacteria entering. Many of the contaminants that might enter our skin, such as chemicals from the atmosphere and harmful bacteria, are alkaline in nature, which means they have a pH of higher than 7. When bacteria are killed by acid they can’t damage the skin but if you strip skin of its acidic mantle by using it becomes much easier for bacteria to find its way in. Our skin’s natural acidity neutralizes chemicals and bacteria, which is a necessary part of the body’s defense system.
The acid mantle becomes unbalanced with the use of strong alkaline soaps, cleansers and detergents. Excess perspiration may also be a factor. If you perspire more than average, your acid mantle will have a higher proportion of sweat compared to others, throwing skin of its natural balance.
Maintain skins acid mantle by:
- Using pH balanced skin care products
- Avoiding harsh soaps
- Frequently moisturizing with a slightly acidic moisturizer
- Protecting yourself from the sun
Maintaining both the acid mantle and skins pH is a fine balance, but vital to being able to neutralize harmful bacteria, which can lead to acne, infection, or irritation. pHisoderm Cleansers restore skin back to its natural balance to help maintain healthy looking and feeling skin.
