Body wash is an essential product in our daily hygiene routine. However, not all body washes are created equal. Some soaps contain harsh chemicals that can harm our skin and your bathroom’s natural stone environment. That’s why it’s crucial to choose a soap that is gentle on the skin and your stone. In this blog post, we’ll discuss the benefits of using pH-neutral soap and why it’s the best choice for healthy stone.
What is pH-Neutral Body Wash?
pH-neutral body wash is a type of soap that has a balanced pH level, which means it is neither acidic nor alkaline. The pH level of our skin is slightly acidic, ranging from 4.5 to 5.5. When we use soap that is too alkaline, it can disrupt the natural acidity of our skin, causing dryness and irritation. pH-neutral soap helps to maintain the natural acidity of the skin, keeping it healthy and moisturized. So what does this have to do with your natural stone shower or bath? Well, calcite-based stones like marble, travertine, limestone, etc are acid sensitive. Meaning that using products in your shower that are not pH-neutral could cause your stone more harm than good. Resulting in those pesky “water spots” aka etching.
The Benefits of pH-Neutral Body Wash
There are several benefits to using pH-neutral soap:
- Prevents Dryness and Irritation: pH-neutral hand soap helps to maintain the natural moisture barrier of the skin, preventing it from becoming dry and irritated.
- Protects the Skin’s Natural Barrier: The skin’s natural acidity acts as a barrier, protecting it from harmful bacteria and other pathogens. pH-neutral soap helps to maintain this protective barrier, keeping the skin healthy and preventing infections.
- Gentle on Sensitive Skin: pH-neutral soap is suitable for people with sensitive skin and those prone to allergies. It is free of harsh chemicals that can cause skin irritation and allergic reactions.
- Effective Cleansing: pH-neutral soap is just as effective at cleansing the skin as traditional soaps. It removes dirt, oil, and grime without stripping the skin of its natural oils.
- Safe for Natural Stone: Some natural stones are prone to etching when acidic cleaners, soaps, etc are used on, in, or around them. This damage to your stone is not easily fixable in some cases. Using a pH-neutral body wash in your bath or shower will keep your stone safe from any damage while using your body wash.
