For this week’s pH product I will be testing Simple’s Micellar Cleansing Water. In case you missed my chemistry lesson on pH, water should have a neutral pH of ~7. However being a cleansing product filled with micelles (surfactants), I was curious if this would hold true.
After conducting my litmus paper test I determined that the pH of Simple’s micellar water was about ~6/7. I found this result interesting for a few reasons, first, I was surprised the litmus paper didn’t show more of the green/yellow color for 7, mainly because being a cleaning product I assumed it would be on the basic side. However the more I think about this, it’s probably what makes this such a great cleanser is that because of its neutral reading, does nothing but purely clean our skin. So if you haven’t guessed by my numerous ravings on the blog about this product, now that I’ve determined the neutral pH, I would highly recommend this pH neutral cleansing product for your skin!
