List of Products

Below is a list of skincare products that I’ve tested that have an acidic pH level that is lower than 6.0. I’ve placed products into categories. Categories are in alphabetical order as are products (by brand).

If you are new to my blog, then please click here to learn more about the pH level of skin, why I created this blog, and why you should only use products with a pH level lower than 6.0. If you are interested in buying pH strips, these are the ones I use. Please note that these strips aren’t a perfect science so the pH levels noted below are estimates only. There is also some variation between batches of products and a manufacturer may have made changes to their formula since I tested.

The majority of the products listed below are also silicone-free and sulfate-free.

    Mia, I am 76 years old next month and I thank you very, very much for doing this research for us. I don’t itch with Dove Sensitive bar, I hate the smell and do itch with Cetaphil bar, so I will go back to Vanicream bar soon. Believe it or not, my skin likes Dial White bar in the summer when I perspire and yes, I know about the triclosan. But thanks to you, I will return to Vanicream soon.
