pH Balanced Skin Is Healthy Skin!

Thea Skincare products are pH balanced to be kind on all skin types

You might remember studying pH in Chemistry at school, measuring how acidic or alkaline things were on the pH Scale - 1 is the most acidic, 14 is the most alkaline and 7 is neutral.  Our skin has a protective outer layer (the Acid Mantle) which is naturally acidic and generally has a pH of between 4.5 and 6 depending on the person.

It's very important to look after our Acid Mantle because it helps to prevent and fight infections, retain moisture and keep germs out. If the skin's pH balance is disrupted, it can cause skin conditions such as eczema, rosacea, extreme dryness or premature ageing.  Using skincare products that are not pH balanced can strip the skin of its natural oils and even make your skin more prone to acne.

Reassuringly, all Thea Skincare formulas are perfectly pH balanced for natural beauty - all products have a pH level of between 4.5 and 6 so as to not disrupt your skin's natural balance.

Choosing Oils, Moisturisers and Body Cremes that are great for your skin

As we age, our skin produces less natural oil (sebum) which can affect the Acid Mantle and its ability to protect the skin. To keep the outer layer of our skin healthy we need a good natural moisturiser. The best natural moisturisers are those which contain botanical oils such as Jojoba, Coconut, Palm Oil and Olive Oil - that work in harmony with our skin to 'top up' sebum levels. Take a look at Thea's Age Revival range to help keep your sebum levels healthy.

Antioxidants are such powerful anti-ageing ingredients!

Antioxidants work hard to protect and strengthen the skin's Acid Mantle, preventing premature ageing. Thea Skincare natural & organic products contain high levels of age-defying Antioxidants such as Vitamins A, C, and E, Rooibos Tea & Green Tea. For the best daily skincare routine that keeps your skin in tip-top condition, I recommend using a mild natural cleanser and moisturizer that is pH balanced and high in Antioxidants.

Thea Skincare has a range of natural and organic skincare products for every skin type. For those of you with sensitive or sun-damaged skin, try these gorgeous facial products:
