DIY Warnings for baking soda and skin care...

You may see a lot of DIY recipes on the web for home remedy “cure alls” like the one below for baking soda (everything from blackheads and large pores to face cleansing)…there is a reason why formulators have backgrounds in chemistry. Not that it is a requirement but what you use on your skin, and in your body has more effects than you may be aware of…

For example this recipe for baking soda cleanser, which if you click on the link below, you'll see the pH of baking soda, you will find a pH level of 9. Your skin has an acidic pH level for a good reason, bacteria love alkaline environments, especially dark moist ones, like the pores of the skin. This is why cleansers and products that are not pH correct, require you to use a toner after use, to correct the pH level.

So if you’re going to experiment with home remedies (including egg which has a pH of 8) you may want to consider either using products that are pH correct to your skin (all NaturDerm products are pH correct) or make sure to use an acidic pH toner.
