Most Joonya customers are above average when it comes to researching the best products for their baby. One thing usually not known is the PH level of the products that come in contact with your baby’s delicate, beautiful skin.
When a baby is born, its skin is usually close to a neutral PH (7.0) but rapidly becomes more acidic due to it being the body’s first line of defence against toxins. The increased acidity helps to kill microbes, and its no wonder that newborns with a higher skin PH often end up with acne in their early days.
Healthy people have a skin PH between 4.5 and 6, and the ideal PH for babies is considered to be 5.5. Many products are not optimized for baby skin, and can be either too acidic or alkaline. Too acidic and you risk irritation, while too alkaline and you will dry the skin, stripping away its natural oils and increasing the risk of infection.
Joonya wipes have been optimized for the PH of baby skin, and are one reason why our wipes are the preferred choice for babies with sensitive skin.
