The Fuss about PH

We have all heard that there is a big fuss about the PH of our bodies and most of us are using PH adjusters, or look at products that secures a healthy PH, but what is the fuss all about and why is the PH of our bodies so important.

First of all we need to understand that different systems in our body requires a different PH to stay healthy.  Your blood has a PH of between 7.35 and 7.45. A variance in this PH balance can cause many symptoms.

When the PH is too high you may experience:

  • muscle twitching, hand tremor, muscle spasms
  • numbness and tingling
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • lightheadedness
  • confusion

A PH that is too low may cause:

  •  rapid breathing,
  • fatigue, and
  • confusion

When Elim developed their Pedicure range we took into consideration how important the PH of the skin is and this is why the Tonic has to be used with the Neutralizer.  The Callus Tonic takes the PH of the skin to 11 to dissolve dead skin cells but we have to bring the skin back to its normal PH of 5.5.

Just soaking in water will not balance the PH, you need a PH neutralizer.

Through years of selling this product we have come to learn that the product has become a SOS in the salon and it is used not only to restore PH, but to save many uncomfortable situations.

This ranges from,

  • Sunburned skin
  • Chicken pox
  • Mosquito bites
  • Eczema and skin irritations
  • Psoriasis
  • Acne and many more

The Elim Neutralizer should be in every salon room and can comfortably be used in any situation where there are skin abnormalities.


Lets first look at why do we have acne or pimples and what causes this?  According to


The main cause of acne is excess secretion of sebum and pH in this case helps to control acne. The balanced pH of 5.5 helps to create a healthy environment, which keeps the bacteria at bay. Acne causing Propioinbacterium bacteria grows when the pH of the skin is more alkaline

Using the Neutralizer will balance your skin and a healthy PH means a healthy skin.
