Welchen pH-Wert hat das PureBee Oleogel?

What is the pH of the PureBee Oleogel?

We often get the following question from you: "What is the pH of your oleogel?". Some of you attach great importance to alkaline facial care or pH-neutral skin care.

However, this question cannot be answered quite so easily and unfortunately also not with a simple number. For those who don't want to read a lot: To put it simply, our oleogel has no pH value.

For those who want to know more: In contrast to conventional emulsions or creams, you cannot simply stick a dipstick into the oleogel and get the answer.

The great advantage of our oleogel prevents us from simply measuring the pH value. Our oleogel is anhydrous. This has great advantages for the skin, since no water supply from the outside means an increase in skin moisture from the inside. As a result, the skin is cared for in the long term and not just for a short period of time. In fact, pH as we know it is only defined for water (or aqueous solutions, such as creams containing water). The pH value refers to H+ ions in the water. The more H+ ions in the solution, the lower the pH. That's why you often find the simplified statement online: "Oils have no pH value".

In principle, however, every liquid has a pH value, although this varies greatly and is not comparable to the pH value of aqueous solutions and is not as important for the skin as the pH value of water. The whole thing is a very complex topic and since the 1950s scientists around the world have been working on developing a system for measuring the pH value that works for any liquid. In organic liquids, like the oils we use in the oleogel, the pH is very different than in water (or creams and emulsions) as they have far fewer mobile protons and the pH in water basically goes up related free protons. Therefore, one could say that our oleogel has no pH, at least not comparable to the pH that we know.

We have customers who usually swear by alkaline skin care, as well as customers who prefer pH-skin-neutral or even acidic care and who tolerate our oleogel very well and are big fans. If you are unsure, we recommend that you simply test it and therefore also offer a 5ml mini jar.
