The Acid Mantle: Your Skin's Natural Defense System

What is pH 5.5?

Our skin has a special feature: its surface is slightly acidic.

The surface of the skin is composed of a hydrolipid protective layer (the acid mantle) which has an average pH value of 5.5. The acidic pH value stabilizes the skin's function as a barrier, locks in hydration, and wards off pathogens that can cause disease.


Intensive protection combined with optimal skin care is essential to maintain your skin's delicate equilibrium. This is why Sebamed has developed specialized products for your face and body, with a pH value of 5.5. All Sebamed products have a slightly acidic value of 5.5 which stabilizes this barrier function.

Healthy skin is beautiful skin

Changes in the pH value of the skin can weaken the protective function of the acid mantle. This promotes skin infection, dehydration, skin irritation and allergies.

Listen to your skin

Skin cleansing with neutral or alkaline products can disturb your skin's physiological protective layer leading to dehydration, impaired barrier function and exposure to the elements.


It's not soap! It's Sebamed!


For thousands of years, soap has been the most common washing agent.

However, traditional soap is alkaline, and using it can change the skin's natural pH, deplete moisture and lipids from the skin, and damage the protective acid mantle - which may lead to irritation, stinging, and further stress to sensitive skin.

In 1967, Dr. Heinz Maurer pioneered the first commercial soap-free cleansing bar with a pH value of 5.5 to support the skin's natural protective layer.

Today, Sebamed provides comprehensive skin care solutions for all age groups, which support the skin's natural barrier with pH 5.5. The skin care solutions include Age Defense, Clear Face, and Baby Sebamed. All Sebamed products are clinically tested on sensitive skin and are not tested on animals.
