The protective layer formed by sebum on the surface of the skin is called acid mantle. Its pH varies naturally, with an average around 4.8, and it can be affected by a great number of factors such as skin moisture, sweat, sebum, age, as well as detergents, application of cosmetic products, and occlusive dressings.  Maintaining the natural acid mantle is important for both permeability barrier formation and antimicrobial defense. Failure to readily regenerate the acid part of the epidermis results in itching and cracking of the epidermis.

GENU pHresh™ DF pectin is a unique proprietary natural polysaccharide extracted from citrus fruit. It possesses strong pH buffering capacity combined with a long-term alkali scavenging ability, which helps quickly restore and stabilize cutaneous pH over time.

Clinical in vitro and in vivo testing on GENU pHresh™ DF pectin will be shared on non-irritation, buffering capacity, moisturization, long term protective effect on skin barrier and skin pH after soap cleansing.

Applications for GENU pHresh™ DF pectin include facial and body lotions and creams, shaving products, deodorants, hair & scalp care, liquid soaps, feminine hygiene…
