Learn More About pH Advantage
Dr. Cohen founded pH Advantage skincare with the goal of providing the general public with the same high quality active ingredients that had benefited his patients. As a surgeon, Dr. Cohen was especially impressed by the outstanding results of concentrated ingredients following surgery. The pH Advantage line only contains active ingredients that have been proven to be effective in clinical settings. Today the company is committed to providing its customers with concentrated, clinical grade formulas that were developed to produce results.
Skin is naturally acidic, with a pH of around 4. This acidic outer layer, known as the acid mantle, is part of the body's defense against environmental pollutants and bacteria that can land on the skin. When the acid mantle is compromised, the skin can become vulnerable to infections and breakouts.
Dr. Cohen, the founder of pH Advantage, believes that, in order to be effective, skin care products need to respect the skin's natural acidity. They must deliver active ingredients at a pH level that corresponds with that of the skin.
The key to the brand’s effectiveness is an understanding of bioavailability, which affects the amount of a substance absorbed by the skin – the greater the bioavailability, the higher the level of absorption. Bioavailability increases when a skin treatment is produced at the optimal pH level. Every product within the pH Advantage range is calibrated to maximize the bioavailability of its active ingredients.
The active ingredients contained in pH Advantage products have all been extensively tested and proven to be effective on all types of skin. Key ingredients that feature within pH Advantage treatments include glycolic acid, hyaluronic acid, vitamins A, C and E, and salicylic acid. Each of these is delivered at the most appropriate pH level to maximize its effectiveness.
pH Advantage allows individuals to create a fuss-free regimen that can easily be incorporated into their everyday lives. The formulations within this no-nonsense range reflect those that are used by Dr. Cohen when he treats his own patients.
