The philosophy behind pH advantage stresses the importance of the natural acid balance of the skin, commonly referred to as the skin’s pH. Many common cosmetic products actually have a pH level that is much too high to be effective on the skin. By formulating products that have the ideal pH, the skin can better utilize and experience all of the benefits of good skin care.
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.
pH Advantage strives towards creating full regimens consisting of convenient and easy to use everyday products that have all of the benefits you want with none of the fuss. For best results, use these products in combination in order to maximize on your skin’s potential.

Learn More About pH Advantage
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.

55+Gender: FSkin Type: combinationgood for problem skin - 9/8/2012 8:14:58 AM This product has helped clear up problem areas on my skin and does not dry it out.

45-54Gender: FSkin Type: normalGreat Product - 5/26/2012 8:09:45 PM I have been using this for my hyperpigmentation. I just ordered my 3rd bottle. It works very well. I just have a resistant type and I constantly need to use something for my pigmentation problems. I use it mixed with a vitamin C serum. I have found it works better.thelacey New York, NY Pros: absorbs quickly, gentle, lightweight, smooth textureOverall Rating Price/Value Ease of Use
25-34Gender: FSkin Type: combinationLightens spots and clears complexion, not v harsh - 2/29/2012 7:10:20 AM I usually use PCA SKIN Pigment Gel, but had to change as that is no longer available. The other products I've tried were okay but not as effective. This product, the pH Advantage Pigmentation Fader, is better than the PCA, though. My spots are lighter and skin has cleared up considerably. I use it once a day (at night) with a heavy moisturizer and, although it's more effective, find it to be much gentler than any of the other hydroquinone products I've used. Highly recommended.detailedtruth Brooklyn, ny Pros: unscented Cons: wateryOverall Rating Price/Value Ease of Use
25-34Gender: FSkin Type: combinationwhat exactly was this supposed 2 do - 8/16/2011 11:25:41 AM this product is not worth the money at all. it does nothing i've purchased cheaper items that actually did something. i'm actually stating to question the brand as a whole since the free sample they provided (the lip treatment) too was a complete flop.detailedtruth Brooklyn, ny Pros: absorbs quickly, lightweight Cons: not at all moisturizing, makes lips drier than before, pointy applicator, does not at all plump, ridiculously expensiveOverall Rating Price/Value Ease of Use
25-34Gender: FSkin Type: combinationwhat is the point of this! - 8/9/2011 12:14:40 PM I received this product as a free gift with purchase and got all excited to try it but boy is it not worth $30. its supposed to hydrate plump and smooth.....it does none of those things. it actually leaves your lips feeling more chapped, it does not have any kind of moisturizing feel to it. the applicator is so weird its a pointy nozzle...how does that make sense for a lip product? this product in my opinion shouldn't even be priced at 2 dollars.CosmeticQueen Melbourne, Australia Pros: absorbs quickly, smooth textureOverall Rating Price/Value Ease of Use

A little bit goes such a long way.

35-44Gender: FSkin Type: oilyAddresses all eye concerns - 10/14/2009 11:34:26 PM By far the best I cream I have ever used. I have been buying now for about about two years, maybe more. Address all the concerns I had including dark circles both below and on my eye lids, puffiness, and fine lines. When I tell people I'm almost 40 they look at me like I'm crazy! They think I'm in my late 20s early 30s!MsCat Providence, RI Pros: gentle but effective, just need a little bit each use Cons: may not be good on very sensitive skinOverall Rating Price/Value Ease of Use
45-54Gender: FSkin Type: oilyJust Right Cleanser! - 4/23/2009 5:12:47 PM I have oily, acne-prone skin, & I've found that cleansers formulated especially for my skin condition can be too harsh, and ultimately don't help/irritate/dry my skin in the long run. Am I glad I tried pH Advantage Glycolic Gel Cleanser! When I wash my face with this, I know it's working because my skin feels soft but not dried out, and the results are impressive! My skin has improved dramatically - the more I use this cleanser, the more acne & acne scars disappear, and less new stuff forms--my sisters (my toughest critics)now give my skin glowing reviews whenever I see them! Beyond controlling acne, it has improved the texture of my skin immensely--I'm even thinking of trying some mineral makeup again (which looked terrible on my skin the last time I tried it). If you've had trouble finding a good cleanser that gives visible results, give this one a try!MaryAnneOverall Rating
Really Works - 11/29/2008 5:00:07 PM I have been fighting age spots for the past 3 years. I have tried many brands that claim to fade hyperpigmentation. This really works and in using it for a month, my daughter informed me today that I no longer have dark patches on my skin. I am really pleased with this lightener!DDOverall Rating
