Dry and sensitive skin has a more acidic pH, usually close to 4. This excess acidity causes redness and pimples, promotes dehydration and the appearance of certain diseases such as eczema. The skin is also less well protected and reacts more to external aggressions.

The lower the pH, the more the medium is oxidized. Dry skin has a very acidic pH, below 4.5. We know that dry skin has a sanguine temperament (Wet & hot because its environment is Acid/oxidized.)

For dry & sensitive skin that is characterized by positive charges, we select essential oils with a predominance of negative molecules to find a balance.

Negative biochemical families have the particularity of being calming and relaxing

Yunâni firming and antioxidant serum contains essential oils selected for their negative properties.

Monoterpenes meanwhile, balance the formula due to their positive properties contained in ginger. At low levels, they stimulate the digestive system, and are lymphatic and blood activators.
