Abstract

Human cutaneous pH is the result of a fine regulation, in fact several mechanisms provide for the maintainment of the physiological value of 5.5. Considerable oscillations in cutaneous pH could hesitate in damages to the skin barrier. In this article we analyze the effect of products employed in chemical peels on cutaneous pH and the results on pH correction with amphoteric solutions that are tested in association with water and alone. We conclude that amphoteric solutions alone are more effective in correcting cutaneous pH after chemical peel and that those solutions are preferable to basic solutions that could damage the skin barrier overcorrecting the pH.
