Above this lies the dermis with connective tissue, blood vessels, nerves, and muscle cells. The epidermis consists of a lower basal layer and the horny layer. The overlying water-fat film, which called the protective acid mantle, together with forms the skin barrier.
It protects against environmental influences and stabilizes the skin’s moisture balance. If this protective shield destroyed, the skin loses moisture, visibly dries out, and becomes more sensitive to external factors.
Oily and dehydrated skin needs special care products

Dry skin is happy about emulsions with a high-fat content because they leave a light film of fat on the skin and reduce the release of the skin’s own moisture. The fat also protects the horny layer and makes it smoother again.
Cleansing products for dry skin should get the acidic protective coat
Only products that do not damage the skin barrier or the protective acid mantle are suitable for cleaning dry skin. In any case, moisturizing agents should be included. What is important here is the so-called pH value.
The protective acid mantle of healthy skin has a pH value between 4 and 6.5. Below 7 the pH value considered acidic, above 7 it is the basic or alkaline range. Water has a neutral value of pH 7.
It is thus above the pH value of the protective acid mantle, which explains that the skin can feel drier after washing with water and should be re-greased. Conventional soaps have a pH value between 8 and 11 and are therefore unsuitable.
