What every dog-owner needs to know about pH balance

Bath-time Tips about pH Balance from The Underwater Dogs Haircare Company

Let’s face it, they’re just not made of the same stuff. Your dog loves you and they’re willing toph-balance sit, roll-over and play dead, but when it comes to what you wash them with, it’s important to understand the most important component that makes up their skin. ‘The Acid Mantle,’ or as sometimes referred – the pH balance. That slightly acidic layer covering their skin which protects your dog from nasty environmental contaminants like bacteria, parasites and virus.

Scientifically, the stratum corneum is the topmost layer of skin responsible for keeping our outer selves healthy and hydrated.

When we bathe with soaps and shampoos, this protective layer of acidic oil gets scrubbed away. When stripped from our bodies we’re left defenceless against hosts of micro-organisms which present us with dry, irritated and flaky skin. Sometimes these nasties leave your dog with an unsightly rash and terribly, terribly itchy…did I say itchy?

The upshot is, the canine acid mantle, their relative pH balance, it’s different from ours.

Canine pH levels should stand somewhere between 6.5 and 7.5, a more alkaline concentration than ours which sits somewhere between 4.2 and 5.6 the more acidic end of the pH scale.

Use a shampoo in the acidic pH range on their bods…and they’re in trouble.
