Amazing 🙌

Only water can have a pH! Nothing else. This is a scientific fact, yet many distort the facts for marketing purposes. If anyone wishes to publicly debate me on this, I would be happy to do so. I understand that some are attacking educators who share this information. Please don’t do that. Rather, please express your doubts/concerns directly to me and we will publicly debate the science behind pH. Also, feel free to share this post.

This is an excerpt from my book, Face-to-Face with Doug Schoon.

“The pH is a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of water. Water normally isn’t acid or alkaline; it’s exactly in the middle at the neutral point. Some people use the word “basic” instead of “alkaline”, but these terms are identical. It is very important to understand that only water can have a pH, nothing else. No exceptions. Only water and water-containing substance can have pH, nothing else can. For instance, nail oil would not have a pH because it contains no water but if you mix the oil with water to make a lotion, the lotion will have a pH, which will come directly from the water in the mixture. Dissolving other substances into water can change the water’s pH to become more acid or more alkaline, depending on what’s added.

Interestingly, when you measure pH, you measure how much acid or alkaline substance is dissolved into the water at that moment. For example, if I blow bubbles into water, the water will change from “neutral” to “acidic” because of the carbon dioxide in my breathe that dissolved into the water to make carbonic acid. The pH can be used to measure precisely how much acid or alkaline material is dissolved in the water blend, which is why pH is an important measure of quality for lotions, creams and other “water containing” cosmetics. If these products are made properly, that can often be seen by changes in pH of the products. Most manufacturers will specify the allowable pH range of their products and may reject a batch, just because of the pH.”

Note that if the product does not contain water, it can NOT have a pH. Interestingly, some make claims about the pH of their UV gel. However, these products contain no water, so they can NOT have a pH. If I mixed a UV gel with water, these would separate into two layers upon sitting. I could measure the pH of water to see if it changed. If the pH of the water changes, this is because something in the gel was water soluble and when it dissolved in the water, that substance changed the pH of the water. That is NOT the pH of the UV gel. UV gels cannot have a pH. It is not proper to use litmus paper to test UV gels. Litmus paper is designed for use with water-based materials and will not provide correct readings when used with UV gels.

For more useful information about nails and nail products read Face to Face with Doug Schoon, available on Amazon, iTunes, Kobo and Nook in printed or e-book formats.
