I went to a store to see about getting my soap in and the lady asks if my soap was ph balanced. She then proceeds to give me this lesson on why soaps need to be ph balanced. I had not even thought about making sure my soap was ph balanced. Did any of you? Anyway, just wondered if anyone has continued to ph test their soap and what is the best way. Also, is this something that is worth my while to do, or not? I also read that homemade lye soaps tend to have a ph of 9 mostly, is this really true?
