Sens-i-Lavi shampoos have a pH value of 7.2, which is appropriate for healthy dog skin. The physiological, i.e. natural pH of your pet skin reaches values in the range of 6.9 – 7.51. Thus, the pH value characteristic of a dog is significantly higher than that of a man whose average skin pH value is 5.5. By using shampoos with a pH value as close as possible to that of a healthy pet, you will ensure the right balance – after washing, the skin barrier will regenerate faster and return to its natural balance.
Why quick regeneration of the skin barrier after bathing is important?
- so that the skin can be elastic and, thanks to a tight barrier, resistant to drying out and to the penetration of pathogens and pollutants into the body
- so that the coat, which is a product of the skin, can be beautiful and shiny

Good to know:
The pH value allows us to determine whether the substance has acidic or alkaline properties. The pH scale is between 0 and 14.
Exemplary pH values:
- orange juice: pH 4
- clean water: pH 7
- soap: pH 10
