Sooner or later almost every person develops skin issues that lead back to acidification. Responsible
for this is not only nutrition, but also body care products and cosmetics. Skin often demonstrates what the acid-base status is doing.
Michael Droste-Laux, the renowned health expert in this field, subjects the persistently defended belief in the protective acid mantle to a strict scrutiny. He demonstrates that conventional cosmetics, in combination with highly questionable ingredients, cause an acidification of the intercellular space and the connective tissue and thereby encourage civilisation diseases.
