Composition of acid mantle and how is it made
According to google, when sebum is mixed with sweat, it makes the acid mantle.
As i don’t trust google i want to learn the answer to these questions from you chemists.
1. What is the composition acid mantle and how is it made?
2. If it is mixture of sebum and sweat, then if we wash our skin daily or twice a day with surfactant, does it means we have no acid mantle because we remove all the sebum and sweat?
3. Even if we wash our skin with water alone that removes sweat but not sebum, does it mean we don’t have acid mantle because sebum alone doesn’t make acid mantle?
4. Those parts of our skin that doesn’t produce sebum, do they ahave acid mantle? If yes then how?
