NO! Hearkening back to high school chemistry that none of us listened to, you might recall the pH scale –  one end of the scale is acid 0 and on the other end of the scale is alkali 14. Distilled water in the middle is a comfy 7.

The aquamation process is actually the opposite of an acid bath. As the name implies, the solution that the body goes into in the alkaline hydrolysis process, is a base solution – alkali. This pH is because the substance used is sodium hydroxide is a strong alkali substance. It is actually found in many cosmetic products and cleaners because it is the chemical that actually allows soap to lift the dirt and get things clean.
