Indeed Labs unveils pH-In
Indeed Labs is offering pH-In (pronounced ‘fin’), a pH-balancing acne system that targets blemishes with three steps: a cleanser, a moisture treatment and a mask.
The company noted that pH-In combats blemishes with ingredients that balance skin, not blast it, in formulas that work smarter, not harsher.
After three years in their labs, pH-In's chemists developed a clinically-proven, dermatologist-approved, microbiome-certified, healthy way to combat blemishes—a system that gives users' skin the power to treat itself. Instead of harsh chemicals, pH-In uses gentle microbiome and pH balancing science for lasting results.
Step 1 - The cleanser deep cleans pores while protecting the skin’s microbiome diversity. Formulated with an Amino Acid Complex, it clears debris away while protecting skin microbiome diversity.
Step 2 - The moisture treatment targets and weakens acne-causing bacteria. It reduces the oil that acne bacteria feed on, weakens the bacteria’s outer shield and fights the acne bacteria inside. This targeted approach keeps good bacteria intact and protects the skin’s moisture barrier.
Step 3 - The mask provides vital calming and soothing benefits to irritated skin. Overnight, it works to reduce redness, irritation and dryness. At the same time, it controls excess oil production to reduce future breakouts.
The line's pH-balanced formula restores microbiome diversity, creating an environment unwelcoming to acne-causing bacteria. The company said a balanced skin microbiome is vital for healthy, clear skin.

The company also cited an eight-week clinical study, which found that 92% of participants saw visible improvement in the look of blemishes; 100% reported that the system did not irritate their skin; and 86% saw an improved appearance of scars and post-acne marks.
“We believe that there is no such thing as problem skin, only problem products,” said Dimitra Davidson, president and chief operating officer at pH-In. “When it comes to acne, overkill has been the name of the game for years; the harshest ingredients are used to treat the smallest pimple, resulting in a vicious cycle of skin suffering. pH-In was designed to combat blemishes while improving the overall health of your skin. With just three steps, it’s a routine that lasts, for results that last."
