Can Apple Cider Vinegar Go Bad?
Apple cider vinegar has gone viral in the health community as an end-all-be-all solution to all of your health ailments. And while no one thing can miraculously make all things better, apple cider vinegar definitely has a lot of uses and benefits associated. When integrating this natural detoxing ingredient into your routine, we must ask, can apple cider vinegar go bad?
Why Use Apple Cider Vinegar?
Apple cider vinegar also has a long history of being used cosmetically, thanks to its clarifying, balancing, antibacterial, and antiseptic properties. For your beauty routine, this means it can combat acne-causing bacteria, dandruff-causing fungi, balance pH levels, and deep clean buildup but a true detox. Apple cider vinegar can help acne-prone, oily, and itchy skin conditions like eczema or sunburn. You can see why apple cider vinegar is a must-have beyond the kitchen!
Does Apple Cider Vinegar Go Bad?
What’s unique about apple cider vinegar is that its high acid content makes it naturally self-preserving. The acetic acid (the main component in apple cider vinegar) rates between 2 and 3 on the pH scale (anything lower than 7 is considered to be acidic) prevents it from going bad. Apple cider vinegar has natural antimicrobial properties which add to its long shelf life since it can prevent the growth of dangerous illness-causing germs like e.coli, staphylococcus, and candida. This is why we are able to keep parabens out of WOW Skin Science’s hair products since Apple cider vinegar naturally preserves it. The key is to make sure your apple cider vinegar (and products with that as the main ingredient) is stored away from sunlight and in dark containers. All of the WOW Skin Science apple cider vinegar products are packed in amber packaging to preserve its purity!
