3 Facts About Apple Cider Vinegar That EVERYONE Should Know

12 Comments /

Apple cider vinegar has been taking the internet by the storm recently. With benefits like appetite control, lowering blood sugar, reducing the risk of obesity, improving heart health, etc., it can be seen that it’s a fantastic ingredient for weight management.

It would have been the most common ingredient used in households for weight loss if it didn’t make your face shrivel in disgust from its vinegar taste. 

While most people know what it is, they do not know how it is made. If you do know how it is made, give yourself a pat on the back.


For those who do not, what are we here for? Apple cider vinegar is made from apple juice and yeast. The yeast feasts (say that quickly 5 times) on the sugar in the apple juice and produces alcohol. The bacteria then turns the alcohol into acetic acid or vinegar and voila, we get our own ACV. However, the strength of the ACV is regulated by using different amounts of yeast and apple juice. Just a heads up if you’re planning on making your own ACV.

Some of the least known benefits of apple cider vinegar are related to beauty. “Why are they less known?” I hear you ask. I’d guess it has something to do with the fact that a lot more people are interested in the weight management benefits that they don’t pay attention to the other benefits of ACV. But not you because...well, you’re reading this blog.

What makes it so special for skin & hair care? That would be its acidic nature, along with the fact that human skin is slightly acidic. The skin is acidic, which equips itself to kill any harmful bacteria, and it is very easy to offset that balance when you just go about your day. That’s why at the end of the day, it’s best to use products that are acidic like Apple Cider Vinegar Foaming Face Wash to replenish the pH balance of the skin.

1. Apple Cider Vinegar is Gentle 

Apple Cider Vinegar is an almost miraculous ingredient with multiple benefits for the skin, hair & body! Its anti-inflammatory has an almost soothing effect on the skin along with the anti-bacterial properties when used topically.

Unfortunately, some of the products in the market, although cleansing, do not have a slightly acidic pH, leading to bacteria accumulation which further causes acne. “Which products in the market do that?!?!”. We’re going to avoid naming any brands *cough* we want to avoid litigation *cough*.

A properly-formulated gentle face wash like the WOW Apple Cider Vinegar Foaming Face Wash helps retain and replenish your skin’s moisture. Leaving your skin supple & radiant!

2. Removes Dandruff

For many of us, dandruff is the bane of our existence. Flaking is essentially your body’s natural inflammatory response to reactions on your scalp. Apple Cider Vinegar is nutrient-rich and also great at balancing pH levels, which is perfect for your scalp. The problem with most shampoos that promise to fix your dandruff problems is that they’re using chemicals for short term results that only hurt your scalp in the long run. 

Our WOW Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo is great at helping you remove dandruff & even helps with scalp itching. It has antibacterial & antifungal properties that soothe the scalp & keeps issues at bay. 

3. Really Good At Removing Dirt & Buildup  

Over time our hair also accumulates buildup from debris, dirt & frequent product use. We can go for days with products like dry shampoo that are causing product buildup without us realizing it. Often mistaken as dandruff, buildup is an easier issue to deal with compared to dandruff. 

The beauty community calls it a clarifying effect, which is a big part of what WOW Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo is. It helps to clarify your scalp from dirt & buildup naturally. This is especially perfect if you have been going for days on gels, mousses & sprays. Apple Cider Vinegar also stimulates the scalp to remove dead skin cells.

    I get a heavy scalp build up, I wash my hair, scrub my scalp and it’s back the next day. My hair is thick, color treated and tends to be a bit dry. Which shampoo do you recommend?
