    Shawn,the reason you don't want the skin more acidic then the tan is because you would end up with surface tanning-not much penetration of the tan.When I neutralize my skins the ph is around 5.5 to 6.Most tans tan in a range of 4.5 to 5.That ph reading from my neutralizing is actually on the skins,not my neutralizing solution,the solution usually reads 7 to 8. ;D
