KetoKerri Introduces Hydroxide Alkaline Gel™
The largest organ in the body is human skin. This highly complex organ functions as both a physical and biochemical barrier protecting the body from first and foremost the loss of water and other components to the external environment. It also protects the body from the external threats present in the environment. These include but are not limited to food allergies, pathogens, chemicals, solar ultraviolet radiation, and other physical threats. Beyond this the skin also performs many life-sustaining functions including immune defense, thermoregulation, vitamin D synthesis, and sensory functions (feel/touch) among others.
When a child has a food allergy, immune activating inflammatory proteins send the body into fighting mode by producing antibodies to defend against the invader. This reaction causes allergy symptoms which typically occur within the first few hours after eating an offending food. Food allergens can cause an immediate immune reaction mediated by IgE antibodies, resulting in symptoms from rashes, hives, and severe itching (urticaria).
One of the most important functions of the skin is a detox mechanism for the body. As such, if a body is overly acidic it will necessarily use the skin as one of the means of alleviating this condition. As the acidity leaves the body through the skin it can irritate the skin causing chronic itching (urticaria). Add to this the fact that various skin infections and imbalances (boils, open sores, eczema, dermatitis etc.) can be caused by or exacerbated by excess acidity levels in skin tissue and the problem becomes more apparent. Furthermore, because acidity leads to inflammation, the presence of inflammation can be a prime indicator of excess acidity.
Fortunately, skin is one of the most readily accessible organs of the human body for topical administration. Our gel is the perfect vehicle for this administration. Whether acidity is the cause or the effect of any skin condition, our hydroxide gel will provide the body with what it needs to naturally combat the acidity. The hydroxide in our gel works in the same way as the hydroxide in our concentrate – it hunts down acidity to eliminate it. Because the result of this elimination is new water molecules, the skin is also hydrated. The elimination of acidity and the hydration of the skin further frees up oxygen that can then be used to oxygenate the skin cells. The process is simple:

KNOWN STRESSORS OF THE SKIN
1) DIETARY STRESS (All of these can stress the skin or be manifested through the skin) –
- Too much acidic or acid producing food and beverages
- Hydrogenated and processed foods that lead to GI imbalances and food allergies
either from too little intake of hydrating fluids or
from the intake of dehydrating fluids (soda, fruit juices, other sugary drinks, etc.)
2) EMOTIONAL STRESS – negative emotions and the stress of daily life can be manifested in the skin.
3) PHYSICAL STRESS – from the environment like too much sun or wind or heat or cold can stress the skin.
4) DISEASE – either diseases of the skin itself or diseases of the body generally can add stress to the skin resulting in inflammation , itching, and an emotional state of discomfort.
BENEFITS OF HYDROXIDE ALKALINE GEL™ FOR THE SKIN
DECREASED INFLAMMATION – By eliminating skin acidity with Hydroxide Alkaline Gel™, the body’s inflammation responses are quieted and normal fluid levels are restored over time to the skin.
INCREASED HYDRATION – Hydroxide Alkaline Gel™ creates new water molecules when it eliminates acidity and this hydrates the skin cells.
INCREASED SKIN DETOXIFICATION – Hydroxide Alkaline Gel™ not only hydrates the cells with the water created but it also primes the detox pathways opening up the skin pores in addition to eliminating many bacteria that remained on the skin.
INCREASED OXYGEN – Acidic load robs the body of resources that would be otherwise utilized for the transport and availability of oxygen. When the acidic load is eliminated rather than merely buffered, more resources become available for oxygen transport throughout the skin.
RESTORED HARMONY – When the excess acidic skin load is decreased by regular topical application of Hydroxide Alkaline Gel™, the skin is able to operate more efficiently in all biological processes.
HYDROXIDE ALKALINE GEL™ BASICS
WHAT IT’S MADE OF:
Hydroxide Alkaline Gel™ is 100% natural consisting of hydroxide concentrate in a xanthan gum base with the organic orange and lemon essential oils added. That is it. There is no alcohol or other preservatives. Nothing artificial is added. As noted elsewhere, our hydroxide comes from limestone making it completely natural.
HOW IT WORKS:
Hydroxide Alkaline Gel™ relies solely on hydroxide to eliminate acidity rather than merely buffer it with the introduction of alkaline minerals. Since acidity is an excess of hydrogen protons (H+), hydroxide (OH–) naturally neutralizes it through elimination and not mere buffering. The attraction between both the hydrogen proton and the hydroxide ion is strong because both ions are in reality parts of the water molecule and both seek to become whole again: OH– + H+ = H2O.
Because the result of this elimination is new water molecules, the skin is also hydrated. The elimination of acidity and the hydration of the skin further frees up oxygen that can then be used to oxygenate the skin cells. The process is simple:

NOTE: Although the skin is naturally slightly acidic as part of its defense mechanism, most skin conditions are caused by or exacerbated by excess acidity. Because hydroxide is a part of the water molecule and the body is made up primarily of water, hydroxide provides the most natural means by which the body can restore the skin’s natural pH even if that is slightly acidic. Hydroxide will not make the skin too alkaline.
Apply to affected area daily several times as needed or as directed by your health care professional.
No need to cover with gauze.
Do not have to rinse off between applications.
Can be used under diapers or underwear (will not stain).
May be left on overnight.
Avoid contact with the eyes. If contact occurs flush with water for several minutes.
