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:
