Hi, I’m Dr. Nina Yoshpe, co-founder of YW Doctors Laboratories and co-developer of Comfort Ear™ Natural Moisturizer. Many patients ask why a pH balanced formula is so important for the external ear canal skin. The pH is key to external ear skin care. Maintaining a normal pH of the external ear canal allows it to be bacteria-resistant and may prevent external ear canal infections. Comfort Ear™ Natural Moisturizer helps maintain the natural pH of the ear canal, may help to prevent irritation of the canal, and is protective in people who participate in water sports like water skiing, surfing, diving, and swimming.
