What you need to know about baking soda experiment stories
The idea that baking soda could be used to clean up your skin is not new.
The American Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (AADV) in 2009 released a report saying that baking powder should be used as a disinfectant.
But when it came to the baking soda and baking soda gel, there was no official scientific data to support this idea.
“Baking soda is basically a chemical disinfectant,” says Dr. Michael Hausfeld, a dermatologist and author of The Essential Guide to Dermatological Care.
“There’s not any evidence that baking, baking soda, baking powder or baking soda gels are actually going to be harmful to the skin.”
Baking powder is an ingredient found in products like baking soda but is also used in baking soda water, baking powders, baking mixes and baking powdering powders.
Baking powder has no known side effects.
“It’s a very simple thing to understand,” Hausfield says.
“It doesn’t have a side effect.”
The study released in 2009 said that baking powding powders contain sodium chloride, which is used to disinfect food.
Sodium chloride can be toxic to your body if ingested and is used as an irritant in baking, cooking and baking.
Bacteria in your mouth can also build up and lead to infections.
“We think there’s no good reason for baking powder to be used for cleaning up skin,” Hussfeld says.
The American Academy’s report also stated that baking oil and baking powder are safe for your skin because they are both a “simple to use product that does not require any special cleaning.”
The report also said that there is no known relationship between baking powder and acne.
“I think people are really starting to realize that these products are just as effective as the products that have been tested,” Husfeld says, adding that people are starting to see that baking is a safe and effective way to cleanse skin.
In 2015, a study showed that baking and baking-powder products did not affect skin or reduce acne severity.
The AADV and other dermatologists have taken up the study of baking soda.
Hausfild and colleagues have published a number of studies in the medical literature that show that baking products have a wide variety of potential uses.
“We are constantly exploring these products, looking at their safety, and what the science says is that these things can be used in a lot of different situations,” Hsu says.
