TMAU and acidic ph washes : are feminine washes an option ?

The general advice for TMAU is for sufferers, men and women, to use a wash/gel with an acidic ph, around 5.5, in the hope it will make the tma on the skin less volatile. Most ordinary soaps are probably slightly alkaline.

Quote from this source : http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/bookshelf/br.fcgi?book=gene&part=trimethylaminuria#trimethylaminuria.Management

"Use of acid soaps and body lotions. Trimethylamine is a strong base (pKa 9.8). Thus, at pH 6.0, less than 0.02% of trimethylamine exists as the volatile free base. The use of soaps and body lotions with a pH close to that of normal skin (pH 5.5-6.5) helps retain secretedtrimethylamine in a less volatile salt form that can be removed by washing. "
The most likeliest range of acidic ph washes is probably the 'feminine washes' that have come to the market, many of which contain lactic acid or another gentle acid. Perhaps these can be used for all-over washing too. It might be worth checking your local supermarket, since they are probably a growing market.

This post is intended to promote discussion on the subject of 'acidic washes', rather than posted as fact. The aim being to find out what washes/soaps/gels on the market are 'acidic'.
