All substances have different pH levels. The pH level is just a measure of the acidity of a substance. A pH level of 7 would indicate that the substance in question is neither acidic or basic, water is commonly given as having a pH level of 7, (though tap water is often slightly lower due to the chlorine content). The scientific answer to your question would be that the pH level would be different due to the variance in the number of free hydrogen atoms or protons, in the different cosmetics.
