Knee wound. Laceration with 5cm diameter, a bit deep. Disinfected it with betadine,  water/soap. It formed a green layer, that came of. How to treat?

Lacerations: Ideally lacerations to the body should be closed within 12 hours but there are exceptions. It sounds as if you're far out of this window. You should monitor for signs of fever, redness, discharge, or severe pain. I would still recommend seeing a medical provider to evaluate your wound and make sure your tetanus status is up to date.

Best antiacne soap in market?

Best antiacne soap in market?

Soap not the answer: Acne is a major chronic disease that in spite of what anybody may have told you is not the result of your diet or your poor hygiene. Topical benzoyl peroxide is the only thing you can buy yourself that can do much. Failing this, get with your physician. The oral contraceptive pill, a topical agent like clindamycin, or something stronger will be able to clear you -- depends on what's right for you.

Does diluting castile soap change the ph?

No.: pH will remain the same. Most of these soaps are designed to be pretty neutral with an excess of oil to lye ratio in the production. Castille soap has to sit for a long time to cure so there is very little unreacted lye. However lye is very basic and leaves the soap with a pH about 8. That's pretty normal for soaps.
