As I have heard that the pH is distracting the work of the BHA/AHA from Cleansers, water etc, wouldn't it work to simply use BHA/AHA?

I'm not sure what you're asking.

 

BHA and AHA have to be at a low pH to work. This is why they are acids. 

 

As long as your BHA or AHA gel or peel or whatever is formulated at the correct pH, when you apply it to your skin, the acid will change the pH of your skin, not the other way around.

 

You can use BHA/AHA after a cleanser or not, it doesn't really matter, it will work about the same.
