Gluconolactone

One of the most popular PHAs (poly-hydroxy acids) available in cosmeceutical skin care, Gluconolactone works in a similar way to AHAs but without the irritation. It encourages cell turnover in order to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, old blemish marks and uneven pigmentation.

It has a large molecular structure so it can hold onto vast amounts of moisture, making it a great ingredient for dry and sensitive skin types. Gluconolactone also has antioxidant properties and anti-inflammatory benefits, helping to protect the skin against external damage and strengthening the skin barrier.
