Gluconolactone is a type of Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA). It is an exfoliant. It gives similar results to Glycolic Acid, but without the irritation for people with more sensitive skin. In addition, because it is composed of several water-attracting hydroxyl groups, it is also able to hydrate skin. A study has also found Gluconolactone to be as effective as Benzoyl Peroxide (but less irritating) at treating acne lesions.
