Gluconolactone is a Poly Hydroxy Acid (PHA) found naturally in the skin and it has both anti-ageing and hydrating benefits. It contains water-attracting hydroxyl groups to condition and hydrate the skin.
It provides full strength anti-ageing benefits without irritation so it can be used by those with sensitive or rosacea-prone skin or post-rejuvenation skin as it builds and strengthens the skin barrier, reducing sensitivity to irritants and skin redness over time. If used together with glycolic acid in a formulation then those with more sensitive skins should be cautious.
It helps to preserve healthy tissue and maintain the skin’s youthful elasticity which gives the skin a smoother texture and helps to reduce fine lines.
