Sensitive skin havers looking for an exfoliating acid can now rejoice! Gluconolactone is a gentle exfoliant that exists under the poly-hydroxy acid umbrella. What separates it from more well known dead cell scrubbing acids like AHAs and BHAs is that it is also a humectant.
Benefits: It washes away dead skin cells, so it smoothes skin texture through exfoliation. The hydroxyl groups in this PHA deliver hydration and moisture to the skin.
Skin Types: Sensitive and dry skin can use gluconolactone as a gentle exfoliant!
