This antioxidant acts as a gentle replacement to alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs). Its mild exfoliating properties help to reduce surface build-up and the incidence of blocked pores. It also has a strong calming effect and has been proven to significantly reduce the number of both inflamed and non-inflamed breakouts. Gluconolactone may also function by scavenging free radicals, thereby protecting the skin from the damaging effects of UV radiation. While many ingredients designed to help clear problem skin can be drying or irritating, gluconolactone also provides moisturizing and barrier strengthening properties.
