Gluconolactone is a preservative, but it is also a humectant and a solvent. It is a free-radical scavenger, which makes it helpful for protecting skin from some of the effects of UV radiation and for exfoliation. In food, gluconolactone is a curing and pickling agent, a leavening agent, and a pH control agent. Gluconolactone is also present in dozens of personal care products, including moisturizer, facial cleansers, sunscreen, conditioner, and other items. Learn more about Gluconolactone.
