Polyhydroxy Acids Moisturisers
Polyhydroxy acids (PHAs), such as gluconolactone and lactobionic acid, are among the newest alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) to hit the skincare market. Made up of larger molecules than traditional AHAs, PHAs are typically gentler on the skin, causing less peeling, flaking and dryness. PHAs provide additional humectant and moisturization properties compared with AHAs and can enhance skin barrier function, so ideal for sensitive or dry skin types.
