A polyhydroxy acid (PHA) that helps shed dead cells from the surface of the skin revealing a smoother, more even skin. PHAs tend to be gentler on the skin compared to AHAs (for example, glycolic acid). It also has hydrating properties and helps attract water to the upper layer of the skin. It can help calm down inflammation in skin and support restoration of the barrier function. It has an anti-oxidant effect as well. It can help reduce fine line, wrinkles and improve skin elasticity

Clinical trials review

Number of participants Participants Interventions Punchline
33 Female subjects having mild to moderate periocular fine lines, periocular coarse wrinkles, and mottled hyperpigmentation on the face.Two subjects discontinued the study for reasons unrelated to test product usage. Thirty-one women (29 white, 2 Asian), 39 to 60 years of age, with Fitzpatrick skin types II and III, completed the study The participants applied a research formulation containing 8% lactobionic acid in a simple cream vehicle (pH 3.8) to the entire face twice daily and to the left or right sun-exposed outer forearm 3 times per day according to a randomization schedule. The other forearm was left untreated as a control; no products were applied to the control arm Compared with the baseline parameters, all clinically graded parameters improved significantly at both week 6 and week 12. Compared with the baseline measurements, pinch recoil measurements also improved significantly at both week 6 and week 12 with a 14.5% increase in skin firmness and elasticity at end point. Skin thickness increased significantly relative to baseline (6.9%; P,.05) and relative to the untreated control (1.9%; P,.01). The lactobionic acid 8% cream was well tolerated, and there were no significant increases in average irritation scores over the 12-week treatment period
