Glucono Delta Lactone (GdL)
CAS No. 90-80-2

Considered a next generation AHA, Glucono Delta Lactone is a Polyhydroxy acid (PHA) that can be found in its natural state (gluconic acid) in honey and royal jelly, fruit juices, wine and other fermented products.  Gluconic acid is simply a molecule of glucose in which the aldehyde function has been oxidated to an acid function.  Bees do it through enzymatic action and in fermented products like wine and kombucha, it is done by microorganisms.
 
Glucono Delta Lactone is simply the dry form of gluconic acid which is obtained by the removal of water during the crystallization process.  When it is dissolved in water, this reaction is reversed, resulting in a solution of gluconic acid.
 
Our Glucono Delta Lactone is a gluten-free fermented food starch derived from non-GMO corn via a fermentation process with non-GMO microorganisms. In the food industry, Glucono Delta Lactone is a GRAS ingredient ("Generally Regarded as Safe") used as a food additive to lower the pH of sauces and dressings without making them sour as citric acid can do.
 
Glucono Delta Lactone, often abbreviated as GdL, when added into an aqueous solution, rapidly dissolves, and slowly hydrolyzes to gluconic acid, thus producing a gentle acidification in the same way as lactic acid-producing bacteria. 
 
Glucono Delta Lactone finds use in the cosmetic industry as a moisturizer, pH adjuster, and sequestrant or chelating agent. It is generally considered suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin, and is non-irritating and antioxidant. The multiple hydroxyl groups on the GdL molecule attract water, resulting in a moisturizing effect when added to skin care formulations. Given their ability to condition and hydrate skin, GdL-containing formulations may even smooth skin texture and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
 
Glucono Delta Lactone, through its slow hydrolysis to gluconic acid, ensures a progressive and continuous decrease of pH to equilibrium.  So it is used as a slow release acidifier in formulations.
 
The multiple hydroxyl groups on the GdL molecule that attract water may also act to reduce water availability for microbial growth in cosmetic formulations.
 
Glucono Delta Lactone is often combined with Sodium Benzoate, a traditional preservative, where it can potentiate the preservative and enhance the microbial tolerance of the finished product. It can also be combined with other antimicrobial or antifungal ingredients whose activity is dependent on a low pH.
 
Glucono Delta Lactone (GdL) can be combined with Leucidal Liquid, Leucidal Liquid SF, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Optiphen, Optiphen Plus, and Optiphen ND.

It is with great sadness we have discontinued shipping to Australia due to the Australian government shifting their burden of tax collection and remission to foreign sellers. Given there is no reciprocal agreement between the USA and Australia for excise tax collection, we are declining to register with Australia and start burdensome international tax collection on their behalf. Please note, this also includes the use of package forwarders as the tax collection burden is still the seller's responsibility. We're unhappy, you're unhappy, but unless the situation changes, this is where we are. Jenny

This company is a breath of fresh air! The product quality is excellent, and the customer service is even better.

I've used Lotioncrafter on a number of occasions, and always found the products to be top quality and good value for money. Jen has always provided great support and helped me to straighten out problems with credit cards and delivery (I live outside the USA). I would recommend Lotioncrafter wholeheartedly to anyone seeking top quality cosmetic ingredients at affordable (and very competitive) prices. Thanks again Jen!
