What is Zinc Gluconate?

Zinc gluconate is a very popular ingredient that is often used in formulas, particularly those used for fighting acne. With a number of studies and research has proven it to be a potent ingredient when combating all aspects of blemishes, breakouts and frequent acne. With its antibacterial abilities and sebum-regulating benefits the skin is protected from the spot-causing bacteria P. acnes this not only reduces how often you suffer from spots, but also speeds up any surface wounds from inflammations and soothes the overall health and appearance of the complexion. The way zinc gluconate differs from zinc, is the gluconate part itself plays an important part in the cellular regeneration of the skin resulting in it looking younger and healthier, but also gives it a better absorption ability making any other skincare products penetrate further down into the lower layers of the skin.

Side effects of Zinc Gluconate

No known side effects, as always if you have a super-sensitive skin type its best to consult with a doctor to avoid any skin irritation.
