Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract

Home / Ingredient Glossary / Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract

Licorice root is great for sensitive skin and boasts anti-inflammatory, moisturizing, antioxidant and skin repairing properties. It can diminish the appearance of scars and dark spots, balance oil production, and boost collagen production for smooth, vibrant skin. In our formulas, we utilize a concentrated powder extract for maximum potency.

What’s in licorice root that makes it so special?

  • Glycyrrhizin: applied topically, it has a soothing effect on acne-prone skin, helps control oil production, and has a redness-reducing effect on sensitive skin.
  • Licochalcone: a potent natural anti-inflammatory agent that can benefit those who struggle with psoriasis, rosacea and dermatitis.
  • Glabridin: an excellent natural skin brightener. Being a phytoestrogen, glabridin serves to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and dark spots caused by UV damage by inhibiting melanin production.
