4 reasons why we formulate with Liquorice Root Extract

In the search for brighter skin, we are always looking for solutions to resolve the common problematic concerns such as dark spots from sun damage, hormonal pigmentation such as melasma, hyperpigmentation from past breakouts causing discolouration's and uneven skin tone When it comes to fading spots and brightening the skin, hydroquinone is the often recommended and is a Dermatologist favourite. Hydroquinone is available on prescription but has numerous drawbacks such as mild skin irritation and sensitization, burning, stinging, dermatitis, dryness, redness, inflammatory reactions and a blueish tone to the skin, which is why more and more products now rely on the natural alternative- Liquorice Root Extract!! 


Here is 4 reasons we formulate with Liquorice Root Extract: 


  1. Skin Brightener   

Liquorice extract brightens the skin as it contains Liquiritin, an active compound that helps to disperse and remove existing melanin in the skin, resulting in a brighter complexion. 


  1. Potent Antioxidant 

Like many other plant-based extracts, liquorice contains an antioxidant-rich component that decreases reactive oxygen species, which both age and discolour the skin. 


  1. Anti Inflammatory Benefits 

Liquorice Root Extract contains, Licochalcone A, molecule present in liquorice root, which inhibits two inflammatory markers that trigger the inflammatory cascade. 


  1. Controls Oil Production 

The Licochalcone A compound may have the added benefit of regulating oil production. Its why liquorice root extract is often used as a dandruff treatment.
