It is known as “whitening gold”-Glabridin
The Inhibitory Effect of Glabridin from Licorice Extracts on Melanogenesis and Inflammation，
Licorice extract comes from the root of Glycyrrhiza glabra. Glabridin, a component of licorice, is a tyrosinase inhibitor that was shown to reduce UVB pigmentation and erythema in guinea pigs when applied for 3 weeks after UVB irradiation.Liquiritin, another component of licorice, also yielded a reduction in pigmentation in a double-blind, controlled, split-face study of 20 women with melasma. In the study, the patients applied a 20% liquiritin cream twice daily (1 gram/day) for 4 weeks. Sixteen of the 20 patients treated with liquiritin showed an “excellent response” compared with none in the controlled vehicle.
1. Glabridin has depigmentation and lightening properties. It inhibits the production of melanin, so it is globally popular in the top grade cosmetics for skin whitening;
2. Glabridin Powder has shown positive effects in fields like LDL(low-density-lipoprotein ) protection against oxidation;
3.Glabridin inhibits the inflammatory reaction by blocking cyclooxygenase and preventing the formation of free radicals such as superoxide anions;
4.At the same time glabridin prevents rough skin and also has anti-inflammatory,antibacterial effect.
