Licorice gives your skin some serious love, especially when it comes to protecting and brightening.
Here are just a few of the reasons why licorice root benefits your skin:
The anti-inflammatory properties of licorice extract make this one of the best natural ingredients to treat dark spots and hyperpigmentation.
- Helps fades dark spots and hyperpigmentation
Licorice root combats dark spots and hyperpigmentation by hindering melanin and free radical production. That’s part of why gentle, effective dark spot removers and skin brighteners contain licorice root extract to help even out skin spots.
- Carries glycyrrhizin, a powerful antioxidant
The official name for the licorice plant is Glycyrrhiza glabra root, which is what you’ll find as the key ingredient in our Neutriherbs Vitamin C Serum as an antioxidant, it protects our skin against free radicals and sun damage
- Contains glabridin, a UV-fighting super ingredient
Glabridin (glab-rye-din) is one of the most active ingredients in licorice root extract. This substance helps diminish any dark spots you have from scarring or sun burn. It also prevents pigmentation from UVB rays by inhibiting tyrosinase, an enzyme that causes dark pigments after sun exposure.
Those are just a few reasons why we use Licorice Root in our Neutriherbs Vitamin C Serum and Neutriherbs Vitamin C Brightening & Glow Face Cream
