Licorice Root Pure Powder
CAS No.
471-53-4

Produced from the hydrolysis of Glycyrrhicinate from the roots and rhizomes of the Glycyrrhiza glabra plant, Licorice Root has a long history of use as an anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory. It has been used extensively in Europe and the US as a soothing ingredient in cough suppressants and is often used in traditional Chinese medicine as an herbal healing agent.

Our Licorice Root Pure Powder is composed primarily of 18ß-Glycyrrhetinic Acid, which is a known potent anti-inflammatory and anti-redness compound. The active component 18ß-Glycyrrhetinic Acid is structurally similar to that of cortisol, and potentiates the anti-inflammatory activity of cortisol by inhibiting its intracellular inactivation. Both molecules are flat and similar at position 3 and 11 which might be the basis for licorice's anti-inflammatory action.  This powder contains little Glabridin, the component of Licorice used in cosmetic products for its skin whitening effect.  Its targeted usefulness is as an anti-irritation, anti-inflammatory agent.

I recently received my latest order from Lotioncrafter, quickly as always, even though it is a very busy time of the year. As usual, the products did not disappoint in any way. I must however comment on this Shea Nilotica I purchased. It is the most amazing shea butter I've ever used and I've tried them all. This shea butter is extremely creamy, softer than any others, with very little scent and has absolutely no graininess. It is truly amazing stuff
