Skin Actives sells a extract that contains all the valuable chemicals present in licorice root, released by fermentation, resulting in a powder that is powerful but also pleasant, white, and easy to use. A great active, use for atopic dermatitis and skin lightening.

Licorice root has been used in Europe since prehistoric times, documented since the ancient Greeks, for its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial activity. Phytochemists and biochemists have been working for decades to clarify the structure of the chemicals involved and mechanisms of action. In the case of the root of Glycyrrhiza glabra there is not a single chemical that benefits the skin, but rather a combination of many chemicals. Glyzyrhizinic acid, a chemical found in licorice root, has been shown to have pro-interferon and antiviral activity, including activity against the herpes virus.

Each tube is enough for 8 fl oz of cream or lotion at approximately 2% concentration (5 g in 240 mL cream). Use in your favorite cream or add to our Canvas Base Cream or a Sea Kelp Coral base.

The fine white powder will not dissolve completely but will release components slowly into the cream or lotion. This special licorice extract is a white powder and will not change the color of the cream.

    This does NOT dissolve in any cream. Even after weeks it is like rubbing sand on your face. I was given a refund/credit for it. Thank you SA
