Benefits of Organic Licorice Extract

Studies have shown that licorice can inhibit monoamine oxidase, inhibit aldose reductase that causes diabetes, relieve spasm and pain, prevent and treat viral hepatitis, treat senile osteoporosis, anti-leishmania, anti-cancer, and anti-AIDS (AIDS) virus. and so on.

Licorice extract can also be used for whitening and sun protection. The whitening effect of licorice extract is mainly by inhibiting the activity of tyrosinase and dopachrome interconvertase (TRP-2) and hindering the polymerization of 5,6-dihydroxyindole (DHl), thereby preventing the formation of melanin. form, so as to achieve the effect of whitening the skin.

In the licorice extract, the ingredients with sunscreen efficacy are generally flavonoids. Due to the conjugation of the molecular structure of licorice flavonoids, it shows strong absorption for both ultraviolet and visible light. Molecules that absorb high-energy ultraviolet rays transition from the ground state to the activated state, and then from the activated state back to the ground state, releasing harmless low-energy rays. Compared with synthetic sunscreens, licorice extract does not need to add antioxidants in the formula when used as sunscreens, does not irritate the skin, and has strong stable absorption capacity.
