What is Licorice Root?
Licorice Root comes from the Glycyrrhiza glabra plant, a legume native to parts of Asia and Southern Europe. Possessing powerful anti-inflammatory benefits, Licorice Root effectively sooths skin-redness and irritation. It’s also a natural alternative to chemical skin-lightening ingredients like hydroquinone – used to treat hyperpigmentation and melasma. Licorice Root is also an effective treatment for eczema and even rosacea. An added benefit: Licorice Root contains potent antioxidants to guard against free-radical damage.
