Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate


Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, also known as Licorice Root Extract, is a salt derived from licorice.Dipotassium Glycyrrhizinate is a dipotassium salt of Glycyrrhizic Acid. It can be used as a flavoring agent and a skin conditioning agent with anti-allergic and anti-inflammatory properties. It can inhibit the leuco triene and reduce histamine. It has been widely used in the dermatological medicine in topical applications. This is a non-GMO product.

Glycyrrhizic acid is also known as glycyrrhizinic acid or glycyrrhizin. It is extracted from licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra). However, due to glycyrrhizic acid being poorly soluble in water, its potassium salt is frequently utilized instead in skin care products. Dipotassium glycyrrhizinate is a substance well known to the medical community because it has been investigated as potential treatment for several disorders. For example, in Japan it is used as treatment for chronic hepatitis due to its potent antiviral effects. Its beneficial properties can also be transferred to skin care because this licorice constituent displays prominent anti-inflammatory, anti-irritant, anti-aging, anti-psoriatic, anti-allergic and immune modulatory effects.

This skin conditioning agent works to improve the appearance of dry/damaged skin by reducing flaking and restoring suppleness, and also functions as an anti-irritant with anti-inflammatory and skin soothing capabilities. In fact, clinical tests point to the ingredient as an effective treatment for atopic dermatitis.

Furthermore, studies suggest it may also inhibit the skin’s tyrosinase activity and melanin production, making it a potential lightening/brightening agent that prevents hyper-pigmentation. Further studies have shown it to help reduce the redness and irritation commonly associated with various ailments such as Rosacea, Psoriasis and acne. It can be found in personal care products such as facial moisturizer/lotion, anti-aging treatment, sunscreen, acne treatment, cleanser, foundation, skin fader/lightener, facial masque and eye cream.
