Look for licorice root extract in your skincare products for firm skin and reduced appearance of wrinkles

Have you ever wondered what goes into your skincare products to make them nourishing, soothing and firming on your skin?

At botanicES, it’s the combination of our natural ingredients, each selected for their healing benefits, that makes us the number one choice in skincare for so many Australians women (and some men!).

One of our hero ingredients is the certified organic licorice root extract, which has been used for centuries for medicinal and healing purposes. The root is boiled and the water evaporated to create the powerful extract. Here’s what we love about licorice root extract in skincare!

Slows the signs of premature ageing

It’s natural for the skin to lose elasticity as we age, but some natural ingredients work wonders for improving the visibility of lines and wrinkles that start to form, particularly prominent around the eye and mouth areas.

Licorice root, when split open, contains a liquid that renowned for its   plant sterols, which promote skin elasticity and fight inflammation and the appearance of wrinkles.

Calms dry skin irritation and heals troubled skin

As a natural anti-inflammatory, licorice root extract acts as cortisol in the body and can help soothe irritation and inflammation. It has been instrumental in helping some people treat a range of skin disorders such dermatitis, eczema, rosacea and psoriasis. Because it contains an acid called glycyrrhizin, which helps to increase naturally occurring steroid hormones in skin, licorice root extract has long been used to minimise the effects of skin disorders such as redness, flakiness, itchiness and puffiness.

Skin lightener

When it comes to dark circles under eyes, hyper pigmentation and blemishes, licorice root extract really comes into its own. This is because it contains Glabridin, an active ingredient that depigments skin. This is particularly great for anti-ageing properties and useful for scars that have darkened over time, dark eyes caused by dehydration or fatigue and over exposed areas to the sun.
