What is Licorice?
This time, we're not talking about the candy. Licorice root is widely used in Ayurveda to relieve inflammations, eye diseases, throat infections, peptic ulcers, arthritic conditions, and liver diseases. Its effectiveness in treating these conditions is attributed to the emollient, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties of its potent constituents.
Licorice extract is a perennial herb native to southern Europe, Asia, and the Mediterranean, and is cultivated extensively in Russia, Spain, Iran, and India. Licorice is commonly used as a sweetner, but also used in cosmetic applications due to its skin whitening and antimicrobial properties. We leverage licorice for these properties in our product, Skin Serum - Turmeric as an antioxidant!
