DESCRIPTION: LICO-A (High content of Licochalcone A): This is a major phenolic compound of the licorice species (Glycyrrhiza Inflata) with strong anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial activity. It is a highly beneficial agent that can be added to acne treatments. It reduces the production of oil – which is a major contributor to acne and treats inflammation – reducing the intensity and severity of skin darkening.

Licochalcone A is also beneficial in depigmenting (skin lightening) formulations by dousing catalytic darkening caused by inflammation such as Sun and acne. Lico-A is a very special and gentle ingredient for any irritated and stressed skin (such as eczema, rosacea, and atopic dermatitis).
