1.What is Dipotassium Glycyrrhizinate
Dipotassium Glycyrrhizinate (DPG) is an active ingredient extracted from liquorice root. Dipotassium glycyrrhizinate has various skin benefits. It is a skin conditioning agent that reduces peeling, restores skin flexibility, and improves dry and damaged skin. Anti-allergic, anti-inflammatory and soothing skin functions. Another clinical trial showed that dipotassium glycyrrhizinate can effectively treat atopic dermatitis.
2.Dipotassium Glycyrrhizinate Source
Dipotassium glycyrrhizinate is derived from the rhizome of leguminous licorice, and when it comes to licorice, there are three categories: Glycyrrhiza uralensis Fisch., Glycyrrhiza inflata Bat., and Glycyrrhiza glabra L. Dipotassium glycyrrhizinate is present in all of three licorices. Another common licorice extract—glabridin is only found in Glycyrrhiza glabra L. Therefore, Plamed first extracts dipotassium glycyrrhizinate from Glycyrrhiza glabra L., and then extracts glabridin.
Skin Types: Everyone can use licorice root extract. It’s greatly beneficial at reducing the look of hyperpigmentation and acne scars.
3.Why Is Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate Used?
In cosmetics and skincare products, dipotassium glycyrrhizate functions as a skin-conditioning ingredient with skin soothing properties. It is also used as an emulsifier and gel-forming agent to improve the texture and feel.
Dipotassium glycyrrhizate is a skin-conditioning ingredient that can improve the appearance of dry or damaged skin by reducing flaking and restoring suppleness.
Dipotassium glycyrrhizate has a soothing effect on the skin and is thought to help support the calming of inflammation in the skin. Clinical studies have determined that dipotassium glycyrrhizate is an effective treatment for atopic dermatitis or eczema because of its ability to reduce redness and irritation.
Dipotassium glycyrrhizate has also been linked with the preservation of hyaluronic acid content in the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a key molecule involved in maintaining skin hydration with the ability to hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. By preserving hyaluronic acid content in the skin, dipotassium glycyrrhizate helps to maintain hydrated, youthful skin. While this potential benefit of dipotassium glycyrrhizate is not well explored, some research suggests this may be an added benefit.
Lastly, dipotassium glycyrrhizate functions as an emulsifier and gel-forming ingredient in cosmetics and skincare products. Emulsifiers are necessary for products that contain both water and oil-based ingredients. Mixing water and oil can be difficult as they tend to separate and settle. An emulsifier can be added to the formulation to help the two types of ingredients remain mixed. Emulsifiers improve the consistency of a product, which enables an even distribution of skincare benefits.
