The Super Powers of Licorice

[social_share/]

There are few foods as polarizing as licorice. I fall into the “no, thank you” camp while others happily consume it on a regular basis. The beautiful thing about licorice, besides providing the world an illustration of living peacefully amongst differing opinions, is that it comes from a plant (with the hardcore title of Glycyrrhiza glabra, but I’ll just call it ‘licorice’) with impressive super powers for your skin. Let’s review some of those here:

1. Are dark spots from acne, eczema, aging and scars bothering you? Studies show that licorice can naturally lighten pigmented skin to give it a more balanced, even look.

2. Suffer from psoriasis? Have no fear! Licorice Root Extract is here! Slather the Vitamin C Infused Hand Cream over your psoriasis-addled skin and watch it get better in no time.

3. Are you battling itchy dermatitis? In a study by the Department of Pharmaceutics, “Two percent licorice topical gel was more effective than 1% in reducing the scores for erythema, oedema and itching over two weeks. The results showed that licorice extract could be considered as an effective agent for treatment of atopic dermatitis.” Lucky for you OHA customers, Martha formulated the Vitamin C Infused Hand Cream with a 7.5 % concentration of licorice root extract to provide even more scientifically proven healing power.

4. Best of all, applying licorice root extract topically helps prevent skin cancer and consumes free radicals to slow down the skin’s natural aging process. The Department of Medical Elementology and Toxicology did a study whose results showed, “that glycyrrhetinic acid (a “major active component of licorice roots”), an antioxidant, is a potential chemopreventive agent that can inhibit… cutaneous oxidative stress and tumor promotion.”

 

Basically, licorice root extract is awesome. It’s a potent extract that will not only balance your skin tone and soothe what ails your skin but it also prevents future skin troubles, like skin cancer and wrinkles. Now, when you use your favorite OHA hand cream, you’ll know you’re applying the real deal.

 

 

Are Natural Ingredients Actually Effective?

According to a University of Louisville study called Innovations in natural ingredients and their use in skin care, natural ingredients are proven to be effective in topical skin care. Lucky for you, Martha has used the very best natural, organic skin care ingredients to nurture your skin’s natural healing abilities and conquer free radicals that age your skin prematurely.

“Certain ingredients, such as colloidal oatmeal and aloe vera, have been identified as beneficial in the treatment of psoriasis and atopic dermatitis, respectively, due to their anti-inflammatory properties”

Martha includes aloe vera in almost every formulation – Cleansing Milk, Hydrating Mist, Facial Sugar Scrub, Daily Moisturizer, Night Cream, Supercritical CO2 Gel Mask, Lip Line Treatment, Under Eye Therapy, Vitamin C Infused Hand Cream, and Shea Body Butter.

 

“For combating acne and rosacea, green tea, niacinamide and feverfew are considered efficacious.”

Acne and rosacea are common symptoms of internal inflammation. If these ingredients appeal to you, check out our Hydrating Mist, Daily Moisturizer, Night Cream, Lip Line Treatment, Under Eye Therapy, Supercritical CO2 Gel Mask, Shea Body Butter, and Vitamin C Infused Hand Cream

“As to hyperpigmentation and antioxidative capabilities, licorice, green tea, arbutin, soy, acai berry, turmeric and pomegranate are among those plants and compounds found to be most beneficial.”

Since this is from a scientific abstract, the writers decided to lump together two distinct ingredient actions : hyperpigmentation correctors and antioxidants. Licorice is a fantastic dark spot remover and is featured in the Vitamin C Infused Hand Cream. The rest of the ingredients listed are potent antioxidants, which you’ll find in high concentrations in the all of Martha’s formulations, but most especially in the Supercritical CO2 Gel Mask.
