Licorice Root Pure Powder
CAS No.
471-53-4

Produced from the hydrolysis of Glycyrrhicinate from the roots and rhizomes of the Glycyrrhiza glabra plant, Licorice Root has a long history of use as an anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory. It has been used extensively in Europe and the US as a soothing ingredient in cough suppressants and is often used in traditional Chinese medicine as an herbal healing agent.

Our Licorice Root Pure Powder is composed primarily of 18ß-Glycyrrhetinic Acid, which is a known potent anti-inflammatory and anti-redness compound. The active component 18ß-Glycyrrhetinic Acid is structurally similar to that of cortisol, and potentiates the anti-inflammatory activity of cortisol by inhibiting its intracellular inactivation. Both molecules are flat and similar at position 3 and 11 which might be the basis for licorice's anti-inflammatory action.  This powder contains little Glabridin, the component of Licorice used in cosmetic products for its skin whitening effect.  Its targeted usefulness is as an anti-irritation, anti-inflammatory agent.

A car drove off the Anacortes Ferry Dock about 9:45AM this morning and emergency crews are there in a search and recovery effort. Service to and from Orcas Island is expected to be suspended for many more hours. This will delay UPS and Mail shipments by a day as these services will miss connections on the mainland. We appreciate your understanding of this situation beyond our control. Please keep the occupants of the vehicle in your thoughts and prayers.

Our Customers Say...
I just started buying from LotionCrafter's, I am so elated that I found them. They have excellent quality products at very reasonable costs and able to buy in small quantities if needed without a minimum. Most of all is the wealth of information that they have with each product. I have been looking for a supplier like this for years. Glad to have found you.
