What it does
Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate is a skin conditioning agent that restores suppleness and reduces flaking, thus helping to improve the appearance of dry and damaged skin.
In addition, this extract has soothing and anti-irritant properties. Because of this, it can help reduce the redness associated with acne, psoriasis and rosacea. It can also help treat atopic dermatitis.
It can also inhibit melanin production, meaning it could be a potentially effective treatment for hyperpigmentation.

Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate is generally considered to be safe.
