Our All New Clarifying Scrub features skin loving ingredients like Ginger and licorice root powder to give your skin an even and clear appearance.
Ginger is a super skin-loving ingredient.
IMPROVES SKIN TONE
One of the benefits of ginger is it’s ability to improve skin tone due to its antioxidant, gingerol. It not only fights skin-damaging free radicals, but also promotes smoothness and evenness in skin tone. Which is definitely something I’m sure we are alllll trying to achieve!
LIGHTEN AGE SPOTS
Ginger also has the ability to lighten age spots while acting as an energy-booster in aromatherapy spa treatments. Because it's energizing and is believed to improve circulation, it is often used in cellulite-reducing treatments as well.
Ginger is an anti-inflammatory, which makes it a natural acne fighting ingredient. Ginger is also an antiseptic, which means it is effective in killing the bacteria that causes acne.
Licorice Root also has amazing skin benefits! Check them out below!
SOOTHE AND HYDRATE SKIN
Consistent use of our even & clear scrub will keep your skin super moisturized. Licorice root contains powerful antioxidants that can neutralize free radicals from external environmental (sun, pollution) and internal (e.g., energy production) stressors. Also, the presence of “licochalcone” is ideal for individuals with oily skin because licochalcone has shown to control oil content on the skin.
NATURAL REMEDIES FOR SKIN DISORDERS
Glycyrrhizin, an active in the licorice root, has a strong anti-inflammatory activity that is similar to cortisol and steroids. Steroids are commonly used drugs in treating inflammatory dermatologic conditions, such as eczema and psoriasis.
For centuries, Licorice root has been used to treat a wide variety of inflammatory skin conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis, contact dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis and other conditions characterized by inflammation and itch.
FADE DARK SPOTS
Hyperpigmentation or dark spots can be common after an acne breakout, an eczema flare or a sunburn. Licorice root extract is a common ingredient used in many skincare products to lighten the discoloration or pigmentation. Glabridin, an active ingredient in Licorice root, has shown to possesses anti-inflammatory effects and inhibits tyrosinase, a key enzyme that is responsible for making the pigmentation. Liquiritin is another active ingredient, which does not inhibit tyrosinase but it helps to disperse and remove melanin and pigments in the skin. In one clinical study conducted in 20 Egyptian women, the investigators showed that use of skincare cream containing liquiritin was both safe and effective in the treatment of melasma.
NATURAL SUN PROTECTION
Skin-care products that contain the licorice extract have the potential to alleviate the discomfort and inflammation associated with sunburn. New basic research shows that licochalcone A, molecule present in licorice root, can suppress cyclooxygenase (COX)-2 and prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) expression after intense sun exposure. Both COX2 and PGE2 are inflammatory enzymes that play a role in triggering an inflammatory reaction and responsible for the painful sensation associated with sunburn. Hence, when mixed with other natural anti-inflammatory plants and herbs, such as aloe vera and crushed cucumbers, these mixtures from licorice root can provide significant comfort relief for a bad sunburn and help to maintain both moisturization content of skin.
