The main functions are anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and skin lightening.

As a free radical scavenger and anti-oxidant, it works to inhibit lipid peroxidation in cells and is more effective than kojic acid or resveratrol in vitro tests. As an anti-inflammatory, it inhibits cytokines and COX-2 enzymes and has been demonstrated to be more effective in vitro than resveratrol. As a water-insoluble ingredient (soluble in ethanol), it’s safe and non-irritating when used topically.

It also enhances the properties produced by resveratrol.

The one you’ve been waiting for! All three of the key licorice chemicals can act against hyperpigmentation, such as age spots, acne scarring, sun damage, and melasma. Glabridin is thought to protect skin from darkening in the first place, while liquirtin can spread out the melanin in existing pigmentation and increase skin renewal. In one study on melasma, a skin condition that looks a bit like heavy freckling, liquirtin was found to work even better than hydroquinone, the gold standard treatment for hyperpigmentation. Licorice also has much fewer side effects than your typical anti-pigmentation treatments, thanks to its amazing anti-irritant abilities.
