Description: Glabridin (Glab) is an isoflavonoid originally isolated from the roots of Glycyrrhiza glabra L. (Fabaceae). Glab is widely considered to be a phytoestrogen and has been associated with numerous biological properties ranging from antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, anti-atherogenic effects, to the regulation of energy metabolism, but also including anti-tumorigenic, anti-nephritic, antibacterial and skin-whitening activities. The term “Glabridin-40” is listed in the International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients (INCI) as Glycyrrhiza glabra (root) extract enriched in Glab. Those enriched extracts are widely used in cosmetic formulation as anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and skin whitening agents.
