Glycyrrhizic to fight dry and chapped skin

Dermatological Cream Gel (18-ß-Glycyrrh.Acid)

In the winter, the skin is exposed to two risks: One is the strain caused by the cold outside and the other the strain caused by the dry air in heated rooms. Dry and chapped skin is inevitable under these conditions, just like skin irritations such as itches, redness and inflammations.  Glycyrrhizic acid can help here and make a substantial contribution to even and sustainable hydration of the skin in skin care products such as moisturising creams. Irritation can be reduced in the long term.   


Natural glycyrrhizic acid with high efficiency

Whether its stearyl, potassium or 18-ß-glycyrrhetinic acid – glycyrrhizic acid reliably nourishes the skin and contributes to its regeneration. The root of the Glycyrrhiza glabra plant, better known as liquorice, is the basis of natural, highly effective glycyrrhizic acid which can also be found as an extract in many pharmaceutical and cosmetic products.  At GfN, we obtain 18-ß-glycyrrhetinic acid through hydrolysis, which in turn is the root extract from the Glycyrrhiza glabra plant. The structure of the acid is similar to that of cortisol and exhibits a similarly strong effect against inflammation and irritation (e.g. itch).


Dermatological cream gel – the strong formulation for sustainable skin care

To ensure that 18-ß-glycyrrhetinic acid has an optimum effect, we have formulated a new dermatological cream gel which is excellent for dry skin, supports the repair of the skin barrier, is moisturising and nourishing with a lasting effect. It goes without saying that the gel wouldn’t be complete with konjac mannan, our moisture professional. You can find the full INCI information in the detailed formulation which we make available to you below. Let yourself be surprised by this unique, innovative texture and convince yourself of the deep-action, rich care product which gives even sensitive skin a fresh glow in these days.
