Product Description

Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate (DPG for short) is an active ingredient extracted from the root of the legume licorice (Glycyrrhizauralensis Fisch.). In general, licorice is mainly divided into three categories: licorice, licorice, and licorice (also known as licorice).

Dipotassium glycyrrhizate exists in these three kinds of licorice, and another common licorice extract, licorice, only exists in licorice. Therefore, Suzhou Greenway first extracts dipotassium glycyrrhizate from Glycyrrhiza glabra, and then extracts Glycyrrhiza glabrata, which has a cost advantage.

Product Function


Dipotassium glycyrrhizate can inhibit the production of melanin. In the experimental study, the back skin of guinea pigs. Under UVB irradiation, the skin pretreated with 0.5% dipotassium glycyrrhizinate had a higher whiteness coefficient (L value) than the skin of the control group. Significantly, the experimental results show that dipotassium glycyrrhizate has a significant inhibitory effect on melanin production, which can be used to prevent skin pigmentation and melanin production after sun exposure, and is a potential skin whitening agent.

Anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic

Dipotassium glycyrrhizate acts on hormone receptors on cell membranes, affects ion channels, activates or inhibits enzyme activity, regulates substance metabolism and cholinergic nerve excitability, thereby reducing the permeability of capillary walls and cell membranes , achieve the purpose of reducing inflammatory exudation, and inhibit the formation and release of histamine and other toxic substances, so as to play a good anti-inflammatory effect.

When dipotassium glycyrrhizate acts on LPS-stimulated RAW264.7 cells, it can inhibit the secretion of inflammatory mediator NO and inflammatory cytokine IL-6 to varying degrees.

Therefore, dipotassium glycyrrhizate in cosmetics can help reduce skin redness and irritation that are common in various diseases such as rosacea and psoriasis. Another clinical trial has shown that dipotassium glycyrrhizate can effectively treat atopic dermatitis.


The U.S. Food and Drug Administration lists dipotassium glycyrrhizate on its Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS).

Clinical trials have shown that dipotassium glycyrrhizinate does not penetrate or irritate the skin and has no side effects.

Both the EU Cosmetics Directive and the Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR) panel have determined that dipotassium glycyrrhizinate is safe and non-toxic as an OTC personal care product additive.

EWG's Skin Deep Cosmetic Database (Environmental Working Group - US Environmental Working Group Cosmetic Database) rates dipotassium glycyrrhizinate on a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is the lowest risk to skin health and 10 is the highest risk.
