What is the sunscreen mechanism of glabridin?
The ingredients of licorice extract are sunflower flavones. Due to the conjugation of molecular structure of Glycyrrhiza flavonoids, strong absorption of UV and visible light is observed. The molecules that absorb high energy ultraviolet rays are transferred from the ground state to the activated state, and then return to the ground state from the activated state, releasing harmless low energy rays.
What is the sunscreen advantage of glabridin?
