Tagra Launches a Form Of Stable Licorice Extract

November 22, 2005

Tagra Biotechnologies introduces Tagranat Licorice 1, a form of stable licorice extract. The product allows formulators to benefit from the whitening activity of licorice extract without the color development disadvantage associated with “naked” licorice in formulations. Licorice extract sourced by Tagra contains a high concentration of glabridin, which provides a potent whitening action by tyrosinase-inhibition activity, according to company executives. Tagranat Licorice 1 captures licorice extract within the microcapsules polymeric wall, ensuring effective isolation and preventing it from reacting with other formulation ingredients. The controlled release mechanism ensures that 95-97% of the extract is released from the microcapsule only upon application onto the skin or scalp. Recommended applications include whitening creams, age-defying creams and moisturizing and lightening hand creams. More info: E-mail: info@tagra.com; Website: www.tagra.com.
