I’ve first heard of the brand Godiva Natural Skin Care when I was a freshman in college. It was my roommate who introduced me to it and I clearly remember her bragging about this amazing lip balm in a small little container which I eventually bought for myself. But after a year, I noticed that Watsons didn’t carry as much Godiva Natural Skin Care products as they did before.. this continued until almost nothing was left. I though the brand was gone for good but lo and behold, it’s here to make a comeback! And like all popular comebacks, Godiva Natural Skin Care now has a new and improved line called LicoWhite Whitening.
Read on to know more about the new range.
WHAT IS THE UNIQUE INGREDIENT USED IN GODIVA NATURAL SKIN CARE PRODUCTS?
Godiva Natural Skincare products use an extraordinary active ingredient derived from nature — Licorice.
Licorice or Glycyrrhiza glabra is a plant widely used commercially as a sweetening agent. However, its root has been used for many years from as far back as 3000 B.C. in Ancient China and Egypt as an herb with many medicinal properties. Today, licorice root extract and its active ingredient called glabridin, is widely recognized all over the world as the most potent, naturally-derived whitening ingredient.
HOW DOES LICORICE & ITS ACTIVE GLABRIDIN WORK?
Glabridin inhibits the production of melanin and the same time nourishes and protects the skin due to its antioxidant and antimicrobial properties.
IF LICORICE IS ONE OF THE MOST EFFECTIVE SKIN WHITENERS, WHY IS IT NOT WIDELY USED COMPARED TO OTHER NATURAL INGREDIENTS LIKE PAPAYA?
Licorice is not widely used in most whitening products because of its high premium price. Licorice (plant) is not endemic to the Philippines and glabridin as a raw material component to Godiva Natural Skincare products are imported by Godiva, Inc. from sustainable sources abroad.
The licorice extract used in Godiva Natural Skincare has passed various clinical trials and is guaranteed safe and effective for use in skin whitening, anti-blemish and skin lightening even for long periods of time.
