  • Patent number: 10532024
    Abstract: Compositions for suppressing sebum production in skin (e.g., seborrheic skin), and minimizing glycation in skin (e.g., mature skin) with enhanced UV absorptive properties are described. In particular, the present invention relates to a composition containing a skin benefit agent that includes Lithospermum erythrorhizon. Also, methods of suppressing sebum production in skin (e.g., seborrheic skin) and minimizing glycation in skin (e.g., mature skin) by applying a composition to the skin, wherein the composition comprises an effective amount of a derivative of Lithospermum erythrorhizon are also described.

  • Publication number: 20170281703
    Abstract: A nutritional supplement comprises components (A), (B) and (C), and optionally, additional component(s) (D). The nutritional supplement can activate a subject's antioxidant system, more specifically the subject's antioxidant response element (ARE). In one embodiment, the nutritional supplement comprises: (A) glabridin; (B) licochalcone A; and (C) licorice root flavonoids. In another, the nutritional supplement comprises: (A) a first licorice root extract comprising glabridin; (B) a second licorice root extract comprising licochalcone A; and (C) a third licorice root extract comprising flavonoids. Components (A), (B) and (C) are in a combined amount sufficient to activate the subject's antioxidant system after ingestion. In addition, components (A), (B) and (C) are present in a weight ratio (A:B:C) such that their combined effect is greater than the sum of their separate effects regarding activation of the subject's antioxidant system after ingestion of the nutritional supplement.
