I’ve heard of Godiva Natural Skin Care before. I’ve seen it on shelves, but I honestly never gave much attention to it. I thought it’s practically the same as other whitening products in the market. Recently, I was introduced to the brand and I was pretty much sold from what I learned! How? Why? Read on…


I won’t waste your time. I’ll go straight to the point and answer the common questions of everyone.

What makes Godiva Natural Skin Care unique from other whitening products?

It has licorice root extract and its active ingredient called glabridin, which is widely recognized all over the world as the most potent, naturally-derived whitening ingredient.

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.

How does licorice and 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 this unique ingredient actually works, why is it uncommon among other whitening products?

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.

Since licorice is expensive, are the Godiva Natural Skin Care products priced higher?

Surprisingly, not at all! They are very much affordable. See product range below with their prices.
