English translation:Glycyrrhixin acid
Explanation:
There have been a few sugars proposed as health drugs for instance by
Nucelle. Perhaps this is one of them. The Japanese you are looking to translate can be found on the web here, where it is a drug component
http://web.kyoto-inet.or.jp/people/saya35/kyo.html
and here where it is a skin treatment
http://www.cosme-a.co.jp/syouhin.htm
glycolic acid seems to be adverstised in the same way here
http://www.mvkellymd.com/product.htm
http://www.capri-palace.com/farm/en/treatment/t0.html

No that won't do, both glycolic acid and the one you are looking for are mentioned seperately in another skin treatment here

Thanks for the excellent research. I will go with your choice as it is also closest to the katakana. The context is tests for sugars in multivitamin drinks rather than an external treatment. I hope you can still enjoy the occasional stick of liquorice.
