From Our Happy Customers

"My sensitive skin does not tolerate any moisturizer, and for the last twenty years I have been using exclusively vegetal oils on my face. Royal Thanaka, however, has changed that. Its all-natural moisturizer is light, but it keeps my skin moist and protected all day without clogging my pores. I strongly recommend the Royal Thanaka moisturizer to all those who, like me, care about the health of their skin as well as the health of the planet." - Emma

"With a sensitive skin like mine, I can only tolerate the best. And I have used this product for over two weeks. No breakout! It has left my skin so soft. Love it! Plus the product is not greasy and is light as a feather when you apply it and it works beautifully to hydrate my skin. I also appreciate that no animals were used in its testing." - Nachin

Our Story

How Is Thanaka Made?

Step 1

Thanaka is principally made from the Limonia Acidissima tree.  A tree must be at least 35 years old before it is considered mature enough to yield good-quality cuttings.

Step 2

Bark or wood are harvested in the form of small logs from healthy, mature Thanaka trees, which continue to grow after the harvest.

Step 3

Thanaka paste is made by grinding the small wood logs with a small amount of water on a circular stone slab.  The paste can then be applied or dried into powder.
