Origin of Thanaka

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.

As a 74-year-old woman with sensitive skin, I'm delighted with Royal Thanaka. Just a few dabs in "problem" spots plump up my skin and make fine lines and grooves disappear. It's my secret weapon against aging skin.

How Is Thanaka Made?

Thanaka is principally made from the Limonia Acidissima tree, which grows abundantly in central Myanmar.

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.
