The people of Myanmar (Burma) have used thanaka to protect and beautify the skin for over 2,000 years. Our Thanaka comes from the Limonia Acidissima tree.
Thanaka is a nutrient-dense paste packed in vitamin E, which protects the skin against polluted air and free radicals - the unstable compounds that damage cell structure.
Thanaka is an effective moisturizer, and its hydrating and cooling effects make it ideal for post-sun exposure. Combine thanaka with our other hydrating ingredients like ahiflower oil, grapeseed oil, and shea butter and say ‘goodbye’ to dry skin.
Thanaka also contains properties that inhibit Tyrosinase, an agent responsible for melanin synthesis and skin discoloration. The regular use of Royal Thanaka’s Ultra Rich Moisturizing Cream can improve your skin’s complexion.
The use of natural plant materials has a lower environmental impact. The indigenous remedies provided by thanaka help to enhance our relationship with nature. By using the ingredient, we are following traditional Burmese practices, going back to nature’s basics and working to create a healthier planet.
