Thanaka is a paste made from the ground bark of Thanaka wood. It is a distinctive feature of the culture of Myanmar, seen commonly applied to the face and sometimes the arms of women, men and children. This ancient beauty ritual has continued for over 2,000 years!
Thanaka is packed with vitamin E, which is comprised of antioxidant, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, all things your skin loves! Thanaka also gives a cooling sensation and provides protection from extreme weather. It is believed to help remove acne and promote smooth skin. It is also an anti-fungal. The active ingredients of Thanaka are coumarin and marmesin.
Thanaka is an ancient skincare ingredient for modern skin problems: dryness, dullness, acne, sun damage, irritation and uneven tone. Royal Thanaka skincare products moisturize, nourish, and soothe dry, normal, oily, and sensitive skin.
Absolutely! In recent tests Thanaka showed strong anti-inflammatory, significant antioxidation, mild tyrosinase inhibition and slight antibacterial activities. Thus, the use of the Thanaka bark in the form of a watery paste as a skin care regimen is not only safe but also beneficial to skin.
