Genuine thanaka has a light sandalwood-esque fragrance, which becomes more apparent when mixed with oil or water. On the international market, we have come across many products marketed as thanaka, which were completely fake - i.e, either heavily adulterated, laced with synthetic aromas and/or contained undefined beige powders which did not have any actual thanaka powder in them at all. Apart from colour and aroma, the density of the powder is also an important telltale sign. As a wood, thanaka powder is more dense (takes up less space) than a standard fruit or vegetable powder. Needless to say, fraudulent Thanaka powders will do nothing to remove unwanted hair (or provide any of its other glorious benefits).

In the local language of Burma “THANAKA” means “Elephant”, it is a giant tree, found in Burma. Thanaka powder is a soft bark powder of the Burmese Thanaka tree. Its cosmetic use goes back several thousand years to the famous Queen of Peikthano who used to mix ground Thanaka bark with water to create a facial mask paste that beautified her skin.
Thanaka contains a constellation of very unique proteins that target the hair and stop the hair follicle growing new hair, over time. Thanaka also contains two more active compounds, coumarin and marmesin, which account for its anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-acne, and anti-aging properties. Thanaka effectively removes dead skin cells and controlls excessive facial oil too.
Studies have also revealed that Thanaka inhibits tryosinase, the enzyme that triggers melanin synthesis and affects skin discoloration. Therefore, the regular use of Thanaka can help decrease melanomas activity and brighten your skin’s complexion. It is used successfully throughout Burma as a natural sunscreen.
