    But what is Thanaka?

    Thanaka has been one of the most significant and distinctive features of Myanmar's culture for over two thousand years. Thanaka is simply a yellowish-white cosmetic paste made from the bark of the Thanaka tree and works as a natural sunblock, anti-itch treatment, scar healing cream, and melanin blocker. Traditionally, Thanaka cream is made by grinding the bark, wood, or roots of the Thanaka tree. 
    Thanaka trees must be at least 35 years old before it is considered mature enough to yield good-quality cuttings. The use of Thanaka is now spread to Myanmar's neighboring countries and it is particularly popular in Thailand.
