Applications of Thanaka

This natural product is a remarkable herbal skin conditioner as it can render skin smooth and soft. Apart from its fragrant scent somewhat similar to sandalwood, it imparts curing effect as anti-acne and reduces inflammation. And perhaps of its intrinsic UV-block spectrum when applies on skin, it is accustomed to wear this make-up as a natural sun-block. When applies in the night, this herbal powder provides anti-wrinkle effect.

Thanaka product called Bio-essence Tanaka White

I would like to share with you this new skin care product from Bio Essence, using Thanaka as primary ingredient. It is called Bio Essense Tanaka White and came to market around beginning of 2008, but product information is unavailable until lately.

Basically, it has the core benefits of Thanaka, processed into lotion using emulsification with added extracts. You can find the retail price and product details belowed. My comment is that it is not necessary to process this organic skin care product with emulsifiers and fats into lotion as these co-ingredients are basically petroleum-based. It maybe more gainful to just use it as it is, to enjoy the same benefits. My personal judgement is some of these c0-ingredients especially fats may hinder Thanaka's anti-acne function. Next, it is rather pricey after blending into lotion, and I can easily sell the same product at a fraction of their selling price, and still giving more benefits of Thanaka...
