Welcome to Thanaka Shop.

Supplying The World With The Best Quality Original Thanaka Products From Myanmar


Thanaka Shop was founded to bring only the upmost highest quality Thanaka direct from Myanmar and make it available to those outside of Myanmar. Many people outside of Asia may have never heard of Thanaka and its natural benefits on the skin. Our aim is to introduce this amazing natural ingredient to the world. We would love to see a world where less chemicals are used in cosmetics and skincare and more natural ingredients are used. It is possible is the masses are educated more and demand a more natural skincare regime.


Thanaka cream has been used by Burmese women for over 2000 years. It has a fragrant scent somewhat similar to sandalwood. The creamy paste is applied to the face in attractive designs, the most common form being a circular patch on each cheek, nose, sometimes made stripey with the fingers known as thanaka bè gya, or patterned in the shape of a leaf, often also highlighting the bridge of the nose with it at the same time. It may be applied from head to toe (thanaka chi zoun gaung zoun). Apart from cosmetic beauty, thanaka also gives a cooling sensation and provides protection from sunburn. 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.
