Thanaka Cream, Myanmar
In Myanmar, Burmese women saw the wisdom in sun protection 🌞 long before SPF became ubiquitous.
Their ancient beauty secret involves grinding the wood and bark of a Thanaka tree into a fine powder that they make into a paste and apply to their foreheads, cheeks and chins. The tree powder (can we call it that?) has been found to protect against sun damage, free radicals and brightens ✨ complexion.
