What Is THANAKA
From the wood of a small tree in Myanmar, Thanaka has been used for over 2000 years by Burmese people to protect and beautify the skin. Pulverized on a stone slab and mixed with water to form a paste, this natural cosmetic is most commonly applied topically. It is here where Thanaka begins to work it’s magic.
Thanaka has been chosen as the chief ingredient in our Sun Paste for a number of reasons:
From chemical compounds that destroy ocean reefs to mined minerals carved out of the earth, many of the active ingredients found in today’s sunscreens have extremely adverse effects on our environment. Thanaka is the most ecological solution due to it’s regenerative nature and can be grown locally through sustainable farming techniques.
It is no secret that it is hot in Myanmar. Located close to the equator in South East Asia, the sun’s exposure is intense. To protect their skin from this harsh environment, the Burmese uncovered Thanaka as a natural and efficient alternative to sunblock.
With high amounts of Vitamin E, Thanaka is a natural antioxidant which protects our skin against free radicals and polluted air. In addition, Thanaka is an effective moisturizer and it’s hydrating and cooling effect make it ideal for post-sun exposure as well.
Thanaka contains two active compounds, coumarin and marmesin, which account for anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-acne, and anti-aging properties. In other words, Thanaka is responsible for effectively removing dead skin cells and controlling excessive facial oil.
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.
Created by surfers who were both tired of having to reapply sunscreen constantly throughout the day and deeply concerned about the environmental effects of conventional sunscreens washing off into the oceans in alarming quantities, MANDA Organic Sun Paste (SPF 50) was designed to be totally safe and long-lasting, through hours of wind, water, and sweat.
Unlike lotion or spray sunscreens, you don’t have to ask friends to rub it in, wonder if you missed a spot, or guess when it’s time to reapply.
Use MANDA to cover sun-prone areas like your nose, cheeks, shoulders, and neck. Or put some on scars, moles, or other sensitive places. Its visibility is a benefit with kids, too—draw some designs and sunblock becomes fun.
Whether you’re a hardcore surfer or an extra-prepared parent, this natural sunblock has you covered.
