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.

How To Use
Mix 1-2 teaspoons our Thanaka Powder with 3x the amount in water until it forms a creamy paste.
Apply the cream evenly over your cleansed face. The mask will dry after 10 minutes depending on its layer thickness.
If you have a breakout that you want to spot-treat, make the paste a little thicker (use less water) so that you can get more coverage on that area. If you apply a thicker mixture, you need to leave it on longer.
The mask can easily be washed off with lukewarm water and then a splash or 2 of cold water to close your pores. We recommend keeping the Thanaka Mask on for 20min – 40min for optimal results.
Do this daily before bed as part of your daily facial cleanse. As a result, your skin will be smoother, softer and have a more even tone. If your skin if prone to acne your daily use of Thanaka powder should also result in a reduction and removal of acne.
Feel free to add a little fresh lemon juice if you want to enhance its blemish fighting properties.
