Limonia acidissima is the only species within the monotypic genus Limonia, native to Burma, Sri Lanka, India, Pakistan, and Java.
Common names include wood-apple, elephant-apple, monkey fruit, and curd fruit and a variety of names in the languages of its native area.

Since ancient times Burmese women have used the wood and bark extensively as a natural cosmetic, sunscreen, skin preservation treatment, and insect repellent.

Thanaka is a yellowish-white cosmetic paste made from ground bark. It's a distinctive feature of Myanmar (formerly Burma) seen commonly applied to the face and sometimes the arms of women and girls and to a lesser extent men and boys. The use of Thanaka has also spread to neighboring countries including Thailand.

The wood of several trees may be used to produce Thanaka cream; these trees grow abundantly in centralto north Myanmar. Thanaka trees are perennials, and a tree must be at least 35 years old before it is considered mature enough to yield good-quality cuttings. Thanaka in its natural state is sold as small logs individually or in bundles, but nowadays also available as a pasteandr in powder form.

Thanaka cream is made by grinding the bark, wood, or roots of a Thanaka tree with a small amount water on a circular stone slab called kyauk pyin which has a channel round the rim for the water to drain into.
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, 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 promotes softer, smoother skin. It is also an anti-fungal.

Thanaka is 100% organic and natural. Its a yellowish-white cosmetic creamy paste containing the 2 active ingredients of coumarin and marmesin.

Coumarin is a phytochemical, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-ageing and anti-oxidant agent. It removes all kinds of bacteria and fungi from human skin while actively producing the two major proteins of collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin reverse premature ageing and keeps skin supple, elastic and young looking

The marmesin content naturally protects the skin from harmful UV-A rays. UV-A degrades both skin proteins and moisture which causes wrinkles, fine lines and premature ageing. Marmesin also shields the skin from harmful UV-B rays. UV-B increases the production of melanin in our skin resulting in skin discoloration, freckles and even skin cancer.
