While Thanaka has been used in Myanmar for some 2000 years, I have been testing these ingredients myself on my rather hairy legs. After a few weeks, when I looked at my legs and thought, ‘Whose legs are these?’ I knew it was time to release this amazing product.

How does Thanaka Tree Powder and Safflower / Kusumba Oil Remove Body Hair?

With regular and repeated applications of a mixture of Thanaka Powder and Organic Safflower Oil, the hair follicles are weakened until they loose the ability to form hairs. Finally the hairs stop growing.

How Long Does It Take for Thanaka Hair Removal Mixture to Work?

The time it takes for the Thanaka and Safflower oil to remove unwanted body hair varies according to: The density of the hair type. This varies from person to person, between males and females, with hormonal status and where the hair is growing on the body. The depth of the hair follicles. How hair removal has been approached in the past. For example shaving and waxing can make the hair follicles produce seemingly denser hair and therefore, areas which have been shaved will take longer to treat. The thoroughness with which the Thanaka and Safflower Oil are massaged into the skin. Don’t worry if you run out of either the thanaka powder or the oil, you can buy top-ups on this page.

For light hair growth results can be achieved in 2-3 weeks.

For denser hair the results can take from 5 weeks up to four or even five months.

NATURAL HAIR REMOVAL KIT INGREDIENTS:

Limonia acidissima powder. (Thanaka or Thanakha Powder)

Thanaka powder is ground from the wood and roots of the Thanaka tree. The powder is light in colour with a very light sweet woody odour. Thanaka is a traditional cosmetic product of Myanmar (Burma) where it is used for permanent hair removal, as a facial foundation and to clean and protect the skin from the sun.

Our policy at Natural Spa Supplies is to obtain the best and most traditional sources for our products. Our Thanaka is Grade A which means it is 100% pure (not mixed with anything else) and that it comes from an established farm in Myanmar.

Carthamus tinctorius seed oil:

Safflower Seed Oil is cold pressed from organically grown seeds from a thistle like plant. This oil is also known as Kusumba or Kusuma Oil. We have selected high linoleic oil safflower oil – especially high in polyunsaturated fats and low in unsaturated fats. It means that the high linoleic safflower oil is non-comogenic (does not block the pores) and high in polyunsaturated fats, the hair removal mixture goes into the into the skin better.

Recipe No.1 for Natural Hair Removal Standard Formula


Mix one part of Thanaka Powder to two Parts of Organic Safflower Oil by volume.

Apply once a day.

Guidance: One 5ml teaspoon of Thanaka Powder weighs 1 gram. I have been using a 5ml measuring spoon and not a regular teaspoon by the way – there is a big difference between their capacity!

Recipe No.2 for Natural Hair Removal Enhanced Formula


The permanent hair removal may be able to be acheived a little bit faster by adding a small amount of soapnut liquid to the mixture. The principal is that soap aids adsorption of products into the skin. An added benefit is that the paste is a little smoother and easieir to apply. To make this formula, add the soapnut liquid to the powder first and mix. It will form crumbs. Then add the oil to acheive a smooth paste.

Mix 1 part of Thanaka Powder, 1/2 a part of Soapnut Liquid to 1 1/2-2 (one and a half to two) parts of Organic Safflower Oil by volume.
Make fresh daily.
Apply once a day.

Guidance: One 5ml teaspoon of Thanaka Powder weighs 1 gram. I have been using a 5ml measuring spoon and not a regular teaspoon by the way – there is a big difference between their capacity!

How Much Thanaka Powder Do You Need to Mix Up for Different Applications?

Face treatment, 1 tsp teaspoon Thanaka Powder combined, 1/2 teaspoon of Soapnut Liquid (optional) with 2 teaspoons Organic Safflower Oil

Directions for Permanent Hair Removal

Apply the freshly made mixture once a day to part of the skin where you want the hair to cease growing. The idea is to massage the Permanent Hair Removal Mixture into the hair follicles. It does speed up the process when you remove the hair first by shaving, waxing, plucking, sugaring or threading. Please do not use chemical hair removal products, (depilatories) as they could leave traces of chemicals in the hair follicle which could prevent the thanaka ingredient from reaching the hair follicles and working properly.

The action of the the hair removal mixture is enhanced when the hair is first removed from the folicle, by plucking, waxing, sugaring or threading. These processes leave the folicle empty and the hair remove mixture reaches the target site – the hair follicle. By shaving before applying the hair removal mixture, you are ‘stressing’ the hair follicle and as the follicle tries to produce new hair growth, the hair removal mixture impairs the function of the folicle. Emptying the hair folicle will give faster results than shaving.

For steady results massage the hair removal paste into the skin for 5 minutes. For the faster results, massage the hair removal mixture on the skin where you have unwanted hair for 20 minutes. Rinse the mixture off after 2-3 hours.

Alternatively apply the mixture at night and wash off any residue in the morning.

Marmesin contains UV-absorbing chromophores, with maximum absorption 335 nm, and marmesin could be a commercially useful UV-A filtering product. Generally 10% thanaka powder would be added to your sunscreen formula along with other effective ingredients. We haven’t has any SPF testing done on our batch and so this is not a SPF claim, just a point of interest for budding formulators. Please note standard chemical ingredents used in sunscreens bioaccumulate and destroy aquatic life and coral beds, so if you can create solutions using fully natural biodegradable products, it is always going to be better.

Decorating darker skin with light coloured patterns

(The way it is used by people in Myanmar) such covering the face and arms with a light application and then using a slightly thicker paste to design floral or leaf patterns, circles and square with accents on the bridge of the nose. These patterns can be created with the fingertips, a brush, or a damp sponge. (The 1 inch or 2 inch silk fina sponges would be ideal for Thanaka applications.)

5 reviews for Permanent Natural Hair Removal Kit, Grade A Thanaka and Organic Safflower (Kusumba) Oil

  1. C.R.

    I used the kit on my legs, usually after a bath & massaged it onto my legs for about 10mins each leg. I did this every couple of days & have found that the hair has grown back slower & finer.
    I ran out of the Safflower Oil but I’ll get some more after moving and finish it off. It is all very intriguing.

  2. F.S

    Hi there, just wanted to say how much I love your stuff and tell you my experience of your hair removal powder. I bought some last year and dutifully applied it from purchase (in June I think) until the end of September. It took ages for there to be any noticeable difference but it really was sort of not growing by the end of the 3 months. I stopped putting it on. The hair has started to grow back at the beginning of this but way less than it did before and I’m still really pleased with the results, thank you. You get a lot of powder for your money – I was putting on my upper lip and chin. So I’ve got a lot left and if it starts to grow back too much I’ll start applying it again. Lockdown was a good time to be going round with a rather crusty lip and chin! Thanks, F.S

  3. Susan

    Done my legs. It is fabulous. Moving onto my chin next. Thank you so much!

  4. Elena (verified owner)

    BRILLIANT AND PERMANENT!!!
    This is a gift from Nature! FAR MORE EFFECTIVE than other popular and temporary hair removals. How to thank you for sharing it? So grateful 🙂

  5. Sally Mittuch

    Thank you very Emma for your progress report. Yes, don’t worry if you do skip the odd day, you won’t loose any progress. When you resume again, the hair removal effect carries on.

  6. Emma Heap (verified owner)

    I have been using this on my underarms and lower arms for around 5 weeks, and have definitely noticed a reduction in new hair growth. On my arms, which are very fine hairs, I have very little regrowth now, and with my underarms there is a distinct reduction in hair growth. I will persevere (don’t always apply every day!), but pleased to see a difference. For the price and convenience (as well as natural products) I am very impressed, even though you need to be patient and persistent!
