As we welcome spring with the traditional Thai New Year festival, people are already preparing for a bright & joyous summer season that’s just around the corner. A time for families to gather and enjoy a breath of fresh air – as well as can be expected in a world of pollution and news headlines filled with doom & gloom.
2013 has been a modest yet fruitful time for Siam Natural Products of Thailand with several new entries in natural healthy and beauty care products. Thailand is famous for its tropical climate where ‘snow birds’ from around the world escape to adventure, relax & enjoy in the winter months of sun & fun in Thailand, yet people also quickly learn about how traditional culinary offerings, spa-massage treatments and natural lifestyles compliment Thai TCM (traditional Thai medicine) known as ‘holistic’ health.
Because of the geographic location, climate, and rich soil, a wide variety of fruits, plants, and vegetables are native to southeast Asia which aren’t found anywhere else on earth.
We’ve been writing about the various botanicals over the past couple of years. With the world in an economic slump, more and more people are seeking ways to save money and find natural health remedies for fitness, health, and skin care beauty products as an alternative means to what the multinational corporations tout at increasingly unreasonably high prices.
This mindset has spurned a booming on-line business for smaller independent manufacturers in south east Asia who market raw natural health & beauty products.
You’ll find more natural compounds, root tubers, flowers, and rhizomes that treat numerous conditions that are not manufactured with harmful chemicals whatsoever. People forget that it was only decades ago that the ‘industrial revolution’ brought with it chemical processing and plant extraction methods that are downright harmful to human health – yet, the corporations hammer their TV commercials to get us to buy their seemingly elegant pitch. This deceptive means of mass marketing has no regard for you, your family, or your loved ones, as they are only interested in more & more corporate profits. Meanwhile, heart disease, cancer, and numerous other health ailments increase exponentially for the users of tainted chemical based products.
It is a fact that ladies use an average of 500 chemicals a day from deodorant, toothpaste to cosmetics and hair care products. Before all of the modern technology, ladies used plants, herbs and flowers for cosmetics. This traditional method of skin and body care was passed down from generation to generation from essentially what was growing locally.
A notable 100% natural skin care and spa facial product that has been used in Burma for 2,000 years and is still the number one skin care product for ladies and men is called, Thanaka. The pulverized powder from the bark and heartwood pulp offers numerous benefits.
Thanaka, (Limonia acidissima) is a native aromatic tree that grows in the foothills of the Himalayas in northern Myanmar. In most recent years skin care specialists in France, Switzerland, and NYC have discovered Burmese Thanaka and have many great testimonials to offer.
