Due to the inability to export Thanaka products amid the current COVID-19 pandemic, Ayadaw Thanaka Association is planning to produce high-valued Thanaka products such as beads, combs, statues, Thanaka facial foam, Thanaka leave shampoo, powder, lotion and other traditional medicines made from Thanaka.

In the post-COVID-19 period, the traditional Myanmar Thanaka will be produced in high-quality products to be sold in shops, said U Kyaw Moe, Chairman of the Myanmar Thanaka Association.
Due to the inability to export Thanaka products amid the current COVID-19 pandemic, Ayadaw Thanaka Association is planning to produce high-valued Thanaka products such as beads, combs, statues, Thanaka facial foam, Thanaka leave shampoo, powder, lotion and other traditional medicines made from Thanaka.
The Ayadaw Thanaka venue has been closed at present as COVID-19 cases are on the rise, facing an economic downturn. Both growers and brokers are affected by the lack of sales and in order to revitalize the economy, plans are underway to set up shops to produce and sell a wide range of high-end Thanaka products, according to U Kyaw Moe.
While everyone in the business is affected, Ayadaw is more affected by the economic crisis since most Thanaka trees are grown in Ayadaw. The plan to produce and sell the high-valued Thanaka products also aims to make a living for the local Thanaka growers so that they can generate income, and people will also be able to easily buy them in shops. – Min Htet Aung (Mandalay Sub-Printing House)/GNLM
