The double whitening day cream is very thin and smells like the serum. The texture is more creamy as well. Both product goes along well with each other. Nowadays products usually come with ingrediants such as Gingseng and Ginko which is good for the skin other than feasting on it, we get to apply it on our skin as well.

I usually apply the day cream as a moisturizer to protect my skin for the day.


Read on if you wish to know the story of Tanaka, found in these Bio-essence Tanaka White products.

Tanaka (also known as Thanakha) has a rich history in Myanmar. It is a traditional whitening secret adored by females in Myanmar for more than 2000 years. It is used in daily life, as well as in ceremonies where face paintings bear cultural significance of
nobility and purity. Children or young girls will imprint whimsical Tanaka designs on their cheeks using shapes like leaf or heart shaped, little whirls, rounds or shell as a form of facial art.

Its uses:
Tanaka means both "cosmetic for beautifying the face" and "cleansing agent". It is
recognized as a great aid to help withstand the heat of the sun and is
thus an ideal cosmetic for those who have to work under direct sunlight. Women who work outdoor apply thick layers of Tanaka as a sunscreen to prevent sunburn while its natural cooling properties help them tolerate the intense heat during the day.

The traditional production of Tanaka:
A simple procedure where the bark and roots are stripped, soaked in water, grounded and pulverized using a mortar and a flat stone into a fragrant paste, which has not changed for centuries. The light yellow paste with a mild fragrance is then applied to the face

Do you find all that Interesting? I didn't know about it either, until I read about it.
