Established in 2002, Thann is a line of natural skin care, body, hair, and aromatherapy products from Thailand that officially launched in the US last year. I recently had the honor of hosting a few events around LA, getting the opportunity to learn all about their botanically-derived products and even trying them out for the last few weeks! Before I dive into my favorites, a bit of background; their quality products promote environmentally-friendly practices, support human rights, and don't support the use of child labor or animal testing. Their key ingredient is rice brain oil, which is rich with essential fatty acids, Vitamin E, and hydrating and antioxidant properties. Thann also boasts many different collections each inspired by aromatherapy and delivering unique dermatological benefits.
I had the opportunity to experience their Shiso Collection, which makes them the first brand to use Shiso extract as a key ingredient in skincare products. Shiso contains properties like Roesmarinic Acid, Linoleic Acid, and Glycoproteins, which revive the skin while protecting it from pollutants and environmental stressors. My favorite products from the line included the Facial Cleanser with nano shiso and green tea extracts, which is a light but creamy gel cleanser that is non-alkaline, non-comedogenic, and great for sensitive skin. I love that it's sulfate-free (pretty much a requirement with any cleanser I use), so it cleanses effectively without stripping my skin. It's a great morning cleanse-- easy to use, gentle, and effective. The green tea and witch hazel have really helped my redness and inflammation. Similar to the cleanser, the Astringent Toner with Shiso and Algae extracts is a gentle, easy-to-use toner for morning and night. It's alcohol-free, moisturizes, soothes, and purifies the skin.
Other favorites from the Shiso line include the Age Inversion Face Cream with Rice Protein, Soy Protein, Nano Shiso, and Black Tea extracts. It's a simple but lovely daily moisturizer that keeps my skin hydrated throughout the day without making it ultra-greasy (or breaking me out! Yay!). I love that it's also anti-aging, as the rice protein, soy protein, and black tea promote reproduction of elastin and collagen, while antioxidants help protect the skin. I think my favorite product, though, was the Nano Shiso Revitalizing Face Mask, which comes in two packets (each filled with either a powder or gel), that you mix together to form a thick paste. After applying a very thick layer to the skin, you wait about 15 minutes and then peel it off. Immediately I could tell my skin looked brighter, calmer, and even glowier, as the mask helps banish dullness. It's super balancing, and a great mask to use every week.
Their body products are similarly beautiful, and some of my favorites. At both events I hosted with Thann, they had this incredible Aromatic Wood diffuser, which also comes in a fragrance mist that I spritz around my room and instantly fills me with calm and tranquility. Their hand cream from the Eden Breeze collection also smells amazing, is lightweight, moisturizing, and is filled with amazing ingredients like organic evening primrose oil, organic olive oil, and organic rose water. Finally, their Shiso Hair Mask and Eden Breeze Body Oil Spray are also lovely additions to my beauty routine.
Overall, I've really enjoyed all the products I've tried from Thann. They smell amazing, are gentle and effective, and the company ethos aligns with a lot of my beauty priorities. I'm super excited to continue using my Thann products, and anxious to see how they continue to expand in the US market.
