Q: WHAT IS DHA?
DHA is an acronym for Dihydroxyacetone. DHA is the active ingredient found in all sunless tanning products. It is a simple carbohydrate that is primarily used as an ingredient in sunless tanning products. It is often derived from plant sources such as sugar beets and sugar cane, and by the fermentation of glycerin. DHA does not make your skin cells darker in pigmentation, but rather reacts with the proteins and amino acids found in the top layer of your skin to create a darkening effect or ‘sunless tan’.
Q: WHAT'S GOOD ABOUT DHA?
- Sunless Tanning
- Getting darker and browner equals a sunless tan without the cancer-causing ultraviolet rays.
- Our product uses 100% Organic DHA
- Brown Color
- FDA Approved for Topical Use
- Of all the sunless tanning chemicals DHA is by far the safest. It penetrates the outer layer of dead skin cells. That's it.
Q: WHAT'S BAD ABOUT DHA?
- The reaction DHA causes isn't with the melanin, the sun blocking parts of your skin, so you won't get any sunscreen protection.
- Due to the fact it is derived from sugar, it is sticky at first. Make sure to take time to dry before putting on loose clothing.
