SPRAY TAN FAQ
Q1. How do self tanners work?
The principle tanning agent used in all self tanning products is Dihydroxyacetone (DHA). This ingredient, which is derived from sugar beets, reacts with the amino acids in the skin to create the darkening or tanned appearance on the surface of the skin. The development of color takes anywhere from 2-4 hours and the intensity of color depends on DHA concentration in the product as well as each person's skin characteristics. The color will gradually fade through natural skin exfoliation just like a natural tan from the sun.
Q2. Is the DHA in sunless tanning products safe to use?
The FDA has approved DHA for external application on the skin. For misting applications, the FDA recommends protective measures be taken to guard against mist inhalation, ingestion, and contact with eyes.
