About Sunless Tanning/Airbrush Tanning
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, The most effect products available are sunless or self-tanning lotions that contain dihydroxyacetone (DHA) as the active ingredient. DHA is a colorless sugar that interacts with the dead cells located in the stratum corneum of the epidermis. As the sugar interacts with the dead skin cells a color change occurs. This change usually lasts about five to seven days from the initial application. DHA has been used in cosmetic preparations for almost 30 years and was listed with the FDA in 1973. DHA is also used as an emulsifier, humectant and fungicide. It is declared safe and suitable for use in cosmetic and drugs used to color the skin. DHA is derived from glycerin (vegetable origin), which is a commonly used cosmetic and food ingredient. DHA is not absorbed into the body and poses no possibility of toxicity.
