DHA, dihydroxyacetone, is a chemical derived from plant sources such as sugar beets, sugar cane, and the fermentation of glycerin.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, the most effective sunless tanning products contain dihydroxyacetone (DHA). DHA is a colorless chemical which interacts with the amino acids in dead skin cells to produce a brown color change. Since these dead skin cells are constantly being shed, the color change produced by DHA (spray tanning chemical) typically lasts about five to seven days.
DHA is not absorbed through the skin into the body and it has no known toxicity. DHA has been listed with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) since 1973, and has been used in cosmetic preparations for almost 30 years.
