Dihydroxyacetone (DHA)

Dihydroxyacetone

More commonly known as DHA, it is a natural tanning ingredient sourced from the fermentation of vegetable glycerine. When applied to the skin, DHA causes a natural reaction with the amino acids in the skin’s surface cells to create a tan. DHA is non-toxic and only effects the outermost layer of the epidermis (stratum corneum) so does
not damage skin.
