FIND YOUR NATURAL GLOW, FROM HEAD TO TOE

Achieve a noticeable, healthy-looking tan in just a few hours with the standard sunless self-tanning ingredient Dihydroxyacetone (DHA). During the self-tanning process, DHA is linked to the amino acids on the skin surface. The resulting tan can last for up to two weeks as it fades either naturally by natural exfoliation or mechanically by using a peeling. 

DHA can be used in applications such as:

  • Tanning emulsions
  • Bronzing gels, sprays, foams, and wipes
  • Daily skincare products
  • Sunless tanning booths
  • In-shower applications

Advantages at a glance of DHA:

  • Sunless & safe tanning
  • Natural origin (COSMOS and NATRUE)
  • Outstanding product safety
  • Extremely long shelf life
