Tanning Solution: Active Ingredient
DHA is listed in the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) as a color additive for use in imparting color to the human body. DHA has been approved by the FDA. However, its use in cosmetics - including sunless "tanning" products - is restricted to external application. According to the CFR, "externally applied" cosmetics are those "applied only to external parts of the body and not to the lips or any body surface covered by mucous membrane" (21 CFR 70.3v). DHA reacts with the skin’s amino acids resulting in a “tan” similar looking to that of the sun. The darker you can tan naturally the darker you should tan with a spray tan. Overexposure to DHA does not cause skin damage but can result in possible orange distortion of the skin. Like most cosmetics, avoid exposure to the eyes, lips, and other parts of the body covered with a mucous membrane this should be accomplished using a barrier cream or similar form of skin barrier.
Additional Tanning Disclosures:
Spray tan solutions nor DHA protect you from UV rays from the sun and should not be thought of or treated as sunscreen or similar sun protector.
