Tanning Solution: Active Ingredient
DHA is listed in the regulations as a color additive for use in imparting color to the human body. However, its use in cosmetics--including sunless "tanning" products--is restricted to external application (21 CFR 73.2150). 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). The industry has not provided safety data to FDA in order for the agency to consider approving it for use on these exposure routes, including "misting" from tanning booths.
Additional Tanning Disclosures:
Spray tan solutions nor DHA protect skin from UV rays from the sun and should not be thought of or treated as sunscreen or similar sun protector.
