How does spray tanning work?
The active ingredients in spray tan solution are DHA (dihydroxyacetone) and Erythrulose.
When sprayed on the skin, DHA reacts with the proteins in the skin’s superficial layer to form a golden-brown color. Your skin begins to darken 2-3 hours after application and reaches its peak color within 24 hours. The color will gradually fade through natural exfoliation, just like a tan from the sun
Erythrulose is similar to DHA as an active ingredient because it also produces color on the skin and is a naturally based sugar found in red raspberries. It works in combination with DHA to produce a tan that lasts longer, fades more evenly, and provides natural looking color for all skin types. Erythrulose continues to develop over 48 hours which extends the tan and creates the natural fade.
