Wondering what a spray tan is and how it works? 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 colour. Your skin begins to darken 2-3 hours after application and reaches its peak colour within 24 hours. The colour 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 colour 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 colour for all skin types. Erythrulose continues to develop over 48 hours which extends the tan and creates the natural fade.
