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. However, its use in cosmetics – including sunless “tanning” products is restricted to external application. According to CFR, “externally applied” cosmetics are those “applied only to external parts of the body and not applied 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 can tan with a spray tan. Like most cosmetics, avoid exposure to the eyes, lips, and other parts of body covered with mucous membrane. This should be accomplished by following the staff’s breathing instructions as to avoid inhaling or ingesting the sunless product .
Your spray tan should last 5-10 days, depending on your skin type and how well you take care of your sunless tan. It is very important to keep your skin moisturized after your spray tan, avoiding long baths or showers and hot tubs. Salt water exposure or a chlorinated pool can also shorten your spray tan.
