What is DHA?
Dihydroxyacetone is a colorless sugar derived from sugar cane and sugar beets. In the 1920s, German scientists first uncovered Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) as a revolutionary skin-coloring agent but it wasn’t until the 1960’s that Coppertone revolutionized the tanning industry by introducing “Quick Tan,” a groundbreaking lotion that promised users an overnight bronze. This product was incredibly alluring for those who wanted to achieve sun-kissed skin without spending hours in direct sunlight and rapidly gained popularity among consumers looking for a convenient alternative. By 1973, Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) – the active ingredient in sunless tanning products – had gained approval from the Food and Drug Administration as a safe cosmetic product. From then onward, DHA-based self-tanner quickly grew popular amongst consumers desiring more consistent bronzing results for their skin without sunlight exposure!
