DHA-free Tanning Range
BeautyLab has introduced a DHA-free version of its Peptide Tanning range. The line, which consists of DHA-free Peptide Tanning Instant Colour Rapid Tan and Peptide Tanning Lotion, contains: erythrulose, a natural keto-sugar developed to reduce the disadvantages of DHA allowing the tanned appearance to look natural and last longer; organic aloe vera extracts to soften the dead skin cells off the body, making the removal process easier; organic sea fennel which increases circulation, energises the skin and increases the production of collagen and elastin; as well as Hawaiian sea algae, chamomile extract and orange oil.
Initially developed for the label's salons, the Peptide Tanning line is now included in its retail range. If you want a flawless, professional tanning application and can afford the price, head to a spa or salon. Most beauticians are well trained in tanning courses.
Dihydroxyacetone, better known as DHA, is a colourless three-carbon sugar that causes a chemical reaction resulting in a tan. When DHA is applied to the skin, it reacts with protein molecules on the outermost layer of the epidemis--the stratum corneum. Depending on the type of protein it interacts with, DHA may cause a change in pigment from yellow to dark brown. This chemical process darkens the skin to resemble a suntan.
Because DHA stays on the outermost layer of the skin, side effects are minimal. First-time users often get undesirable staining on their hands or other body parts, and tanning effects may be uneven. These side effects can be avoided by exfoliating skin before use of DHA. However, some people may be allergic to DHA, resulting in contact dermatitis.
