Understanding DHA in Your summerbrons. Tan

Understanding DHA in Your summerbrons. Tan

Achieving a healthy, sun-kissed glow without the harmful effects of UV rays is a dream for many. At summerbrons. Tan, we make this dream a reality by harnessing the power of DHA (Dihydroxyacetone), a naturally occurring sugar that safely interacts with your skin to create a beautiful tan.

What is DHA and How Does it Work?

DHA is a simple sugar found in plants like sugarcane and sugar beet. When applied topically to the skin, it interacts with amino acids in the uppermost layer (stratum corneum) to produce a brown pigment called melanoidins. This process is similar to how natural tanning occurs, but without the harmful UV radiation involved.

What Makes summerbrons. Tan's DHA Special?

We believe in providing the best possible experience for our customers, which is why we use organic and natural DHA derived from sugarcane. This ensures:

  • Safety: Our natural DHA is gentle on the skin and free from harsh chemicals often found in synthetic alternatives.
  • Effectiveness: Our natural DHA delivers a beautiful, even-toned tan that develops gradually and fades naturally.
  • Sustainability: We are committed to using eco-friendly ingredients, and choosing organic and natural DHA aligns with this commitment.

Here's a quick breakdown of the process:

  • Application: You apply summerbrons. Tan with DHA to your skin, using the guide colour to see where you have applied. The guide colour doesn't affect your final glow and washes away with your first shower. 
  • Absorption: The DHA penetrates the top layer of your skin (stratum corneum).
  • Reaction: DHA reacts with amino acids in your skin to form melanoidins.
  • Tan Development: As melanoidins are produced, your skin gradually develops a tan within 2-4 hours, reaching its peak color in 24-48 hours.
  • Fading: The tan fades naturally over time as your skin cells turnover (typically within 5-7 days).

With summerbrons. Tan, you can enjoy a beautiful, safe, and natural-looking tan without compromising your health or the environment. Experience the difference of organic and natural DHA and achieve your summer glow all year long!
