The active ingredient in self-tanning products is DHA, (dihydroxyacetone). It’s usually derived from plant sources like beets or sugar cane. The DHA in all VersaSpa products is provided by the #1 supplier in the world and is eco-certified by a third party. This assures purity and quality in each and every product.
When applied to the skin, DHA reacts with the proteins in the skin’s superficial layer to form a glowing, golden-brown color. Your skin begins to darken 2-3 hours after application and reaches its peak color within 24 hours. The color will gradually fade through natural exfoliation, just like a tan from the sun.
VersaSpa self-tanning products are also formulated with other ingredients like DMI and Erythrulose to enhance and extend your self-tan results as well green and brown marine algae to hydrate and firm the skin. Odor-Ban 200™ technology also eliminates any tanning odor.
