Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) is a self-tanning agent used in cosmetics designed to provide a tanned appearance without the need for sun exposure.
Dihydroxyacetone powder is used as a major ingredient in most sunless tanning products. It can be used alone for the desired effect or combined with other tanning additives such as Erythrulose for a more specific effect. Regardless of the product used, the user’s skin usually begins to change color within 2-4 hours. Over the next 24-72 hours, the color will get darker.
Dihydroxyacetone is often used as a formula raw material for cosmetics, which can play the role of sunscreen, moisturizing, preventing ultraviolet rays from invading the skin, etc., and can make people’s skin produce an artificial brown color.
To getting a natural-looking glow, using dihydroxyacetone via sunless tanner is your safest option. Most studies have confirmed that this is a much safer alternative to indoor and outdoor tanning which puts people at risk for developing the deadliest type of skin cancer-melanoma.
Dihydroxyacetone is not like other chemicals, it need be stored at 2-8℃, dry and cold place. So we need control temperature during delivery.
For sample order, like 500g or 1kg, we ship it by Fedex.
For 500kg or 1ton order, we advice client to ship by air with normal temperature delivery, and it won’t influence DHA quality.
For mass order, some clients prefer shipping by ocean, because it will have less freight. But considering the storage temperature and long shipping time, we only could book full container with cold chain transportation. LCL is not acceptable.
Our company is professional supplier for DHA, and cooperate with many US local clients, so the quality could be guaranteed. 1kg sample to test quality or bulk order for mass production of DHA all could be available. If you need COA and MSDS, pls contact us.
