product description

Sunless Tanning Lotion Ingredient Erythrulose is a yellow to reddish sugar found in red berries, most commonly raspberries. Like DHA, it tans the skin due to a reaction with the amino acids (proteins) in the skins dead surface layer, producing a brownish tint.

It works in much the same manner as DHA. Neither ingredient uses the skins normal pigmentation or UV exposure to produce the tan coloration. But rather works as a chemical reaction on the skins dead surface cell layer, and changes the dead skin cells to a brownish tone. This is a similar reaction to how cut fruit can turn brownish when exposed to air.


Sunless Tanning Lotion Ingredient Erythrulose and DHA:

A sun-tanned appearance is a symbol of a healthy, dynamic, and active life. Yet, the damaging effects of sunlight and other sources of ultraviolet radiation on the skin are well documented. These effects are cumulative and potentially serious, and include sunburn, skin cancer, and premature aging of the skin.

Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) has been used in cosmetic self tanning products for many years, but it does have many disadvantages which have been troubling the people. Therefore, there is an eager desire to find a more safe and effective self-tanning agent to supersede DHA.

Erythrulose has been developed to reduce or even eliminate the disadvantages of DHA, namely an irregular and streaky tan as well as an intense drying effect. It presents a new solution for the increasing demand of self-tanning. It is a natural keto-sugar occurring in Red Raspberries, and may be produced by fermentation of the bacterium Gluconobacter followed by multiple purification steps.

Erythrulose and DHA


1.Tan Fade

With any self tanner, as the skins colored (tanned) dead cells flake off (millions a day) the lighter un-tanned skin appears, which is what causes a sunless tan to fade or lighten.

This can take anywhere from 2-10 plus days, depending on skin condition, products used, DHA level used, and skin care practices before and after tanning.

Sunless Tanning Lotion Ingredient Erythrulose when blended with DHA can help the tan tone appear "richer"; deeper and more even. Depending on the client, the tan fade rate may be slower, and smoother.


The sunless tan coloration may be more visually pleasing and "natural"; looking, as an Erythrulose tan is a slightly different tonality than DHA. It can add a warmer/redder tone to the final sunless tan. Though this can vary depending on the individual client, as each person's unique skin may differ in how it reacts.

Erythrulose is a slower working tanning agent, that can be less drying to the skin. When used alone, the tan developed is lighter in color than a DHA based tan.

Erythrulose generally takes 2-3 days to develop a tanned color, and reaches its maximum intensity after 4-6 days.

DHA takes 8-24 hours to completely darken, and intensifies for 2-4 days.

E/DHA blended products can make the tan appear darker on days 2-4 of application. This can also contribute to a slower fading tan, as the coloration peaks later in the tan development cycle.

So as the DHA tan is starting to begin its initial fade cycle, the Erythrulose is at its darkest range.

Many find a combo product provides a deeper more attractive tan. That wears more evenly, fades slower, and looks more "natural".
