WHAT IS THE DHA TANNING?
The concept. How Does DHA Tan Really Work?
What is DHA?
DHA (Dihydroxyacetone) is a derivative of sugar cane. It is an active ingredient 100% natural and completely harmless for the skin, which has been used for more than 40 years for medical purposes.
Can tanning DHA produce any type of allergic reaction?
DHA is a large molecule that it is impossible to penetrate into the deep layers of the skin, which guarantees safety as it can only act on the most superficial layer.
How long does the tan usually last?
The tan lasts between 5 and 10 days on average. Factors such as skin type, Daily activities and skin care, make the results vary significantly from one person to another.
Why do some people last fewer days?
The length of the tan can vary for multiple reasons, the type of skin or the particular habits of each can significantly modify the duration of the tan. As an example, we could say that cleansing products with inadequate pH or with detergent contents in their composition, result in a shorter than usual duration.
Does the hair have to be protected in the application?
No, DHA does not react to contact with hair or body hair,
So no special care should be taken in the application as opposed to traditional self-tanning agents. Will the clothes stain?
DHA does not stain as it is not a dye or make-up, although in the first few hours after application small particles of DHA can be transferred to clothing. DHA being a water-soluble component, is easily removed from natural fibers such as cotton.
Does DHA have any odours?
No, the solution contains no perfumes or any unpleasant odor normally associated with self-tanning agents. Unlike other solutions, The lotions we use are completely odourless.
How often can a session be held?
We recommend a session every 7 days. You can perform as many sessions as you want, although we recommend exfoliation between session and session to completely eliminate possible remains.
What are the poor results of tanning using compressor and airbrush?
Designed for nail painting and tattooing, the use of airbrushes and compressors for tanning DHA is very questionable, as they generate a spray at too much pressure, in a very narrow jet. By firing a lot of product at a lot of pressure and distance, the airbrushes stain the walls and a lot of product is wasted. As it does not have a drying function, the excess of product on the skin stains the clothes and generates very irregular results. They were the first equipment used for the application of tanning DHA, nowadays they have been completely obsolete due to their low performance and the dissatisfaction of the clients. I have been told that the DHA lotion a little dry the skin, is it true? No, Corpora DHA lotion has been enriched with Retinol (Vitamin A) and Aloe Vera (natural moisturizer derived from the cactus), with which we managed to nourish, Moisturize and soften the skin while tanning.
Can pregnant women be sprayed with DHA?
Yes, in principle there is no risk for the mother, much less for the fetus. In any case, we recommend always carry out a short test of contact with the product, since pregnant women have a somewhat unpredictable metabolism, and tend to develop sensitivities to some products.
What should I do immediately after a session?
It is imperative that you do not shower or wet, or apply any type of cream, makeup, cologne and avoid activities that can cause excessive sweating in the following 8 hours. After this time, before performing any of the described activities, you must shower first.
Will I be able to sunbathe after a tanning session?
Yes, you can sunbathe calmly, after at least 6-8 hours and after having done the first shower to eliminate possible excesses. In any case remember that it is not protected against solar radiation, since DHA does not activate melanin production, so you should continue to use your usual sunscreen.
