Dihydroxyacetone (Dihydroxyacetone), also called glycerone, is a common active ingredient in sunless tanning creams or sprays. As a single carbohydrate, dihydroxyacetone is extracted from sugar beets or sugar cane, or produced through a glycerol fermentation process. In addition to being an ingredient in sunless tanning aids, it also has uses in the production of red wine.


Although colorless itself, dihydroxyacetone can color the skin on contact. It does so by reacting with dead epidermal cells. This produces the brown color associated with dihydroxyacetone tanning agents. This color also fades quickly as the dead cells are shed within a week. This is the reason why people who want a sunless tan must apply this product regularly.
