What is the name of the safest ingredient in a sunless tan?

Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) is currently the only sunless tanning ingredient on the market approved by the FDA and backed by science. And when applied it creates a skin-browning effect that is the result of a nontoxic chemical reaction between DHA and the amino acids which are part of the upper layer of your skin’s surface, much like the browning effect in food caramelization.

The tan normally fades within seven to ten days as this is the speed the skin sheds the upper dead layer of skin. Since this is a natural process the self tan fades evenly.
