Dihydroxyacetone (DHAT) is a color additive that is added to sunless tanning products to produce an artificial tan. Although this agent has been used extensively as safe sunless tanning, no published data are available to judge whether the abuse of DHAT causes a potential hazard to the human skin. The purpose of this study was to clarify whether frequent treatment with DHAT solutions had a deleterious effect on the wide skin surface of hairless descendants of Mexican hairless dogs. The skin… Expand
Exposure to Dihydroxyacetone in Sunless Tanning Products: Understanding the Risks
TLDR
This integrative research review will examine evidence-based research regarding the risks of using DHA-containing products and Nola Pender’s health promotion model to identify strategies that healthcare providers can use when developing anticipatory guidance to address factors leading to barriers in health promoting behaviors. Expand
Contact dermatitis to self‐tanning products
TLDR
A 25-year-old healthy, atopic female patient presented with a story of the sequential use of three self-tanning products in the winter of 2007; she was on no medication and developed an itchy, red, scaly rash at the sites of application. Expand
An Analysis of the Toxicity of Dihydroxyacetone in Spray Tanners when Exposed to Ultraviolet Radiation
Dihydroxyacetone, recognized as DHA, is a common additive used in spray tans responsible for providing pigmentation to the skin similar to a UV tan via the set of mechanisms known as the MaillardExpand

TLDR
It is suggested that hairless dogs may be useful laboratory animals for the investigation of dermatotoxicity of ACs in conjunction with UV irradiation. Expand
Contact Dermatitis Induced by Chemicals for Hair-dyeing in Hairless Dogs
Dermatotoxicity of topical application of chemicals for hair-dyeing (CHD) was clinically and histopathologically investigated in hairless dogs. CHD examined were as follows: 1. Resorcinol (RCL), 2.Expand
Self-Tanning Lotions
TLDR
Self-tanning creams are a method of safely simulating the appearance of a tan without photoprotection, however, other sun protection will be required. Expand

Contact hypersensitivity to stainless steel cages (chromium metal) in hairless descendants of mexican hairless dogs
TLDR
Constant contact with stainless steel cages (chromium metal) caused contact hypersensitivity in hairless dogs with very sparse hairs, and avoidance of contact with the Stainless steel cages resulted in clinical improvement. Expand
Dinitrochlorobenzene(DNCB)-induced delayed-type hypersensitivity reaction in the dorsal skin of hairless dogs.
TLDR
The present data suggest an existence of slightly depressed cellular immunity in hairless dogs, and such an interesting finding as pigmentation due to deposition of melanin granules was observed in the sites treated with 0.01-0.1% DNCB inhairless dogs. Expand
Dihydroxyacetone, the active browning ingredient in sunless tanning lotions, induces DNA damage, cell-cycle block and apoptosis in cultured HaCaT keratinocytes.
TLDR
The effects of DHA on cell survival and proliferation of a human keratinocyte cell line, HaCaT, is investigated and a question about the long-term clinical consequences of treatment of the skin with this commonly used compound is raised. Expand
