FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is Xen-Tan?
XEN-TAN is a premium sunless self-tan company that specializes in products that give a natural, olive undertone color. By utilizing the most innovative ingredients and advanced technology in the industry, XEN-TAN products nourish the skin, contain pleasant aromas and give a beautiful natural self-tan.

What is DHA?
DHA (dihydroxyacetone) is the active ingredient used in sunless tanning products. It is a sugar molecule that reacts to the amino acids or proteins on the surface of the skin. The level of DHA controls how dark and natural the color looks. Too much DHA can lead to a "rusty", irregular look and too little DHA results in an ineffective tan that fades too quickly. XEN-TAN uses a high level of DHA that is carefully formulated for a dark, natural tan, but also balanced with moisturizing ingredients to guarantee a smooth, streak-free application.
