1,3-Dihydroxyacetone (also known as DHA) is a simple carbohydrate that is primarily used as an ingredient in sunless tanning products. It is often derived from plant sources such as sugar beets and sugar cane, by the fermentation of glycerin.

1,3-Dihydroxyacetone may be prepared, along with glyceraldehyde, by the mild oxidation of glycerol, for example with hydrogen peroxide and a ferrous salt as catalyst.

1,3-Dihydroxyacetone was first recognized as a skin coloring agent in the 1920s, by German scientists.

Additional research studied DHA's skin coloring effect in relation to treatment for patients suffering from vitiligo.This skin browning effect is non-toxic, and similar to the Maillard reaction.
