Spec-Chem Industry Inc. 南京斯拜科生化实业有限公司 makes their documentation available in the regions indicated below:

L-Erythrulose (Erythrulose,Tanbest™ DHB) is used in some self-tanning cosmetics. It can be combined with dihydroxyacetone (DHA). This nontoxic reaction produces a temporary browning effect similar to the Maillard reaction. This is not a stain or dye, but rather a chemical reaction that produces a color change on all treated skin. The brown color is comparable to the appearance of a UV-based suntan. The tan appearance lasts from two to ten days, depending on application type and skin condition.
