Besides glycerol, other solutes pass the PfAQP pore, i.e., ammonia, urea, polyols up to five carbon atoms, arsenite, and the glycolysis-related carbonyl compounds methylglyoxal or dihydroxyacetone (Hansen et al., 2002; Zeuthen et al., 2006; Pavlovic-Djuranovic et al., 2006).
glyceraldehydes-3 phosphate and dihydroxyacetone phosphate are produced excessively.
The cornoid lamellae may be stained and accentuated by sunless tanning lotions containing dihydroxyacetone.
After that, the glycerin is converted into glycerol-3-phosphate by glycerol kinase, and then it is oxidized to dihydroxyacetone phosphate on the outer face of the inner mitochondrial membrane and goes to the glycolytic pathway for energy production (Robergs & Griffin, 1998).
Glycerol was then phosphorylated into glycerol-3-phophate and oxidized in dihydroxyacetone phosphate and hydrogen peroxide.
TIM is a key enzyme in glycolysis catalyzing the conversion of dihydroxyacetone phosphate to glyceraldehyde3-phosphate [7].

Almost all sunless tanners contain Dihydroxyacetone (DHA).
In the presence of ATP and glycerol kinase, glycerol is converted to glycerol-3-phosphate, which is then oxidized by glycerol-3-phosphate oxidase to yield [H.sub.2][0.sub.2] and dihydroxyacetone phosphate in the presence of [0.sub.2].
