No. 12 hydrates your skin without greasing or leaving any oily residue, it’s non-comedogenic and free of endocrine disruptors.
– It has no adverse effects on the environment!
No.12 is a Face Cream with SPF 30, a gentle, high quality cream acting both as a facial moisturizer and sunscreen. It’s easy to spread and doesn’t give you the greasy, clogged feeling like other sunscreens, nor leaves any cast – or fluff when you start with your make-up. It protects your skin from damaging UV-lights (UVA & UVB), and is a physical/mineral sunscreen, which makes the UV-rays reflect off of your skin. Mineral sunscreens don’t penetrate your skin, like chemical sunscreens do, and are thus without endocrine disruptors, meaning you safely can use it while i.e., breastfeeding. It’s made to be safe to use for long-time wear, and is particularly adapted to sensitive skins. No.12 leaves your skin with a silky touch and smoothness without oily residue. It helps to retain the elasticity of the skin and is also well adapted for anti-ageing and moisturizing processes of your skin. It assists in protecting your skin from photoaging and reduces skin irritations.
The final sensation is a velvety, lightweight and “bare skin” feel.
– It neither has any adverse effects on the environment!
Your skin gets protected against UVA & UVB-rays, in a simple moisturizing cream. It’s filled with nourishing ingredients that gives your skin a velvety, bare skin feel and glow. You won’t experience the usual clogging, oily feel that usually follows with sunscreens – and certainly no cast (or fluff!), due to its light creamy texture. It’s deliberately chosen to be a physical/mineral sunscreen, so it reflects the UV-rays and won’t harm the cells in your body – despite an +8 hour wear. Your skin’s elasticity will be increased and you’ll experience a youthful, healthy and hydrated feeling skin. Your skin will also be benefited with its protection and relief against photoaging and stress, caused by blue light. It’s a rich, nourishing and moisturizing face cream, developed for all ages and skin types, usable for people with sensitive skin and gentle towards your skin concerns.
Made with a sensitive skin in mind as default; why it’s gentle for you and your skin.
Cleanse your skin
Apply thinner products*
(Apply treatment creams (acne, rosacea, peels, etc.))
Shake gently before use
Apply gently and evenly to the skin with clean hands in circular motions
Apply every morning as the last thing in your skincare routine
* PRO TIP: Always think of applying the thinner products beforehand (cleanser, toners, serums, moisturizers, etc.), and finish off with ‘sealing’ the nourishing products you’ve just applied, and protecting your face with the thicker (moisturizer/SPF) face cream.
– FYI: If you want a youthful looking skin and decrease wrinkles and premature skin; then sunscreen is important all year round. UVA rays, which cause premature aging and wrinkles, are present all year and are those that go through windows, skies, etc. – so keep applying your SPF.
Coco Caprylate/Caprate has excellent biocompatibility with the human body; making it suitable for daily products for sensitive skins with dryness problems and baby products. Caprate optimizes the hydration of your skin, stabilizes the packaging of the skin’s lipids, reducing the space between them to improve the skin barrier water holding capacity – so your skin gets hydrated in the most elegant way. Its penetration instead of evaporation helps to protect the skin, providing natural hydration by reinforcing the natural skin lipid barrier. Results show that Coco Caprylate/Caprate is an excellent emollient that enhances skin hydration for leave-on skincare, i.e., face creams with SPF. It keeps hydration in your skin, trapping water in the uppermost layers of the skin, and protecting your skin against moisture loss.
Diethylamino Hydroxybenzoyl Hexyl Benzoate is an organic compound used to absorb and give protection against the whole UVA-range. It has an excellent safety profile and is well tolerated even by ultra-sensitive skin. It also biodegrades readily and has no adverse effects on the environment. Most products that include sun filters that are produced in the US and/or EU are endocrine disruptors. That is not the case with sun filters in Boë products and you can use our products safely and even when pregnant and breastfeeding.
Diethylhexyl Butamido Triazone is a broad spectrum UV absorber, absorbing UVB and UVA rays. UV radiation is an important cause of sunburn, premature aging of the skin, melanoma, and other forms of skin cancer. Diethylhexyl Butamido Triazone is an organic, oil-soluble sun filter that absorbs UVB radiation. Requires only very small concentrations to achieve a high SPF. It rarely leads to irritation, why it doesn’t cause allergic reactions. There’s no evidence of any (geno)toxic or carcinogenic effect. Diethylhexyl Butamido Triazone is also super photostable, since it only loses 10% of its SPF protection abilities in 25 hours, where 2 hours already counts as ‘photostable’.
Glyceryl Glucoside (Glycoin) is a 100% natural, multifunctional, anti-aging, and cell-boosting active ingredient, that reactivates the power of youth in tired, stressed, and mature skin. Glycoin is an extremolyte, a stress protection molecule, that is produced naturally by the African resurrection plant, Myrothamnus Flabellifolia. Myrothamnus Flabellifolia grows in deserts and survives without rain. It looks withered and dead, but, as soon as it rains the plant blooms – thanks to Glycoin. These remarkable properties can be transferred to (your) skin.
Glycerin is a natural component in healthy skin. When used in skincare, it’s typically derived from vegetable fats (like coconut oil, soy or palm) or produced synthetically. The glycerin used by Boë and in our products, is found and derived from non GMO Soy Oil – which makes it 100% natural and vegan. Glycerin is a hygroscopic ingredient, meaning it attracts the moisture from the air surrounding us, and helps us to contain it in our skin. Glycerin imitates the skin’s natural moisturizing factors in the skin’s fat layer, making it crucial for the skin’s ability to tie water in the superior skin layer. Besides being an eminent humectant, glycerin protects against environmental sources of skin irritation. It strengthens the precious skin barriers, besides helping other ingredients to penetrate the skin better. Glycerin helps to maintain a healthy and good moisture balance in your skin, and when the moisture balance is ‘normal’ your skin will feel soft, smooth and elastic, making it receptive to skincare and other products. Lastly, it aids in improving the skin’s youthful look.
