Cleanse your skin

(Apply treatment creams (acne, rosacea, peels, etc.))
Apply moisturizer/SPF (to lock in the active ingredients)
Wash your hands to avoid colored palms
Depending on your routines, other self tanners and wish for tan, apply daily, bi-daily or every third day, varying between No.16 and No.17.
* PRO TIP: Always apply the thinner products first (cleanser, toners, serums, creams, etc.), and finish off with ‘sealing’ the nourishing products you’ve just applied, and protect your face with the thicker (moisturizer/SPF) product.
Sodium hyaluronate (SH) is the salt form of the skin-replenishing hyaluronic acid (HA), and shares the same benefits, including its ability to retain moisture. In its form, 1 gram (0.03 fl.oz.) HA can retain up to 6 liters (203 fl.oz.), though when used on the skin, it can’t hold that much. But sodium hyaluronate can as a smart ingredient help the skin maintain its water balance – which gives you a healthy, youthful and plumped look. Sodium hyaluronate is a humectant (moisture-binding), but is also considered a postbiotic, meaning it helps nourishing and maintaining the skin’s microbiome. The main difference between HA and SH, is that the skin is better at absorbing SH.
Overall; sodium hyaluronate is a humectant and antioxidant that is excellent in replenishing the skin and moisture-binding. It keeps your skin looking plumped, healthy and hydrated. It benefits your skin by its abilities in soothing, anti-aging and hydration.
Ascorbyl Glucoside is a form of vitamin C; an antioxidant and skin brightener (in terms of helping to fade brown spots (hyper-pigmentation) caused by sun damage or post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation). Our bodies don’t naturally produce vitamin C, and it’s a tricky ingredient that is both unstable, hard to formulate, and also has difficulties in penetrating the skin. This is why we use Ascorbyl Glucoside, which have shown to be one of the best derivatives of vitamin C. On the contrary to vitamin C, it’s stable, easy to formulate and has in in-vitro studies shown no troubles with penetrating the skin, which is important in terms of letting the active anti-aging ingredients do their job. In-vitro studies also show that Ascorbyl Glucoside converts into vitamin C, when absorbed by the skin – at the same time it also shows the three anti-aging benefits that pure vitamin C also does (antioxidant protection + collagen boosting + fading hyper-pigmentation). Ascorbyl Glucoside thus boosts the skin’s own collagen production, and used under sunscreen, it boosts both the UV- and photoprotection.
Dihydroxyacetone, or DHA, a colorless sugar compound that’s used in most self-tanners. It can be derived synthetically, or from sugar beets and canes. When DHA interacts with the amino acids in the proteins of the skin cells, the production of melanoids – brown pigments – happens, which creates a tanned appearance.
This reaction only occurs in the top layer of the skin, which is why self tanners aren’t permanent. At Boë we use the smallest possible particles that go deeper in the skin, compared to other self tan products. This is why the tan from Boë’s products have a long lasting natural tan color.
DHA is generally well-tolerated by most people, though it can cause both contact dermatitis (rashes, irritation, redness) as well as an allergy. Though, we have never experienced any customers getting allergic reactions, alone from Boë’s products.
Allantoin is naturally found in sugar plants, but when used in skincare, it is typically produced in a lab. It’s an active ingredient which is anti-irritant and wound-healing. Allantoin has mild keratolytic properties, which gives you a soft skin upon application. It’s also a moisturizing agent that has a calming effect on the skin, and supports the natural cell division. It’s an ingredient that is suitable and beneficial for all skin types. Allantoin doesn’t clog your pores, it creates balance in the ‘grease production’ in your skin and is also an ideal humidifier for more greasy and acne-prone skin. Allantoin is especially beneficial for people with sensitive and irritated skin, who also has a tendency to redness, as it has a calming effect on the skin.
Anthemis Nobilis Flower Water is a plant extract and antioxidant, with soothing and anti-aging abilities. The Anthemis Nobilis flower is also known as the chamomile flower. The ingredient has significant skin soothing and anti-aging abilities, besides an ability to restore the skin and help it to relax and refresh.
