The No.3 Tan Lotion is an easy to use, quick-drying, hydrating, and gradual self tan lotion. No.3 is gentle and efficient at the same time, leaving you with a deep, golden glow, and smooth skin.
No.3 is free of endocrine disruptors, allergens, and non-comedogenic. It can be used on both face and body.
The No.3 Tan Lotion was developed to gently give you a natural, long lasting, even tan, that gives your skin a silky feeling and increased elasticity. It’s based on a clean skincare formula, to be as gentle, natural and effective at the same time. The formula is packed with some of the best active ingredients that makes it serve multiple purposes, incl. blue light protection and increased collagen production. It’s a quick drying product that gives you an immediate freshness, followed by an impressing natural deep tan, developing over the following hours of application. The tan is long lasting and easy to maintain. No.3 is, as all of our products, fragrance, oil and paraben free, leaving you with a healthy, soft skin, and no oily residue or clogged pores – letting your skin breathe.
The No.3 Tan Lotion provides you with a naturally made, looking tan color that’s created from the deeper layers of your skin, making it longer lasting. It’s made of a fast drying, no transfer formula, which makes it easy to fit into your bi-daily morning/evening routine. Despite being made on a moisturizing formula, it dries quickly and you can resume your day within a couple of minutes. The lotion’s texture makes it easy to apply, and the very efficient tanning process it activates makes it easy for you to get an even tan. The product provides your skin with a silky and smooth feeling, while increasing your skin’s elasticity and revitalizing aged skin cells. The active ingredients in the formula also stimulate sluggish cell vitality, metabolism, and increases the collagen production in aged skin cells. It increases your skin’s thickness and hydration, while boosting tissue repairing and cell renewal. All of our products, including No.3, are fragrance free, without allergens and endocrine disruptors – they are made with a sensitive skin in mind as default, so it’s gentle for you and your skin. It’s also safe for you to use both while pregnant and breastfeeding.

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.
Erythrulose is a yellow to reddish sugar found in red berries, most commonly raspberries. Like DHA, it tans the skin due to a reaction with the amino acids (proteins) in the skin’s dead surface layer, producing a brownish tint. Like DHA, Erythrulose neither uses the skin’s normal pigmentation or UV-exposure to produce the tan coloration. But rather works as a chemical reaction on the skin’s dead surface cell layer and changes the skin cells to a brownish tone. At Boë we blend Erythrulose with DHA – to help the tan tone appear ‘richer’, deeper, and more even. The combination of Erythrulose and DHA gives you a more ‘natural’ look, as Erythrulose has a warmer/darker tone than the more orangey-colored DHA. Though this can vary depending on the individual, as each person’s unique skin may differ.
Hydrogenated Ethylhexyl Olivate is a unique sensorial agent that can be used as a vegetable-based alternative to silicone. The Hydrogenated Ethylhexyl Olivate is a highly stable transparent nourishing fluid oil, with low odor. It provides a long-lasting silky feel that creates a satin effect and smoothness on your skin, without oily residue or greasiness. As a cosmetic emollient of universal use, it restores suppleness and elasticity to the skin.
Butyrospermum Parkii Butter, better known as Shea Butter. Rich in antioxidants, including quercetin, epicatechin gallate, gallocatechin, epigallocatechin, as well as skin-replenishing fatty acids (stearic and linoleic), Shea Butter has emollient properties for dry skin. The butter is protective and inhibits the formation of free radicals. It’s well adapted for the anti-ageing processes, as it helps to retain the elasticity due to its combination of triglycerides and unsaponifiable fraction.
The refined Shea Butter we use comes from Burkina Faso, in West Africa, and our partners are directly socially responsible for the support of the local community in the trade of Shea.
Sodium PCA, is a natural humectant derived from L-Glutamic acid. It’s known to be abundant in human skin as a component of NMF (Natural Moisturizing Factor), and helps your skin and hair to stay fresh-looking.
