Dihydroxyacetone, or DHA, is 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. We have though 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.
It works in much the same manner as DHA. None of the ingredients use 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.

Why it's special
No.5 Tan Mousse is formulated with Sodium PCA that is a natural humectant derived from L-Glutamic acid. Known to be abundant in the human skin as a Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF), this humectant helps you keep your skin fresh-looking.
No.5 is formulated with Glycoin that 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.
The combination of Sodium PCA, Erythrulose, DHA and Glycoin will give you a natural tan, a smooth, silky skin and instant hydration. The elasticity of your skin will increase, and your skin cells are protected against harmful UV. The formula will also decrease the skin’s stress caused by blue light and pollution. It’ll lead to stimulation of cell vitality, tissue repairing and cell renewal, resulting in a younger looking skin.
Beautiful Skin for Life!
