N°32 HYDRATING SELF-TANNING CREAM

Q: IS Nº32 NON-TOXIC?

A: Yes! It is a priority of ours to use only non-toxic ingredients in the products we create. Nº32 is non-toxic, vegan, cruelty-free, gluten-free, sulfate-free, paraben-free, paraffin-free, silicone-free, & phthalate-free.

Q: CAN Nº32 BE USED ON MY FACE?

A: We wouldn’t recommend using Nº32 on your face. It was designed to be a rich cream to keep your body super hydrated so it will most likely be too heavy for the skin on your face. However, Nº12 Bronzing Face Drops were designed specifically for the face so you will be able to achieve a customizable tan with skincare benefits.

Q: HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO WAIT TO SHOWER?

A: Our co-founder Sivan likes to apply Nº32 in the morning to allow her tan time to develop & set all day long. During the day she avoids water or oil exposure so no streaking occurs, and then takes a shower in the evening before bed. In an ideal world we recommend waiting 8 hours before showering to give your tan ample time to develop.

Q: HOW SOON WILL I SEE COLOR AFTER USING Nº32?

A: You will immediately see a nice healthy glow after applying. Nº32 was designed to give a natural-looking color and glow rather than intensely tanning your skin right away. You will see a subtle color develop with each application.

Q: DO I APPLY Nº32 WITH MY HANDS OR DO I NEED A MIT?

A: Nº32 should be applied with your hands. We find that using your hands creates a more even development, no streaking, and you have more control over the product. Wash hands immediately with soap and water after applying.

Q: HOW OFTEN SHOULD I APPLY Nº32?

A: The more you apply the deeper your color becomes. We recommend using it daily for 4 - 5 days for best results. Once you’ve achieved your desired color, we recommend using it every other day to maintain your color.

Q: HOW DO I PREVENT TRANSFERRING ONTO MY CLOTHING OR BEDDING?

A: After applying Nº32 wait a full 5-10 minutes before getting dressed or getting into bed so the product has time to dry. This will ensure an even development and prevent transferring.

Q: WHAT DOES Nº32 SMELL LIKE?

A: Nº32 has a light fragrance of Rosewood, which we describe as a Moroccan rose with woodsy undertones. The scent eventually fades away to nothing.

 

N°12 BRONZING FACE DROPS

Q: WHAT DOES Nº12 SMELL LIKE?

A: Nº12 is fragrance free.

Q: HOW DOES Nº12 WORK IF IT’S CLEAR?

A: We opted not to use any artificial coloring in our formula, as it does not affect or enhance your tan. One less unnecessary ingredient in our eyes!

Q: IS Nº12 NON-TOXIC?

A: Yes! Nº12 is non-toxic, vegan, cruelty-free, fragrance-free, gluten-free, silicone-free, sulfate-free, paraben-free, phthalate-free, & paraffin-free. Our goal is always to make our products as clean as possible.

Q: WHAT ARE THE SKINCARE BENEFITS OF Nº12?

A: Nº12 is loaded with antioxidants like Vitamin E and Pomegranate that protect your skin from free radicals. Is has sodium hyaluronate, which is excellent source of moisture and great for all skin types. Nº12 also uses steamed coconut water that is non-irritating and rich in nutrients for the face.

Q: CAN YOU APPLY MAKE-UP OR SPF WITH Nº12?

A: Of course! We recommend letting the product dry fully before applying your make-up (usually less than 5 minutes). SPF can be applied after your drops are applied.

Q: DOES Nº12 WORK WITH SENSITIVE OR ACNE-PRONE SKIN?

A: Everyone’s skin reacts differently to products so we recommend starting with a small amount of drop (1-2) mixed with your moisturizer before working your way up to more drops. Our co-founder Sivan has sensitive skin (especially while she is pregnant) and was able to use Nº12 without experiencing any irritation or sensitivity.

Q: WHAT STEP IN YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE TO USE Nº12?

A: Nº12 should be the last step in your skincare routine (with the exception of SPF). If you’re mixing it with moisturizer do that last. If you use the drops after applying moisturizer, have that be the last step of your routine. SPF is fine to apply over Nº12 as long as you allow your skin a few minutes to dry first.

 

Nº14 CONDITIONING BODY CREAM

Q: What does Santal smell like?

A: Warm, natural, & earthy.

Q: Can N°14 be used on the face?

A: Nº14 was formulated for the body so it is very rich and emollient. We would not recommend using it on your face.

Q: How often can I apply N°14?

A: As often as you’d like! For best results use daily after a shower when your pores are open and can absorb the cream.

Q: What are the skincare benefits of N°14?

A: This conditioning body cream is incredibly hydrating and leaves your skin with a beautiful healthy glow. It is loaded with jojoba oil, squalene, shea butter, Vitamin C, & hyaluronic acid.

Q: Does N°14 work with sensitive skin?

A: Yes, Nº14 is made of very clean ingredients and is non-toxic, vegan, cruelty-free, gluten-free, silicone-free, sulfate-free, paraben-free, phthalate-free, & paraffin-free. If you are sensitive we recommend using the Fragrance Free version of Nº14.

Q: Why is there a "Fragrance Free" Option?

A: We offer a Fragrance Free version of Nº14 for anyone who prefers to layer this product with other creams like Nº32 Hydrating Self-Tanning Cream, perfumes, or body oils. It is also a great option for anyone who is extra sensitive to fragrance. Just a matter of preference!

Q: How does N°14 work with N°32?

A: To use Nº14 + Nº32 together, we recommend applying a light layer of Nº14 to your hands, wrists, knees, ankles, and feet and then apply Nº32 over your entire body (including those areas) for easier blending. Nº14 will essentially create a barrier between your skin and Nº32 Self-Tanner. You can also use Nº14 after you’ve applied Nº32 to keep your skin hydrated, which is the key to a lasting tan!

Q: Can men use N°14?

A: Of course! All of our products were created for women and men equally.

 

Nº28 EXFOLIATING BODY POLISH

Q: How fast will N°28 fade my tan?

A: Nº28 will only slightly break down your tan, so we recommend using it when you’re ready for a fresh application of Nº32 to help remove any tan residue.

Q: Should I use N°28 every time I apply self-tanner?

A: You do not need to use Nº28 before every application of self-tanner.

Q: How strong is the Santal scent?

A: We keep all our fragrances on the lighter side, as to not overwhelm the senses.

Q: Is the exfoliator intense?

A: The texture of Nº28 was crafted to be the perfect roughness. It is not too abrasive but also doesn’t dissolve too easily. You will find it melts into the skin the more you rub it in, leaving your skin feeling super luxurious and soft.

Q: How often should I use N°28?

A: We recommend using Nº28 once to twice per week. It is recommended to use before applying a fresh application of Nº32. It can also help remove any residue self-tanner on tougher parts of your skin.

Q: Does this replace a body wash?

A: No. Nº28 is that extra step in your shower that should come last.

Q: How does this work with oily skin?

A: Nº28 works well with all skin types. The shea butter, passion fruit oil, crushed sugar, and Vitamin E all work together to hydrate and exfoliate your skin. Of course, make sure to rinse your skin well after applying.

Q: How does this work with sensitive skin?

A: Nº28 works well with all skin types. It is gentle, non-toxic, vegan, cruelty-free, gluten-free, silicone-free, sulfate-free, paraben-free, phthalate-free, & paraffin-free.

Q: Can I use N°28 to wash my face?

A: We do not recommend using Nº28 on your face, as it was formulated for the body.

Q: If I have dry skin can I use this daily?

A: If you find your skin to be extra dry, Nº28 will definitely help restore hydration. We recommend following it up with Nº14 Conditioning Body Cream to lock in hydration.
