Decode your beauty formula
and embrace your personal needs
  • The Decoder by CODAGE is a series of information sheets that allow you to better diagnose your needs, understand your skin’s metabolism and, above all, get to know every active ingredient in the collection.

    An intelligent approach to active cosmetics that allows you to truly understand your skin and take good care of it, effectively and simply…

  • Nutri-Elements are the foundation of the CODAGE visual identity, and are «cocktail» of an average of 3 active ingredients with a synergistic action.
    Most Nutri-Elements are available in 3 concentrations (3-max, 2-med, 1-min) to ensure a perfectly calibrated formula.

    Given specific skin needs, nutri-elements are dosed and assembled to form a unique «codage» and to reveal the product formula.
    CODAGE continually updates the composition of its Nutri-Elements based on research to offer the best in innovative active cosmetics.

Hi
Cold protection

[Hi]

  • Presentation

    Preserves the skin’s ability to stay hydrated and regenerate when exposed to cold.

  • Mechanisms of action

    --> Helps skin exposed to extreme cold maintain its level of hydratation. 

    --> Strenghtens the skin's integrity and reduce wrinkles through collagen and elastin synthesis. 
    --> Regenerates and heals skin damages by cold (improved fibroblast adhesion and faster cell growth). 
  • Clinical results

    [Hi] : Extract of Pseudoalteromonas Antarctica NF3, a bacterium that develops on glaciers in Antarctica. During growth, it synthesises a cryoprotective glycoprotein that defends it against frost in extremely cold conditions.


    Proven in-vitro efficacy in very cold conditions:

    • +125% fibroblast adhesion.
    • +36% keratinocyte growth.
    • +125% collagen I, +81% collagen IV and +31% elastin.


    In vivo:

    • -44% wrinkle depth.

    When it’s cold out, the body tries to minimise heat loss to maintain its normal temperature of 37°. To do so it causes vasoconstriction (contraction of the blood vessels) in the skin to increase its internal heat. Vasoconstriction slows the blood flow, reducing supplies to the cells and endangering their survival. Furthermore, the activity of the sebaceous glands, responsible for renewing the hydrolipid film, is also slowed down. Yet this film is an essential layer of protection for our skin. As a result, in winter, without this film, the skin grows weaker and more sensitive. It becomes rough, dries out and peels.

    Consequently, when winter and cold weather are on their way, particular care should be taken to use skincare products specially formulated to protect the skin’s essential functions. More specifically, first and foremost, the skin’s hydration and integrity must be maintained against the cold. Next, its regenerative capacity and repair mechanisms need to be boosted. Thus protected, skin is ready to face the cold without fear.
