  • 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.

Dark circles

[Cna] + [Cnb] + [Cnc]

  • Presentation

    Reactivates microcirculation and reduces skin colouring to prevent and correct dark circles under the eyes.

  • Mechanisms of action

    --> Reduces pigmentation. 

    • Prevents storage of blood pigmentation and encourages their elimination. 
    • Inhibits the creation of new blood vessels. 
    • Improves microcirculation. 
     
    --> Keeps capillaries intact to prevent leakage of blood pigments. 
    • Renews the extracellular matrix. 
    • Synthesises elastin and collagen. 
     
    --> Reduces swelling around the eyes due to fatigue. 
    • Reduces local inflammation. 
    • Stimulates the elimination of fat. 
  • Clinical results

    [Cna] : An alloy of two matrikines that regulate cellular activity with two proteins (NHS and chrysin), supporting iron elimination and reinforcing capillary resistance.

    -19% blue and red colouring of under-eye circles.
     
     
    [Cnb] : Extract of green micro-algae, Chlorella vulgaris, known to strengthen the body’s natural defences.
    -11.5% skin pigmentation.
     
     
    [Cnc] : An alloy of three synergistic natural extracts that stimulate, energise and hydrate the skin around the eyes: A yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) to improve tissue respiration, a plant (Rhodiola rosea) to accelerate fat breakdown and betaine extracted from beetroot to stimulate collagen synthesis.
    In vitro:
    • Up to +45% collagen production
    • +133% oxygen consumed by fibroblasts.

    In vivo: one-month treatment on 17 women

    • Appearance of dark under-eye circles: -64%
    • Appearance of pouches under the eyes: -60%

    The skin around the eyes is very thin. It is nourished by a significant micro-network of blood vessels. Dark circles under the eyes result from a change in the capillary walls, which causes leakage of blood pigments. Furthermore, the lymphatic circulation is altered, becoming less capable of draining fluids from skin tissue.

     

    As a result, blood pigments accumulate at the level of the dermis and epidermis. These pigments eventually oxidise, giving dark under-eye circles their colour. To lessen these dark circles, several elements need to be addressed. First, the integrity of the capillaries needs to be maintained and new ones prevented from forming. Next, microcirculation should be improved to support the elimination of blood pigments and to prevent their storage in skin tissue.
