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.

Et
Heat protection

[Et]

  • Presentation

    Preserves the skin’s ability to stay hydrated and protected when exposed to intense heat.

  • Mechanisms of action

    --> Preventative action : increases the amount of available HSP70 in cells under normal climatic conditions. 

    --> Corrective action : significantly increases synthesis of HSP70 under heat-induced stress. 
    Maintains cell size and viability to protect against heat and UV, and to improve resistance to dehydratation.
  • Clinical results

    [Et] : Tetrapeptide that stimulates synthesis of proteins of the HSP70 – or “heat shock” – family, responsible for the skin’s protective function when exposed to extreme heat.

    In vivo:
    • Cells + [Eta], exposed to UV, demonstrate a cellular viability similar to that of normal cells not exposed to UV.
    • [Eta] prevents cellular dehydration in dry conditions.
    • +28% HSP70 expression in keratinocytes not subjected to external stress.

    When it’s hot out, body temperature rises, resulting in serious dehydration. To protect itself against this, our body has developed a natural response, synthesising special proteins known as “heat shock proteins”. HSPs are “chaperone” proteins that protect proteins or eliminate cells that have been irreversibly damaged. However, the body requires a significant amount of energy to produce HSPs, which becomes problematic if heat exposure is prolonged: the body’s limits are exceeded and, exhausted, it is no longer capable of fighting off stress-induced damage. As a result, when summer is on its way or an extended trip to a tropical region planned, it’s a good idea to prepare your skin to take on the climatic stress it will encounter. 

    To prevent the metabolism from reaching a state of exhaustion and resulting damage from appearing on the skin, the body’s natural base level of HSPs should be increased in advance, and their synthesis under stressful conditions intensified. Once you’ve done this, you’ll be ready to take the heat!
