Codex is a biotech company dedicated to providing products with clinically proven skin care benefits. The products in this launch are said to support the microbiome and protect the skin’s barrier against reactive oxidative stress. 

The Antü Brightening Moisturizer is designed to help UV recovery while reducing the appearance of pores, and the Antü Brightening Night Cream is meant to soften the skin as well as improve texture. Each product includes AntüComplex, a protective formula made from three Patagonian plants (Matico, Maqui and Murtilla) and hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid to soothe irritation and reduce inflammation. This formula is reportedly clinically proven to alleviate damage caused by UV light exposure and to refine the appearance of pores.

The brightening moisturizer also restores hydration and protects the skin barrier against exposure to particulate matter. Key ingredients include murumuru to restore skin moisture; camapu to alleviate redness and protect against infrared damage; and entadine to protect against environmental stressors. The Antü Brightening Moisturizer is designed for all skin types including dull, dry or uneven skin.

The Antü Brightening Night Cream is rich and nourishing, to restore the skin barrier, and additionally helps to defend against exposure to particulate matter. The cream re-hydrates skin and is reportedly clinically proven to improve skin tone uniformity and softness with the AntüComplex formula. Other key ingredients include Black Jack flower, which mimics retinoids to improve elasticity and firmness; daisy, to brighten and revitalize; and cupuaçu butter, to protect the skin barrier and reduce trans-epidermal water loss.

Codex Beauty Labs products are sustainably manufactured in an automated cosmetic cGMP (ISO22716) manufacturing facility.
