  • 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.

Skin Soother

[Apa] + [Apb]

  • Presentation

    Soothes sensitive skin and reinforces its tolerance threshold for inflammatory reactions.

  • Mechanisms of action

    --> Prevents skin irritation caused by harsh physical and chemical agents.

    --> Improves skin hydratation (strengthens skin structure).
    --> Restores hydrolipid film (reinforces skin's role as barrier). 
    --> Reduces inflammatory process (irritation and redness). 
    --> Reduces skin's reactivity.
    --> Reduces neurosensitivity (sensation of discomfort). Increases skin's pain threshold.
  • Clinical results

    [Apa] :  Amino acids extracted from oats and enriched with potassium and magnesium

    • -90% prickling sensations after 1 minute. 
    • +25% reduction in solar erythema. 
    • +7,4 % reduction in physical erythema.
    • +24 % hydratation 1,5 hour after application. 


    [Apb] :  Tetrapeptide developed by neurocosmetics research, capable of reducing the response of neurons sensitive to external stimuli, thereby relieving sensations of pain and discomfort.

    • Numerous in-vitro and in-vivo tests have demonstrated the active ingredient’s effectiveness in soothing and reducing pain.

    Sensitive and hypersensitive skin reacts strongly to various factors generally withstood and tolerated by normal skin. Sensitive and intolerant skin regularly experiences sensations of heat, prickling or tightness. Hypersensitivity is related to three dysfunctions: changes in the cutaneous barrier, reduced cohesion between skin cells, and weakening of the junction between the dermis and epidermis. As a result, the skin becomes more permeable, allowing aggressive and irritating substances to enter. Finally, one additional – sensory – element must be taken into account: the skin’s reduced tolerance threshold. The weaker the skin’s tolerance, the more sensitive it becomes.  To relieve and reduce skin hypersensitivity, all of these aspects must be treated.
