Are you experiencing dehydrated, dull skin? Look no further! The Codex Antu Brightening Serum hydrates, plumps, and reverses visible signs of inflammation and aging.

What's more, it naturally brightens and evens out skin tone so is the perfect rosacea treatment.

Made with the patented AntuComplex formula, this dull skin treatment is clinically proven to improve collagen density and moisture content. Furthermore, the Codex Antu Brightening Serum features a range of plant based ingredients that brighten the skin and boost cell renewal.

What's Inside Codex Brightening Serum?

The key ingredients in this Codex Beauty Brightening Serum serum are AntuComplex, hibiscus, chermioya, and entadine extract.

AntuComplex features a blend of M3 antioxidants (matico, maqui & murtilla) and hyaluronic acid. This potent blend soothes and hydrates the skin. Hyaluronic acid benefits the skin by hydrating and increasing elasticity, while M3 antioxidants protect and brighten.

As well as this, hibiscus and cherimoya in the Brightening Serum increase the rate of skin cell turnover. This in turn promotes the shedding of dead skin cells and effectively reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Meanwhile, entadine protects the skin from free radical damage.

The ingredients included in the firming Codex Brightening Serum are suitable for dry and sensitive skin. Codex Beauty blends biotech innovations with plant biology to provide non-harmful, high quality skincare products. Furthermore, biotech ingredients protect and repair skin barrier and defend the skin from exposure to harmful pollutants.

This brightening face serum is the perfect addition for your skincare routine to add radiance and firm skin!

The clinically proven, Codex Beauty Antu Brightening Serum, re-densifies, firms, and protects the skin from pollution and premature aging. The formula contains the AntuComplex (M3 antioxidant mix & hydrolysed hyaluronic acid). This soothes and calms the skin, while supporting the activity of its natural antioxidant enzymes (catalase, glutathione, and superoxide dismutase).

Additionally, the Codex Brightening Serum complex also increases the expression of anti-inflammatory and wound healing genes, while reducing the expression of inflammatory genes.

The Antu Brightening Serum formula contains natural sources of oligopeptides that act to relax and smooth expression lines. Milk thistle ester reduces redness while entadine provides additional protection against environmental stressors. The Antu Brightening Serum has proven penetration into the epidermis after 4 hours, with an increase after 10 hours. It also has a proven film which forms to protect against pollution particles.

The Antu Brightening Serum increases hydration by 18% and decreases transepidermal water loss by 44% in 4 weeks. Furthermore, skin firmness increases by 6% at 8 weeks and collagen density increases by 4% in 4 weeks.

On the other hand, the Antu brightening collection harnesses the power of bio-actives from Patagonian plants. This protects and heals the skin. This collection includes a powerful antioxidant range and is beneficial for anti-aging. The featured AntuComplex was developed to soothe irritation and calm inflammation.

Entada Phaseoloides Bark/Seed Extract: This skincare ingredient protects the skin against environmental aggressors. It also prevents premature skin aging, by boosting the skin's natural defences and immunity.

Milk Thistle Ester: Due to its anti-inflammatory and detoxifying properties, milk thistle is particularly effective for treating sensitive skin. This includes acne, eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea. Since it also has antioxidant qualities, it works to reduce wrinkles and other signs of aging.
