Replenish your skin with the Codex Beauty Antu Refreshing Gel Cleanser. Made with the proprietary M3 formula, this gel cleanser gently cleanses without stripping moisture. Supplementary to this, biotech actives protect the skin barrier and gently but effectively remove particulate matter pollutants.

What's Inside the Codex Antu Refreshing Gel Cleanser?

Included in this clarifying gel cleanser from Codex Beauty Labs, is a blend of patented M3, soap bark extract and sodium cocoyl glutamate.

Matico, maqui, and murtilla blend together to create M3 antioxidants. Antioxidants are significant in skin care because they protect the skin from free radical damage. This in turn prevents premature skin aging. Meanwhile, soap bark extract and sodium cocoyl glutamate lightly cleanse to maintain moisture levels.

Protecting Your Skin Barrier

Cleansers that contain harsh ingredients often damage the skin's moisture barrier. When this happens, your skin is more prone to harm from bacteria, pollutants, environmental aggressors, and other irritants. To put it simply, the moisture barrier is responsible for keeping in the good things, while keeping the bad things out. Therefore, it's essential to ensure your skincare products are not overly stripping or drying.

The Codex Antu Refreshing Gel Cleanser is effective due to its ability to hydrate skin and deeply cleanse, all while protecting the moisture barrier. Furthermore, because of its hydrating ingredients and natural antibacterial properties, it's also the best cleanser for dry skin and sensitivity.

This gentle, hydrating cleanser is a much-needed staple in your skincare routine. The Codex Antu Refreshing Gel Cleanser is suitable for daily use, it foams well and rinses easily, revealing soft and supple skin.

The Codex Antu Refreshing Gel Cleanser gently cleans the skin and controls oil production, without stripping the skin of its natural oils. Additionally, the cleanser uses mild natural surfactants, quillay, and sodium cocoyl glutamate, to effectively clean and balance the skin.

AntuComplex (M3 antioxidant & hydrolysed hyaluronic acid) provides an antioxidant shield and relief of redness.

The Antu Gel Cleanser is MyMicrobiome certified, but also has a significant cleansing capacity with the ability to remove PM2.5 pollution. Furthermore, it is clinically proven to:

  • Improve oiliness by 30%
  • Decrease skin flaking by 15%
  • Reduce transepidermal water loss by 14% in 4 weeks

Is The Codex Gel Cleanser Vegan And Cruelty-Free?

Yes, all Codex Beauty products, including the Antu Refreshing Gel Cleanser, are certified vegan by The Vegan Society and certified cruelty free by Cruelty Free International under The Leaping Bunny Program.

Should Cleanser Be Used In The Morning Or Night?

Cleansers, including the Codex Gel Cleanser, should be used both in the morning and at night.

Bacteria can accumulate throughout the night and any leftover traces of night cream should also be removed by cleansing in the morning. It's also essential to use a cleanser, such as the Codex Gel Cleanser, in the evening as the skin accumulates toxins, excess oil and excess makeup. Failure to properly remove these can lead to breakouts, inflammation and acne.
