Data Backed Results from the Lab
Preservative Efficacy Testing
The efficacy of the antimicrobial activity of the preservative in a formulation is tested by challenging the formulation with known bacteria, yeast and fungi.
These tests determine the shelf life of products and demonstrate how product quality varies with time and with different environmental factors, such as temperature and humidity. Product attributes such as color, phase separation, odor, extrusion, weight loss, pH, viscosity, density and microbial quality are tested over time.
Batch Quality Testing
Defined parameters (e.g., pH, viscosity, density, color, etc) are measured for each production batch to ensure consistency and functionality.
HRIPT (Human Repeat Insult Patch Test) Testing
This test determines the potential for irritation, sensitization and allergic contact of the product. It also confirms that repeated applications of the cosmetic product under maximized conditions do not induce delayed contact allergy reactions.
Product Efficacy Testing
These tests verify a product‘s intended purpose by quantifying its effects on the skin of human subjects. Efficacy testing is crucial to scientifically substantiating product claims with state-of-the-art measurement techniques.

Sustainability, Down to a Science
At Codex Beauty Labs, we are committed to environmental and social stewardship. From setting goals to have zero carbon footprint by 2025, to supporting the Nagoya protocol and exercising Fair Trade, we are integrating sustainability principles into all core areas of our business.
Reduced Carbon Footprint
We source as ingredients that are biotech-manufactured as possible, as these reduce carbon footprint. We utilize sugarcane-based polyethylene (green PE) tubes for our cream/gel products, and we are developing green PE/PCR bottles for our liquid products. We will implement recycling programs to minimize ocean plastic.
We work with local ethnobotanists and indigenous peoples. We consider everything from the bio-availability of a plant species, the ecological impact of organic/biodynamic farming to the local biome, and the indigenous community. Our suppliers integrate the full production chain: from the biomass harvest in the native ecosystem/farm through extraction, concentration or fermentation of the bio-active.
Fair Trade Sourcing
We support fair trade when we work with local growers and indigenous harvesters. We pay fair market prices to local communities. We are fully support the Nagoya protocol and invest in building infrastructure for better working conditions, access to healthcare, and education.
