MUMBAI, India, April 2, 2024 -- CodeSkin, a highly anticipated Indian skincare brand, is set to make an impactful entry into the industry with the unveiling of a complete range of seven revolutionary sunscreens. Curated by founder and skincare authority Mr. Oscar Pereira, one of the pioneers of the skincare industry in the country. Mr. Oscar's legacy is inked in the trailblazing success of Cheryl's Cosmeceuticals—proudly counted among the few Indian brands to have been acquired by beauty behemoth L'Oréal in 2013. Now, CodeSkin is poised to redefine skincare standards with its commitment to Safe, Effective and Clean beauty.

"Beauty begins with honesty."

In an increasingly cluttered marketplace where ambiguous ingredients and unsubstantiated claims are peddled to unsuspecting masses, Mr. Pereira's clinical research-driven approach to developing effective skincare products appears rare. His search for a Safe, Effective and Clean sunscreen instead unveiled the alarming presence of toxic ingredients in generic skincare labels. Consumed by the belief that everyday skincare consumers deserve better, he set out to democratize the beauty landscape with CodeSkin.

To give the people a world-class product made in India.

"Why choose between what works and what is good for your skin?"

Years of uncompromising research and an unflinching commitment to perfection serve as the foundational stones of CodeSkin as its CodeSkin questions existing norms of safety, effectiveness and clean beauty with paradigm-shifting formulations.

CodeSkin sunscreens are a debut range of an eventual comprehensive skincare brand. The sunscreens use world-class ingredients rated highest on safety, effectiveness and clean beauty. The formulations have been clinically tested for effectiveness and environmental friendliness. Each of the seven sunscreens caters to a different skin type and skin concern eg: oily, normal, dry, sensitive, as well as acne prone skin.

Mr. Pereira says "CodeSkin has been developed at Effeza Labs, a state-of-the-art research and development center in Mumbai. Effeza Labs is equipped with the latest in formulation curation from sanitized, dust-free environments to advanced machines to manufacture lotions, creams, sprays and serums of the highest quality. In fact the FDA has awarded Effeza Labs with the prestigious GMP Certificate (Good Manufacturing Processes)"

"I do not hesitate to go back to the drawing board because the CodeSkin consumer should expect nothing less from its formulations. Our mission is to empower individuals to embrace their unique beauty confidently, knowing that CodeSkin products are not only safe but also effective and clean." says Pereira.
