We are Katharina and Laura - the founders of TheCode Cosmetics.

Beauty and especially skincare has always played a crucial role in our everyday life and over the years it developed into a real passion. We constantly exchanged tips and recommendations of the newest products, upcoming trends and innovative ingredients. Because our goal has always been the same: healthy, radiant and beautiful skin. 

At first glance, it may appear that we quite look alike. However, we quickly realized that if we take a closer look at our skin, it’s conditions and needs - the realization quickly came - we have completely different skin types and thus fundamentally different needs when it comes to skincare.

So we continued to dig deeper and began a more in-depth research on what it is that our skin needs in order to finally crack the code to beautiful skin. We discovered that in addition to using suitable products for each of us, a crucial factor on the way to achieve healthy and beautiful skin is the right combination of products and ingredients within one's skincare routine. To continue, we were looking for high-quality products, with clean and predominantly natural formulations. Yet it was paramount for us to find products that can deliver real visible results. It was not long until we realized, what we were looking for, does not exist...

And that's how TheCode Cosmetics was born.

TheCode Cosmetics combines nature with innovation & science, in order to provide you with a fully customized skincare routine. To compile your personalized skincare-set we use artificial intelligence built around a complex algorithm that will deliver you a perfectly matching skincare routine for your individual skin type and its specific needs. Thus, TheCode Cosmetics finally fulfills our desire for each of us to find their perfect skincare routine. 

The future of Skincare, from us to you!

TheCharity - TheCode supports Vucjak Shelter

With every sale of one of our Skincare-Sets we donate to an animal shelter in Serbia.

It has always been one of our drivers to give back, especially to the most vulnerable and to do good with our own start-up. Thus, we made it part of our mission to donate 1€ from every sale of one of our skincare-sets to the Vucjak Shelter in Serbia.

Doing good together

TheCode Cosmetics

Sustainability is not just about the primary carbon footprint, we go further!

At TheCode Cosmetics sustainability particularly means conscious consumption of high-quality products, in contrast to uncontrolled consumerism and a throwaway society. Regional sourcing, raw materials of organic quality as well as highly effective ingredients are deeply rooted in our cleanical (clean + clinically proven) product approach. With TheCode Cosmetics, we want to achieve, that when it comes to skincare, our customers can enjoy true quality based on real values. ​​In addition, we strive to make our supply chain and product lifecycle as sustainable as possible. We always work on integrating more sustainable processes into our work. Transparency, honesty and the highest quality are fundamental pillars for us at TheCode Cosmetics. 

TheScience - Nature meets Innovation

What makes our products stand out? It is our three-dimensional approach of Clean x Clinical x Smart!
  • CLEAN - the use of the best and natural ingredients in organic quality,

  • CLINICAL - paired with highly effective active ingredients for visible results,

  • SMART - all combined with the power of smart science and artificial intelligence.

CLEAN - natural ingredients

We use All the best organic plant-based ingredients in our formulations.
TheCode Cosmetics takes a natural cosmetic approach. We use up to 98% ingredients of natural origin as well as raw materials from controlled organic cultivation.
All TheCode products are 100% vegan and cruelty-free! We are committed to never sell our products in countries where animal testing is mandatory.
We have chosen to use Pentylene Glycol instead of Phenoxyethanol. Pentylene Glycol is a breakthrough plant-based preservation. The natural substance originates from the juice of the sugar beet. It is primarily a humectant and has a preservative effect as a positive side effect. Therefore, all our products are considered preservative-free. Pentylene Glycol is about 8 times more expensive than Phenoxyethanol - which is probably the very reason why many brands still prefer Phenoxyethanol.
Behind this term is a group of ingredients that we, after intensive scientific research, blacklisted and all TheCode products are free of. The 6 P's: Phenoxyethanol (preservatives) Parabens (preservatives) Paraffins (petroleum distillates) PEGs (emulsifiers) Perfume (and other fragrances) Phthalates (emollients)

Our products are also free of: silicones, sulfates, mineral oil, preservatives, dyes, fragrances, microplastics, animal ingredients, hormonally active raw materials.

CLINICAL - potent ingredients

Highly effective & active ingredients let you achieve visible results.
We use several high-tech ingredients with proven efficacy, such as a potent peptide ingredient modeled after paralyzing snake venom. Studies have confirmed that SYN®-AKE, when used early, helps delay the appearance of wrinkles and has an age-stopping effect. Awarded the Swiss Technology Award based on a patented mechanism. Naturally vegan & synthetically produced.
The efficacy of our plant-based antimicrobial ingredient Pentylene Glycol passed the safety evaluation of experts. This means we can do without any conventional preservatives, which have no benefit to the skin - quite the opposite.
These tests determine the shelf life of products and show how product quality changes over time and in response to various environmental factors such as temperature and humidity. Product characteristics such as color, phase separation, odor, weight loss, pH, viscosity, density and microbial quality were tested and successfully passed.
Our airless dispensers ensure the effectiveness of the valuable ingredients. Contact with oxygen and light can lead to loss of efficacy for certain active ingredients. Our opaque and airtight dispensers prevent this and also ensure more hygienic application as well as longer shelf life.

SMART - artificial intelligence

All this is combined with the possibilities of technologies and artificial intelligence.
Artificial intelligence uses computers and machines to mimic the problem-solving and decision-making abilities of the human brain by drawing logical conclusions and selecting relevant details. We use this advanced technology to select the skincare that really suits you.
Using your answers from our TheQuiz, our database instantly searches through this wealth of information to select the best products for your skin. That means no more wasting time and money trying products that may or may not work.
Everyone is exposed to thousands of products and ingredients - it's no wonder 80% are overwhelmed with choosing the right products, and one in two combine products that can negatively impact their skin. Our technology takes this into account and creates your personal skincare set with the ideal combination of ingredients for maximum effectiveness.
