Codex Beauty Sets A New Clean Beauty Standard With The Launch of Their Bia Collection

Codex Beauty is a beauty collective that serves as both a brand and investment firm, founded by scientist and venture capitalist Barbara Paldus who traverses the globe in search of under-the-radar clean beauty brands to invest in. 

The first brand to make the stringent cut is seven-year-old Irish natural skincare line Bia started by herbal scientist Tracey Ryan. Her unique formulations showcases time-honored Irish botanicals that date back to the 8th century, with the aid of cutting-edge science to unlock new applications for present times. Every single ingredient comes from an ethical and audited supply chain and is extensively tested for its performance, and their manufacturing practices abide by international standards and regulations set out in the industry. What's more, most of their packaging is sustainably made from sugarcane-derived bioplastic and recyclable glass. 

I met with the team at the Indie Beauty Expo in August and they sent me the entire collection to review. I have been testing it over the last month as we transition from the dog days of summer to cooler fall weather, so read on for my thoughts!
