ATOPALM is the first K-Beauty skin care brand to originate in Korea that blends cutting edge Korean skin barrier science with biotech advances focused on caring for very dry and sensitive skin types. MLE (Multi-Lamellar Emulsion) formula is the Maltese skin barrier formula in the world that contains the exact bio-identical skin barrier structure of a healthy skin so that it “tricks” the compromised skin barrier into readily accepting and incorporating the healthy skin structure into itself. The MLE formula fills in the vulnerable areas of the skin barrier, reinforcing them to enable skin to draw in hydration and hold it for longer periods.
More than twenty years ago, Dr. Raymond Park, the creator of the MLE formula and ATOPALM, worked with some of the most distinguished dermatologists in the world to develop a formula that would actually work with the skin structure. He understood that when the skin barrier is compromised, the structure becomes permeable, allowing precious hydration to escape from the skin, leading to dryness, and often redness, itching and other issues. His own infant son at the time was suffering from breakouts of dry cracked skin and Dr. Park felt so confident in the safety of the new formula, he was able to heal the baby’s skin. ATOPALM with MLE was launched shortly afterward and shot to national popularity in Korea as a formula to ease babies’ skin of rashes and other irritations. The demand grew for skin barrier care for all ages and ATOPALM was quickly expanded to an entire line for all ages and for the last 14 years, ATOPALM has been the #1 Rated brand in South Korea for sensitive skin.
Now, the ATOPALM line was designed to be your everyday gentle cleanser and moisturizer for all skin types and people of all ages, from infants to elderly skin. ATOPALM is light and non-greasy, to care for the skin barrier at all stages, to keep it hydrated, soft, calm and ready to face whatever the day has in store.
