The Problem:
The natural skin lipid structure is responsible for protecting the skin against external aggressors while simultaneously sealing in hydration for proper moisture levels. When this lipid structure becomes compromised due to genetics, illness, or external damage - the skin is unable to properly protect and hydrate itself. The result? Dry, sensitive and unhealthy skin.

Our Solution:
If you look at our formula under a microscope, you would see a special cross pattern that is identical to the pattern of the natural lipid layer of healthy skin. That’s our patented multi-lamellar emulsion technology (MLE) – an ingredient designed to flawlessly mimic healthy skin’s natural lamellar lipid.

The Magic of MLE:
Once applied, our ingredient’s cross pattern actually takes the place of the damaged lipid layer “tricking” the skin into thinking the healthy lipid layer has been naturally restored. This begins the natural process of your skin self protecting and hydrating - resulting in clearer, healthier, brighter skin.

ATOPALM is one of the very few brands that actually works without causing extra irritation! This is because of MLE’s plant-derived fatty acids, ceramides and cholesterol, which the body recognizes as its own. On top of helping the skin protect and hydrate itself once again, MLE also aids dry, sensitive skin that is mild and safe enough for babies but powerful and effective for even the most severe skin conditions.
