Our journey began over 20 years ago when Founder Dr. Raymond Park’s newborn son was suffering from dry, cracked, painful skin. As a concerned father who was frustrated by products that either didn’t work or had dangerous side effects - he decided to take matters into his own hands. As a research scientist, Dr. Park poured his heart into creating a hypoallergenic formula that gently and safely healed his son from persistent dermatitis.

Feeling overjoyed and relieved, Dr. Park knew he had to share his healing formula with as many people as possible. He spent five more years of devoted research to develop ATOPALM - a consumer line of products to heal and protect sensitive skin.

It was Dr. Park's passion and determination that led to the success of ATOPALM, a well-known household name voted #1 in Korea for the past decade.

In 2000, ATOPALM was one of the very first Korean brands to launch in the United States- well before K-beauty became a hot trend in America. Since then, we’ve been giving American consumers access to ancient beauty secrets of gentle and unique formulas discovered through advanced innovation.

Now, we are thrilled to announce our first EXCLUSIVE, US only launch of
REAL BARRIER - an even more advanced line of products containing our MLE technology PLUS hyaluronic acid and patented dual ceramides.
