    Atopis – Nature’s Scientific Skincare is 100% Natural, Innovative Patented Technology and Made in New Zealand.

    Our Patented Key Ingredient: Myrecil®

    Atopis Myrecil® botanical ferment is internationally patented technology U.S. Patent 9,877,991. by Dr Iona Weir. Our skin creams all contain Myrecil®, which is an innovative-patented healing botanical ferment, and consists of the all-natural ingredients below. It is created using our unique patented fermentation process.

    The process is similar to when you make kefir, where milk, grain and bacteria/yeast are combined together and fermented. This fermentation results in lactose being converted into lactic acid and thus no longer causes gut allergies in those who are lactose intolerant. Lactic acid also works as a prebiotic by promoting good gut health and gut microflora.

    In the same way, our fermentation process converts the allergenic proteins of ingredients such as bee pollen into cell-renewal peptides rendering them no longer allergenic. It also creates short-chain fatty acids from coconut myristic and lauric acids for immune function and plant enzymes to promote your skin microflora, as well as antioxidant flavonoids, vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and amino acids. We also harvest the peptides from probiotic bacteria and conjugate these to lipids to create peptilipids™, to stimulate your skins natural beneficial bacteria to restore your skin to a natural healthy balance.

    Myrecil® is a patented botanical ferment of the following ingredients:

    Coconut Oil & Water

    Coconut water contains vital minerals and vitamins as well as cytokinins which slow down the aging process by encouraging cell renewal, and antioxidants to neutralize environmental toxins. Coconut water regulates skin pH, tones and reduces pores, and is anti-inflammatory and reduces redness. Coconut oil is also anti-inflammatory with potent antimicrobial and moisturizing properties.

    Honeydew Honey

    Honeydew honey from NZ Southern Beech tree sap contains bioactive flavanoids, minerals, nutrients, vitamins and bee enzymes. It has antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and wound healing properties, and acts as a prebiotic for good bacteria on your skin as well as being an emollient. It has astringent and exfoliating properties as well as unclogging pores and reducing acne breakouts.

    Bee Pollen

    Our patented potentiated bee pollen is non-allergenic and contains phytosterols which reduce itching and inflammation, phytohormones to promote cell renewal and flavanoid antioxidants to protect against environmental damage and skin dehydration. Pollen is anti-microbial/antiviral. It is a great source of vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Stimulates blood supply to the skin. Reduces the appearance of wrinkles and speeds up the healing process. Revitalise and rejuvenate the complexion. Offers effective protection against dehydration, and has a suppressive effect on acne.

    Probiotic Peptilipids™

    Our unique patented ingredient of Myrecil®. We grow bacteria which we have isolated from the New Zealand forest. From these bacteria we harvest proteins and enzymes. The proteins are converted to peptides and bound to lipids which we have called peptilipids. There are no live bacteria present in Atopis only their enzymes and peptides which promote the growth of your skins own beneficial microflora.

    In addition to Myrecil®, our natural skin care products contain the following all natural ingredients. Learn about their beneficial properties:
