The Scientific Invention inside Atopis natural skin care

By Dr Iona Weir PhD
Chief Scientist and CEO
Atopis Skin Care


In my scientific research in YEAR I discovered that kiwifruit reduces cytokine IL6 in human cells.

Cytokine IL6 is the cellular transduction molecule responsible for the inflammation that causes eczema. (Weir et al., 2008).

Using the latest biochemistry technique called lipid fractionation technology, I then spent YEAR studying, testing and observing thousands of cells, and isolated and purified the component of kiwifruit pollen that reduces cytokine IL6.

I included this compound in Myriphytase, my US patented invention which goes inside all of my skin creams. (Weir US Patent No.   ).

Myriphytase is scientifically proven to reduce this cytokine in the body and heal the cause of eczema from inside the cell.

After I invented Myriphytase, it was clinically trialed in both New Zealand and the USA and shown to help human skin including an increase in skin quality, a significant reduction in the severity of eczema symptoms, and a decrease in redness, itching, and scaling.

Like our other 100% natural ingredients, Myriphytase is not made up of mere plant extracts – our scientifically enhanced food grade compounds are clinically shown to benefit human skin.

Myriphytase is also scientifically proven to slow down the aging process by encouraging cell renewal, and contains antioxidants to neutralize environmental toxins.

Myriphytase regulates skin pH, tones and reduces pore size, and has an anti-inflammatory and redness reducing effect on skin.

It is an anti-inflammatory with potent antimicrobial and moisturizing properties.

Also inside Myriphytase are 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.

Myriphytase includes our patented potentiated bee pollen which is non-allergenic and contains phytosterols (a group of naturally occurring compounds found in plant cell membranes) that reduce itching and inflammation.

Phytohormones (naturally occurring small organic molecules that influence physiological processes in plants) are chemical messengers that coordinate cellular activities of plants and are inside Myriphytase to promote skin cell renewal and flavanoid antioxidants protect against environmental damage and skin dehydration.

Our patented pollen is anti-microbial and antiviral and a great source of vitamins, minerals and amino acids for your skin.

Myriphytase also contains Probiotic Peptilipids™

We create our unique patented ingredient Probiotic Peptilipids™ by growing 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 to create peptilipids.

There are no bacteria present in Atopis skin care, only the bacteria’s enzymes and peptides which are scientifically shown to promote the growth of your skin’s own beneficial microflora.
