Atoplalm MLE Body Lotion

March 9, 2008 Reviewed by Marta 1 Comment


The MLE in Atopalm MLE Body Lotion stands for multi-lameller emulsion and it is supposed to be a breakthrough skin care technology. Ah, another one. It turns out that the main ingredient in Atopalm is a fairly simple one - a patented formulation of palm oil. However, it is effective.

If you look at the ingredients list, Atopalm Body Lotion contains the following tongue-twister: Myristyl/Palmityl Oxostearamide/Arachamide MEA. Derived from palm oil, this is a synthetic pseudoceramide. Ceramides make up skin's lipid composition. This is what helps skin repair its own barrier function. Deficiencies in ceramide can lead to skin disorders.

There have been published, peer-reviewed studies showing that synthetic ceramides can help the skin repair more quickly. Hence, ceramides have been added to plenty of cosmetics. Elizabeth Arden has a whole range called Ceramide. Atopalm is using a good key ingredient; its just not a breakthrough.

    <p>Resveratrol can help you to lead a long and healthy life so says Dr. Oz.</p>

    <p>Resveratrol Supplements can help you control your weight naturally<br />
    by increasing energy, reducing cravings, and limiting your appetite.<br />
    According to Wikipedia, Consumer Lab, an independent dietary <br />
    supplement and over the counter products evaluation organization, <br />
    published a report on 13 November 2007 on the popular resveratrol <br />
    supplements. The organization reported that there exists a wide range <br />
    in quality, dose, and price among the 13 resveratrol products <br />
    evaluated. The actual amount of resveratrol contained in the <br />
    different brands range from 2.2mg for Revatrol, which claimed to have <br />
    400mg of "Red Wine Grape Complex", to 500mg for Transmax, <br />
    which is consistent with the amount claimed on the product's label. <br />
    Prices per 100mg of resveratrol ranged from less than $.30 for <br />
    products made by, jarrow, and country life, to a high of <br />
    $45.27 for the Revatrol brand. None of the products tested were found <br />
    to have significant levels of heavy metals or other contaminants.<br />
