A review of Atopis – New Zealand’s natural skincare

October 24, 2018

Atopis New Zealand Natural Skincare

New Zealand is known for natural beauty, fresh springs and incredible botanicals. Therefore it is no wonder that this fresh, nourishing land is the perfect place to develop skincare . Atopis Skincare, a New Zealand clinically trialled organic brand uses fresh and natural ingredients to slow down signs of ageing and radiate the skin.

Research-based skincare

We see a lot of skincare products with a lot of promises. However few companies back it up with evidence and scientific research. Atopis underwent two eczema clinical trials in the USA and in New Zealand. These trials provided evidence that these products help manage atopic skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and acne.

The study shows that twice a day application was successful with no adverse events reported. *source – International Journal of Phytocosmetics and Natural Ingredients

Amongst this research, Atopis founder Dr Iona Weir discovered that cell death in plants could be reversed. So, this unlocked the healing powers of nature and the Atopis anti-ageing range was born.

Here are the two products I can’t get enough of:

Revitilizing Toner – $49

What happens when you infuse the anti-inflammatory orange peel extract into soothing aloe vera gel? How about when you also add witch hazel, hydrating watermelon, collagen enhancing gold kiwi, anti-bacterial manuka, and healing harakeke gel? You get skin protecting, Revitilizing Toner by Atopis!

This skin treating toner prepares the skin to enhance the effectiveness of your moisturiser. Toners work by balancing out the skin’s environment. They reduce bad bacteria and promote good bacteria for healthy, well-balanced skin. I love to apply this to the face, neck and décolletage as a mist or on a cotton pad, morning and night before a moisturiser. This toner promises to:

  • Reduce Redness – For sun damaged skin
  • Protect the skin – The toner works in synergy with Atopis Anti-Aging Cream to penetrate and work beneath the surface to heal and protect the skin.
  • Helps to tackle acne – Using the toner with either Radiant Balance or Acne Prone Skin Cream will clear and heal the skin sooner and more effectively.
Atopis Anti-Ageing Cream – $89Atopis New Zealand Natural Skincare

What happens to our skin as we age? Firstly, our hormone levels change, our collagen production declines so our skin appears less plump. The decline in collagen causes lines and wrinkles to form, and the skin to become thin and dull.

The Atopis Anti-Aging Cream has been proven to stimulate collagen production to plump the skin and reduce wrinkles, restoring a healthy youthful glow. The cream smells incredible, leaves the skin feeling super smooth and brings brightness to the complexion. I love to use this cream day and night, across my face, neck and décolletage. The cream promises to:

  • Hydrate – using a scientifically formulated blend of peptides, lipids, and mitochondrial boosting antioxidants work at the cellular level to hydrate skin.
  • Repairs Skin – reduces redness from sun damage on face and décolletage and fades age spots, evening skin tone.
  • Helps Plump Skin And Reduce Wrinkles – stimulates collagen production and restores epidermal function to soften lines and wrinkles.

Best of all, I just can’t get over how smooth and soft my skin feels after using these products. As mentioned, I use them morning and night. The toner and the anti-ageing cream create a fantastic base for applying makeup and a healing layer before sleep.
