SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA, June 07, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Dr. Byeong Deog Park has been included in Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

Dr. Park is an innovator, inventor and entrepreneur whose expertise in product development has earned him worldwide recognition over the last three decades and founded NeoPharm Co, Ltd, Korea in 2000. In particular, NeoPharm has produced four product lines that incorporate skin barrier technology, which mimics the barrier of natural skin and allows for maximum protection from outside elements including allergen and dry condition. Today, he excels as the chief science officer of NeoPharm USA (www.atopalm.com) an independent company in USA known for creating products in the skin care industry with distribution throughout North America. Previously, Dr. Park came to prominence as a senior researcher at the Aekyung Central Research Center, post doctorate associate at the department of chemistry at Rutgers University and research fellow of the Industrial Research Foundation. Other noteworthy accomplishments in Dr. Park's career include the publication of more than fifty articles covering his dermatological research and four books, including "An Atlas of Atopic Eczema and Atopic Dermatitis" and "Skin Type Solutions." In recognition of his professional excellence, Dr. Park was the recipient of a superiority prize from New Tech Korea, a Korean Excellence award and a prestigious excellence award from KOTRA, the Korean Trade Investment Promotion Agency.

Before establishing himself professionally, Dr. Park prepared for his career by pursuing his education. He attended Seoul National University, where he achieved a Bachelor of Science in chemical technology in 1988, a Master of Science in organic synthesis and chemical technology in 1990 and a doctoral degree in organic synthesis and chemical technology in 1994. To stay at the top of his field, Dr. Park is a member of the Korean Society for Skin Barrier Research, where he is tremendously involved with numerous projects in his role as vice chairman.

As he looks to the future, Dr. Park intends to continue providing top of the line dermatological research services while taking on new projects and opportunities as they arise.


Dr. Raymond Park is one of the world’s leading skin care scientists, credited with developing a formula that cured both his infant and four year old sons of acute atopic dermatitis, a formula that would go on to become the leading brand for sensitive skin in Korea and then the world. The path to his discovery was a lifetime in the making and there were dark moments when he might have turned away, never to offer his unique vision of skin care to the world. A Quest for Healing is the memoir of his path to this incredible discovery, a path fraught with the pressures of growing up in one of the most academically pressured and competitive societies in the world. Constant was his inner struggle to define himself on his own terms in the face of intense parental pressure about education, a troubled relationship with his father, men and women, and then, one of the most precious relationships of all: as a father with his sons, especially his middle son, who provokes the unforeseen depths of his own cultural conditioning, challenging him to the most difficult struggle of his life: how to be the parent he wanted to be deep in his heart.

Another Top Endorsement for the MLE Formula!

I am so excited and completely honored by an endorsement given to me this past week from one of the foremost dermatologists in the world, Dr. Leslie Baumann, MD. I have mentioned Dr. Baumann in a previous entry, or more specifically, her New York Times bestselling book, Skin Type Solutions in which she mentions my brand Atopalm with MLE as one of the world’s scientifically-proven formulas in skin care.

Dr. Baumann wrote an article for the Nov-Dec 2014 issue of Professional Beauty, a magazine out of Australia. In her article entitled, “Master Skincare Formulators” Dr. Baumann names four skin scientists as what she calls the “Julia Childs of the skincare world” or more specifically, “…the formulators and cosmetic chemists who (figuratively) put their blood, sweat and tears into years of developing products that yield efficacious results. They are often behind the scenes and their contributions are not always recognised. I refer to them as the Julia Childs of skincare, because Julia used her scientific knowledge and aesthetic sensibilities to change the world of cooking.” Dr. Baumann feels that the scientists she has chosen to endorse are ones whose skincare formulas can be trusted to give real results. I am one of the four scientists Dr. Baumann has highlighted in her article whose work she feels can truly be relied upon to deliver results.

An Atlas of Atopic Eczema

An essential companion for sufferers of atopic dermatitis and the practitioners who seek to treat them. Atopic dermatitis is a chronic skin disease which is increasing rapidly both in Korea and abroad. According to an epidemiological survey conducted in Korea in 1995, 12 to 24% of elementary school students and 6 to 8% of middle school students reported having been diagnosed with this disease. In 2000, 24.9% of elementary school students and 12.8% of middle school students had the disease. Atopic dermatitis is also a particularly troublesome chronic disease. As it is worsening, improving, and recurring, it is very important not only for the patient but also for the caregiver, the family, and the doctors who are in charge of treatment. Unproven treatment methods and folk remedies can be physically, economically and psychologically damaging, so the most scientifically-proven and accurate knowledge is needed for proper healing. This booklet has been compiled in a concise and comprehensible manner on the epidemiology, definition, pathology, etiology, clinical features, differential diagnosis and treatment of atopic dermatitis.

A comprehensive guide to understanding and treating Atopic dermatitis for both sufferers and the practitioners who treat them. Atopic dermatitis is a chronic skin disease in which the prevalence rate and the incidence rate are rapidly increasing in Korea and abroad. It is especially common in children and adolescents and tends to persist into adulthood. Because there are differences in the pattern of atopic dermatitis according to region, race, and living environment, it is necessary to understand the characteristic clinical features of the skin disorder and diagnose and treat according to the cause. Atopic dermatitis is a unique disease associated with asthma and allergic rhinitis. This book contains 1000 clinical photographs and references related to various charts and is easy to understand. It also describes the alternative medicine (folk medicine, Chinese medicine, etc.). In addition to doctors who are in charge of primary care, there is a guide to finding other practitioners who can help, including those in dermatology, pediatrics, Otorhinolaryngology, and ophthalmology.

In the field of skin care, the skin is often classified as dry, oily, complex, sensitive, normal. In this book, we classified the skin type into four types: intelligent vs. dry, sensitive vs. resistant, with pigmentation, and tenderness vs wrinkles. And classified them into 16 subtypes. We have defined 16 skin aspects and recommended features, examples, recommendations, skin care methods and skin care products. It was also described in detail, such as procedures, references, and advice by types. Complete classification and skin care guidelines are considered essential to dermatologists, skin-care workers, and cosmetic researchers as well as the general public. Find that guidance here, explained simply and comprehensively.

To be healthy, keep your skin barrier healthy first! The story of skin begins with the 'real skin barrier'

The skin barrier is the outermost layer of your skin and the first defense for your body against the harsh elements and environmental toxins.

If the skin barrier is damaged, pollutants or biological matter can easily pass through the skin, and as the water inside the skin gets out, the skin becomes easily irritated and becomes dry. If you have a normal healthy skin, you may be able to keep skin homeostasis that you can use a normal moisturizer for a while. However, for people with sensitive skin, it is necessary to use a barrier moisturizer that prevents and improves the barrier function of the skin. Considering that the barrier function of the skin is in charge of the lamellar structure present in the stratum corneum and the barrier function is deteriorated when the lamellar structure is damaged, using a product with the Maltese formula that reproduces the lamellar structure of the human skin helps the recovery of the skin barrier function, it's an effective way to do it. " Learn exactly what you need to know and what to do to restore your skin to health and beauty.

All About Skin Barrier is the perfect companion to knowing all you need to know in order to keep your skin barrier healthy and beautiful.
