7.00am May 3rd, 2007: Dublin, Ireland & Prague, Czech Republic

Alltracel Pharmaceuticals Plc., ("Alltracel", or "the Company"), (AIM:AP.L), the
Healthcare Innovation Group focused on the Wound Care, Oral Care and
Cardiovascular Health markets,  is today pleased to confirm the successful
development of Phytopeutics(TM), a range of dermal health solutions derived from
Alltracel's patented technology targeting the functional cosmetic/cosmeceuticals
market.

Alltracel has been working on the Phytopeutics(TM) range of dermal health
solutions during the last year utilising internal and independent testing
capabilities to generate a number of skin health compounds from its patented
technologies.  The work was a direct result of findings from Alltracel's
successful healing and anti-microbial trials last year.  A subsequent specific
study of the mechanisms involved revealed additional beneficial skin properties
previously unexplored.  Further development and trialing has produced a range of
compounds that can be utilised for many cosmeceutical applications including
collagen promotion, anti-ageing, antioxidation, hydration and skin repair.

Specific technology benefits:

Collagen Promotion - Phytopeutics(TM) compounds were found to dramatically
increase the quantity of collagen produced by skin cells, replenishing the skins
natural strength and elasticity to combat the signs of ageing. Efficacy results
significantly exceeded current commercially available collagen promotion
technologies.

Antioxidation - A Phytopeutics(TM) antioxidant compound performed excellently 
when compared to current industry antioxidants. An antioxidant can neutralize 
skin damaging  free radicals generated by sun exposure, environmental toxins, 
poor diet etc...  .

Hydration - Phytopeutics(TM) compounds can bind many times their own weight in
water and are well suited for use as topical moisturisers. Incorporation of the
technology helps retain the skins' moisture and helps reduce the signs of skin
damage and ageing.

Antimicrobial - Many of the Phytopeutics(TM) compounds have been demonstrated to
be antimicrobial activity.  These may be employed as antimicrobials in products
to treat conditions such as dandruff, body odour and acne.

Further technological background is available at www.phytopeutics.com.

Alltracel Pharmaceutical's CEO, Tony Richardson, commented:

"The successful development of the Phytopeutics(TM) range of patented skin 
health solutions represents an exciting opportunity for the company to enter the 
high consumption, high margin international cosmeceuticals marketplace. The
technology provides a full range of dermal health solutions for all ages of
skin.

"Last year's proven healing and anti-microbial findings on our woundcare
technologies were the inspiration for investigating and testing the skin
repairing capability on variations of our patented technologies.  The successful
completion of these trials has resulted in the development of the 
Phytopeutics(TM) technology brand."
