The AMPERNA® Solution is for Everybody

The AMPERNA® probiotic skincare range was specifically formulated for sensitive skin and skin concerns including eczema, dermatitis, acne, psoriasis, and rosacea.

As a parent myself of two young children, one of which suffers from eczema on the back of her knees, I feel assured that the AMPERNA® products I use to soothe her irritated skin are gentle, safe, and free from nasty ingredients or irritants.

What a relief to find a skincare brand that is suitable for the entire household.

AMPERNA® Skincare Beyond your Skin Concern

Why I started Using AMPERNA®

In the beginning of 2021 I had my first experience with perioral dermatitis. I’d never suffered from this skin concern before so I didn’t know what it was or how best to treat it.

After a visit to the dermatologist who prescribed me antibiotics, an antifungal cream (and a print-out on PD from Dr Google… thanks for that) I did more research myself and came across AMPERNA® probiotic skincare.

I ordered the Soothing Duo and followed the regime Kiri provided with my products. My aggravated skin instantly felt soothed upon using the DS serum and Lightweight Emulsion. Within four to five days my flared skin was completely gone. I couldn’t believe it!

I haven’t had a perioral dermatitis flare since and I still use AMPERNA® products to this day (two years later).

That is the beauty of this range. Once your skin concern is cleared or under control, you can continue to use the AMPERNA® products as your ongoing skincare regime.

The AMPERNA® range goes beyond your skin concern. Let me explain.

Caring for your Skin Biome

The carefully selected ingredients in AMPERNA® products help soothe and calm red inflamed and irritated skin. The star of the show is AMPERNA®'s hero probiotic complex, Lactococcus ferment lysate which delivers good bacteria to your skin. Having a protected and balanced skin biome is the key for an overall healthy-looking complexion.

When our skins biome is in good balance other benefits include:

  • Improved ability to stay hydrated
  • Restoring a healthy pH to the skin
  • Strengthening the skin's surface against environmental damage and stressors

You’ll also find other skin nourishing ingredients like hyaluronic acid, vitamin c, ceramides, copper, zinc gluconates, niacinamide, liquorice root extract and glycolic acid in AMPERNA® products. Essential ingredients to help if you are on a pro-ageing skincare routine (which is the skincare journey I am now on).

Pro-Ageing and Strengthening the Skin Biome

Both good and bad bacteria live on our skin, and although the top layers of our skin are dead there’s still an abundance of microflora on the surface. Topical probiotics help keep and restore the natural balance of the skin microbiota.


As the probiotic breaks down on the skin’s surface, they create amazing new ingredients for the skin such as hyaluronic acid, peptides, and vitamins plus an increase in the presence of ceramides. This results in better skin hydration, boosting radiance and creating a visibly renewed overall vitality, therefore diminishing/lessening the sign of ageing skin.

AMPERNA® has a healthy view on ageing skin, one that’s not negative and more so embracing the fact that ageing skin is an inevitable occurrence in life. However the AMPERNA® solution, which is holistic in its core, allows you to feel beautiful and confident in your best skin, gracefully.

How AMPERNA® has helped my Child

My three-year-old daughter suffers from eczema on the back of her knees. 
The AMPERNA® Wash + Lotion Duo are the only products I use to help soothe her irritated and inflamed skin.

I personally didn’t want to use a steroid cream on her skin and run the risk of long term side effects steroids can create. I’m so happy to find safe and soothing products that effectively help when her eczema flares.

The Hydrating Gentle Wash is a lightweight fragrance and soap-free cleanser that gently cleans and balances the skins's pH.

The ingredients that help my daughters’ eczema:

  • Colloidal oatmeal is a natural anti-inflammatory ingredient which soothes, hydrates, and moisturises the skin. It’s beneficial in both treating and relieving symptoms of eczema.
  • Humectants such as Urea, Glycerin and Lactic acid (in low concentrations) help the skin retain moisture by attracting water molecules from the lower cell layers like a magnet. Which is essential for skin barrier repair.
  • And Silverion has antibacterial properties.

The Hydrating Gentle Lotion with Ceramides is fast absorbing, non-greasy and offers 72 hours of hydration which is exactly what eczema skin craves.

Why this lotion works so well:

  • Like the wash it has key soothing ingredients like colloidal oatmeal, urea, and lactic acid. But it also contains
  • Pentavitin which relieves itchy, dry and flaky skin, rapidly restoring the skin barrier function.
  • Ceramides. Those who suffer from eczema have fewer ceramides (fatty molecules) in their skin. So, replenishing these via a lotion rebuilds the skin's own protective barrier.

The Wash and Lotion duo is perfect for the rest of our family too. I love the fact these products are gentle and effective, leave our skin feeling clean and soft and aren’t filled with any irritating ingredients.

Kiri is here to help. If you or someone in your family has a skin concern you can reach out via email at or book a one on one holistic skin coaching call via the website.

It was the best thing I did for my own skin when I had my first perioral dermatitis flare. But beyond that I now only trust and use AMPERNA® products for myself and my family as I know we are in safe hands.
