The AMPERNA® Story

AMPERNA® is an Australian skincare brand committed to creating active products specifically formulated for even the most sensitive skin, so they can be used by everybody.

AMPERNA® founder Kiri Yanchenko personally struggled with adult acne (and perioral dermatitis). Sparked by serious underlying health issues, her skin went from normal to unbearable almost overnight. So began her search for a solution. Kiri’s skin reacted to many common irritants in skincare. She knew her skin needed help to return to its healthy balance. She was looking for an ultra gentle skincare range that contained key active ingredients, but couldn’t find one. Thus, AMPERNA® was born. 

With the help of a like-minded chemist, Kiri spent the next few years researching, testing and developing the optimal skincare solution. After much back and forth, the pair finally uncovered the perfect set of formulas.

AMPERNA® skincare is holistic and effective, driven by Kiri’s deep personal understanding of the challenges faced by having problem skin. Our products contain only the necessary base ingredients plus skin-changing actives, such as our probiotic complex and our bio fermented oligopeptide, glycolic acid and vitamins B and C.

All formulations are free from nasties, including sulfates, parabens, aluminium, synthetic fragrance, synthetic colours and bleaches. AMPERNA® products are made in Australia and tested by real people in the real world.

AMPERNA® is results driven and always looking for new ways to innovate.

“People are affected both physically and emotionally by the appearance of their skin. They’re looking for an effective, affordable solution they can trust.”
– Kiri Yanchenko, AMPERNA® founder
