AMPERNA® Active Skincare

For people suffering from sensitive skin conditions such as dry skin, acne, rosacea, eczema and perioral dermatitis, each day can be a physical and mental challenge. I know, I’ve been that person myself. Living with skin conditions, especially the conditions that affect your face and neck that you can’t hide, can really get you down.

Simple things such as washing your face in the morning, applying make-up or shaving can be uncomfortable and even painful. And then there’s the emotional side – the ‘how am I going to face the world today’ side.

But life goes on.

You try to ignore those thoughts that run around in your head as you open the front door and head off to work or run some errands. ‘How will I hide this acne?’, ‘I wish I could stop the itching’, ‘If only my painful skin could feel good just for one day’.

And that’s why I’ve spent a long time working with an amazing pharmacist to create a range to help people like us… it worked for me and it’s worked for many others. I’m so excited that I can bring this brand new Australian skincare range to you.

Introducing AMPERNA® Active Skincare – a range of products for sensitive skin that actually work.

Our Philosophy

We are dedicated to creating revolutionary and unique formulas that will rebalance and transform skin. We understand how important healthy skin is to your physical and emotional well-being. Glow-inducing skincare doesn’t need to be complicated or compromise your values. Our products will only ever contain the necessary ingredients, boosted by skin-changing actives that make a real difference.

Active solutions for all skin types

AMPERNA® has been specially formulated for all types of sensitive skin and has been tested on real people with the following concerns:

  • Acne and acne prone skin
  • Rosacea
  • Dry skin and dry sensitive skin
  • Pigmentation
  • Mature and ageing skin
  • Eczema
  • Perioral dermatitis
  • Sunburn

“I’ve never liked my skin, I’ve always been self conscious of the flaws that i’ve seen in the mirror and the concerned comments from well meaning family and friends. My skin has been always prone to comedones, dry spots and breaking out due to stress… To have family members, friends and colleagues who were unaware that I was even trying a new product - trying any product at all - making comments within days of starting to use the AMPERNA® skincare that they felt my skin was clearing and looking smoother was extremely welcome feedback. It’s given my self-esteem and confidence a boost.” Adrian, 44, Specialist, IT Industry

Our ingredients

Our ingredients are what really set us apart. We only include the necessary ingredients and nothing more. No irritants, no allergens, no nasties Our unique formulations not only soothe sensitive skin conditions, but help to heal. Hurrah! Skincare that actually cares for your skin in the long term rather than offering a short term, band aid solution.

Our unique probiotic ingredient

AMPERNA®’s hydrating, resurfacing, repair and rescue products contains our unique probiotic complex. This ingredient delivers good bacteria to your skin, which can protect against premature aging and help to improve both the skin renewal processes and the processes involved in the skin’s adaptation to negative influences. We also use a selection of the following ingredients across individual products in our range:

Hyaluronic Acid

A humectant that helps to replenish moisture and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Glycolic Acid

An alpha hydroxyl acid that can penetrate our skin quickly, acting on acne, blackheads, fine lines and other skin conditions.

Vitamin C

An antioxidant rich ingredient that assists in collagen production, which can help reduce wrinkles and protect the skin from damage caused by UV rays.

Vitamin B5

Another great moisturiser, it also works as an anti-inflammatory by triggering your skin’s healing process.


Molecules that bind skin cells together, acting as a barrier against bacteria and pollutants and helping to plump the skin and retain moisture.

Copper and Zinc Gluconates

These awesome ingredients are packed full of anti-bacterial properties. They support the inhibition of damage to our skin cells and can restore firmness and elasticity to mature skin.

Liquorice Root Extract

You may not like the taste of liquorice, but glabridin, found in its roots, is a powerful antioxidant. It can be great for reducing skin inflammation and improving the appearance of uneven skin tone.

Willow Herb Extract

We have to say that this one is our favourite – it’s just so powerful. Willow herb extract not only acts as an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-microbial but it’s been shown to be effective against acne bacteria.
