AMPERNA® Ingredients

Urea is a humectant (a substance used to keep things moist) that occurs naturally within the surface layer of our skin. Part of our skin’s natural moisturising factor, it readily absorbs water and has an extremely high water content that helps to keep our skin hydrated and protected. People with dry skin or eczema have considerably less urea in their skin (as much as 50% less in dry skin and 80% less in eczema affected skin).

Hyaluronic acid helps to replenish the moisture that is crucial to younger-looking, supple skin. It is a humectant; it draws moisture into the skin and keeps it there. Hyaluronic acid energises the skin, so that it feels softer, looks smoother and is luminously hydrated – all whilst reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Glycolic Acid

AMPERNA Glycolic Acid

Glycolic acid is derived from cane sugar and is part of the group of active compounds known as AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids). It contains the smallest molecules of the group and therefore is able to penetrate the skin easily and rapidly, making it most effective for helping the appearance of fine lines, acne, blackheads, dullness and oiliness.

Vitamin C is rich in antioxidants and assists in collagen production. It reduces the appearance of wrinkles, moisturises dry skin and helps to protect the skin from free-radical damage caused by UV rays.

Vitamin B5

AMPERNA Vitamin B5

Vitamin B5 is a deeply hydrating compound that helps to keep the skin smooth, supple and healthy. It also functions as an anti-inflammatory by stimulating your skin's healing processes.

Ceramides are lipid molecules found in high concentrations within cell membranes in the upper layer of the skin. They hold skin cells together, forming a protective layer that plumps the skin and holds moisture. They also act as a barrier against bacteria and environmental pollutants.

Copper and Zinc Gluconates

AMPERNA Copper and Zinc Gluconates

Zinc and copper are vital minerals for overall skin health and for slowing down the visible signs of ageing. They both contain important antibacterial properties. Zinc provides sun protection and cellular repair. Copper helps to desaturate fatty acids which can help to repair and maintain ageing skin. Adding these minerals to your skincare routine helps to prevent skin damage, whilst giving the appearance of firmness and elasticity to your skin.

This plant extract has skin-soothing attributes due to its component, glabridin, which is a powerful antioxidant. Licorice root extract is often included in products for sensitive skin and may help to improve uneven skin tone.

Willow Herb Extract

AMPERNA Willow Herb Extract

This extract is a power house: it is anti-inflammatory, anti-irritant, antioxidant, anti-microbial, anti-viral, cleansing and acts as a natural analgesic. It has been shown to be effective against acne bacteria. Willow herb extract simulates hydrocortisone to relieve discomfort. Traditionally, the plant has been used topically as a soothing, cleansing and healing agent to help minor burns and other skin irritations.

Vegetable glycerine is a clear odourless liquid produced from plant oils. Glycerine is a humectant; a substance that attracts moisture to the skin and leaves your skin hydrated. Humectants also help active ingredients to become more easily absorbed by the skin.

AMPERNA Niacinimide

Niacinamide helps reduces inflammation, which may help to ease redness from eczema, acne, and other inflammatory skin conditions. It also helps keep skin smooth and moisturised which may therefore help in reducing pore size over time.

Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate (HPR – Retinoic Acid Ester) which you might be familiar with as "granactive retinoid" helps diminish signs of ageing whilst being more gentle on skin that other forms of retinol. Granactive retinoids help skin turn over whilst helping to slow down the degeneration of collagen.

Zinc Oxide

AMPERNA Zinc Oxide

Zinc oxide works as a SPF by reflecting and scattering UV radiation. SPFs help reduce or prevent sunburn and premature ageing of the skin.

Titanium dioxide works as a UV filtering ingredient. It helps protect a person’s skin by blocking absorption of the sun’s ultraviolet light that can cause sunburn and is also linked to skin cancer.

Colloidal Oatmeal

AMPERNA Colloidal Oatmeal

Colloidal Oatmeal is a grounded-up oatmeal that is then made into a liquid. This is a highly moisturising and soothing ingredient which helps reduce irritation caused by eczema and dermatitis. Colloidal Oatmeal has also shown to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

Lactic Acid helps remove old dull skin cells, speeds up cell turnover and stimulates cell renewal.

Lactic Acid is a larger molecule than other AHAS (like Glycolic) which means it doesn’t penetrate as deep into the layers of your skin. Which is perfect for dry or sensitive skin as it’s a gentler way to exfoliate without being too harsh.

Thanks to its bigger molecule size, it’s also a humectant (a moisture retainer) which helps to increase the natural moisturising factors within the skin.
