Effective solution against pimples

After more than 10 years of research at the University of Antwerp, YUN brought effective and sustainable solutions on the market against common skin conditions based on good bacteria. ACN therapy is a sustainable, effective and safe treatment against acne symptoms and pimples.

The unique formulation contains three living Lactobacillus strains specifically chosen to compete naturally with Cutibacterium acnes and Staphylococcus spp., the organisms that play a role in the development of acne.

In our clinical study, 100% of the patients have visible results after 4 weeks. (Clinical trial – Lebeer et al. 2018)

How does ACN work?

Our skin is covered with a protective skin flora. When your skin flora is in balance, the good bacteria protect you from bad bacteria that can cause various skin conditions. Acne symptoms and pimples have many underlying causes, such as hormonal changes, nutrition, stress, medication, … This causes an overproduction of sebum which forms a breeding ground for bad bacteria. Classic skincare often use antibacterial ingredients and preservatives and kill both the bad and the good bacteria.

      When do you use ACN? And when to use ACN+?

      Especially the skin type is important. If you have normal to oily skin, it is better to use ACN. The ACN Wash will remove more sebum and the ACN Cream is less moisturizing. If you have dry skin it is better to use ACN+. The ACN+ Wash will remove less sebum and the ACN+ Cream contains nourishing jojoba oil.

      How do I use ACN/ACN+?

      First use the ACN(+) Wash. This gentle wash gel removes excess sebum without damaging your skin flora. Then apply the ACN(+) Cream. Use a fingertip. The cream will feel a bit grainy. This is because the cream contains microcapsules. These microcapsules contain ‘sleeping’ good bacteria, which wake up, as it were, as soon as the microcapsules open. First rub the microcapsules open in your hands and then apply the cream to the problem area. It may happen that after rubbing in the cream, small flakes remain. These are the microcapsules that are not completely dissolved. After the cream has been soaked in, you can simply rub it away. ACN/ACN+ has the best effect when you use it twice a day. Preferably in the morning and evening.

      What should I keep in mind during use?

      It can happen that in the first week you experience a flare-up of new pimples. Don’t worry, this will go away soon. Your skin needs time to regain its balance. Not everyone experiences this flare-up of pimples. Because each skin is unique, everyone reacts differently. The first effects can be seen during the first weeks, but also here it is different for everyone. Some only see changes later. We recommend using the ACN/ACN+ therapy for at least one month before you can evaluate the effect. Also, do not use any other soap, lotion, wash, oil or other skin care products during therapy. Most products contain ingredients that influence and disrupt the action of the YUN bacteria.

      Can I use ACN/ACN+ if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?

      All YUN products are safe to use during pregnancy and when breastfeeding.

      Are the products tested on animals? Is YUN vegan?

      None of the YUN products nor ingredients have been tested on animals. Animal testing is prohibited by law in Europe. YUN is completely vegan, no ingredients derived from animals have been used.

      Will my pimples come back when I stop using ACN/ACN+?

      The development of acne depends on several factors. Usually hormones are one of the most important factors. YUN ACN/ACN+ is not going to affect your hormones or other underlying factors, but it is going to fight the bad bacteria that cause pimples. As long as the underlying factors don’t change, pimples will return to most people after you stop therapy. This also applies to therapies based on antibiotics and disinfectants. Unlike these therapies, YUN ACN/ACN+ has no side effects, so there is no problem with prolonged use. We recommend using ACN/ACN+ twice daily for two months.

      How long is ACN/ACN+ shelf life? And what is the best way to store ACN/ACN+?

      The ACN/ACN+ creams have a shelf life of 6 months after production. The expiry date can be found on the bottom of the product. It is best to keep creams containing bacteria in a cool place. Make sure that these products never come into contact with temperatures above 25°C.

      The ACN/ACN+ Cream contains small spheres, is that normal?

      The ACN/ACN+ Cream feels a bit grainy. This is because the cream contains microcapsules. These microcapsules contain ‘sleeping’, good bacteria, which wake up when the microcapsules open. We recommend that you first rub the ACN/ACN+ cream in your hands so that the microcapsules break open. Only then do you apply the cream to the problem area. It may happen that small flakes remain after the cream has been absorbed. These are the microcapsules that are not completely dissolved. After the cream has been soaked in, you can simply rub it away.

      Can I use sunscreen?

      We recommend that you always use sunscreen when in contact with the sun. After all, burning is never good. Make sure that there is at least half an hour (but preferably an hour) between applying the ACN(+) cream and the sun cream. After that you can apply the sun cream. This way, the effect of the bacteria in the ACN(+) Cream will not be disturbed too much.

      Can I use make-up?

      Be careful with make-up, especially with products such as foundation and oil-based make-up. If it is not really necessary, it is better not to apply any other products on your skin except YUN. If you still want to use make-up, a powder form is a better choice. Oil-based make-up can clog the skin and pores. The same applies here as for sun cream: wait a little after applying the ACN(+) cream (at least 30 minutes) before applying makeup. Makeup should certainly not be applied too thickly. Foundation and powder clog up your skin, causing pimples and impurities to appear.

      How long can I use ACN/ACN+?

      There is no danger of long-term use of ACN/ACN+. The good bacteria will fight the bad bacteria (which cause pimples and impurities) by reducing the overgrowth of bad bacteria. The good bacteria do not act on the body. Therefore you have no side effects and you can use the ACN/ACN+ therapy as long as necessary. We recommend to continue the therapy for a lasting result.

      Does ACN/ACN+ also help against eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, pigmentation spots, wrinkles, skin aging?

      YUN’s ACN/ACN+ has been specifically developed against pimples, acne symptoms and impurities. Our products have not (yet) been clinically tested against eczema, psoriasis or other skin conditions. However, YUN products can be used safely if you suffer from any of these skin conditions. The ingredients are soft and natural and none of the YUN products contain harsh chemicals. This makes them also suitable for people with other skin conditions than pimples, acne symptoms and impurities. YUN makes the skin healthier and moisturizes. We do not claim that it is effective against skin aging and wrinkles.
