YUN Ltd loves the power of bacteria and is committed to delivering proven solutions that restore and maintain your skin’s natural biome. A privately owned European biotech company, working closely with some of Europe’s foremost experts on probiotherapy. YUN carries out pioneering research and development in probiotherapy for the commercial market.
YUN works closely with some of Europe’s foremost experts on probiotherapy to bring you groundbreaking products that transform the traditional into visionary. Thanks to them YUN Probiotherapy is able to offer a safe solution against a wide variety of common skin concerns. Together we can start reducing the problematic amounts of antibiotics, antibacterials and antimycotics in use today.
YUN Probiotherapy is the result of over 10 years of research and development by the pharmaceutical technology, biopharmacy and microbiology departments from the University of Antwerp, the University Hospital of Antwerp and grants by Flanders’ Innovation & Entrepreneurship department (Vlaio, formerly known as IWT) as well as Flanders’ Department of Economy, Science and Innovation (EWI).
Our groundbreaking research led to the development of a new technology that takes care of common skin concerns with probiotherapy. This scientific breakthrough makes skin care based on friendly bacteria possible and means an important breakthrough in the fight against bacterial resistance and the overuse of antibiotics.
YUN Probiotherapy is based on years of research and development by a team from the University of Antwerp led by bio-engineer and professor in Microbiology Sarah Lebeer and bio-engineer Ingmar Claes. They are supported by prof. Filip Kiekens, head of the department of Pharmaceutical Technology and Biopharmacy of the University of Antwerp and pharmacist Tim Henkens. The scientists’ drive to find practical applications for their research brought them to Tom Verlinden. His background as a pharmacist led him to found biotechnology firm YUN. YUN has received the support of Flanders’ Innovation & Entrepreneurship department (Vlaio, formerly known as IWT) and the Flanders Department of Economy, Science and Innovation (EWI).
Our groundbreaking research led to the development of a new technology that takes care of common skin concerns with probiotherapy. Our research team identified a number of friendly bacterial strains that are strong enough to fight off harmful bacteria and fungi, without damaging the skin’s natural balance. Additionally, brand new processes and compositions were developed to ensure these live bacteria maintain their activity after being processed into skin care products. This scientific breakthrough makes skin care based on friendly bacteria possible and means an important breakthrough in the fight against bacterial resistance and the overuse of antibiotics.
