Amorepacific has unveiled the fifth generation Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum. It is now available in in South Korean travel retail as well as on various ecommerce platforms and department stores, with other travel retail locations to follow.
It will also be launched in Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Singapore in May, followed by Vietnam in July.
The 5th generation Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum has been enhanced with ‘Jaum Activator’, a new anti-ageing complex created by Sulwhasoo’s Herbal Medicinal Science Research Centre.
According to the company, researchers developed the Jaum Activator by studying 20,000 different species of plants and using data mining technology to analyse a total of 3,912 combinations from 1,041 different herbal ingredients.
The Jaum activator promotes skin regeneration, protects the skin against harmful irritants, and uses Youth Master Technology to create a healthy skin ecosystem.
According to Amorepacific, clinical trials showed that participants noted 146% improvement in their Skin Youth Index after eight weeks of using the serum.
The Skin Youth Index is a total anti-aging index that measures skin hydration, radiance, translucency, wrinkle reduction, brightness, and skin barrier. The clinical trials were conducted with 539 women, aged 35-59, from South Korea, China, Singapore, and the Americas, from August to November 2019.
Sulwhasoo’s First Care Activating Serum was originally launched in 1997. Amorepacific claims that it sells one bottle of the serum every ten seconds and that more than 400,000 individual customers have purchased ten or more bottle in their lifetimes.
