Activating Our Youth Activity With SK-II’s Stempower Technology



As skincare technology becomes more advanced, women have more options when it comes to finding products to slow down the ageing process. Of course ageing is inevitable but all of us want to keep the process as slow as possible. Nowadays it is possible for women over the age of 40 or 50 to look a decade younger and they don’t necessarily have to go under the knife in order to achieve those results. Choosing the right skincare goes a long way towards keeping those lines and wrinkles at bay.

SK-II’s latest findings on the functions of the skin cell’s very own “Master Switch” – a key to activating our youth activity – have shed light on how women can now overcome skin ageing. SK-II unleashes the power of our skin’s youthful activity with its revolutionary STEMPOWER technology, found in the new SK-II STEMPOWER Essence.

In search of the ideal solution to youthful beauty, SK-II’s scientists discovered that the source of our skin’s youth activity lies within our epidermal stem cells. A research collaboration between SK-II scientists and the world’s foremost authorities in the field, has revealed that our skin’s “Master Switch” activation enables the protection of epidermal stem cells by optimising its environment, thus restoring skin’s youth activity to give poreless-looking, bouncy skin.


SK-II’s revolutionary STEMPOWER Essence, concocted with a new and powerful Stem-Acanax ES Complex, targets and transforms the regenerative functions of the skin’s youth activity. Carefully researched and handpicked ingredients in the new Stem-Acanax ES Complex consist of Stem-Acanax, Pitera™, Artichoke Extract and new Kinren Extract. As a key ingredient of SK-II STEMPOWER Essence, Artichoke Extract has been proven to activate our skin’s “Master Switch” to enhance the overall cell functions of anti-oxidation, regeneration and longevity, hence promoting inner cell density and increasing skin’s inner resilience.

Having used an entire 50ml bottle of the Stempower Essence, I’ll say that I like the silky smooth texture of the essence and how it soft and supple my skin felt after each application. My pores are barely noticeable and this is one essence that I would love to continue using.

There are 2 moisturisers to complement the essence –  Stempower and Stempower Rich Cream. My skin gets enough hydration from Stempower and used together with Stempower Essence, they maximise my skin suppleness and smoothness.
