"Pitera" was discovered by chance some 40 years ago. A scientist noticed the hands of the workers at a Japanese Sake Brewery where they still looked beautiful and young despite being wrinkly and old. This led to a 5 year research by a team of scientists leading to the discovery of SK-II's Pitera. Derived from fermented yeast, packed with rich amino acids and proteins. Light weight but powerful!
Now every drop of Pitera™ is produced by cultivating the one exclusive yeast strain under the most stringent conditions that remain SK-II’s most valuable trade secret. This iconic essence’s formula has then remained essentially unchanged for almost 40 years as the full efficacies of Pitera™ have not yet been uncovered; and until now, SK-II is continuing to discover new things it can do. A miracle like no other, Pitera™ is pure power of nature harnessed by advanced technology.
A powerful treatment to visibly soften texture, reduce the appearance of dark spots and fine lines due to dryness, even the look of skin’s tone, and enhance visible radiance.
