  • What is it good for?

    Works on multiple skin concerns and skin types to transform skin to Crystal Clear Skin. It is the ONE almighty product you need to moisturize, soften and smoothen texture, reduce appearance of dark spots and fine lines due to dryness, enhance radiance, even the look of skin tone, make skin less oily looking and... the list goes on!

    In fact, the full efficacies of PITERA™ have not yet been uncovered and until now we continue to discover new things it can do.

    Why it Works

    Our formulation is a lightweight liquid that is quickly absorbed into skin unlike other thicker serums and essences. Each bottle contains 90% PITERA™ and since it’s observed to resemble your own skin’s Natural Moisturizing Factors (NMF), skin recognizes PITERA™ as its own, allows it all in and lets it work its magic in its pure active form.

    This iconic essence’s formula has remained essentially unchanged for almost 40 years, uniquely allowing us to witness PITERA™‘s powerful effect on skin appearance over time (in days, years, and decades) for millions of women around the world.

    What else you need to know

    Our story begins with a chance observation at a sake brewery in Japan, where a group of scientists noticed the elderly brewers had wrinkled faces but extraordinarily soft and youthful-looking hands.

    Intensive search began out of millions of yeast strains and studies were conducted on hundreds of fermentation conditions. Now every drop of PITERA™ is produced by cultivating an exclusive yeast strain under the most stringent conditions that remain SK-II’s most valuable trade secret to this day.

    A miracle like no other, PITERA™ is pure power of nature harnessed by advanced technology.

  • Application is simple. POUR about 2-3 shakes into hand, PRESS palms together and then PAT all that PITERA™ goodness all over your face. Continue to PAT PAT the essence until fully absorbed.

    Use it twice a day, after cleansing and toning. It is the treatment step before your moisturizer.

  • PITERA™ - natural bio ingredient derived from yeast fermentation that resembles your skin's Natural Moisturizing Factors; contains over 50 micro-nutrients like vitamins, minerals, amino acids and organic acids to condition skin's natural functions.

Great product in my skincare routine
I have hormonal acne that I've battled with, and in an effort to be more gentle on my skin, this toner has been number one on my list. I used salicylic acid toners before, which were dry and irritating. My skin would flake! On top of that I use tretinoin 0.1% which is also incredibly drying. This essence helps keep my skin moisturized throughout the day. No more flaking at work at 2pm. I would say the combination of tretinoin and SK-II have made my skin tone more even and brighter. And *knock on wood* I havent broken out in 4 months, so I'd say this is working. I also use the SK-II RNA cream but only at night. I use rosehip oil in the day to moisturize my face more heavily.
