  • 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.

It has a funky smell but it works so well & helps all your products on top sink deeper into your skin! Love patting it on my skin after cleansing!

I used this as a toner for my skin before bed each night and noticed a large difference in my overall complexion. It brightened my skin tone and helped alleviate the appearance of acne scars as well as adding moisture to my skin. I highly recommend!

Ummmm this essence is amazing!! I almost fainted when I saw the price tag, but I promise you this product is nothing short from amazing! It will be very hard for me to use another essence ever again lol. This will definitely have you addicted and you'll feel like you can never not use it again lol.

I was a little skeptical about this as I rotate with 2 competing products and tend to keep everything within the same line as they tend to build on each other. The essence had essentially no fragrance and actually felt like water being applied. It is very soothing and absorbed very easily. Not nearly as sticky as the other 2 I use. It appeared to provide a very calming and clarifying treatment.

I was a little hesitant to purchase this because of the price, but after trying and using it for a few weeks its definitely worth the money. Ive heard so many good things about SK-II so I had to try it for myself! This toner has a weightless consistency, so its exactly what I want to use daily.
