  • 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.

Glad I’m back!
I started using this product about 10 years ago. I stopped and started using another product. I’m back and I’m staying this time. I forgot how great it makes my skin feels and looks. I’m 58 and I’m told I looks 48.
