What is PITERA™: SK-II’s proprietary, natural bio-ingredient derived from fermentation. It improves multiple dimensions of visible skin damage and aging. It is made exclusively in Japan for SK-II.
PITERA™ Origin: In the 1970s, SK-II scientists noticed the hands of elderly Japanese sake brewers looked decades younger than their age.
Realizing the brewers’ hands were immersed in fermented sake “mash” for hours a day, the scientists wondered if something in the fermentation process kept the skin looking younger. Further research into this process led to the discovery of PITERA™, a naturally derived liquid from yeast fermentation.
What’s Makes PITERA™ Unique: PITERA™ contains over 50 micro-nutrients including antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids to nourish and improve your skin from multiple dimensions, reducing visible skin damage.
Inspired by J-Beauty Skincare routines, we recommend applying products from most lightweight to thickest.
