The Proof of Pitera™
SK-II Facial Treatment Essence, containing over 90% Pitera™, helps skin improves skin's natural functions so your skin stays Crystal Clear, now and always.
When skin experiences dryness, water is stripped from the skin, resulting in weak skin-barrier functions, leading to further dehydration and wrinkles in long term.
Extremely hot and dry conditions as experienced by Chiara during her expedition in one of the most arid places in Western America, aggravates these skin concerns.
However, when skin is conditioned by PiteraTM, a natural bio-ingredient that comprises of over 50 micro-nutrients, it locks in moisture, so that your skin stays crystal clear.
"As excited as I was about embarking on a new project and adventure, I was worried about keeping my skin hydrated and protected given the extreme conditions. The SK-II Facial Treatment Essence really helped me keep my face hydrated and glowing throughout the expedition." -- Chiara Ferragni

Since it was introduced, the Facial Treatment Essence has helped women around the world achieve crystal clear skin. Pitera™ contains amino acids, vitamins, organic acids and minerals that transform the skin along five dimensions of firmness, texture, radiance, spot control and wrinkle resilience.

For more than 35 years, SK-II has touched the lives of millions of women around the world by helping them to "change destiny" through the miracle of crystal clear skin and life. The fascinating story behind SK-II began at a sake brewery in Japan, where scientists noticed the elderly workers had wrinkled faces, but extraordinarily soft and youthful-looking hands. These hands were in constant contact with the sake fermentation process. It took years of research for scientists to isolate the miracle ingredient PiteraTM, a naturally-derived liquid from the yeast fermentation process. Since then, SK-II with PiteraTM has become a special secret shared by celebrities such as Cate Blanchett around the world, transforming skin along the five dimensions of texture, radiance, firmness, spot control and wrinkle resilience critical to crystal clarity. A leading skincare brand in 13 markets, SK-II continues to deliver the transformative power of crystal clear skin and life through well-loved products including the Facial Treatment Essence, R.N.A.POWER and GenOptics Aura Essence.
