SK-II is one of the most famed skincare brands, and for the uninitiated, it’s hard to know why this range has created such a cult following. There are a lot of buzzwords - Pitera, Genoptics, Aura Essence - so to understand how to navigate the range, or which products are right for you can feel a bit of a minefield! Worry not - we’re here to decode the range, and explain just why SK-II products have such a committed following. Hint: It’s because they’re just THAT good!
What is SK-II known for? Why is there such a cult-following?
The SK-II brand is based on a miracle: the discovery of a special gift of nature, called 'SK-II Pitera'. The story began when SK-II developers tracked the facial patterns of 100 women in Akita, Japan over a 10-year period to investigate the various factors of skin ageing. The researchers concluded that a perfectly youthful-looking complexion involves an intricate balance of five dimensions: smoothness, clearness, radiance, firmness, and lack of lines.
SK-II scientists began looking for natural ingredients that would help sustain skin’s youthful qualities. Over many years, SK-II developed its signature ingredient: Pitera.
Why is the SK-II Essence so famous?
Far and away, the hero product found in skincare cabinets across the world is the SK-II Essence - the SK-II Pitera Essence, to be precise. Now expanded into a full SK-II Pitera Essentials line of cleansers, masks, lotions, and eye treatments is formulated to brighten skin while adding nourishment and moisture.
What are the best SK-II products for anti aging?
The SK-II Anti-Aging line of face and eye creams, serums, and masks is designed to strengthen elasticity and retain firmness while drenching skin with hydrating emollients.
