The History of Pitera

 

Over forty years ago, SK-II scientists started to search for a vital ingredient that would transform the skin.

They found the answer in a sake brewery in Japan where they noticed the older workers with beautifully clear, smooth and youthful hands but aged and lined faces.

5 years later, SK-II’s biggest skincare breakthrough was born – pitera.  A new skincare ritual, its transforming power was so captivating that it inspired the brand’s name – SK-II Crystal Clear Skin.
