Pitera is contained in all SK-II products and is a naturally occurring liquid derived from yeast’s fermentation that closely matches nutrients found in skin.

Hailed as the key to restoring and maintaining your skin‘s balance and beauty,pitera is a naturally derived concentrate of vitamins, minerals, organic and amino acids, all these ingredients are found in our Natural Moisturising Factor (NMF) are vital for the healthy function of the skin.

SK-II scientists first discovered this skin-transforming ingredient 40 years ago in a sake brewery in Japan. They noticed the older workers with beautifully clear, smooth and youthful hands but aged and lined faces. Five years later, SK-II’s biggest skincare breakthrough was born – pitera, a new skincare ritual so captivating that it inspired the brand’s name – SK-II Crystal Clear Skin.

Pitera may help to improve skin via its:

  • Amino acids – principal component accounting for 40% of NMF in human cells, play a major role in moisturising the skin
  • Organic acids and calcium – contributes to making old cells peel off smoothly
  • Vitamins – help the skin’s cells renew smoothly
  • Minerals – improves skin texture, creates bright & transparent skin

Hmmm...not sure about this!

I wish I could say it magically improved by ageing skin but...in all honesty, I don’t think it did anything for me. Maybe you need to be under 40 to get a result with this one! It made me feel like I was spoiling myself which was nice. It’s great value if it works for you though. Just not for me.

Awesome product.

I am normal to combin skin, ance-prone skin, this is a perfect light-weight essence for me for the all time. It has changed my skin condition and it definitely worth the money I invested.

Interesting but not a game changer

I was expecting big things from this brand. It’s nice but not a game changer for me. I haven’t seen any noticeable differences in my skin as yet, I’ve used 1/2 a bottle. I am 40 with combination/oily skin.
