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.
