In search for timeless beauty, scientists went scaling the highest mountains and explored the deepest jungle until they stumbled upon a small sake brewery in Japan in 1970. The aged brewers had soft and youthful hands but wrinkles everywhere else. Amazed by this, the scientist came to a conclusion that the magic is in the fermented liquid the brewers’ kept working on with their bare hands. This breath taking sight was what hinted at the skincare miracle they would eventually uncover. A destiny of beauty was finally within reach.
The sight of wrinkled faces of aged sake brewers and the contrasting soft hands they had was embedded in the memories of the SK-II scientists as they headed back to the confinement of their laboratory. They finally realized that the secret must lie in the yeast that the brewers’ hands where in constant contact with during the sake fermentation process. And that is how an exhaustive research of over 350 yeast strains began. Poring over even the smallest singular detail, the scientists spent over the decade to isolate the single yeast strain that held the secret to crystal clear skin. It was the birth of a miracle, a beauty revolution that would was known as Pitera.
Today, as the leading skincare brand for more than 30 years, SK-II continues to deliver crystal clear skin through well-loved products that are bound to work miraculously.
“I was on the research team that first discovered Pitera. Even back then in 1980, we knew we had found something very special – a gift of nature that will transform skin for generations to come. Even today, we are constantly making new discoveries about its efficacy after 30 years” – Takashi Yoshii, leading scientist who discovered Pitera.
The secret ingredient that created SK-II – Pitera is obtained from a strictly controlled natural fermentation process. It is a clear liquid, rich in vitamins, amino acids, minerals and organic acids. This incredible combination of nutrients work to dramatically improve the skin’s natural surface rejuvenation process.
- Pitera – Full of vitamins, amino acids, minerals and organic acids that work together to allow the skin’s natural surface rejuvenation process to function at its prime.

- Minerals – Provide a treatment for skin texture.
