What is PITERA™ Essence?
SK-II’s Facial Treatment Essence is often referred to as “Miracle Water”. The secret lies in PITERA™, a special strain of yeast unique to SK-II that’s derived from a natural fermentation process, and is packed full of amino acids, vitamins, and minerals—all of which works to improve the appearance of skin over time.
It was discovered 39 years ago in Japan when a group of scientists noticed that the hands of elderly sake brewers looked supple and youthful, which was a stark contrast to their wrinkled faces.
