Product Details

A powerful treatment essence dubbed “Miracle Water” in Asia. Each bottle contains 90% PITERA™, a natural ingredient cultured exclusively in Japan for SK-II. Its transformative powers on skin appearance are legendary, that a bottle is sold every 2 seconds.

  • Works on multiple skin concerns and skin types to transform skin to Crystal Clear Skin
  • It is the ONE almighty product you need to moisturize, soften and smoothen texture, reduce appearance of dark spots and fine lines due to dryness, enhance radiance, even the look of skin tone, make skin less oily looking and… the list goes on
  • The lightweight liquid is quickly absorbed into skin unlike other thicker serums and essences
  • Each bottle contains 90% PITERA™ and since it’s observed to resemble your own skin’s Natural Moisturizing Factors (NMF), skin recognizes PITERA™ as its own, allows it all in and lets it work its magic in its pure active form
  • This iconic essence’s formula has remained essentially unchanged for almost 40 years, uniquely allowing us to witness PITERA™’s powerful effect on skin appearance over time (in days, years, and decades) for millions of women around the world
  • Every drop of PITERA™ is produced by cultivating an exclusive yeast strain under the most stringent conditions that remain SK-II’s most valuable trade secret to this day
  • A miracle like no other, PITERA™ is pure power of nature harnessed by advanced technology
  • POUR about 2-3 shakes into hand, PRESS palms together and then PAT all that PITERA™ goodness all over your face
  • Continue to PAT PAT the essence until fully absorbed
  • Use it twice a day, after cleansing and toning. It is the treatment step before your moisturizer

Origins of SK-II


The Promise of Pitera™

The Promise of Pitera™

The origins of SK-II began in a sake brewery in Japan nearly 40 years ago, where scientists noticed that brewers had aged faces, but soft and youthful hands. Convinced that the secret lay in the fermentation process, scientists screened hundreds of strains of yeast until they discovered a liquid that seemed to defy age—our miracle ingredient, Pitera™.

With a unique combination of micronutrients, Pitera™ contains vitamins, minerals, amino acids and organic acids—all working to enhance skin’s natural rejuvenation process, smooth skin, minimize the appearance of pores and wrinkles, even skin tone, and reveal radiance. Pitera™ is the foundation of our entire product line.

What is an essence?
An essence is a lightweight, hydrating boost to the skin with a consistency that feels like a toner or water. Packed with vitamins, minerals and amino acids, an essence is more easily absorbed by the skin than a thick cream.

When do I use it?
Use the essence morning and night after cleansing and toning.

How much do I use?
5 to 10 splashes of the essence should saturate a cotton pad and be sufficient to hydrate face and neck.

    This feels very light in my skin. I put it on my hands and tap it in my face, kind of like aftershave. I then apply my regular moisturizer and so far I’m liking the results. This is a huge bottle and will last me a long time as you only need a little bit.

  2. nataliyhwang (store manager)

    Great for sensitive skin, evens skin tone including help with redness and discoloration. I can’t think of another way to describe it. With no other changes in skin care product the fine lines around my eyes and mouth are gone, as well as fine smile line on my cheeks and next to my eye area.

  3. rileytemt45 (store manager)

    My friend introduced it to me and I just loved it! My skin changed a lot better since Im using it. This is the one product I won’t change or replace.

  4. penelope5667 (store manager)

    This is probably one of my all time favorite products! I use it as a toner right after cleansing and follow with the rest of my regimen. My skin looks great the next morning. It tones and soothes the skin. I always recommend this product to my friends!
