The secret behind SK-II Pitera

SK-II's trademark product and global favorite, is their facial treatment facial essence made from Pitera. The legend of Pitera started when Japanese scientists noticed that Japanese elderly laborers who worked closely in the sake fermentation process had amazingly youthful looking hands despite these laborers being elderly. SK-II scientists followed this phenomenon and later discovered that the sake fermentation process contained Pitera, an ingredient found in the fermented yeast of the sake brewing process. Hence, SK-II is the only company in the world that has access to this specially patented ingredient and is dubbed "Miracle Water".


How To Use

  1. After cleansing and toning, take a palm full of the essence

It works wonders for my skin

I tried everything to get the glass skin glow which I did get with multiple products. By the time you put all the products on to get that glow you have spent just as much as if you would have bought this (not to mention the time it takes to put on those products!). Yes it’s expensive but it’s worth it for a one and done glowing skin.

Soft, supple skin

I love using this after I cleanse my face and before using any essences or serums. Super light and brightens up my skin. Makes my skin so soft. Very luxe and definitely a treat to use. One of my favourite products.


Amazing glow after using this product for months it takes time to work and the bottle is going to last at least a year

Love this miracle fluid

I purchased this product in a department store before. It was only a little cheaper on Kiyoko. It’s pricey so I can only use it for a special occasions. I wish it came in a spray container but then it’s possible to loose a drop. At it’s current price, every drop is precious. Wish I could use it everyday.

Essential in my routine

This product is so amazing and it will make your skin glowing and confident to go outside without makeup.
