Intrepid scientists discovered SK-II's transformative ingredient at a sake brewery 20 years ago, noticing that even though the workers' faces showed the signs of time, their hands seemed to be dipped in a veritable fountain of youth. Now known as Pitera, this nutrient-rich ingredient is found in every SK-II product, and leads to clearer-looking, smoother skin with continued use. 'Sake' it to us!
SK-II skin signature cream
This "signature cream" is called that for a reason–it's the cult-inspiring luxury product that strengthens what SK-II calls "Skin Power," defined as an improvement in the appearance of radiance, smoothness and firmness. With vitamin B3, Pitera (of course) and Oly-Vityl, plus conditioning ingredients that mimic those found naturally in your skin.
What is SK-II Pitera:
Consisting of vitamins, amino acids, minerals and organic acids, that work together to restore the appearance of your skin's outer layers by, enabling the skin's natural surface rejuvenation process to function at its prime.
