SK-II Pitera was discovered by chance over 20 years ago by a group of scientists visiting a sake brewery. They noticed that although the workers had elderly faces yet extraordinarily smooth hands. They were determined to discover why. After many experiments they identified SK-II Pitera, a clear, nutrient-rich liquid which, due to its seemingly age-defying properties, has become known around the world as “the Secret Key to beautiful skin”. The SK-II Ritual combines Pitera with the latest advances in science to promote the natural renewal process of the skin’s outer layer resulting in clearer, smoother and wonderfully radiant skin.
