A cult-favorite among skincare enthusiasts, SK-II’s anti-aging treatment essence contains Pitera, an ingredient packed with vitamins, amino acids, minerals, and organic acids that help balance the skin's pH. The discovery of the miracle ingredient began in the 1970s, when researchers noticed that Japanese sake brewers had soft and young-looking hands. They went on to study the ingredients found in the sake, ultimately leading them to what we now know as Pitera.
