Masterclass 101: What exactly is Pitera?
Pitera was discovered 39 years ago in Japan, derived from a natural fermentation process from a special yeast strain that is exclusive to SK-II.
Pitera Essence – a.k.a. SK-II Facial Treatment Essence – is known for its transformative powers, and those who have used it swear by it claiming that their skin is so much better than ever before.
It didn't gain the term ‘Miracle Water’ throughout Asia for nothing.
Excited to uncover the legend of Pitera? We sure are! Our recommendation: stay tuned to Pitera Masterclass by subscribing to SK-II's YouTube channel
