For more than 35 years, SK-II has touched the lives of millions of women around the world by helping them to “Change Destiny” through the miracle of crystal clear skin and life.
The fascinating story behind SK-II began at a sake brewery in Japan, where scientists noticed the elderly workers had wrinkled faces, but extraordinarily soft and youthful-looking hands. These hands were in constant contact with the sake fermentation process. It took years of research for scientists to isolate the miracle ingredient PiteraTM, a naturally-derived liquid from the yeast fermentation process.
Since then, SK-II with PiteraTM has become a special secret shared by celebrities such as Cate Blanchett and Tang Wei around the world, transforming skin along the five dimensions of texture, radiance, firmness, spot control and wrinkle resilience critical to crystal clarity.
A leading skincare brand in 13 markets, SK-II continues to deliver the transformative power of crystal clear skin and life through well-loved products including the Facial Treatment Essence, R.N.A.POWER, and GenOptics Aura Essence.
