"I like SK-II for having their own attitudes and philosophy. Ever since I started paying attention to my skin care, I have been using PITERA™ Essence. It's been four years since I started using PITERA™ Essence, and I don't need to worry about my skin anymore," said Leah Dou.
"It is cool how SK-II brings me this authenticity of being just myself and I love it. SK-II Facial Treatment Essence has become the important part of my life now and I am very satisfied with my crystal clear skin that it brought me," said Zhang Zi Feng.

For more than 40 years, SK-II has touched the lives of millions of women around the world through skin and life transformation. The fascinating story behind SK-II began with a quest to understand why elderly sake brewers 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 PITERA™, a naturally-derived liquid from the yeast fermentation process. Since then, SK-II with PITERA™ has become a special secret shared by celebrities all over the world such as Chloe Grace Moretz, Simone Biles, Tangwei, Ni Ni, Chun Xia, Haruka Ayase and Kasumi Arimura and Naomi Watanabe.
