The story begins with a chance observation at a sake brewery in Japan where scientists noticed the elderly brewers had wrinkled faces but extraordinarily youthful-looking hands. Intensive searches began out of millions of yeast strains and studies were conducted on hundreds of fermentation conditions.
Now every drop of PITERA™ is produced by cultivating the one exclusive yeast strain under the most stringent conditions that remain SK-II’s most valuable trade secret. This iconic essence’s formula has then remained essentially unchanged for almost 40 years as the full efficacies of PITERA™ have not yet been uncovered; SK-II is continuing to discover new things it can do. A miracle like no other, PITERA™ is pure power of nature harnessed by advanced technology.
