The Evolution of SK-II Facial Essence
This wonder essence has gained global recognition since its launch and rose to be a top seller in a few countries across South East Asia. Here are some facts of how it came about:
After choosing Akita as the place of research as this prefecture is famed for its legendary beauties, SK-II spent a decade studying ageing patterns among women in Akita.
Skin Concerns Discovery
20’s: Women in their 20’s mainly had concerns in the areas of radiance and firmness
30’s & 40’s: Women in their 30’s and 40’s were mainly concerned about texture, radiance and spots.
Solution Found: SK-II identified five dimensions that define beautiful skin: Radiance, Texture, Firmness, Wrinkle Resilience, Spot Control
RESULTS : Products from each of the brand’s key boutiques delivered significant improvements across all five dimensions that define beautiful complexion by up to 90 per cent within a year.
All the work that goes into a bottle of SK-II Facial Treatment Essence
1. Cultivating the Power of Pitera™
When yeast is used in skin care, one wonders if there may be other kinds of bacteria growth that would ultimate affect one’s skin too when it’s being use. However. SK-II assures that this yeast strain is cultivated in a strict-controlled environment, which ensures that efficacy of the ingredient is enhanced through prevention of any other bacteria growth from occurring.
2. Enhancing the Culture
The yeast is added to a precise calculated culture solution, providing “food” and nutrients and enhancing growth. As the yeast cells multiply, the yeast is eventually moved to the production chamber.
3. Perfecting the Balance of Pitera™
In the chamber, the yeast is cultivated in a tank filled with a generous amount of culture solution. As the yeast absorbs the nutrients and multiplies, it diffuses a metabolic fluid filled with vitamins, amino acids, minerals and organic acids that enhances and beautifies complexion.
4. Refining the Solution
Upon completion of the fermentation process, the metabolic fluid is then filtered to form the stock solution of Pitera™.
5. Revealing the Miracle
Water is removed from the stock solution, giving birth to the precious, powerful Pitera™.
6. Encapsulating the Essence
Pitera™ is bottled after its formulation, giving birth to SK-II Facial Treatment Essence. Facial Treatment Essence is the only beauty essence with over 90 percent Pitera™.
