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; and until now, 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.
