SK-II Cellumination Essence Serum claims to brightens and evens out your skin tone to give it an “aura-like glow, as if skin is illuminated from within”.
SK-II’s products are generally based on an ingredient they call Pitera™. The SK-II scientists were looking for a miracle anti-aging ingredient in the 70s when they happened to find themselves in a simple sake brewery and saw the soft and youthful hands of aged sake brewers.
They then deduced that the secret must lie in the fermentation liquid that the brewers’ hands were in constant contact with during the sake fermentation process.
After much research, they found a unique yeast strain which is supposedly the secret to crystal clear skin and named it Pitera.
From their website, Pitera is described to be full of vitamins, amino acids, minerals and organic acids that work together to allow the skin’s natural surface rejuvenation process to function at its prime.
