I had reported on the results I got from testing SK-II products a while ago when they had finally arrived in North America. I remember running to Holt Renfrew to get my hands on the products because I had read so much about them.
I’m not surprised one bit that Proctor & Gamble chose Cate Blanchett as the new face for their Japanese skincare and anti-aging brand.
SK-II is one of Asia’s most popular anti-aging products and it has been solving aging concerns of many women living in the Orient for over 25 years. SK-II was developed by a scientist who visited a Japanese sake-brewing company and noticed that the workers had youthful and soft skin. After five years of research, the scientist discovered the secret to their youthful skin was a clear liquid derived from sake during its fermentation stage. The ingredient, Pitera, has become the signature ingredient in all SK-II products.
I’ve highlighted some of the major points I had reported on initially:
Manufacturer’s claim: “The main ingredient in SK-II Facial Treatment Essence is Pitera (90 per cent pure). Pitera is a single blend of vitamins, amino acids, minerals and organic acids that work together to regenerate the appearance of your skin by promoting the renewal of the outer layer, enabling the skin’s natural rejuvenation process.”
Historical facts: The age defying properties of SK-II can be traced back to a sake brewery in Japan where a visiting monk discovered that hands of the elderly workers were incredibly smooth and youthful looking.
The Facial Treatment Essence, which I tested, is the most popular product among the 27 items under the SK-II brand.
SK-II is available in most high-end department stores in the U.S. and the entire line of SK-II products is sold exclusively at Holt Renfrew in Canada.
