Product Details

WHAT IS IT: An Aura Essence with Aura Complex and PITERA™, it reduces your skin’s hidden and visible spot formations to reveal a brighter aura glow. SK-II discovered via its first-in-the-world research that UV exposure damages the skin by causing invisible spots and cloudy appearance at the same time; in addition to SK-II’s 10-year skin tracking study (Akita study) that observed a visible loss in radiance and age spots over time. These discoveries have inspired the launch of SK-II’s GenOptics Aura Essence containing an infusion of Prunus extract and Pitera™, in addition to active a brightening ingredient, D-melano P3C™ to tackle spots and skin clouds before they surface. GenOptics Aura Essence contains PITERA™ in every bottle. PITERA™ is a clear liquid rich in vitamins, amino acids and minerals that works together to allow the skin´s natural surface rejuvenation process to function at its prime. This unique ingredient was discovered over 35 years ago and remains essentially unchanged until even today. Impossible to create artificially, PITERA™ is the perfect element to improve the skin’s natural surface rejuvenation process.

Origins of SK-II


The Promise of Pitera™

The Promise of Pitera™

The origins of SK-II began in a sake brewery in Japan nearly 40 years ago, where scientists noticed that brewers had aged faces, but soft and youthful hands. Convinced that the secret lay in the fermentation process, scientists screened hundreds of strains of yeast until they discovered a liquid that seemed to defy age—our miracle ingredient, PITERA™.

With a unique combination of micronutrients, PITERA™ contains vitamins, minerals, amino acids and organic acids—all working to enhance skin’s natural rejuvenation process, smooth skin, minimize the appearance of pores and wrinkles, even skin tone, and reveal radiance. PITERA™ is the foundation of our entire product line.

    I absolutely love the SK-II GenOptics Aura Essence Serum. The smell is divine and my skin loves this stuff. After using this product consistently for over a few weeks, I can immediately tell the difference in my skin. It’s more glowy, the serum evened out my skin tone and fights against anti-aging. I love this stuff!

    I love my SK-II GenOptics Aura Essence Serum! At first, I didn’t understand the difference between the holographic and red bottle. I learned that the products have the same ingredients and benefits, but the aura/holographic bottle adds a beautiful glow to the skin. The product leaves my skin looking dewy while providing incredible skincare benefits, too. This serum is definitely a daytime product.

  3. youngjane3

    This is an okay product for me. I barely use serums but this helped with dry skin. The only concern I have is the price tag.

  4. anahills

    Changed my skin. No pores, clear beautiful glowing skin and it works on my sensitive skin.

    I love it because it leaves my skin very luminous and it helped me to close the pores on my face. I would definitely buy it again.

    This serum was a great addition to my morning routine! It seeps into my skin leaving a soft and supple feeling. My moisturizer glides on easily and my skin feels so awesome and soft throughout the day.
