This bestselling toner helps remove stubborn impurities to reveal your skin's true radiance and prepare it for the rest of your regimen. It is crafted with a mix of AHA and pitera—a bio-ingredient rich in vitamins, organic acids, minerals, and amino acids—that work together to support natural skin cell renewal. The alcohol-free formula gently exfoliates while both hydrating and closing pores.

SK-II began at a sake brewery in Japan. Scientists noticed the elderly workers had wrinkled faces but extraordinarily soft and youthful-looking hands—thanks to Pitera™, a naturally derived liquid from the sake fermentation process. Since then, SK-II with Pitera™ has become a skin secret shared by actress Cate Blanchett and women around the world—it transforms the complexion’s texture, radiance, firmness, spot control, and wrinkle resilience. A leading skincare brand for more than 30 years, SK-II continues to deliver crystal clear skin through well-loved products including the Facial Treatment Essence, Essential Power Cream, and the Cellumination Essence.
