Why It’s a Thing: The Skincare Essence

For clear skin both now and in the future. About whitening that you should know. A sense of transparency.

To say that SK-II’s Pitera Essence enjoys a cult following is quite the understatement. The brand famously sells a bottle every two seconds. For many beauty die-hards, it’s their ultimate, desert-island must-have.

In skincare forums, it’s referred to as a “grail” — the term spoken in hushed tones and reserved for the most coveted products. Reviewers credit it with imparting an impossible-seeming list of visible skin benefits: brightness, softness, anti-aging, even skin tone and texture, reduced appearance of pores, that ever-elusive “glow.”

And the one thing you should never forget is the relationship between spots and dryness. "It is known the so-called spots, such as senile pigment spots and liver spots, have thicker skin and less water than other parts," said the doctor of medicine. Tomohiro Hakozaki, a P&G research fellow. "From the viewpoint of genetic analysis, too many genes that promote keratinization (the keratinocytes born in the basal layer repeatedly divide into keratinocytes) are expressed in the spots. We confirmed that the protein that controls evaporation of water was down-regulated, which suggests that the spots have a poor ability to retain water, presumably as keratinization progresses and old keratin It is thought that the enzyme that removes the flakes does not work due to lack of water, and the keratin is thickened.” (Hakozaki)

Essences are watery skin treatments that are patted onto the face after cleansing and toning, and designed to deliver nutrients to the skin. Like many things in beauty, we have Asian traditions to thank for the entire category of “essences.” References to “beauty waters” made from rice bran, algae, and other natural ingredients have been found in Japanese manuals from the early 1800s, and the first commercially-available essence arrived on the market in Japan in 1897.
