In the Spotlight
THE GIFT OF EVERLASTING BEAUTY
The iconic Facial Treatment Essence gets a stunning transformation
Art and beauty collide in spectacular fashion this festive season with SK-II's limited edition series of Facial Treatment Essence. Designed in collaboration with award-winning Taiwanese artist Po-Chih Huang, who transformed the iconic bottle with captivating images of flowers, this exclusive collection is symbolic of the gift that truly lasts - the gift of everlasting beauty.
THE ART OF TRANSFORMING BEAUTY
Mutually dedicated to the idea of transformational beauty, SK-II and digital artist Po-Chih Huang's collaborative collection celebrates the transformative powers of PiteraTM, the brand's signature ingredient that has brought the miracle of crystal clear skin to millions around the world.
Winner of the prestigious Taipei Arts Awards Grand Prize in 2013, Huang is recognized as one of Taiwan's top emerging artists to watch. Known for using digital technology as the chief medium of his artworks, the artist's innovative technique of digitally transforming flowers - a universal symbol of beauty - while capturing their vitality and essence inspired his collaboration with SK-II. Coincidentally - or perhaps, auspiciously - he was born in the year 1980, the same year SK-II was launched.
A Delicate Process
To achieve the unique floral designs, artist Po-Chih Huang tenaciously scanned each flower, shifting its position to create a sense of movement and three-dimensionality. This technique took over four months and involved over 10,000 scanned image files.
THE LANGUAGE OF FLOWERS
This year's exclusive limited edition bottles of SK-II's best-selling Facial Treatment Essence, containing over 90% PiteraTM, are adorned with Huang's stunningly modern floral artworks in four distinctive variations, the first time ever that the miracle essence will be available in four different designs.
Each design draws inspiration from a particular flower and color - red tulips, yellow freesia, purple hydrangea, and green cypress - while also symbolically representing a different facet of beauty – passion, elegance, compassion and wisdom.
Choosing a particular bottle design translates into a celebration of the recipient as well as a wish for them, making it the ultimate gift of the season. Gift-givers can pick meaningful designs for their loved ones, and loyal SK-II users can add all four to their wishlists to collect the entire series.
