Sucremor is the U.S. subsidiary of Abyssal Japan, a cosmetics company based in Hokkaido, Japan.  It was founded by Mari Noboritate, mother of 2, who worked for a US cosmetics company in New York City.  While she was in NY, she learned that sugar can help keep skin moist. This led to her thinking that it might help her daughters who both had bad eczema.  When the girls used Mari’s trial product, they saw results and the itching and dryness faded away.  This led to the creation of the waterless sugar scrub (patented in 2003) which is sold today, made using Hokkaido sugar beets.
