Japanese pharmacist Yoshikiyo Nowatari had a chance encounter with an outspoken woman who suffered from chronically cracked, super dry skin. She explained that although she'd been using petroleum products for years, she found the greasy results far from satisfying. At her request, Nowatari teamed up with a chemist to develop Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream, a glycerin-based and vitamin-enriched moisturiser designed to smooth over dryness from head to toe. Word quickly spread of its remarkable ability to heal everything from split cuticles to frostbite and it became Japan's bestselling skin cream. Now, let's start making a wish list to take to the next pharmacy visit, shall we?
