Business Spotlight: Remarle Provides Natural Skin Relief

by Alyssa Capel

Renee LeMasney, creator of Remarlé Natural Skin Care, believes that smooth, healthy skin can be a reality for everyone—naturally. What began as a search for relief for her own skin ailments became a business when she began selling her homemade skin products at local farmer’s markets in 2012. A sufferer of eczema and dry, sensitive skin, she knows better than anyone that the right products can do wonders for the skin. In her case, they were products she created and tested herself—free from harsh and harmful chemicals.

“I started making products for myself personally before I even thought about starting a business with it,” LeMasney explains. “When I hit 40, my skin became very dry and insatiable and I developed a sensitivity to all moisturizers.” She believed that the unnecessary chemicals found in the products were the culprit and decided to cut them out entirely in favor of a natural, homemade solution. “After a year of experiments, the body and face scrub was born. People that were using the scrub loved it, so I created three more—a lip scrub, hand scrub and cuticle oil.”

LeMasney’s ideal customer is “someone who has sensitive skin issues and is looking for a natural solution.” For all creams and cures, she cautions, “Read the labels. Even though your doctor may have recommended it, you need to be your own educated advocate and make sure you understand what you are putting on your skin.”

Since she launched Remarlé two years ago, LeMasney has received the Seal of Acceptance from the National Eczema Association for her Shea Butter Creme and was voted Entrepreneur of the Year for 2014 by Bucks Happening. LeMasney now has plans to expand the reach of her product, hoping to make her creations available through retailers like Whole Foods.

LeMasney holds a master’s certificate from Temple University in Drug Development and Regulatory Affairs and a master’s certificate from Drexel University in Epidemiology and Biostatistics.

The importance of exfoliating and moisturizing your skin?

Why Should I Exfoliate?

Plain and simple exfoliation is an important process in maintaining clean and healthy skin; it removes dead skin cells on the surface of your skin (the epidermis) keeping your skin cleaner, smoother and brighter.

Sugar Scrubs help clean your skin’s surface and unclogged pores which help with cell turnover and rejuvenation. Sugar Scrubs can be used on any body part as long as it is chemical and fragrance free as in Remarlé ® LLC products. Sugar cane is the main source of glycolic acid which is a good way to battle the signs of skin aging; it is also good for people experiencing acne and blackheads as well as extremely dry skin. When the sugar scrub is applied in a gentle circular motion removing or exfoliating as much of the dead skin cells as possible fresh new skin is revealed.  This is when you should moisturize.  The natural vitamin enriched oils used in Remarlé ® LLC products act as a barrier so that water does not quickly evaporate from the skin making it Remarkablé Smooth and Soft ™.  Additionally, Remarlé ® LLC products contain Vitamins A, C, and E known to contribute to the health of your skin.

Why do I need to moisturize my skin?

The skin needs moisture to repair and renew itself. While the skin produces it own oil through the sebaceous glands, sometimes extra moisture is needed. As we get older our skin does not produce enough oil and becomes very dry, add in menopause and all of a sudden the wrinkles, lines and visible signs are aging are prevalent. The Skin needs to be hydrated either internally or topically to be soft, supple and smooth.

Moisturizers have been found to help restore the skin barrier providing a protective layer on surface of the skin to trap water and prevent the penetration of irritants and allergens.  An emollient cream is superior in trapping the moisture within the skin. There are five randomized controlled  trials showing benefit to emollient use in atopic eczema. Remarlé ® Skin Smoothing Shea Butter Crème is an emollient and has been awarded the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance.

What are the benefits of Vitamins A, C, and E for my skin?

Vitamin A – Vitamin A is very good for skin health and it actually harnesses and reverses the effects of multiple skin problems. Vitamin A is known for remedying issues such as wrinkles as it acts as an antioxidant that limits the action of free radicals from causing damage to your skin.

Vitamin C – Vitamin C is a tremendous antioxidant that helps in slowing down the natural process of skin aging.  The skin usually begins to show its first signs of aging and wrinkling when the body stops or slows down the production of two proteins- elastin and collagen. These proteins are essential in order to maintain the health ofyour skin and keep it young. To overcome these skin problems, the use of vitamin C is highly beneficial as it assists in the production of collagen. It helps in minimizing the sun damage caused to the skin by neutralizing the free radicals.

Vitamin E – One of the major factors that cause substantial damage to our skin cells is exposure to ultraviolet radiation of the sun. When it permeates into the skin, it attacks the oxygen molecules present in the skin cells first. As a result, the oxygen molecules are converted into free radicals. Even though oxygen is an essential component for the existence of our life, its free radicals have high reactivity and are toxic in nature. Due to its reactive nature, the free radicals of oxygen launch an attack on proteins, lipids and DNA molecules. The collagen protein present in the skin which is responsible for making the skin smooth and supple are used up by the free radicals. This accelerates the aging process of the skin and gives rise to problems like skin discoloration, wrinkles, age spots, etc. The skin gets a leathery texture. It can increase the risk of skin cancer too. Vitamin E oil has some inherent qualities that enable it to provide protection to our skin from all these harmful effects of free radicals.

What are the benefits of Shea Butter Crème?

Shea butter is extracted from the nut of the shea tree (Vitellaria paradoxa) in West Africa. High levels of natural anti-oxidants  (A and E) and essential fatty acids (Stearic and Oleic) found within the nut’s buttery contents have proven extremely effective for moisturizing and repairing damaged skin.  Shea Butter works because it is able to penetrate the epidermis and provide a protective layer which traps water and keeps the skin hydrated.

Shea butter’s healing qualities include:

  • Intense Moisturizer
  • Helps heal damaged skin
  • Helps restore skin’s own elasticity
  • Keeps skin supple during pregnancy
  • Sooths chronic skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis
  • Sooths rashes and helps protect from the sun (does not replace sunscreen)

Shea Butter also has antimicrobial (used against bacteria and antifungals) and anti-inflammatory properties.

My Personal Experience with Eczema

I was 10 years old when I developed Eczema on my feet. I was up all night crying and scratching much to my mother’s chagrin. I had it soo bad that I was allowed to wear open toed shoes to Catholic School (with a doctor’s note of course). The rebel and fashionista I was, I of course wore platform open toed shoes; it was after all 1973. The nuns just loved me.

My mother took me to my newborn brother’s pediatrician who only chastise me for keeping my mom up all night and never gave me anything to help with the itching. He told me to “just stop scratching and go to sleep and stop keeping my mom up all night”. I will never forget this because anyone that has ever had eczema knows that you want nothing more than to “just stop scratching and get a good night’s sleep”. It was not until a year later that a family relative recommended to my mom and dad to take me to a dermatologist. It was there that he prescribed “Valisone” the ointment. In two weeks the eczema cleared and my mom and I were able to sleep again.

Valisone is no longer available, which I am shocked about because it worked. The good news is that my patent pending “Hand Scrub” formula is helping people get relief from eczema. It exfoliates and moisturizes at the same time without causing more pain to the area.

If you have eczema you should give it a try.


Remarlé ® LLC Testimonials

Below are testimonials I received before having a website that enables people that have purchased products online to review as a verified buyer.  There are also Facebook and Instagram testimonials not listed here. My products are amazing, but please don’t take my word for it, read the reviews.


“Just wanted folks to know how truly impressed I am with Remarlé LLC Exfoliant & Moisturizer. I am a woman in my mid-sixties with very dry skin, most especially in winter, that results in lines and cracks around my eyes and mouth making my skin appear withered. I have tried many, many moisturizers even some very expensive brand names but after repeated use I always develop allergy symptoms resulting in ugly swellings under my eyes. I have been using Remarlé Exfoliant & Moisturizer on my face for about 7 months with remarkable results. The exfoliant crystals reduce the appearance of facial pores, especially on my nose and cheeks, making my skin look healthier, while the oil makes my face feel very, very silky. In the coldest days of winter my face showed no cracks or dryness, and unlike many moisturizers, there is absolutely no oily residue. Even now in the heat of summer it leaves my skin soft and silky without any oily feel. Best of all, I have not experienced any allergy symptoms even after all these months!” Ann D. – Bensalem, PA

“First thing I would like to do is thank you for your BODY SCRUB that you make. I have M.S. and VERY DRY SKIN and I tried so many different body scrubs. Someone told me about you and how you make an all-natural body scrub. So I tried it and I love it. My skin is now soft and doesn’t look all dry. THANK YOU NO MORE DRY SKIN” Cindy K – Philadelphia, PA

“I have been meaning to send you a message to tell you that I absolutely love the products! They are fabulous and I am looking forward to getting in touch the 2nd or 3rd week of September to place an order! I have used most of the products in the market – i.e. Mary Kay, Avon, Arbonne, etc. and yours beats them hands down! Speaking of hands – OMG the cuticle oil and hand scrub is AMAZING! Great job!”- Lynnette Zack-Blanton

 “I am in love with the scrub. I’ve been using it on my elbows too and can’t believe how soft and smooth they are!” THANKS – Gail

“This is the most amazing product! I have been using The Body Shop products which I have liked alot for several years and I find this to be so superior. I have very dry skin and this is the BEST!!!” – Barb Colombo

 “I bought your body scrub at CLC craft fair, and I’m hooked already! Excellent product. I’m very sensitive to smells, and I love that my skin is so soft without smelling like a flower or a piece of fruit….thank you” – Beth B.

“This is an awesome product! For over 3 years I have had a problem with my right hand – dry, cracked, red, itchy, burning and sore (yes – I saw a dermatologist about this). On Saturday I tried the hand scrub and saw instant results! I am now on my 3rd day of using the hand scrub and I just can’t believe the significant changes to my hand. For the 1st time in 3 years I am not experiencing the pain & itching which had become part of my everyday existence! I have shared this product with several friends & they too are impressed with the results! I highly recommend Remarle products.” – Diane from Bensalem commented on Remarlé ® LLC Testimonials

“I have had eczema for 40 years; the worst is on my hands. I have taken prescription steroid ointment since I have had it and it just does not work. I also tried Aveeno lotion with socks, but still no change. It was not until I tried Remarle LLC’s hand scrub on my hands that I saw a change, it actually went away and my hands are silky smooth. ” – Ann Zimmerman

First time I used the Sugar Scrub was summer of 2013, I was about 15% covered in Psoriasis and the scrub did wonder for my skin and my psoriasis quickly faded away. I recently had a minor flare after being sick with flu, ordered the scrub from amazon, it arrived very quickly and after 4 days of using and the spots on my elbows, knees and legs are already starting to fade. I would continue to purchase the scrub and will also recommend this to anyone who suffers from psoriasis. – JP

Another customer comment – I swear by your deodorant and African soap!!! I can’t get enough!!!!!

Acne Face Wash review -Thank you for making such a great product! My skin gets softer and prettier each time I use this!  – MD

Received my order today and am very happy with it; thank you so much! My friend gave me a small container of the body butter for Christmas and I used it on my feet. It makes them softer and takes the itch away. My dog also has bad skin allergies and his skin will get flaky and turn red. I tried the body butter on the red patches on him, as the steroid sprays and meds the vet prescribed did nothing. The body butter actually helps my dog’s skin! He doesn’t run away from me when I put it on him, and seems to enjoy the massage. And I don’t have to worry about the ingredients, and no steroids. Thank you so much for your products, excited to try the Shea butter creme on my own eczema.- H.S.

Body Butter for Psoriasis – Unscented


Love the Shea Butter Creme and Sugar Scrub. As a hairdresser, my hands are in water and chemicals all day long. It dries them out terribly to the point I developed hand eczema. The one two punch of these products is the only thing I used that works! I also just recently found a new use for the Shea butter, it helped to heal a fresh tattoo better than anything made specifically for that purpose!T.C.

I couldn’t be happier!

It’s always been difficult for me to find deodorant that works for me. I’ve used several clinical strength deodorants that don’t work nearly as well.
