2014 People: Entrepreneur of the Year
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.
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 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.

The success to good skin is cell turnover and rejuvenation. New skin is revealed when the sugar scrub is applied in a gentle circular motion removing or exfoliating dead skin cells; once the dead skin are removed and new skin is revealed you need to moisturize immediately for the rejuvenation to be effective. Remarlé ® LLC Natural Skin Care products were specifically designed to moisturize while exfoliating creating the remarkablé smooth and soft feel. Additionally, Remarlé ® LLC products contain Vitamins A, C, and E which are known to contribute to the health of your skin. Moreover, 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. www.ChaCha.com www.eHow.com
What does “Natural” actually mean? The classic definition of natural skin care is based on using botanically sourced ingredients currently existing in or formed by nature, without the use of synthetic chemicals, to preserve the integrity of the ingredients. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natural_skin_care
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. Pure Premium Cane Sugar used in Remarle LLC Natural Sugar Scrubs is a natural exfoliant.
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. Herbs and essential oils are the best natural moisturizers for the skin. The best remedy for dry skin is any of Remarle LLC’s Skin Smoothing Sugar Scrub, followed up with an emollient creme such as Remarle ‘s award winning creme, body butter, or lotion. www.buzzle.com
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 of your 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. Vitamin K – Vitamin K may be applied topically, typically as a 5% cream, to diminish postoperative bruising from cosmetic surgery and injections, to treat broken capillaries (spider veins), to treat rosacea, and to aid in the fading of hyperpigmentation and dark under-eye circles. Remarlé ®LLC’s Hand Scrub and Cuticle Oil contain Vitamins A, C, and E Remarlé ®LLC’s Lip Scrub contains Vitamins C and E Remarlé ®LLC’s Body/Face/Feet Scrub contains Vitamin E Any Remarlé ® LLC’s product that contains Coconut Oil has the Vitamin K benefit. The Remarlé ® Body Butter has been shown to reduce redness in Psoriasis which has Coconut Oil and as a result Vitamin K. It also contains Vitamins A and E. www.buzzle.com http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitamin_K 112 Cohen, JL; Bhatia, AC (November 2009). “The role of topical vitamin K oxide gel in the resolution of postprocedural purpura”.
