Black Bear to Marin Skincare: Alumni founders adding value to Maine's lobster industry

Portland, Maine

 

Portland, Maine - Marin Skincare is a Maine story.

It started in 2013 when co-founders Amber Boutiette and Patrick Breeding met on the first day of their first year as biomedical engineering undergraduate students at the University of Maine. Nearly eight years later, the pair has relocated to Portland, launched a specialty skincare product made with lobster glycoprotein, and is now teaming with an established Maine brand, Luke’s Lobster, to scale their supply chain and meet strong demand for their first product.

Luke’s Lobster, a seafood company founded by third-generation lobsterman Luke Holden, has been part of the Marin story from the beginning. The Luke’s Lobster ethos is focused on sustainable, traceable seafood that supports the coastal communities essential to its harvest. Boutiette and Breeding (’17, ’19G) were introduced to Holden by Robert Bayer, former director of the UMaine Lobster Institute. It was Bayer who discovered that lobster glycoprotein might have beneficial properties that could help treat Boutiette’s stubborn and painful eczema — and it did.

“I had eczema for most of my adult life and it progressively got worse over the years,” says Boutiette. “Having it on your face is debilitating because you can’t really use products that have steroids in them, and I had it really bad around my eyelids and on my cheeks. I tried every type of eczema cream, oils, diet changes, lifestyle changes, everything. Nothing helped.

Nothing, that is, until Bayer, Boutiette and Breeding collaborated in 2017 on a prototype of the product that would later become Marin’s Soothing Hydration Cream.

“Within a day or two, I noticed a difference,” says Boutiette. “I first noticed my skin was not burning and itching as much. After about a week to two weeks, the spots had cleared, which was incredible after years of trying so many different products.”

“Within a day or two, I noticed a difference,” says Boutiette. “I first noticed my skin was not burning and itching as much. After about a week to two weeks, the spots had cleared, which was incredible after years of trying so many different products.”

 

They had solved Boutiette’s pressing problem - this was the eureka moment. Breeding and Boutiette were hooked on the entrepreneurial mindset and increasingly focused on developing a product that they felt could change people’s lives. 

“As we thought about life after grad school, we came back to this product that had helped Amber relieve her eczema,” says Breeding. “What better thing could we work on than this new solution to a really irritating and painful problem that affects over 10 percent of the population?”

When Boutiette and Breeding began building Marin and developing their first product, they went back to Holden to source their key ingredient. Lobster glycoprotein is a component of lobster circulatory fluid, a natural byproduct of processing.

This past summer, Boutiette and Breeding spent hundreds of hours at Luke’s Lobster Seafood Co.’s processing facility in Saco collecting the glycoprotein in the quantities needed to manufacture Marin’s first batch of cream.

After launching in early October 2020, Marin sold out of their initial inventory inside of two months. Customers were clamoring for more of the cream, and the co-founders had to come up with a plan to scale — and fast.

While they had solved Boutiette’s pressing problem, this was not a eureka moment for the pair, who were gearing up for graduate school and preoccupied with another startup they had recently launched, Zephyrus Simulation.

“Amber’s eczema was gone, and we kind of forgot about it,” says Breeding.

Instead, Boutiette and Breeding were immersed in something of a crash course on entrepreneurship as part of a team trying to commercialize a cost-efficient, realistic simulator to train medical professionals in diagnosing and responding to critical respiratory situations. The technology was the basis of their senior capstone project, which had won the undergraduate Innovation Award at UMaine’s 2017 Student Symposium.

It was through Zephyrus that Boutiette and Breeding first were exposed to the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Maine. Recruited out of the Student Symposium and guided by the team at the Foster Center for Innovation, the two dove headfirst into the startup life and coursework in Innovation Engineering. Though Zephyrus eventually wound down, Breeding and Boutiette were hooked on the entrepreneurial mindset and increasingly focused on developing a product that they felt could change people’s lives.

Breeding and Boutiette took a step back and focused on systems, a familiar principle from their Innovation Engineering studies at UMaine.

“Everything works by a system or process,” says Breeding. “And, knowing that, there’s a system or a process for everything. So, if you don’t know how to do something, don’t know how to solve something, you only need to think about it from the fundamental principles of the steps in the process by which it works.”

There was no blueprint for how to scale up the collection of lobster glycoprotein, but Breeding had plenty of experience doing it himself, and a willing collaborator in Holden. Going forward, Luke’s Lobster employees will collect the glycoprotein as part of their processing operation, and Marin will purchase the raw material.

“Luke’s Lobster is consistently looking for innovative ways to find win-win solutions within the lobstering industry, from the moment lobsters are harvested to the finished products being created and marketed,” says Holden. “On the fishermen side, for example, we return bonuses to co-ops we work with when lobsters are handled exceptionally well so there is no waste in the supply chain. On the product side, we seek to use everything we can; whether that’s creating a plant fertilizer with lobster shells or a skin care product that truly helps people. Partnering with innovative companies like Marin is part of the overall equation that makes the lobster industry more robust and dynamic through a diversification of products. On a personal level, I enjoy working with entrepreneurs in Maine and helping them wherever I can.”

 

 

Breeding, a Connecticut native, and Boutiette, who grew up in Skowhegan, are both quick to credit Maine’s supportive and tight-knit entrepreneurial community, not to mention their crucial link to the lobster industry and enduring ties to their alma mater.

“In Maine, there’s this community of people that want you to succeed and will go out of their way to help you,” says Breeding. “It started at the Foster Center where we were gently pushed — pushed in the right direction, pushed to the right resource, pushed to the right thing we needed to learn. The support mechanisms in Maine for startups are unique and the focus on economic development makes it very nurturing.”

“I feel that we really will help Maine’s economy,” says Breeding. “In the beginning, it was theoretical, but now we’re actually paying Luke’s for raw material. We’re paying a processor for this protein before the lobster is even sold. That adds value to the lobster industry — it helps buoy the processors, which helps buoy the fisherman. As we’ve progressed, we’ve become more connected to that story because the impact has become real.

For Boutiette and Breeding, gratitude has defined their journey to this point. Now fully restocked with a solid plan for the future, they are grateful for the support they’ve received from all corners of the state, grateful to be selling a product that can be a game changer for people with troubled skin, and grateful for an opportunity to add value to Maine’s most iconic fishery.

 

 

“It is the most incredible thing to be able to develop something that can help people with the same problem I had,” says Boutiette. “I feel so lucky to have been able to try it in the first place, to help myself, but I feel a million times luckier to be able to help others and bring relief from that heavy of a problem.

The team is excited to continue to release products to help address dry, aggravated skin. You can follow the company on Instagram at @MarinSkincareUS and on Facebook at @Marin Skincare.

On my 4th order

Game changer!

Marin's cream has superpowers of healing and counteracts my dry and sore hands as a result of no thyroid, eczema and a nasty habit of over-manicured cuticles. The cream addresses the redness and promotes skin healing. I have seen results overnight, which blew me away. I'm in the Marin fan club and just ordered my fourth tube. Give it a go!

Really love this - especially for problem elbows and feet.

my husband has been using your cream on his psoriasis with really promising results!

Awesome moisturizer!!!

I waited until I finished an entire tube (and ordered 2 more) to write a review. This lotion is light and non greasy. I’m 64 and an avid gardener and hiker. Though I’m using the lotion all over (including my face) it has worked heavenly on my dry overworked hands and feet. I apply morning and night. The results are clearly smoother, softer skin. My callused feet are loving this stuff. I’ll be back for more lotion and I’m definitely recommending it to family and friends.

Great people, great customer relations, great product

As the title reads, these guys are top notch. And their product is the best I've tried, even better than medicated products from other companies.

So far so good!

Seems to be working well.

Incredible results in a short time!

I wish I had taken before and after pictures so I could show the results I got from using 1/2 of my first time of Marin cream. The front of both of my legs were always covered in a rash. I scratched them so much over the years I had indentations in the front of both legs. After applying Marin within the first month I could see the rash was disappearing. Now there is no sign of it at all after a few months. I can’t believe it worked so well!!! Thank you for creating this wonderful product!!

Marin… from a retiree

I really like the stuff !

Excelllent product

This product does precisely what it says it will do… it calms angry skin and hydrates dry skin. I’ve got my daughters using it too!

Soothing Hydration Cream

Fantastic

Thought I had allergies. Skin broke out, puffed and scaled. After lots of allergy medicine, I used Marin. Miracle! Cleared up with in 2 days. Think it must be exema (spelling). Had to wait 6 weeks to see an allergist. Bringing my tube of Marin as a testament. LOVE it!

Nothing Else Worked this Well

I've got some pretty dry rough patches on my shoulders and back that have all but disappeared. I've tried all manners of Gold Bond, Nivea, Cetaphil, CereVe, Aquaphor, etc. Nothing else has worked, and this cleared it up in a day after two applications. Cannot recommend enough!

Life Saver

I have suffered with exema for 3 years now. I had a patch on the back of my head that just would not clear up. I had started using just hydrocortisone cream, then was prescribed numerous steroid treatments to no avail. I had really just given up hope and thought that I would just live with it on the back of my neck forever. A co-worker had a tube of Marin on her desk and I tried it, honestly I wasn’t very optimistic about it, I thought for sure it wouldn’t do a thing. But WOW! This product has literally saved my life. I used the product 2 times a day for 4 days and the difference was incredible. My neck is no longer itching, flaking, or inflamed. I will continue to use the product until it clears completely up, and I will recommend it to anyone I know who has suffered with exema like I have!

Excellence!

I just ordered more of your exquisite product. It really works on my troubled hands, feet and face. The cream makes my skin smooth and healthy. Couldn’t be more happy. Thank you!

Soothing Hydration Cream

Love it.

I was skeptical after trying so many remedies and nothing met their claims. This really works and is not greasy or perfumed.

Amazing eczema relief

My Stepson have very bad eczema and it was painful just looking at the state of his skin. He had a flare up, used the Marin and told me it was amazing. He was so relieved that it worked so fast to heal his condition. We will continue to purchase this cream.

Amazing

My daughter has had eczema on her face for a few years, this is clearing it up better than ANYTHING I’ve tried! She also has some thought bumps on her arms and legs that I’m finally trying to tackle with this cream.

Soothing Hydration Cream

Two thumbs up!

Great product that really works!

Fabulous

I love this product. I’ve had a skin outbreak every winter for the last few years. I was diagnosed with seborrhea by my dermatologist and given some prescription creams to try. Nothing helped it - and in fact made it worse. Then I saw an episode of Chronicle on TV that showcased Marin products made with lobster shells. I tried it and it worked!! This sounds like one of those advertisements that are totally untrue, but this really worked for me! I am so thrilled and thankful!!!

Awesome skin repair!

I can’t say enough about this amazing product. It’s made an amazing difference on my skin. I had an injury and immediately put it to use. I have excellent results after just a few days. I’m so glad I discovered this product!

Happy camper

I purchased a bottle after a high recommendation from a friend. I have eczema, and the day my bottle arrived my hands were so bad they just plain hurt. I put some Marin on them and they instantly felt way better. Unfortunately I broke out in a terrible rash and stopped using it for a while. I went back to using it slowly with no issue (guess it was something I ate) and have been happy with it since. I just purchased my second bottle. I am a happy camper!

Highly Recommend

My daughter has skin that scars easily and after one bottle her scars are lighter! I wish it came in a bigger bottle, but we love the product. I have not tried it personally as I have a shellfish allergy, but am curious to test it to see if I would react.

Highly recommend!

I bought it for my boyfriend who had an unknown skin irritation and Marin cleared it up in three days! I recommend it to a friend who’s young son has terrible eczema and within a few days the improvement was amazing!! She and I both highly recommend your product!! I also use it on my fur babies irritated skin, all around great product!!!

Helps with Multiple skin concerns

We are on our 2nd bottle and continue to see results. My 7 year old gets little white bumps on his arms and cheeks. I've tried many lotions and Marin is the first lotion where I've seen a reduction of the bumps. They haven't gone completely away but it is helping. I also use it on my cracked heels and after one application I see a difference. I personally think there is a slight shrimp smell to the lotion but my son says he doesn't smell anything, so maybe it's in my head!
