First-of-its-kind, quick, gentle relief
Ditch the steroids, we discovered a completely new skincare ingredient: Marine Glycoproteins!
We're Bioengineers that worked with lobster scientists, researching a glycoprotein that allows lobsters to regenerate limbs - in the same way they do this, they help repair the skin barrier!
After trying everything to clear our own eczema, we experimented with a homemade glycoprotein-rich formula.
Within days, IT WORKED!! The dryness, itchiness, flakiness and irritation was finally gone. After this, we launched Marin to bring this natural relief to others.
About the Browntail Moth Rash
What is it?
The Browntail Moth Rash is contact dermatitis caused by contact with the hairs of the Browntail Moth Caterpillar.
What should I do if it get it?
- As soon as you believe you may have come into contact with the hairs, leave the area and change out of any clothes that might have gotten hairs on them.
- Take a cold shower inorder to rinse hairs off of your body.
- Apply a calming cream (Marin Soothing Hydration Cream works well) to the affected area, starting with a dime sized drop for a localized region like your forearm.
- Avoid the area where you came into contact with the bugs, monitor your skin for any new rash spots, and reapply Marin cream every 4-6 hours to help soothe irritation and relieve itching.
- Consider anti-itch or histamines if itching and swelling is out of control.
Tips to Avoid the Browntail Moth Rash
- Do yard work after it rains
- Take a cold shower to help soothe irritation
- Clear trees of nests in the winter
- Avoid doing yard work on hot windy days
What areas are hosts to the Browntail Moth Caterpillars?
In previous years, Browntail Moth caterpillar outbreaks have been localized to coastal communities, however, this year (2022) the caterpillar epidemic has spread.
Browntail Moth Caterpillars can now be found in every Maine county, and in Cape Cod.

What Real People Have to Say
"Literally a miracle in a bottle!"
I have to make this review acknowledging what has helped my itching/rash during this Brown Tail Moth season in Maine.
I tried the ‘magic formula’ that everyone is talking about (the one with the witch hazel, hydrocortisone, calimine... I even tried Benadryl)
The itching would just keep persisting.
Last weekend, my husbands dad was kind enough to give me some of his Marin cream. I was hopeful but was not prepared for it to work just THIS well. It literally was so gentle, but was effective like a steroid.
I applied it once before going to bed and did not wake up during the night itching! In fact, when I woke up, I didn’t itch at all and the swelling had gone down considerably.
A LITTLE WENT A LONG WAY.
This was the only thing that remotely helped the itching and swelling and needless to say I am very impressed.
"Brown tail moth rash"
Like many people in the Maine mid-coast area, I’ve been affected by thebrowntailmoth rash. The microscopic hairs cause an irritating rash with terrible itching. I’ve tried several prescription topical corticosteroids and every anti itch solution over the counter product. Your Marin hydration cream provides better, faster and longer lasting results than anything else I’ve used. The rash and the itch have been significant reduced. Thanks
"Applied it twice and itch was gone"
I was mowing my lawn a few hours ago. I had a long sleeve shirt on and a tee shirt. When I came in I had a pretty itchy rash under one of my forearms. I 'think' it may be from a brown-tail moth hair. I looked in my linen closet and found a tube of your product I ordered when you first went into business. I applied it twice and the itch was completely gone. Nothing scientific here, but I know many people who have gotten this 'rash' and use cortisone ~~ you might want to consider whether this is a viable option. I don't know anything about testing, but I'd much rather use your product.
