Our skin is more than a protective barrier that keeps our insides properly hydrated and protected from the environment. It is our largest organ and is critical to sustaining life. If our skin is damaged or irritated, it may be painful and itchy, and be more susceptible to infection and scarring.
A skin barrier that is defective is believed to be a factor in the development of eczema, Rosacea, psoriasis and other skin conditions.
Renew Intensive Skin Therapy
Patented Renew Intensive Skin Therapy contains a combination of moisturizers in a way never before accomplished. The combinations of ingredients act as a soothing, protective barrier on top of the skin.
Two independent, double-blind clinical studies determined that Renew quickly improves dry skin, and improves the severely dry skin symptoms associated with eczema. Renew users with eczema-prone skin had improved skin hydration and significant improvements in the reduction of redness, itching, flaking and scaling.
The Melaleuca Wellness Guide lists Renew as a solution for over 40 conditions.
Acne - You can apply T36-C5 to a developing pustule. Use the T36-C5 to clear the plugged oil ducts. Renew Intensive Skin Therapy should be used afterwards to keep moisture in the skin and resist oil accumulation. Avoid dry-brush or friction-rubs with alcohol as this naturally stimulates oil production.
Diaper Rash - After towel drying apply Renew Intensive Skin Therapy to form a natural moisture barrier on the skin before diapering.
Chemotherapy - Tea tree oil is recommended to help minimize the damage chemotherapy does to toenails and fingernails. When taking chemo apply T36-C5 and Renew Intensive Skin Therapy on your hands and feet to help prevent fingernail and toenail loss.
When layering products such as T36-C5 Melaleuca Oil, Renew Intensive Skin Therapy and MelaGel remember to use the lightest product first, for example T36-C5 then Renew and or MelaGel.
One last note about the appearance of our skin:
According to this PubMed abstract entitled Skin Aging and Dry Skin, our skin ages not only because of wear and tear, and because we are getting older, but also as a direct result of sun exposure. Here is where proper use of moisturizers and sunscreens can make a difference. The article states: "Successful treatment of dry skin with appropriate skin care products gives the impression of eternal youth.

The Renew Lotion or actually "Renew Intensive Skin Therapy" has probably helped and comforted more people than any other item in Melaleuca's healing quiver! And I believe it is one product that every customer has tried! At least twice!
Before I used Renew I had to use E45 Cream which did not work as well, as I had very dry legs which were susceptible to getting ulcers. I am 87 and have been using Melaleuca now for 3 to 4 years and have never had an ulcer in all that time. I put it down to the fact that the cream keeps my legs more hydrated without the dry flaky patches I had before. Thank you Renew for keeping me healthy.
My daughter is four and she develops little dry patches on the backs of her legs and at the elbows. When she has a flare up we use Renew Body Wash and Renew lotion on her. She usually clears up in just a few days. It saves her a lot of scratching and discomfort. In between flare ups we continue to use Renew lotion to keep her skin hydrated. This winter I have used the Renew Body Wash and Renew lotion to help my dry skin. After a shower with the body wash and application of lotion, my skin feels moisturized and soft. We love our Renew!
I want to tell my story about Renew. My hubby is a truck driver who drives into the far end of northern Ontario every other week. Frequently he has to work on the truck without gloves in cold and dry weather. You can imagine what this does to his hands after awhile. They become cracked and sore. He's been searching for just the right hand cream that will heal, not smell, and not be greasy. I introduced him to Renew and he loves it. It's the only product now that works for him. Thanks for letting me tell my story.
Although Renew is a favorite product of mine, this experience regards my sister, Angela. Having Down syndrome, and being 9, we are often encouraging her not to rub the contents of her nose, as it runs, over her face. When we don't succeed in dissuading her from doing so, the skin becomes red and irritated. Renew has proven to be the best in countering this intrusion to Angela's face thus far, and thanks to the extensively researched information contained in the Legacy of Wellness, I'm sure that nothing will come close. Thank you Melaleuca! A concerned brother.
I have always suffered from dry skin. Nothing has seemed to help my skin be more soft than Renew. I've tried everything from Aveeno to doctor recommended creams which only worked short term. But when I found Renew I saw the difference in my skin just after a few applications.
I have two testimonies to share about Renew lotion. First, I used to get a terrible dermatitis on my legs in the cold wintertime. My legs would get really dry, turn purple, and develop "scales." After I became a Melaleuca customer, I started using Renew Body Wash and Renew Lotion all winter. NO MORE dry scales on my legs! Second, my grandson used to have eczema on his arms. He would cry at night because his arms itched, burned, and hurt. His mother started using Renew Lotion on his arms. This lotion completely HEALED his eczema.
My daughter-in-law had very severe eczema to the point where she could not open her hand because all her hands were blistered. She was in pain for about 10 years. When I saw the presentation for the first time, I definitely said to myself I can surely help someone. I ordered the Value Pack and I gave her the Renew lotion to try. She told me she tried every hand cream there was on the market. I told her you ought to try this one. She did and within 5 days of using the Renew lotion she could finally open up and stretch her fingers. She was in tears when she called me to tell me the good news. Plus she held her boyfriend's hands for the first time too; this was very a heart touching story for us. We have to say a huge thank you to Melaleuca!!
In 2005, shortly after my second hip replacement surgery, I was diagnosed with Idiopathic Peripheral Neuropathy. I went to see a neurologist at the University of Iowa Hospital and he suggested, among other things, that I find a really good lotion because I was going to need it for my legs. Luckily, I was familiar with Renew lotion because I had been using it on my hands and arms and was able to get rid of the dry skin caps on my elbows. Along with the neuropathy, I also have poor circulation and edema in my legs. When people see my lower legs, they think I have diabetes; but I don't. When I first started dealing with these problems, I didn't take them as seriously as I should have and had several bouts with venous skin ulcers. Once I figured out what was causing them, I took steps to avoid the ulcers. So now I wear compression stockings if I'm going to be on my feet for a while, I keep my legs up as much as possible, and I always put Renew on my legs every morning and also in the evening if needed. When we travel, the Renew lotion always goes along; I don't want to be without it. It has been a game changer for me.
Whenever I wash my face it always feels like it is tight afterwards. I have tried many creams and lotions but I am limited because of sensitive skin. I had some Renew on my hands one day and decided to rub some on my face. My face felt soft and pliable all day. This is what I use twice a day for several years now and my face feels great and everyone says I look much younger than my age of 66!
Renew lotion has been a life-changing product for my family. I'll share a few testimonies with you. My husband is on many prescription drugs that made his skin extremely dry. I finally convinced him to give our Renew Intensive Skin Therapy lotion a try. When I went to place our Melaleuca order he asked if I'd ordered any more of that lotion and I said I ordered a small bottle. He asked if they made a larger size and I replied yes. He said please order some because I like it. His skin is as soft as a new born baby's skin. He found something that worked, which I knew it would. I had been to the dermatologist for a "whelpy-oozing, itchy rash that appeared on my right leg. I was prescribed an expensive steroid cream that didn't work; it actually made the rash worse and burned my skin. I decided to use the Gold Bath Bar, Renew lotion and Renew Bath Oil. Instant relief, and within two weeks the itchy rash that I suffered with for several months was completely healed. When our now 9 year old daughter was born we took the Renew lotion, Renew bath oil and Koala Pals bath wash to the hospital for them to use on her in the nursery. They happily honored our wishes. The Renew lotion made her smell nice and is also good for diaper rash prevention and the Renew Bath Oil is great for cradle cap. We buy two 20 oz bottles of Renew lotion a month. Renew is 7 times more effective than Eucerin, much less expensive and it works. If you suffer from eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, extreme dry skin I encourage you to give Renew products a try, your skin will thank you.
I am allergic to dogs, cats, hedgehogs, and my husband's freshly cut whiskers, and maybe other things but those are the things that I know of. I break out into a red, burning, itchy mess and Renew lotion is the first thing I grab and the last thing I need to resolve the issue within five minutes. It works every time. I have a bottle or tube within reach everywhere I go.
My fingernails crack and split. I thought it might be heredity or something lacking in my diet. So I looked it up on the Internet, and it said to rub a good quality lotion into them after each time you have them in water for any length of time. I hand wash our dishes and I love long soaks in the tub, so after each exposure, I try to rub Renew lotion into them. No more splitting and cracking, except when I forget! On another note: My hubby has very dry feet that get cracked. When he allows it, it only takes about a week of rubbing his feet every night to get them back into shape. It is always nicer when someone else rubs your feet!
Renew has truly renewed my life. I have three different autoimmune conditions and have struggled with illness for the last 10 years. I have been taking chemo for over a year, and the doctor kept increasing my dose to try to get my psoriasis rashes to go away. I was having a really bad day with nausea due to my chemo dose and my rash was not changing. A friend of mine asked me if I would try a lotion and body wash if she got it for me. I told her that I would try anything. Who would have known that that decision would change my life. After just a couple of days I could see my rashes looking better. In two months the lotion and body wash had the rashes on my legs gone. Chemotherapy, prescription creams and ointments along with light therapy three times a week could not make the rashes better. But all natural non toxic lotion was able to make it go away. Now I have converted everything in my entire house to Melaleuca. I am weaning off of chemo and my other medical conditions are all in remission due to my friend taking the chance on introducing me to Renew. Renew and Melaleuca have truly changed my life and I feel better now than I have in 10 years.
