Not necessarily required, however applying the Remarle Body Butter (thick formula) or Body Lotion (thin formula) immediately after you scrub will provide for for the ultimate skin softening experience so that the epidermis can absorb the emollient (butter or lotion) deeper into the skin leaving it softer for longer.

Science Behind the Formula
Safflower Oil contains 78% linoleic acid which has the ability to stimulate and regenerate new skin cells, boosting the quality and appearance of your skin.
Vitamin E is an antioxidant that protects and repairs your skin.
Sugar is a natural humectant, meaning it draws moisture from the environment into the skin. So when you apply products with sugar or sugar derivatives, they’ll actually help hydrate your skin and keep moisture within.
Additionally, sugar is a natural source of glycolic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid
(AHA) that penetrates the skin and breaks down the “glue” that bonds
skin cells, encouraging cell turnover and generating fresher,
younger-looking skin. Glycolic acid is typically used to treat
sun-damaged and aging skin.
Finally, sugar’s small particles make an excellent topical exfoliant, and are used in a number of body and face scrubs to exfoliate dead surface skin cells and reveal the glowing, healthy-looking skin underneath. Sugar scrubs also have a few benefits over salt scrubs. For one, small sugar granules are generally gentler than salt, which can cause microscopic tears in the skin; two, because of sugar’s natural humectants properties, these scrubs are more hydrating than salt scrubs, which can strip skin of natural oils.What should you exfloiate?
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.
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.
