"The Cancer Prevention Coalition released a statement on June 17, 2002 stated that mainstream cosmetics and personal hygiene products pose the highest cancer risk, due to exposures, to the general public-higher than smoking."
Unfortunately, this is due to the fact that the USA has no regulations over this industry. Mineral oil, a petroleum product and occlusive oil as well as cancer causing, costs about 5 cents/gallon and is used as a cheap filler in over 95% of the skincare products in this country. It is illegal in Switzerland where Arbonne's formulations are developed! On the other hand, plant essential oils which are costly, are healthy and beneficial for you.
Also, animal products, found in many costly cosmetics and personal care products in expensive department stores, are obtained from rendering plants where dead and sometimes diseased animals are disposed of. All Arbonne's products are certified Vegan, even their nutritional supplement capsules!
Arbonne is not just another skincare company but offers us a healthy alternative in personal care products, herbal remedies, nutritional supplements and color cosmetics. The fact that we have chosen to use their products could change our life as well as our skin!! Thanks for taking the time to read this! Love, Kathy
