Ever since my neighbour introduced me to Arbonne in 2011, I’ve been researching and investigating the products they sell, and what’s in them. If you’re wondering, like I was, if Arbonne’s products are right for you, you have come to the right place.
I’d like to share with you all of the important reasons to choose Arbonne products. After reading this page, you will be much more confident in your decision to purchase any of Arbonne’s products.
Arbonne has been in business for over 30 years. The company was formed because of one man’s passion for “the beauty and perfection found only in nature.” As a result, all of Arbonne’s products are botanically based and created to be pure, safe and beneficial.
Compliance with Cosmetic Safety Regulations
Arbonne adheres to European cosmetic safety regulations, which are more stringent than Canada and the U.S standards.
The two most authoritative and established entities when it comes to cosmetic safety in Europe are:
- The European Union Cosmetics Directive, and
- The European chemical agency known as REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals).
Arbonne has met both the EUCD and REACH standards for cosmetic safety. Arbonne is also compliant with other global rules, polices and regulations. This is stated clearly in their Arbonne Ingredient Policy which you can find at https://arbonne.ca/products/index.asp.
Why is this important?
The European Union Cosmetic Directive (EUCD) protects consumers in a diligent fashion and companies must adhere to all stages of the process to ensure that their products can be released on to the EU market. Companies must notify the EUCD before the product is finalized and made to ensure its safety. After completion of their product, it goes under further review.
The European Chemical Agency known as REACH is equally notable for its role for protecting consumers and the environment. Its role is to assess how the production and use of chemicals can impact human health and the environment.
The FDA (Food & Drug Administration), on the other hand, fails to protect consumers from corporations and companies that make cosmetics. In this capacity, the definition of cosmetics includes products such as makeup, personal care products (shampoo & conditioner, facial wash, hand soaps and tooth paste) as well as baby products.
In this clip by “The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics,” they reveal how negligent the FDA is in protecting the consumer from harm:
“The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics” states that the FDA is not entitled to issue product recalls for cosmetics, and that products are not tested before being released to the market. This means that companies have free reign to put whatever they wish into their products and they don’t even have to label the ingredients on the final product.
Unfortunately, as a result, the unsuspecting consumer is being exposed to a host of chemicals. What I found shocking is that the Food Drug and Cosmetic Act is outdated and hasn’t been revised since 1938. And the craziest part: it’s only two pages in length. It’s no wonder companies can claim that their products are safe for use!
So if Arbonne International passes European cosmetic safety regulations, we know it is a safe brand to use.
Why I like Arbonne
Arbonne is gluten free and all of their products are vegan certified, meaning they are not formulated with animal products or by-products. Arbonne is committed to bring “pure, safe and beneficial” products to their consumers.
Arbonne also does not use any parabens, and their products do not contain any synthetic dyes or heavy metals such as lead. This is especially important for those with sensitive skin who react to parabens and synthetic dyes. I also love Arbonne because they are a green company and have a beautiful makeup line.
