Arbonne ... A Better Choice. Because these ingredients dont belong on your skin!

Mineral Oil: An oil product derived from petroleum (crude oil), a stabilizing ingredient used in many skin care formulas. Mineral oil forms a film on the skin, blocking the pores and interfering with the normal skin respiration, not only drying the skin, but contributing to blemishes. Mineral oil not only dries your skin, it also leeches out free radical fighters, Vitamins A, C, and E from your skin.

Petroleum (Petrolatum): An oil product that does not penetrate the skin, but sits on the surface, blocking natural respiration, excretion and absorption of other nutrients.

Solvent Alcohol: A colorless, volatile liquid in the form of propyl, isopropyl (petroleum derivatives) or SD 40 alcohol (specially denatured ethyl alcohol). These strip the skin of its protective acid mantle, drying the skin.

Soap and Acetone: Dr. Bruce Hensel reported on Day and Date that skin care products that strip (mainly soap and solvent alcohol) do much more than cause skin problems; they leave the pores exposed, allowing bacterial growth in the pores, which is where these harmful elements enter the blood stream. Soap strips the skins protective acid mantle. It takes the skin over 24 hours to rejuvenate itself after using soap or solvent alcohol. Soap and acetone are also very drying to the skin.

Lanolin: An oily excretion of sheep, a common lubricating ingredient in skin care formulas. Extracted from wool, it can be a cause of allergic reactions in sensitive people.

Collagen: An animal product added to cosmetics as a moisturizing agent or injected directly into the skin. Collagen molecules are too large to penetrate the skin and can therefore clog pores.

Dyes, Perfumes, and Harmful Ingredients: Artificial ingredients found in most cosmetics. Animal testing has been used to determine safe toxicity levels. Can often cause allergic reactions in many people.

Animal Products: No animal or human products or byproducts are used in any Arbonne products! If a company does not say that they do not use animal products, chances are, they do.

Preservatives: Arbonne has less than 1% chemical preservatives in its products; you get more of what you want on your skin!
