"The idea to provide skincare products unparalleled in quality and effectiveness developed in Switzerland in 1975, when one man, Petter Mørck, together with a group of leading biochemists, biologists and herbalists, fulfilled his vision and founded Arbonne.
Arbonne skincare products, based on botanical principles, became a reality in the United States in 1980 and are now shared throughout the world through the Arbonne network of Independent Consultants. Building on these same founding principles, the product line has since grown to include both inner and outer health and beauty products that are unparalleled in quality, safety, value, benefits and results."
One thing you may have noticed about Arbonne is that is made up of thousands of individual consultants that all work to sell these great products and make their work dreams a reality. We had a chance to sit down with one of these local consultants to get a little advice about the product line and hear some great stories about the company. We chose Arbonne as our business of the month for January and we had a chance to chat with specialist Lori Williams and ask her a few questions about the amazing skin care line.
Hey Lori! How did you get started with Arbonne?
A: About 4 years ago I decided to start a cleaner more healthy lifestyle after my third child was born. I had looked into a few other companies and their products, but none of them had the pure premium quality I was looking for. Shortly after my sister started using Arbonne products she invited me to her launch party. As I listened to the presentation I had already made up my mind, I was going to start my own business with Arbonne. The founders philosophy, "What we put in our bodies is just as important as what we put on our bodies," stole my heart. This company is now 37 years old and doesn't just focus on one product, but opens the door to getting healthy through their nutritional program, skincare, body care, baby line, hair care, and cosmetics. It gives people the opportunity to shop for Pure, Safe and Beneficial products at the comfort of their own home with a discount. After using the products myself and seeing the amazing results I had peace about sharing Arbonne with others.
Q: What is your favorite line or product?
A: That's a hard question.....
I can't just choose one, I love our nutritional line, RE 9 anti-aging regimen and our Ultra Genius Device.
Q: Can you tell me a story about how an Arbonne product helped one of your clients in a big way?
A: I have a couple that joined our "30 Day to Healthy Living Challenge," the first Monday of January, they are on day 24 and are doing phenomenal! The husband has lost 17 pounds and 3" off his waistline. I asked him how he felt and he reported he has more energy, no more joint pain or bloating. He also voiced that he is 50 years old and has a flat-lean stomach. His wife has lost 13 pounds and 3" off her waistline. She reported that she had headaches daily and that they are becoming less of a problem; she has more energy and feels better. Our 30 Day to Healthy Living Program puts focus on clean eating while removing toxic/inflammatory foods, highly allergic ingredients, additives/preservatives, processed foods and refined sugar. We provide grocery lists and recipes that help replace their old diet with clean/whole foods and healthy fats. This couple fully embraced this 30 day challenge and aren't turning back. They have both said they will continue this lifestyle even after the 30 days is over. I truly believe in this program and the benefits it can have for anyone. With real results like this couple's, it goes to show how a little mind change can lead to a whole body transformation.
Q: What are the steps for someone interested in investing in better skincare with Argonne?
A: If someone is interested in investing in better skincare the first thing we need to do is set-up a consultation. A consultation helps me learn more about the client's needs and expected results. I will put together a regimen based upon the needs of each client and let them try samples for a few days to see if we need to make any adjustments. After a regimen has been decided upon each client has the opportunity to upgrade and become a "Preferred Client." Our "Preferred Client's" receive a free gift, 20-40% discount, and monthly specials.
Q: beyond skincare, can you give us some advice on health and wellness?
A: I truly believe people need to know the ingredients that are in their food source. It can be simple ingredients such as processed sugars, corn, soy, Gluten, or lactose. These popular ingredients could be causing inflammation or hormonal imbalances. This could be the link to internal problems such as skin issues, joint pain,headaches, sluggish feeling, bloating and more. I think as a society that is over fed and under nourished, we need to realize that what we are investing in today, we will pay for tomorrow. We can make simple and easy changes within our diets and lifestyles that can even be done on the tightest budget. My hope is that Arbonne becomes a "household" name. If we can begin to help people with our products, we can help them make better choices and decisions with one simple thing, food. When this change begins to take place then our bodies will begin to heal themselves and hopefully prevent future sickness and disease.
Q: How can a potential customer get in touch with you?
