Sustainable Healthy Living with Arbonne – As a successful cosmetic company, Arbonne believes in a holistic approach to beauty, health, and wellbeing, embracing the connection between a healthier mind, a stronger body, and more beautiful skin.
Its mission for the past 40 years has been to deliver better products that won’t harm you or the planet through availability online and an empowered community of Independent Consultants.
Growing up in the Norwegian countryside, Arbonne Founder Petter Mørck always had a close relationship with nature. This became especially valuable when he started working in the cosmetics industry and learned about what went into personal care products, anchoring his vision to create better options for people and the planet.
Later, through an introduction to direct sales, Petter began to understand the impact of this business model which
provided both personal development for individuals as well as a business opportunity.
In 1980, his pioneering spirit brought him to the U.S. where Arbonne — named after a lush, nature-centric village in Switzerland called Arbon — was born. From that point on, Petter dedicated himself to building a team of Independent Consultants who believed in this same vision, and to this day his original Statement of Purpose lives on.
Thanks to Petter, Arbonne has been a leader in the clean beauty movement since 1980 and continues to innovate using premium ingredients backed by clinical research, complemented by plant-derived compounds that are grounded in science, held to high safety standards, and confirmed by third-party certifications.
They embrace a holistic approach to a healthy mind, strong body, and beautiful skin through a diverse portfolio of skincare, nutrition, cosmetics, hair care and baby products, which are sold by Independent Consultants in the United States, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, Poland, and New Zealand.
Women Talking had the opportunity to try a couple of products in the range and share their findings.
No matter what your skin goal, healthy-looking skin starts with the right cleanser.
Cleansers with harsh surfactants can contribute to dehydration on any skin type — oily, dry, or balanced. This cleanser has been useful for travel due to the fact it is presented in a handy, lightweight pump bottle. As a vegan gel cleanser, it lathers into a delicate foam that cushions your skin as it rids the surface of makeup and impurities. The gentle formula features botanicals like Witch Hazel which is used to soothe, soften, tone, refresh, and revitalise the skin’s appearance.
The SPF 30 mineral face and body sunscreen are formulated with the latest technological advancement in Zinc Oxide to help prevent UVA (skin ageing rays) and UVB (burning rays), so you can enjoy your time under the sun (or underwater!)
This moisturising formula leaves the skin looking dewy with a hint of iridescence — and without the chalky white cast! Plus, Green Tea and Aloe Vera soothe with hydration, so your skin feels as good as it looks.
Having used this product numerous times, I have been very happy with the application and results. It is lightweight and easily absorbed with no sticky residue.
How to use:
Apply liberally and evenly 15 minutes before sun exposure.
Reapply after 40 minutes of swimming or sweating, immediately after towel drying, at least every 2 hours.
