A Review Of The Arbonne International Income Opportunity

May 30, 2008
Arbonne International is a direct selling company that is operated in California, US. They make a line of light quality skin care, color cosmetics, weight loss, aromatherapy and nutrition products that are exclusive to their company. They say they are based on natural and botanical principles.

As I have done some research, I have found that they market through independent consultants that are networked throughout the company. It appears that the cost to become a consultant is very reasonable. The cost for a starter kit is only $29 and the super kit can be purchased for $65.

The company is known for their consultants to earn enough to pay for product, but not much more. There are no territories provided like you have with Avon, so you neighbor may have already sold the neighborhood. You will earn the most by network marketing; this is where your "residual income" comes from. Cold marketing and prospecting will be necessary to maintain your position in the company in order to continue to receive commissions. You won't be allowed to sell online unless you are using Arbonne's web template website and paying them a monthly fee.

Arbonne buys their formulas from labs and chemists that make and sell to other cosmetic companies. They are not exclusive to Arbonne. And Mr. Botiglierri does not work exclusively with or for Arbonne. He actually develops products for several other cosmetic companies. Which means there are many companies with similar formulas.

Arbonne also claims to be a Swiss company when it has been proven that they have never had a license or produced any product there at all. There are many people that write to beauty consultants on the Internet asking about the Arbonne products and if the claims they make are true. Their biggest claim is that mineral oil is dangerous to the skin and this is the reason for high rates of skin cancer in the US.

The company maintains mineral oil interferes with skin functions and delivery systems. Cosmetics-grade mineral oil is not a problem, nor has ever been, for skin. In fact, mineral oil is one of the mildest ingredients for making dry skin look and feel softer. The effectiveness cannot be disputed.

Arbonne International has shown that the success rate is low, and they appear to have a high drop out rate. There is also a lot of competition making it so much harder to be successful. The greatest obstacle in the sales end of things is that Arbonne International products can be purchased online on sites such as Ebay or Craigslist, much cheaper.

And this can happen with any product that we sell in network marketing. The products are sold at such a high price, and there is always someone willing to sell it for less. They may be trying to get rid of inventory. No matter the reason, the problem still exists.

If the product is good, it works and it can sell, then see if it is something you would like to do. Check into the site further and make sure that financially it is stable and its reputation is of good standing. With a lot of commitment and effort, you should be able to make some money at this business. But check it all out before you sign up.
