If so, it’d be tough to do much better than the products from Arbonne International.
Today Arbonne rolls out its newest line of eco-friendly hair and body products, called FC5.
“FC5? What’s that supposed to mean?”
It refers to the delivery of Fresh Cell nutrients from 5 fruits and vegetables.
In addition to this line (as well as ALL of Arbonne’s products) being certified vegan, it’s also paraben free and comes in awesome eco-friendly packaging printed with no-VOC, vegetable based ink!
Arbonne really went above and beyond when it comes to this new line of products.
The company has been around for 29 years and has ALWAYS used plant-derived ingredients.
Did you catch that? In 29 years, they have NEVER used any animal products or by-products.
I love that this company isn’t hopping on the green bandwagon just because it’s trendy.
No, instead eco-friendliness is built right into Arbonne’s corporate DNA… from the very beginning.
So What Makes FC5 So Special?
The new Fresh Cell Technology is currently excuslive to Arbonne, and they use it to deliver nutrients from 5 key fruits and vegetables directly to the skin… while remaining fresh until they reach the skin.
Here are the 5 key fruits and veggies (and why they work):
- Kiwi – Extraordinary source of antioxidants
- Strawberry – Known for its purifying and toning properties
- Carrot – Soothes and calms, ripe with Beta-Carotene
- Mango – Nuturing and hydrating fruit
- Pumpkin – Moisturizing properties and bursting with Beta-Carotene
The 14 products in the FC5 line are also:
- Formulated without:
- Dermatologist and Opthamologist tested
Arbonne’s FC5 eco-friendly packaging is:
- FSC certified
- Printed with vegetable based inks, so no VOC’s

Full Disclosure and All
Now really quick, in the efforts of full disclosure, my wife and I have our own business with Arbonne.
Because obviously I think they’re the best, safest, most effective products I’ve ever used. If I didn’t, I wouldn’t choose to sell them.
I know I share info about Arbonne too much on this blog… I mean this one time in 2+ years is just totally unacceptable isn’t it?
Arbonne works a lot like Sam’s Club or Costco. You pay a membership fee to shop at a discount.
With Arbonne you can pay $29 to shop at 20% off the reatil price all the time. Period. Every year it is a mere $15 to renew that discount. Even better is that Arbonne does NOT require you to purchase a monthly minimum either.
I love that.
If you know someone who has an Arbonne biz, I strongly encourage you to get with them and try out this new FC5 line.
If you don’t know anyone but still want to try or buy some product, I’d be glad to hook you up. Just email me.
I think every little step toward living green is an awesome one… but eco-snobbery sucks! My goal is to help newbies learn the most important steps toward living green — individually and collectively. Personally, I strive to have as little impact as possible on Planet Earth while I'm here.
