Arbonne recommends consulting with your physician prior to using any Arbonne products in conjunction with medical treatment or prescription medication. This would also include anyone with sensitivities to certain ingredients. You may download a copy of the Meet the Product Sheet for the products to present to your physician.

Organic certification refers to a crop-growing process that prohibits the use of additives such as chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, petrochemicals and dyes; the crop seeds and ingredients must also not be processed with genetic modifications, irradiation or industrial solvents. When it comes to organic, Arbonne mindfully selects ingredients for our formulas that are readily and consistently available and sustainable. However, there are some ingredients that are not available with an organic certification. These types of ingredients are often grown in the wild, such as Australian eucalyptus. Based on this, Arbonne concentrates on quality testing of each ingredient and product, irrespective of organic certification, to ensure that it meets our high standards of quality.
