Just because Arbonne chooses to promote & sell it's products via independent consultants as opposed to stores, it shouldn't be a reason not to use their products. Arbonne is 100% vegan certified with no harsh chemicals, parabens, mineral oil, dyes or perfumes. I'm not sure what people have against network marketing but the pure, safe, botanical products speak for themselves. Too bad your missing out.
