Arbonne Recalls Seasource Detox Spa Foaming Sea Salt Scrub

Npros.com | 9/13/2009

Arbonne International has issued a voluntary recall on one lot of its Seasource Detox Spa® Foaming Sea Salt Scrub. The recalled products were manufactured by a third party and distributed nationwide through Arbonne Independent Consultants. The product comes in a 6.8 fluid oz white tube and is identified with a lot number on the crimping at the top of the tube. The Seasource Detox Spa Foaming Sea Salt Scrub products affected by this voluntary recall are ONLY from the following lot number (with shipping dates ranging from March 28, 2008 to July 15, 2009): Z928

This voluntary recall was initiated by Arbonne as a result of discovering the presence of Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteria in the recalled lot. No other lots are affected. The organism Pseudomonas aeruginosa may cause dermatitis, soft tissue infections, bacteremia, and a variety of system infections, particularly with users who are immunosuppressed. Because the Foaming Sea Salt Scrub is used to exfoliate the skin’s surface, there is a possibility that inadvertent introduction of the tainted product directly into any skin abrasions could result in infection.

Arbonne International in the Tribune

The Tribune | 5/28/2008

Arbonne gets positive mention in this tribune article:

...Health and wellness are two of the fastest growing businesses in the economy today. Magazine, TV ads and now reality programs show how to get a nip and tuck, a chemical peel and how BOTOX can make a person look years younger. Why the attention on how to look and feel better all of a sudden? The answer is very simple – Baby Boomers. The Baby Boomers are aging and want to look and feel better, and are willing to pay for it and even sometimes endure radical procedures to make it happen.

But there is an alternative, a health and wellness company that is quietly slipping into the homes in America and is addressing these issues in a pure, safe and beneficial way. That company is Arbonne International Inc. This 28-year-old company was founded on the basis of promoting health and wellness through the most pure and positive methods using cutting-edge technology. Since the launch of their incredible NutriminC RE9 anti-aging line in 2003 and most recently the new SeaSource Detox Body System, the company has experienced exponential growth. They have six product lines that are all strategically placed within the health and wellness industry and they are delivered through a business model that is also exploding across the country right now. That is network marketing. People are tired of going to the mall or grocery store and buying products that they know little about. Network marketing allows consumers to receive personal attention from trained consultants who can educate them in any of the six product lines that Arbonne features...

As a result, the deployment of activities in the Canadian market holds particular significance for us, as it represents the first phase of an international expansion which is planned to unfold over the coming years," added Mr. Crowley.

"The official arrival of Arbonne in Canada stems from the growing demand for the company's high quality products by Canadian consumers," explained Stuart A. MacMillan, Managing Director of Arbonne International Canada. Arbonne's success in the United States has naturally crossed the border over the last few months and, as a result, we already have more than 40,000 Canadian Independent Consultants, primarily in the western region of the country. Our objective in the coming year is to expand our activities across the nation," explained Mr. MacMillan. "This deployment will be done in phases and should be completed by the end of 2007."
