Re: Concern for the peril of personal-care products

I have found this site invaluable for checking the products I am using or to find a good product. Hope this helps.

Westcoastgirl,

Are you familiar with Arbonne products? If so, what do you think of them?

Re: Concern for the peril of personal-care products

Hi Laurel,

I have not used any of these products but I went to the website I suggested and put Arbonne in the search box. They had rated two of the Arbonne products. One was moderately toxic and the other was good.
