Hi everyone, I am a mother of 3 kids (6, 41/2 and 2 years old.) I have had ichthyosis my whole life. Not too severe, but severe enough that I always wanted to cover up my arms and legs as a kid. My legs still get scaly and my arms and hands look like alligator skin until recently! My cousin introduced me to Arbonne a few months ago and I have tried every perscription med. lotion to over the counter stuff and I can wholeheartedly say that I have fallen in love with Arbonne's products and now I just want to tell everyone! I have helped children with severe eczema to adults with severe psoriasis. Arbonne's philosophy is Pure, Safe and Beneficial. Their products have to be all 3 or they don't manufacture it. The products are hypoallergenic, ph corrects and formulated without mineral oil which is so horrible for one's skin, little did I know a few months ago! Mineral oil is an occlusive oil (motor oil refined 7 times and fragrance is then added which is a known irritant to skin). Mineral oil is a cheap filler added to skin care products which initially makes your skin feel great but is actually really bad for it. I always put baby oil on my skin (mineral oil) after showering for years. Mineral oil acts as a plastic sheeting to your skin and halts natural perspiration, clogs pores, dosen't let anything beneficial enter the skin and leaches out vitamins and nutrients from your skin. I now use Arbonne's baby oil (which are all natural oils) after showering and it penetrates so deep within my skin and has helped tremendously. I have always had very dry cracked feet as long as I can remember and I have used Arbonne's Body Serum and Lotion on them and the cracks are gone. There are so many other beneficial products the company has as well. I feel it is my mission now to help others with their skin from normal skin to the severly sensitive. I now have become a consultant with Arbonne and love what I do. Although there may never be a treatment for ichthyosis, Arbonne's products definitely help heal from the inside out. I would love to send some free samples to whomever may be interested. I have everything from the whole baby care line to other individual samples. You may just have questions initially, so just let me know!
All the best,
Arbonne Independent Consultant
