Thinking About Choosing Natural, Non Toxic Products?

Every now and then I feel it's important to post articles on toxic chemicals commonly found in every day personal care products. There are so many alternative options today for all natural/organic products and not all of them are expensive either. If you're open to trying natural products, you might be surprised  by the high quality, as it could be even better than the products with toxic chemicals, that you're currently using.

With that, here are 3 must-read articles on avoiding toxic chemicals. I hope you find them enlightening.

Study: BPA, methylparaben block breast cancer drugs

This article was for Father's Day and educating men on toxic chemicals but it's applicable for everyone

Why Women Are Attracted to the Direct Selling Business

Just came across this article from the Direct Selling News on entrepreneurship and women. It's fantastic and the direct sales business is so ideal for women for many reasons! You can read the rest of the article by clicking the link below ... (source: 

A recent article posted on Forbes online by Natalie MacNeil with the above headline asserts that a “quiet revolution is taking shape right now among women,” as they are leaving the workplace to go home—not as homemakers, but as entrepreneurs.

MacNeil writes, “… Women are saying ‘no thank you’ to spending years climbing and clawing their way up the corporate ladder, dealing with corporate politics, and working long days without feeling the overall fulfillment they crave.”

The ability to easily start one’s own business with a direct selling company fits hand-in-glove with MacNeil’s assertions about working women and what they are looking for in an opportunity. Low start-up costs, a fully developed marketing department standing ready to supply catalogs, websites and other materials, and often, generously-funded R&D departments to handle the research are all a part of the package that a woman (or man) activates when enrolling as a new independent business owner.

Enjoy the article!

Verefina Buckthorn Facial Cream: It's Like Nutrition for Your Face

Verefina Natural Sea Buckthorn Anti-aging Facial Cream
One of my favorite anti-aging, all natural facial moisturizers is Verefina Buckthorn Facial Cream. It's so good for your skin it's like nutritious food. What's in it? Water, aloe juice, sea buckthorn seed oil, shea butter, grapeseed oil, apricot kernel oil, calendula oil, pomegranate seed extract, and Omega 3, 6, 9. This is by far the best all-natural, anti aging skin care facial moisturizer I've ever used.

Does this product work for acne-prone, oily skin?

I have oily skin particularly in the t-zone (forehead, nose and chin). I also have mild and periodic hormonal break outs which tend to happen in these areas. I can tell you how stressful it is to find skin care products that actually work for you.

With so many skin care products on the market - how do you know what works for you? Sometimes the best ingredients don't always mean they'll work for your skin because each product is so personal based on the individual and other factors such as diet, lifestyle, etc. The best advice is to try samples first before you buy and see if it works for you.

I can only share my personal experience from using Verefina's anti aging facial cream and it works incredibly well on my skin. I use more on my cheeks and a little less on my oily t-zone. At first I thought it might not work for my oily skin because the cream is rich with anti-aging ingredients. With previous products, this has been a problem for my skin. I'm a true believer and love what Verefina facial moisturizer has done for restoring my skin to its youthful glow. I love it!

Product usage

Verefina facial cream glides on your face silky smooth. I use two pumps, rub them together with my forefingers, and apply them to my cheeks first in circular motions, then applied upward on my forehead and t-zone, and the rest on my neck. A little goes a long way!

Try before you buy

If you're looking for truly natural, anti-aging skin care products that deliver results, I highly recommend giving Verefina facial cream a try. Send me an email Janette at and request to try samples before you buy.

Verefina Review: Direct Selling Business Opportunity to Consider?

If you're reading this article chances are you have an interest in natural, non toxic personal care products. Or perhaps you're curious about Verefina, a ground floor all-natural personal care products company that launched 2012.

If this sounds like you, here's a thorough review on Verefina to consider:

Verefina Products Review

Creamy Lemon Coconut Facial Cleanser and Sea Buckthorn Moisturizer (left side)

Verefina offers many high quality products including: all natural deodorant, soaps, hand and body lotion, immunity oil, baby/kids products and the bestselling skin care set: Creamy Lemon Coconut Facial Cleanser and anti-aging Buckthorn Facial Moisturizer (featured above).

Verefina believes in the value of a TRULY safe and natural alternative to the abundance of toxic commercial products available. Jennifer Lugo, Founder of Verefina, is passionate about creating personal care products that are made from the very best of nature and none of the toxic ingredients. With Verefina's high quality and affordable products, it's easy to limit your exposure to toxins, helping you to achieve beauty, naturally.

You'll be confident to know that Verefina's products are free of parabens, petrochemicals, sulfates, artificial colors and fragrances. And the ingredients are listed under each product in the catalog so you'll know exactly what goes on to your skin.

*Key benefits to customers: high quality, anti-aging all natural products that are affordable.

*Key benefits to consultants: highly consumable products that people use on a daily basis creating great potential for repeat orders and long-term residual income, especially since the price points are competitively priced to attract new customers.

Verefina Business Opportunity

As a consultant - you'll get product discounts and an opportunity to share the products and earn a retail profit. For those considering a home based business, being a consultant offers you an opportunity to sponsor other consultants like yourself and a earn percentage from your team's sales efforts.

However, with Verefina's flexible business plan, you're not required to sponsor and can choose to use your consultant status to buy products at a discount. There are no monthly sales requirements or auto-ship in order to maintain consultant status and enjoy the minimum 20% retail profit.

Other benefits include free products from sponsoring and selling that Verefina runs on a regular basis to encourage growth. It's an added incentive to earn rewards just for working your business.

Why Direct Selling Business?

In a recent announcement from the Direct Selling Association ...

The Direct Selling Association (DSA) today released the results of its Annual Growth & Outlook Survey, which shows U.S. direct sales totaled $29.87 billion in 2011, a 4.6 percent year-over-year increase from $28.56 billion in 2010. (source: MarketWatch)
With 15.6 million sales consultants in the US alone, this figure outpaces the gross domestic product (GDP). Direct sales industry has been known to be recession proof and highly consumable products such as skin care and personal care is one of the most recession-proof businesses to own.

A direct sales business is also flexible and easily fits into anyone's lifestyle. You have all the control when it comes to time flexibility and potential to earn a substantial income however, this is up to your personal efforts.

Low start up cost, risk-free when compared to starting a traditional business, and there is no glass ceiling in direct sales because you're the boss.

Is Verefina Right for You?

If you look at the successful direct sales leaders in this business, you'll find a common theme: they are committed, coachable, enthusiastic, and passionate about their businesses. These leaders spend a lot of time developing their personal growth as well as learning new business skills to be the best team leaders in their organizations. Your personal growth really correlates with how successful you'll be in this business.

Whether Verefina is right for you depends on you. We're looking for people that love all natural products. People who are committed, enthusiastic, and have a strong desire to start a home based business and be a part of the direct selling industry.

Verefina is growing daily with just under 100 consultants nationwide. If this describes what you're looking for email me. I'd love to chat!

5 Questions to Consider Before Starting a Direct Sales Home-based Business

There are hundreds of direct sales, party plan, network marketing companies to choose from - established companies such as Avon, Mary Kay - to ground floor opportunities as Verefina. Where does one begin if you're searching for a direct sales home-based business to start?

Here are 5 questions to ask yourself and consider before starting:

#1 Products and Opportunity

As Robert Kiyosaki, bestselling author of Rich Dad Poor Dad and The Business of the 21st Century says - look for products that people need to use such as consumable products. And a business opportunity that's going to reward you for immediate retail sales and long-term residual income. Highly consumable products offer great potential for repeat orders and residual income.

#2 Product Need 

Do people have a need for your products? Are these products people are already buying elsewhere? Consumable products such as skin care, personal care, candles, food, and nutrition are products people use regularly which offers you the greatest chance for long term success. When people love the products, they'll become loyal, and more likely to become repeat customers.

#3 Business Format

Every company has a business format, a "system" that you'll need to plug in and follow, if you want to achieve success.

For example: party plan, network marketing are both part of the direct sales umbrella, however the party plan business format differs from network marketing in many ways.

A party plan is exactly what it says "party" which means the business format requires you do parties consistently if you want to make a good income. It's important to know the business format before you join because choosing a business format that is not a good fit for you will result in frustration, disappointment, and eventual fall out.

If you're choosing a party plan which is common with jewelry, clothes, home decor, handbags, craft products ... you need to understand that your success requires doing parties consistently and several parties a month. Ask any successful party planner, even the leaders at the top of the company, and they'll tell you they're still partying hard. Of course, if you love to party, then it's the perfect business format for you!

Network marketing on the other hand can be more opportunity-based and the business format relies more on building a "network". That network often involves signing up wholesale shoppers and/or team members.

Direct sales is a combo of the two. My direct sales natural business is a perfect example as it has elements of a party plan meaning that you can do parties if you choose to but it also has a low monthly personal sales volume which is very common in network marketing. This format offers flexibility because you're not dependent on doing parties.

#4 Compensation Plan

It's important to know how you're going to get paid but it's also important not to get hung up on dissecting the comp plan to paralysis. The bottom line is to get yourself into activity and working your business daily and the income will follow.

You need to know the basics of what it takes to be an "active" consultant. What it takes to earn the retail profit. And the monthly volume required to earn from your team members. I have a friend who signed up with a party plan company because she loved the products. She signed up a couple consultants right away but never earned a commission because she didn't realize she needed to sell at least $500 in personal volume to earn from her team. Ask these basic questions FIRST before you sign up with a company.

#5 Business or Hobby?

Plenty of people join direct sales as a hobby, get product discounts, or do an occasional show here and there. But knowing what your financial goals are is important to your success. Some people have a burning desire to make a change. They're looking for a viable plan b and turning to direct sales to create that change.

These people would most likely run their business like a business. Know why you're starting a business, what your dreams and goals are, because these "WHY's" as they say in this business will determine how much effort you're willing to put into your business.

Is the Natural Cosmetics and Skin Care Direct Sales Business Booming?

Are you looking for all-natural cosmetics, skin care, and personal care products? Do you love natural products and looking for a way to use and sell natural products online? Here's a recent quote from the Kline Group ...
The market for natural personal care products has persevered through the recession, posting strong gains around the world. Spurred by growing consumer awareness, better raw material supplies, and wider availability of more affordable products, the naturals market posted double-digit gains ... (source:
According to a recent article on natural market research: Naturals Market Resist Recession, Posts Strong Global Growth, the demand for natural products is booming and here to stay.

The cosmetics and beauty industry has been known to be recession-proof. Even during tough economic times, women will cut back on shoes, jewelry, clothes, but they still need to use skin care, beauty, and personal care products on a daily basis. In direct selling, it has been called the "lipstick effect".

That said, even though women won't stop using personal care products however, during challenging times, women will cut back on the amount of money they're willing to spend on beauty and cosmetics products. Given that this is a highly competitive market people are looking for value - they want quality products at great prices.
Challenging this move to more natural ingredients, the recession forced U.S. consumers to seek out more mid-range, mass-marketed products that provide greater value and cost less (source:
One of the drawbacks from some pals of mine who are in direct sales such as network marketing, their business has been hurt from the high priced products. It's true that women can be very loyal to their skin care products but to a point, until they find another product line that delivers similar results, for less.

If you're like most people who are savvy shoppers and given the amount of product choices available today, online and offline, why wouldn't you want the best quality products at the best price, right? That is exactly how consumers think - they want value, excellent products and affordability!

The good news is that there are a lot of great companies in the direct selling business that offers high quality products at affordable prices. You can find truly all-natural cosmetics, skin care, and personal care products at similar prices to your regular stores. Contrary to what some naysayers might say about direct sales selling high priced items - this is generally more of the case with network marketing companies. The key is to do some research if you're considering starting a natural personal care business. You'll find that not all of them are high priced.

Whether you're looking for natural products as a shopper or considering starting a home based direct sales business, I invite you to take a look at Verefina. People are ready for truly natural, high quality products, that deliver results and won't break their budgets!
