Seasource Detox Spa General Questions
I currently use the NutriMinC? RE9? line of anti-aging products. Should I stop using them and use SeaSource Detox Spa instead? The RE9 line of anti-aging products and SeaSource Detox Spa are two distinct
programs; different results are achieved through their use. First, the skin is a living,
breathing organ. To function properly, it needs to be free and clear of toxic wastes and
build-up, which can cause skin disorders, breakouts and even prevent the skin from
taking in all the good that can be achieved from the RE9 skin care regimen. The
SeaSource Detox Spa line of products helps the skin to receive and respond to all of
the beneficial RE9 elements.
The detoxifying quality of the SeaSource Detox Spa products not only neutralizes
environmental toxins and free radicals, but it also helps in releasing natural internal
wastes that can prevent the skin and body from functioning properly from within. The
RE9 line of anti-aging products is a skin care regimen that fights time and the visible
signs of premature aging effe cts due to environmental exposure, primarily the sun.
Remember, you don’t have to lose these beneficial skin care benefits; Arbonne created
SeaSource Detox Spa to work harmoniously with all of our product lines to help
eliminate surface toxins.
I don’t have 30–45 minutes in which to pamper myself … what products should I use and how often should I use them?
Make time ... you are worth it. Once a week, or even every other week, is all you need
to experience the benefits of the complete and comprehensive SeaSource Detox Spa
line of products. Incorporate the 7-Day Body Cleanse every 30 days. Sign up for
Autoship today so you do not miss a 30-day cycle. If time is a real factor, follow the
Daily Cleansing Express menu: Begin with quick Dry Body Brushing; follow up in the
shower using the Detoxifying Rescue Wash and finish with the Re-Mineralizing Body
Lotion 24H each day. It is strongly recommended that you try to work in a leisurely,
therapeutic bath with the Purifying Sea Soak at least once a week. Remember, your
body is your temple; take care of it and it will take care of you.
Does it matter in what order the products are used?
For best results, we recommend using the products in the order in which they are presented in the SeaSource Detox Spa brochure. However, once you start using the products, you can adjust the order to suit your needs and lifestyle. All products are based on botanical ingredients, so nothing will harm you if you use them in a different order. The key to a successful detox is to use the products according to the instructions, correctly and consistently.
The important thing to keep in mind is that you want to use the products as they are grouped in this order: Stimulate, Strengthen, Support.
You always want to start with dry body brushing and with products that stimulate (5-in-1 Essential Massage Oil, Foaming Sea Salt Scrub, Sea Mud Face & Body Mask, Detoxifying Rescue Wash), then move to products that strengthen (Purifying Sea Soak, Fortifying Hair Mask, Re-Mineralizing Body Lotion 24H ) and always finish with products that support (Renewing Body Gelée, 7-Day Body Cleanse Dietary Supplement).
Hint: There is a label on the back of each product indicating which group it belongs to.
May I get information that shows me how to use the products, step by step? Yes. This is found in your SeaSource Detox Spa brochure, pp. 14–15.
Can I use the SeaSource Detox Spa Detoxifying Rescue Wash and Fortifying Hair Mask every day?
Yes, especially if you are working out in the gym or going to the pool each day. Otherwise, you can replace your daily shampoo and conditioner routine 1–2 times per
week with the SeaSource Detox Spa duo to help remove chemicals found in tap water and styling products from the hair to help deeply condition the hair shaft. Follow the directions on the package for the Fortifying Hair Mask, according to your hair type, as the mask may be used more frequently on drier hair types.
I’ve heard that butylene glycol is a known carcinogen. Why is it used in some of these products?
Butylene glycol is a common humectant and solubilizer used in cosmetic and food preparations. Its safety and usage has been well documented and approved by such agencies as the U.S. FDA, the U.S. EPA and the CTFA. The U.S. FDA has also verified its safety even as an ingestible. The FDA has approved BG as a direct food additive as a flavor solubilizer. It has also been granted several indirect additive approvals. The use of butylene glycol in cosmetics has been reviewed by the Cosmetic Ingredient Review of the Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association (CTFA) and determined safe as
presently used in cosmetics.
Some Consumer Advocates call butylene glycol an anti-freeze, and imply it is toxic
because of its characterization as a glycol. Just about anything added to water is an
anti-freeze. Glycols can prevent water from freezing at 0 degrees Celsius. This fact
does not make all glycols toxi c. Butylene glycol has been examined by researchers and
found to be as safe as many other natural ingredients. It is not a known carcinogen.
How much of each product is enough?
It really depends on the individual using the product, the hardness of the water supply,
the length of hair and the method of application (mesh pouf vs. washcloth vs. hand).
That said, here are some general guidelines you can follow:
• Detoxifying Rescue Wash — about the size of a walnut (2–3+ capfuls)
• Foaming Sea Salt Scrub — about the size of a walnut • 5-in-1 Essential Massage Oil — for the face, about the size of a walnut; for the body,
about the size of a walnut per limb, torso and back
• Sea Mud Face & Body Mask — for the face, about the size of a walnut; for the body,
about the size of a plum per limb, torso and back
• Purifying Sea Soak — one pack (1.65 oz.) per average-size tub • Fortifying Hair Mask — about the size of a pecan, depending on length of hair (start at tips and work up to roots)
• Re-Mineralizing Body Lotion 24H — about the size of a walnu t p er limb, torso and
• Renewing Body Gelée — about the size of a walnut per limb, torso and back • 7-day Body Cleanse — one complete vial of supplement (1 oz.) mixed into 32 ounces of water
• Purifying Sea Soak — one pack (1,65 oz.) per average-size tub • Fortifying Hair Mask — about the side of a pecan, depending on length of hair (start at tips and work up to roots)
• Re-Mineralizing Body Lotion 24H — about the size of a walnut per limb,
torso and back
• Renewing Body Gelée — about the size of a walnut per limb, torso and back
• 7-day Body Cleanse — one complete vial of supplement (1 oz.) mixed into 32 ounces of water
How long should each product last?
It’s hard to measure usage. The usage rate depends on the individual’s frequency of
use, amount of product used and the product itself.
Products can last from seven days (7-Day Body Cleanse Dietary Supplement), to
approximately three months or more, depending on the product.
I am allergic to sulfur and sulfur-derived ingredients. Are there any in these products?
As some algae may naturally contain trace amounts of sulphurated polysaccharides, a consumer who is concerned with any allergy is always recommended to review the product with a physician and/or have an allergy patch test conducted before applying products, to help ensure there is no allergic reaction. Arbonne makes no claims to any of its products being allergy-free.
I am allergic to iodine and iodine-derived ingredients. Are there any of these in the SeaSource Detox Spa products?
As some algae may naturally contain trace amounts of iodine, a consumer who is concerned with any allergy or health condition is always recommended to review the product with a physician and/or have an allergy patch test conducted before applying products, to help ensure there is no allergic reaction. Arbonne makes no claims to any of its products being allergy-free.
I have very dry skin on my legs and arms. Will the SeaSource Detox Spa Re-Mineralizing Body Lotion 24H work better for me than the NutriMinC? RE9? REfinish Hydrating Body Lotion?
Weave both into your weekly regimen. Don’t give up the anti-aging benefits of
NutriMinC RE9! This is your defense against time and the effects of the environment. SeaSource Detox Spa Re-Mineralizing Body Lotion 24H is your skin’s defense against
damaging environmental toxins, while it moisturizes and re-mineralizes. Use NutriMinC RE9 REactivating Body Serum and REfinish Hydrating Body Lotion at night while your skin is in a repair cycle, and use SeaSource Detox Spa by day when it is exposed the most! Helpful hint: Always use the SeaSource Detox Spa Body Lotion after soaking in the bath, as this lightweight, yet powerful lotion replaces minerals lost during the detoxifying process and helps your skin regain ionic balance and harmony.
