After a fabulous night in Santa Monica, the following morning myself and Keil got up early to drive back down to Orange County. We had booked a tour at Arbonne’s Home Office which is in Irvine. We’d not been able to get in whilst we were staying in the OC earlier in our trip so decided to go on our way to Palm Springs. You can watch my vlog from the tour here.
Fortunately the LA traffic was kind to us so we arrived on time, ready for our tour. Both myself and Keil are Arbonne Independent Consultants and had been in Las Vegas a few weeks before for Arbonne’s Global Training Conference (GTC). It was great to be able to visit the place where everything happens!
After arriving in reception and taking a few photos we set off on our tour which was lead by Stephanie. We were able to explore the whole distribution centre which certainly is very efficient. As Arbonne offer personal care items and nutrition products everything has to be clean and safe for the consumer. We watched the boxes getting filled and sorted ready to be sent out.
We were taken to the Product Development area which is all top secret so we weren’t allowed to take any photos. We saw the lab where all the amazing products have been made. We were also fortunate to bump into Dr Peter Matravers. Dr Peter is the chief formulator and scientist of all Arbonne products. It was lovely he took some time out of his day to talk to us. At GTC the new Arbonne Ultra was launched which is Arbonne’s first device. There was such a great demand for it, the pre-orders far exceeded the first 3 months of projections!
One of my favourite things to see was an Arbonne vending machine for the home office staff where they can get some of Arbonne’s nutrition products! It would be great to see these everywhere. Of course, we had to have our favourite chocolate shake to try the machine out.
The tour finished with the NVP wall of fame which is a corridor full of photos of Arbonne’s National Vice Presidents (those who have reached the highest level within their business). It was great to see so many pictures and visualise our own photos on the wall too.
We had a great time touring Arbonne’s Home Office. It was then time for the next leg of our road trip which was to grab our hire car and drive to Palm Springs!
