Comments: For nearly 40 years, Arbonne has been promoting the benefits of botanical-based personal care products. However, not everybody is happy. Last month, Arbonne issued a statement vehemently denying claims made in a class action lawsuit filed by two former independent consultants against Arbonne in the Superior Court of Orange County, California. The plaintiffs, Cynthia Dagnall and Michael Dagnall of Texas, alleged that its business model is a pyramid scheme. Arbonne said it will vigorously defend itself against the suit.
