Flawless Foods….

By | Beauty, Uncategorized | No Comments
BerriesBerries contain some of the most potent sources of antioxidants, specifically anthocyanin, which protects skin cells from free radical damage and combats oxidative stress, one of the main causes of aging. When protected from damage at the cellular level, the skin looks younger for longer.Anything with Omega-3Think foods like sardines, wild salmon, and anchovies. They’re a great source of omega-3s and antioxidants that work to fight inflammation, reduce skin conditions like psoriasis, and help to keep skin hydrated and moist by forming strong cell walls and assist with cell repair. Plus, protein is needed to build and repair skin cells.AvocadosThey’re a great source of vitamin E, B vitamins, potassium, and monounsaturated fatty acids.  They hydrate the skin and maintain flexibility.Nuts and SeedsBoth are rich in Vitamin E, an antioxidant that helps to reduce free radical damage caused by smoke, pollution, and sunlight. They’re a good source of protein, fiber, and omegas. Chia is a great source of essential fatty acids that nourish the skin and help to attract and absorb water for added hydration.TurmericTurmeric contains some of the highest  levels of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties of all foods and spices. Curcumin, the active compound in turmeric responsible for its bright color, is behind the many health benefits attributed to this culinary spice. It protects skin cells from free radical damage, improves concentration, and slows the formation of wrinkles and fine lines.
TomatoesThey have lycopene, an antioxidant that fights off free radical damage, which contributes to skin looking worn and dry.Leafy Green VeggiesThey’re filled with vitamins and minerals including vitamins E, K, and A. Vitamin A supports cell growth and skin-turnover and prevents dry, rough skin. Vitamin K helps to fortify blood vessel walls and helps to reduce under eye circles. Eating foods rich in these antioxidants can reduce your risk of age-related macular degeneration.CucumbersNot only are they high in silica, but they also prevent water retention and reduce swelling and puffiness under the eyes.

Why Rodan + Fields though…..

By | Beauty, Uncategorized | No Comments
Doctors Rodan and Fields are Well Known
Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields are both renowned, successful, Stanford-trained dermotologists who still practice in the San Fransisco Area. They have impeccable reputations and because of the dermatological, medical history with Proactiv®, they are already iconic power players in the skincare industry.
Rodan + Fields Give Their Names to the Company
What is of interest to me is that they have loaned their names to this company, which is not the case with virtually any other direct sales company. No other direct sales company that I know of is named after its owners. By doing this they have put their reputation on the line. They are serious players and frontrunners in the market and no one else even comes close.
Rodan and Fields are the Creators of Proactiv®, the Acne Fighting Solution
Rodan and Fields are the Creators of the popular acne fighting solution Proactiv®. This product was introduced in 1995 through infomercials. Everyone has heard of it. The first year sales was expected to be $13 million. It hit $13 million in the first month!
Proactiv® History
Before going into this market they were told that the acne market was $200 million large. Rodan and Fields felt it was much larger. Turn the clock forward to 2015 and Proactiv® DOMINATES the Acne Market (owning over 80%) and is sold in 118 Countries. Proactiv® is a separate company from the direct sales company Rodan + Fields Dermotology.
Products were in Department Stores for Five Years
Before starting their direct sales model, they were selling their skincare products in high-end department stores like Nordstroms from 2002-2007. During that time, their products became leaders in the clinical skincare market. They say that the real reason for their success there was because of word of mouth advertising. People who tried their products liked their products and told others. They determined that they could do better in a word of mouth advertising marketing environment and decided direct sales was their answer. In 2007 is when they moved into Direct Sales where independant consultant could reap the benefits.
What about the Market in General?
The Anti-Aging market has already reached 3.9 BILLION….yes BILLION. Just in the United States alone. and is predicted to grow signicantly annualy. This is not just skincare, but skincare with a focused part of the market.
Dominating the Market
R+F already knows how to dominate the acne market, and it looks like they are the frontrunner in dominating the skincare market. There is no other front-runner. In 7 shorts years on the market, Rodan + Fields is already in the Top 4 Skincare Brands in the US*, along side Lacome, Este Lauder and Clinique. Mind you, those others companies had about a 50 year head-start to reach that level. *Based on our 2013 numbers.
Anti-Age Market
All of direct selling and network marketing combined globally is not as large as the antiaging movement is about to become.
Clinically Proven
All Rodan + Fields products are Clinically Proven. No expense was spared on the development and testing of this line.
Dermatology Coming to the Bathroom Sinks of America
There is one dermatologist to every 31,000 people in America alone. Rodan and Fields are successfully bringing clinically proven, (not just clinically tested) dermotological products to the bathroom sink.
Skin Problems R+F is Successfully Treating
What skin problems does Rodan + Fields and its products address? Rosacea, sensitive skin, sun damage, psoriasis, dark spots, aging, dark circles and puffiness under eyes, breakouts, scars, eczema. Not just anti-anging. There really is a solution for every skin issue and can be customised to treat any problem. This isn’t about ‘Women and Skincare’…this is about ‘Human-beings finding Dermotological Answers.’

Their basic products include four regimensSOOTH: A regimen for Sensitive, Irritated Skin and Facial RednessUNBLEMISH: Regimen for Acne and Post-Acne MarksREVERSE: Regimen for Brown Spots, Dullness and Sun DamageREDEFINE: For Wrinkles, Appearance of Pores and Loss of Firmness
Nurses on Call
They have a team of nurses on call. Any customer or consultant can call them to confer with them about skincare concerns.
Tools So You Can Evaluate Your Skincare Needs
There is an online assesment tool to evaluate facial skin concerns. It’s called our ‘Solutions Tool’ and is found on every consultants website that walks you through 6 simple questions and at the end, the Doctors recommend the preferred products customized to issues. This way, independent consultants don’t need to be trained dermotoloigsts.
Before and After Pictures
Before and after pictures are everywhere. But the best way to know about the product is to try it yourself. It sells itself and nothing will put a spark in someone like thier own personal tranformation and belief in the products!

Cruelty Free
No animal testing was conducted when creating the products
No Inventory
Every Independent Consultant kit comes with products in which they use in their own bathroom. There is no inventory. No taking orders and them having a trunk full of product or a spare bedroom with products expiring each day they are not sold! There is no meeting up with customers to pass off orders or exchange money. All orders go straight through the website and corporate fulfills and ships the orders.
How Many People Need the R+F Products?
Last time I checked, every skingle person has skin and 90% of them aren’t happy with their skin unless they are using Rodan + Fields! Not everyone needs a peice of jewerly, diet pill or a hand bag. But everyone has SKIN. This is a consumable product that people will use for the rest of their lives. It is not a one time buy.
Trajectory of Going Global
Rodan + Fields is only sold in the US and is launching into Canada in February 2015. This is only the beginning.
Direct Sales Association
Rodan + Fields is a member of the Direct Sales Association. This 103-year-old trade association doesn’t automatically accept everyone who applies and can pay dues. In 2011 the DSA accepted only eight of 59 applications by direct sales companies. In 2010, being only 2 years old the DSA gave R+F two awards indicating that they are the company to watch for the future.
Other Accolades
In 2013, Rodan +Fields won a Stevie Award. To put that into perspective. Steve Jobs was a Stevie Award in 2010 for Apple and Mac Products….that’s a BIG DEAL! We are right along side the BIG DOGS and getting the attention of BIG BUSINESS!
In Profit Soon After Starting
They started in 2007 and by 2008 they were already in profit.
Rodan + Fields Marketing System of Choice
R+F marketing system of choice is direct sales and network marketing using the proven and efficient system of  word of mouth advertising.  Joining with RF is a great choice. You are in good company. 50,000 people will join a network marketing company today somewhere in the world. It is the future of business using a decentralized intrastructure. This allows the independent consultants to earn rerouted profits to award them for marketing the program. Independent consultants not only get to share in the profits we get TAX BENEFITS while the company fulfills orders, cuts check and oversees legal matters.
The Ultimate Meritocracy
Dr. Katie Rodan describes network marketing as the “ultimate meritocracy” which means a system in which persons are rewarded and advanced equally and fairly based on their individual accomplishments.
15 Years Ago vs Now
Do what I did, remove every stereotype and preconceived idea from your mind about what you think marketing and belonging to a company like this is all about. Business building is not like it used to be. It is now a social network and an Internet world, which means we aren’t just building networks we are participating in something that has viral potential. 15 short years ago network marketing was different, but now, because the social media is significantly empowers people, like you and me, there is a new efficiency and effectiveness that has developed in recent years and R+F has initiated a model that fits so well into these new modern times. It’s a Facebook, Twitter and Instagram world and we are already sharing about what we love, where we shop….why not benefit each time we wash our face and reap the benefits are talking to friends.
GROUND FLOOR OPPORTUNITY
Let me break it down for you. Avon is 100 year old company and has 6 million consultants, Mary Kay is a 50 year old company and has 4 million consultants, Arbonne is a 35 year old company and has 1.5 million consultants…..Rodan +Fields is a 7 year old company and has approximately 70,000 consultants >>> out of those 70,000 there are less than 30,000 ‘commissionable’ consultants really working thier BIZ, the rest just signed up for the great discount on products. We are only scratching the surface!
