Arbonne body wash recalled over fears it could cause infection

People are being warned of a nationwide recall involving a body wash sold by popular skincare brand Arbonne.

A recall notice posted on the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission website says the Rescue & Renew Detox Body Wash has been pulled from sale over fears it could cause an infection in some people.

“The product has been found to contain an unacceptably high level of a Gram positive bacterium, Staphylococcus cohnii, which is an opportunistic pathogen that lives on the skin,” the recall notice reads.


“Staphylococcus cohnii can cause infection in immunocompromised patients.”

The body wash was sold by Arbonne Independent consultants nationwide between August 30 and August 31, 2017.

Consumers have been told to immediately stop using the Rescue & Renew Detox Body Wash and to return it for a full refund.

People can arrange the refund by calling Customer Service on 1800 650 760.
