Forever Aloe Vera Gel has changed.

Noooooo, I hear you cry.  Not the Aloe Vera Gel, that iconic yellow bottle which has been the best selling product for Forever Living over the past 40 years.

Touch of Forever Pack featuring the old Bottles

But yes – it is time to change.  The iconic (plastic) bottles are soon to be no more, being replaced with new Tetra Packs made with recyclable materials.  To fit in with Forever’s ethos and code of practice the changes need to be made to environmentally friendly packaging.

But what about the Gel – how has that changed?

Our new aloe vera drinking gels now have an even purer aloe content. Aloe is great for skin, the immune system and it’s an ideal digestive aid, and now this purifying gel also contains vitamin C. Vitamin C contributes to the normal function of the immune system and to a normal energy-yielding metabolism.

NEW Forever Aloe Vera Gel

Our aloe vera is cultivated on fertile soils in a climate that enjoys over 2,000 hours of sunshine a year, and it’s even been certified by the International Aloe Science Council for its purity. This new drinking gel is as close to the real thing as you can get, boasting 99.7% inner leaf aloe gel, lovingly extracted by hand so that you can experience the true power of nature. Aloe is great for skin, the immune system and it’s an ideal digestive aid, and now this purifying gel also contains vitamin C. Vitamin C contributes to the normal function of the immune system and to a normal energy-yielding metabolism.AloeVeraGelTetrapak-EU

NEW Forever Aloe Berry Nectar

Enjoy pure aloe infused with delicious cranberry and apple. Aloe is great for skin, the immune system and it’s an ideal digestive aid, while added fruit gives this drink a sweet and tangy flavour. Added antioxidant vitamin C also contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. These amazing ingredients, plus 90.7% pure inner leaf aloe vera gel, makes Forever Aloe Berry Nectar a powerful choice.AloeBerryNectar-EU

NEW Forever Aloe Peaches coming soon

Why wait for summer to enjoy the flavour of sun-ripened peaches? Now you can enjoy that peach taste any time with Forever Aloe Peaches, a smooth and fresh drink that’s enhanced 84.3% pure aloe vera gel with natural peach purée and vitamin C. Like all our aloe gels, this refreshing and fruity alternative is a brilliant digestive aid that helps support immune function and skin health.AloePeachesEU

These Gels are each £22.27 per bottle and are available from my online shop, or you can order in person if you are in the Northants or Milton Keynes area. Just use the Contact Me form to get in touch.

Start Your Journey Pack

In the past when you joined Forever Living we would fondly talk about the BOB.  Not just because Bob Parker is country manager here in the UK, but also because the box you bought to get started on your Forever Living journey was called the Business Owner Box.

But we have a new Start Your Journey Pack launched in February 2018 which replaces the BOB.  The new pack is available both through the online application form (Sponsor ID 440 100 686 316- Alison Mead) and also through our paper-based application form, which you can request using the Contact Me option above.

What is in the Box? Start Your Journey Pack

Why Buy the Box?

The box has a fantastic selection of some of the most popular products from Forever Living, but also has all the literature you need to start your new business, as well as a training brochure to go through with your sponsor.

You can’t expect to run a business unless you are familiar with the products, and it is hard to sell products you have never used.  The box is designed so you can open it up and start using them as soon as they arrive, and share them with others in ways you will learn in your initial training with your sponsor.

You will also get a discount of 35% and a step Forever’s Marketing Plan ladder to Assistant Supervisor with your purchase.  The new box is £199.75 and is also worth 1.177 case credits.  Chat to your sponsor if you don’t know what this means.

Thinking of Joining Forever Living?

If you are thinking of joining Forever Living and you want to find out more, the best way is to just get in touch and we can have a chat either online or on the phone.  Remember, you can’t change your life if you don’t change your thinking, so give it a go, what have you got to lose?

UK Trading Standards Statutory Warning

”Forever Living Products are a very proud & ethical company who pride ourselves on good practice. It is illegal for a promoter or a participant in a trading scheme to persuade anyone to make a payment by promising benefits from getting others to join a scheme. Do not be misled by claims that high earnings are easily achieved”


Update on MIT

Back in February 2017 I posted about changes in EU regulations concerning Methylisothiazolinone (MIT) in our leave on skin products.  This legislation is now changing again.

The New MIT Legislation

In July 2017 EU legislation was passed requiring Methylisothiazolinone (MIT) to be reduced to a specific percentage in all “rinse off” skin care products.  Forever has gone one step above and made the decision to completely remove MIT from all of their products. MIT is not considered to be harmful.  The background for the new formulation criteria of this ingredient in rinse-off cosmetic and personal care products is due to an “increased incidence of allergies” in some user.

The EU has determined that rinse-off products that contain MIT should be removed from sale by April 27th, 2018.

You can watch this video which covers Forever’s ethos on the ingredients we use in our products.

How does this affect your favourite products?

Forever is working to transition all affected products to new formulas by the stop sell date so that you will have no interruption in the supply of your favourite products. Some products, however, will be discontinued once the stock is depleted to make way for exciting new products currently being formulated in our 40th year of business.  The table below shows the list of products to be discontinued.

Discontinued products

Discontinued Products

Look out for future blog posts about the exciting reformulated products as they become available in the UK.  Favourites that I am looking forward to are the Aloe Bath Gelee, the Sonya Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner, and the Sonya Volumizing Mascara and Precision Liquid Eyeliner.

Joining Forever Living in India

Forever Living is a truly international business, and once you join in your home country you can then build a retail business or a team in any of the over 150 countries where Forever have been given the approval to operate.  This means that if you have friends or family in another country, you can introduce them to your new business and support them in building their own business in their home country.

Every company has slightly different rules in how they operate, so in this post I’ll tell you about joining Forever in India.  There are particular India specific rules and regulations which are different to most other countries which you need to be aware of.

Signing up as a Forever Living Distributor in India

There are 2 options available.  If you are joining with a distributor who is based in India or visiting, then you can fill out a Business Owner Application Form at any one of the many Forever Living offices in India.  This form needs to be signed by both the recruiting business owner and the new applicant.  The applicant also needs to have a Self-attested Proof and a copy of the PAN card and to place a minimum order of INR 1000/- (including taxes) to become a new active business owner.

The 2nd option which I use as a sponsor who cannot personally visit an Indian office is to direct the applicant to and click on Join at the top right-hand side of the page. You must have the 12 digit sponsor ID ready at this point for the form.  If you want me, Alison Mead, to be your sponsor then you can use the ID 440100686316.  This form can then be printed and signed just by the application (the sponsor does not need to sign) and sent to your local office with the same support information listed above (the Self-attested Proof and a copy of the PAN card).   In this case, the initial order is not required when you send in your application, but it needs to be made before you become an active distributor.

Make sure if you are joining in India using either method you fully read all the terms and conditions on the joining forms before signing up.India Joining form

Sponsoring in India

There are strict foreign exchange rules applicable in India.  Bonuses generated in India can only be paid into Indian bank accounts, and you need to adhere to Reserved Bank of India (RBI) rules to remit monies abroad.  In effect, this means if you are based outside of India and build a team in India you cannot have any bonuses paid to you in another country without registering as a company in India first.  But you can still benefit from the case credits your team in India earn for your promotions within the business.

If you plan to build a large team in India then the head office there will send you full information on how to best follow the process to benefit from your bonuses generated in the country.

Need more Information?

If you want to learn more about being a Forever Living Distributor in India and how the business works, then take a look at this New Distributor Pricing Pamphlet for details. You can request information about where the local offices are in the country from the India head office, Forever Plaza, 74 Hill Road, Bandra West, Mumbai – 400 050 or email the head office at where the staff are incredibly helpful and supportive.

If you are looking for a sponsor then please Contact Me and I can put you in touch with my team in India or answer any questions you may have.

40 Years of Getting it Right *Competition*

Next year Forever celebrates its 40th birthday and to honour the occasion, they will be launching a New Year campaign called ‘40 YEARS OF GETTING IT RIGHT’. The campaign will run throughout the month of January and will revolve around our flagship and founding product, Forever Aloe Vera Gel. This gel has literally impacted the lives of millions of people – Forever got it right in 1978 when it was first introduced to the market, and 40 years later, they are still getting it right!427566_323028404422414_219087814816474_902641_18814447_n

The campaign will encourage you to join us in getting it right by taking a daily shot of aloe throughout January. We know that Forever Aloe Vera Gel’s unique formula is packed with so many nutrients, beneficial properties and 96% PURE aloe, that the impact it can have on an individual after just one month of consumption is astounding.

The campaign will operate on social media so make sure you keep an eye on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, as we will be sharing aloe facts, tips and encouragement to help motivate you. A competition will also form an integral part of the campaign. The winner will receive an IPad and a C9, second place will win an IPad and third place will get a C9 programme. To be in with a chance of winning, you will be invited to submit a video or image of yourself taking Forever Aloe Vera Gel and uploading it to social media using the hashtag #AloeChallenge. We would love it if you could take part in this challenge.

We will be launching this competition at 10am on 1st January 2018 and it will close at 11.59pm on 30th January 2018; the winner will be announced on 31st January 2018 by Forever Living Products. Please be aware that participants only need to submit one photo or video linked to the hashtag to qualify for the competition, but they can, of course, post more if desired. The full terms and conditions will be available on request on 2nd January 2018.383477_245805568851936_100002674843798_441152_222950840_n

If you already drink Aloe every day like I do then make sure you join in by posting your own pictures and videos.  If you would like to participate and try Aloe for the first time then get in touch via the Contact Me form with the subject #AloeChallenge and Alison will get in touch about how you can order your bottle.

To find out about which flavour of our Aloe drinking Gel is best for you then take look at my previous post Which Aloe Gel is Right for Me.
