So what is Norwex all about?

Are you asking the question too? Maybe you have heard the word Norwex mentioned by a friend, or seen it on a mothers forum. Maybe your friend has invited you to a party and you are currently doing your own research? Maybe you are looking for a side hustle, something different to do or work? WELL for whatever reason… I’m glad you have found me! My name is Rachelle Potter, I’m a Senior leader from Sydney, Australia and have been using Norwex for almost 6 years. I have a team all around Australia and New Zealand (who I ADORE!) & can’t believe the company I stumbled upon back in November 2012. I have 4 awesome children who now know how to clean a whole house with no chemicals- fast & easy! I wrote an article on the Norwex basics here, you may find that helpful but I encourage you to watch the video below to see for yourself!

So I LOVE to do Facebook parties and to help people “SEE” what Norwex can do, I often make videos & side note: I actually don’t like to clean in general- Norwex does make it FASTER but when I make a video WHILE I clean, it means I get to show people how awesome it is and it doesn’t “feel” like cleaning haha! Check out my Facebook page (& follow along)

So what was I saying? Oh yes- videos… I have made this VERY extensive 5 minute video with SO MANY DEMOS so you can “see” what Norwex can do! If I can help at all, answer any questions- simply contact me & love to help! Love to purchase anything? Simply head along to my Norwex Shop!

What is Norwex like, really?

My dad would say Aussies have an inbuilt “crap detector”, can I say crap on my blog? Um… I guess I have! LOL. When I chat to others about Norwex- so often I hear “really?”, “what’s the catch?”, “tell me the truth”… or lines similar to this. Either when I talk to people about how easy and effective it is or when they are thinking about the business opportunity. I just wanted to address this in a post, feel free to connect with me if you’d like to hear more.

My crazy kids!

I’m a mum of 4 children and I absolutely love how Norwex works around my family, which is key for me. I love that I can go to their assemblies, sports days, be home when they’re sick and take holidays when I want. I now have a team of over 150 consultants, some who do parties and earn as much money as they like and a bigger proportion of consultants who buy wholesale for themselves and supply their friends and family with Norwex. So what is Norwex as a company like? It definitely has a no pressure culture that’s for sure. I’ve been in another party plan, which really did not- so I know the difference. People honestly can use their Norwex account how they would like too. The minimum to stay active is low- only $275 retail in 6 months, also great. Getting 32% off your own products or keeping it as your commission, also great. Your account is easy to maintain when people join up with the intention to convert their homes to Norwex- the consumables (eg. laundry powder, dishwashing liquid, hand soap, dishwasher powder, skincare) as well as everyday cleaning items. Trust me though, it really does work and you will find yourself talking to others about it and giving it as gifts too.

I actually never joined Norwex to sell much. I did my first party as a favour and was seeking information afterwards as I absolutely fell in love with how well Norwex worked. I was totally floored by how inexpensive it was to join up and in the starter kit was the dust mitt which I didn’t get in my over $500 worth of host rewards (and I really wanted it!). I was sold, sign me up! What has eventuated since Nov 2012 is crazy- the beautiful people I top 10 sales 2014have met, the friends I have made- at parties, on my team (I love my team!) and other Norwex gals, the recognition for partying, the travel- holidays on the Gold coast, NZ in February next year, a cruise which I earned for free and Disneyland is the goal in 2015, free and discounted products, personal development, the income and so much more.

Norwex really are a company of integrity and I am just so thankful that is crossed my path. So thankful, I am now AWARE of the chemicals and exposure we were having on a daily basis and that converting to Norwex saves our health now and in the future. So thankful my cleaning is now FAST and easy, so thankful for the money it has saved us too- not even going down that cleaning aisle ever, not even for paper towels. So thankful for the income it has brought into our family and what that means on a daily basis. Funny, I often say to people, “you know how the longer you are with an organisation or the higher you move through leadership, the more flaws you see, the more problems there are?” well I can honestly say, this is just not

Some of my team at conference, love them!

true for this company. Their key values are intergrity, trust and respect and this flows from the top to the bottom. A company who if they make an error sends out an email of apology, a company who listens to feedback and offers support, a company who had an issue with a batch of one of thier products and have pulled the WHOLE lot to work out why.

Please connect with me if you have any questions and I can supply you with more information. What support can I offer you? We have an online facebook group- a great place for your questions and connecting with others, a Norwex website with videos, downloads and resources, our wider team ‘gems’ website which has so many fabulous templates, information, resources, videos and training (& more), monthly webinars and training around the country. Wherever you are located, we can get information to you. You can engage in what you choose you’d like too.

What is Norwex?

Norwex improving quality of life

So What is Norwex?

Up until late 2012 I would of said, “Nor-what”??

Below you will find some info about Norwex, if you are after more practical ‘what product does what’ then please head to my Norwex essentials post here.

 Let me start with a splash of history…

It all started in 1994 when the Norwegian operation, “cleaning without chemicals” was born. In 1999 “Norwex”- “The Norwegian Experience” spreads to Canada with the Norwex Enviro products. In 2007, Norwex introduced a new microfibre and microsilver and 2008 saw Norwex Australia officially opened (yeah, Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi!!”). In 2011, Norwex expanded their products, introducing their personal care products.

And so the Norwex mission statement expanded to:

 “Improving quality of life by radically reducing the use of chemicals in personal care and cleaning”

In 2014 it simplified to become:

fb banner mission statement

 What about chemicals?

In the last 50 years, more than 80,000 new chemicals have been created. Recently an article was published by Choice Australia (if you click on the link the article will open in a new window) it was about known and common chemicals to avoid in household and personal care products which have been linked to causing some cancers and reproductive abnormalities. It is a really scary list and one that confirms for me the absolute rightness that I be involved in a company that does indeed “strive to improve quality of life rather than standard of living”. Most of the chemicals we are exposed too, haven’t been assessed on how they impact on human health. And there are growing links to chemicals and things like asthma and allergies as well.

Over the next little while I will go into more depth about chemicals, be sure to sign up to my email so you can stay informed.

I love what I read from our Chairman, in the inside cover of our catalogue,

“Our vision reaches far beyond making a profit. Norwex goes above that limited horizon with deep respect for the value and beauty of all life and a healthy planet. We are committed to making a powerful and positive difference in the world we live in and the lives we touch”.

 SO HOW IS NORWEX DIFFERENT?

All of our microfibre products carry a 2 year warranty AND everything you buy from Norwex carries a 60 day money back guarantee. I find these two policies amazing and shows me how Norwex stands behind their products.

 Microfibre

Norwex microfibre is 1/200th the size of a strand of human hair, one of the most innovative products in the cleaning industry today. Here’s an interesting fact, in each Norwex Enviro Cloth there is approximately 2.9 million metres of microfibre! You can use the cloths dry to dust or wet to clean. Most of the cloths have antibac micro silver added at the pulp stage of manufacturing.

The cloths include ‘Bacloc’ technology

The micro silver is an antibacterial agent for self-cleaning purposes only. The agent is solely designed to inhibit bacterial odour, mould, and/or mildew growth within the product.

What does this mean for cleaning?

There is no need to use harmful chemicals while cleaning, only water! The  microfibre lifts the dirt, grease and grime into the cloth and off the surface. Surfaces are left free from everything- cleaned, polished, and smear free.

Personal care

I touched briefly before on chemicals. The personal care range uses the bacloc technology in the microfibre in products such as the suede make up removal cloths and body cloths. The ingredients in the body and skincare products don’t contain any of the ‘nasties’ (see below and in the article link above) rather ONLY ingredients that are natural and organic, not synthetic.

Some ‘nasties’- Mineral oil and silicon; Synthetic emulsifiers like PEG (polyethylene glycol); Viscosity controlling agents like Carbomer; Preservatives such as formaldehyde releasers, parabens, or phenoxyethanol; Synthetic perfumes; Synthetic dyes; and Synthetic solvents like propylene glycol.

Have a look at the products you use and see if they have any of these ingredients…

What does this mean for your personal care?

Ingredients that are pure and safe for the environment means they are more gentle on your skin. This promotes better quality of life and helps to reduce the damaging effects of toxins. They are a beautiful range and since my ‘switch’ to Norwex have only been impressed and amazed at the results.

And you know what?

If a product doesn’t ‘agree’ with your skin, and even natural ingredients can react on some sensitive skin, then you have 60 days to return your product to the consultant you bought it from and either try something else or get your money back!!
