Skinny Body Care Mission Statement:
From the purest of ingredients, to our top-notch manufacturing facility, to our corporate team that represents an unparalleled level of leadership, Skinny Body Care is passionate about being the complete world class company.
That means, not only are we 100% committed to providing our customers the absolute best quality products on the market, but we also offer an opportunity for individuals to earn income by becoming a Skinny Body Care distributor.
Skinny Body Care has two products, “Skinny Fiber” and “Ageless Anti-Aging Serum.”
Skinny Body Care’s flagship product is called “Skinny Fiber.”
According to the company,
It’s an all-natural weight loss capsule that contains a proprietary blend of cutting-edge ingredients. The product also does a number of other things to facilitate weight loss, including burning fat, boosting metabolism, eliminating toxins, and more.
The new product is called Ageless was launched by the company in 2012. It is an Anti-Aging Skin Cream. The company claims,
Using Ageless you may look and feel up to 10 years younger within minutes. Ageless contains Glycosaminoglycans, Elastin, and Collagen which help to firm and tighten your skin. These key ingredients also help to moisturize your skin by increasing your skin’s hydration levels, essentially “plumping” the skin to help fill in wrinkles and make you look younger.
The Marketing System – How to promote the products
Skinny Body Care (SBC) encourages using the internet to promote their product online. The marketing system that Skinny Body Care has is the powerline system. The SBC powerline system currently offers twelve (12) different lead capture pages you can use to send your prospects to – 4 of them are designed for building the business and the other 8 are product focused.
These lead capture pages are offered for free ( (there is no additional monthly cost for the marketing system). The pages have video integrated into them and are available in different languages (Spanish, Italian, French, Dutch, German, Russian, Hindi, and Mandarin with other languages coming soon).
They also have a completely automated follow-up email system built-in. You don’t have to create or buy your own auto-responder and copy/create the email messages – it’s already done for you
Example: When people join for free after you, the system will notify you that “JOE SIGNUP” just joined after you, and if you do not upgrade by the cut-off date then you will lose that commission from “Joe” if “JOE SIGNUP” decides to upgrade on or before the cut-off date.
NOTE: A lot of inexperienced SBC distributors are spamming Facebook and Instagram walls with crazy make money now claims. Read this post “The quickest way to lose your Real and Facebook friends” before advertise on Facebook.
So where do the Top Skinny Body Care earners get their leads from?
The Top Skinny Body Care earners build their businesses totally different than the masses do. The top earners who are making money in Skinny Body Care are great at marketing, both offline and online. They know how to generate traffic and leads, and then convert those leads into sales, and they know how to recruit the best people into their business.
The teams that seem to be successful are using lead marketing tools in order to train their group on internet marketing techniques and give them the tools and knowledge to generate their own online leads. If you want to become a top producer, you will need a powerful lead marketing system to foster and build a relationship with your prospects.
Not having a lead marketing system is why most Skinny Body Care distributors fail; because they follow the masses and get the same old results.
Can I make money with SBC?
The Skinny Body Care compensation plan is a forced matrix (3×8) plan tied into various membership levels.
NOTE: A network marketing Matrix Plan also known as ladder Plan or Forced Matrix Plan is a compensation plan in which members which are organized in a particular width and depth are compensated when they achieve a set level. The network marketing company can set structure for members to qualify a particular level that may be 3 in width and 8 in depth. In other words a distributor only can introduce 3 as his front-line and a member can earn compensation up to 8th level. A forced matrix means that anyone who joins under you is placed underneath you in a matrix. You can also get spillover from your upline as they fill up their own matrices.
You must be an active Skinny Body Care distributor, you need to maintain a minimum of 50 BV each month in personal volume to be eligible to receive commissions with the SBC Compensation Plan.
To be an active SBC distributor you must:
1) Purchase at least one (1) bottle of Skinny Fiber per month, which costs $59.95 (wholesale cost plus shipping). This can be done by manually placing a product order OR by having an active product auto-shipment setup in your account. You can choose to consume the product yourself or sell it to recoup your costs.
2) Make at least one (1) retail sale from your Skinny Fiber retail website. Achieving your 50 BV this way does not cost YOU anything AND it earns you a $20 retail bonus.
Well this is a comprehensive SBC business Opportunity review, right? Then let’s look at the good as well as the bad.
- Residual income opportunity on product reorders (autoship).
- A variety of different ways you can get paid.
- Low start up cost, less than $100.
- The business is available in many countries outside the U.S.
- Bonuses. In addition to to the above compensation, SBC has multiple bonus pools that are available on a weekly basis to its distributors.
- The company provides a turnkey marketing system at no extra cost .
- Target audience is limited to those seeking to lose weight or women for the anti-aging cream.
- Requires that you have $50 of monthly Business Volume (BV) in order remain active as a distributor and participate in the compensation plan.
- Most of the commissions don’t kick in unless you recruit someone into the company and the residual is tied into themselves bringing people
- Matrix compensation plans can create what is addressed as “spill over, ” which is dependent on the work of those above you (i.e. your upline). This can potentially attract passive – or “lazy” – distributors that will make no effort to generate their business, but instead will simply wait to profit from the work associated from others.
- Some customers have reported that they experienced nausea and stomach pains from the weight loss product.

You can take a tour of Skinny Body Care for free. Just watch the 5 minute movie, fill out the form, and then take the Free Tour.
Once you’re registered as a independent distributor, you can start building your business.
Unfortunately the sad truth is, if your looking at SBC solely for the purpose of the compensation plan and you are an inexperienced marketer without the drive and ambition to make a serious change in your life, SBC probably isn’t for you. I’m assuming that we haven’t personally met yet and that I haven’t gotten to know you. So, I’m going to be pretty blunt here. If you expect to sign up and instantly start to make money without a lead marketing system, let me be the first to tell you … YOU WILL FAIL!!!
The problem is that a lot of people join SBC and then don’t want to do ANYTHING to promote their business. Even though there are built-in advertising opportunities that can do 90% of the work for you, some people amazingly don’t get involved.
Your success as a distributor will ultimately be determined by how many people you can attract to you and your team. Without understanding Attraction Marketing principles, you will always be at a serious disadvantage. If you want the best chance at success in your SBC business, you also need to learn Attraction Marketing principles.

By using attraction marketing, learning a few marketing skills, and leveraging the power of the internet, you can succeed where the other 95% fail.
The Bottom Line
In conclusion, you are doing a good thing researching Skinny Body Care reviews. Make sure you get to know as much about the company as you can before making a decision. But also understand that if you are new to the direct sales and network marketing industry that your success will come from your ability to generate continuous leads in order to make sales. I am not a fan of compensation plans with a matrix design, however Skinny Fiber seems to have a balanced compensation plan that balances out recruitment with a strong sales commission.
In my opinion SBC is just like any other direct sales and network marketing company. If you are interested in the health and wellness industry (losing weight, getting fit, etc) then SBC is certainly an business opportunity worth looking into. Success in network marketing is not a huge mystery. It is just a matter of correct education, proper skills and effective action.
