I have recently signed up with Melaleuca. So far my experience has been ok but I have had a couple of minor issues like having a couple things missing out of my initial kit.

When I signed up I was told the these products were non-toxic and I thought great this is what I have been looking for.

My online research has not shown me that these products are non-toxic I could not find Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) on any product except for one. That particular one "Sol-U-Guard Botanical MSDS sheet" is front and center on the Melaleuca site. It is a favorable report.

Unforuantely that is where the data ends and the hear say begins. It would have been great if these products were truely non-toxic but I can understand that peahaps they may only be less toxic. However, I cannot assume that they are even less toxic because I cannot find any available data to make any statement about these products.

I can understand that cleaning products can be somewhat toxic. I can understand that some people may have allergic reactions that may even be life threatening; a bee sting can do that. What I don't like is the secrecy, the hidden nature of the contents of these products. This lack of information has made me hesitant about going forward with Melaleuca.

I could even get behind selling a product that is just as toxic as it's competitors if it works better of has a better price point. I would like someone to clear the air and present the data for public examination. There are many companies that do. Go to http://householdproducts.nlm.nih.gov/health.htm you can find some data there.

If this data exists somewhere I would appreciate a link.

First of All, the backup order plan from Melaleuca works, if and only if you fail to order your 35 product point commitment does it come into play, this is explained during the presentation and should have been explained by the person who invited you as I do. It is better than Auto Ship Programs with other company out there, wherein the same products each and every month is shipped because all they have to offer is a limited number of products. I have heard 'It's HARD to cancel", NOT TRUE! If you decide to cancel your membership, it's really easy to do. All you do is print a cancelation form and fax in your request, why fax?, because of your legal signature, simple! If faxed on or before the 25th of the month, account is canceled for current month and if after the 25th, it will be for the following month. With Melaleuca, There are more than 350 consumable products to choose from. So, Auto Ship Program dont work. As far as the 35 points commitment to get products at wholesale is nothing, just switch stores do your shopping at Melaleuca. I have NOT ordered lesser than 64 points each and every month that I have been with them. Second, like Amazon,  Ebay or any other sites that do business except for companies that issues RMA (electronics), shipping and handling are services rendered or when you return products, you pay. The question is, when you have used up your vitamins for 90 days and decide that they dont work or didnt FEEL any improvement or energy, can you return them? With Melaleuca, YES, up to 90 days warranty, no questions asked. Third, I paid $29.- to join Melaleuca for the promise of non-chemical base products and it did make my family healthier with Natural based products, in fact my grandson who had asthma for 6yrs. was healed just by using their detergent, as per me, for the past 4 yrs, my oncologist or cancer doctor has blood test after blood test done on me because I might have Leukemia or cancer of the blood. And after taking their Vitamins for 4 months, I cried when they told me my white cell count went down to normal to everybody's amazement. Tell me, What price do you put on your HEALTH?   Added to that, the revenue sharing program has helped me, I made over 20K last year,  just for telling people about products that are GREAT and this all happened for a $29 investment, call me crazy, if you calculate even if you spend $70 or 35 points for a year that's only $840 for a year for products that my family uses yearly, CHEAP, and this is not even part of cost of doing business, we came out way ahead. And even if, I didnt make money, just with the deduction I had on my schedule C, because I did signed up also to become an Independent Marketing Executive with them and it was worth it. Listen really hard for those don't have any deductions. Value of products was my main concern; addition income was a pleasant surprise". I'm sorry, I have not made my first Million Dollar yet on Melaleuca but I'm already a big big Winner when it comes to good health for my family and myself, that is KING to me!  I welcome any questions about Melaleuca, their products or even the research I have done, which are now a part of me and my family now as a Blessing'. Call me at 408-771-0296.. God Bless!

Melaleuca Products Toxic- No Way

AUTHOR: tony4wellness - (USA)

POSTED: Thursday, October 06, 2011
Products:

Even before I joined, I too did my homework and found nothing bad about Melaleuca's products. I also saw the favorable MSDS of Solugard and did you know that Melaleuca had to put this one ingredient because EPA. They would not approve it as a Hand sanitizer because of that. So, Melaleuca agreed to include that ingredient but at very least amount to get the EPAs stamp of approval. In fact, the asked their product specialist who was very helpful in educating me about the products and if you want to call them its 800-742-8094. If I was going to stand behind their products and train people in them, I better do my research and which I have done.

Allergy:

I have ask several doctors, nurses and nutritionists is my very own family and they all said the same thing, allergies can happen to anybody. There are people that gets the allergy test that dont even have any symptom are surprise that they are allergic to certain things. I myself am allergic to Artic AIR that comes down to California. My entire body swells up like crazy.

So, very hard to control. But I wont be surprise if somebody says to that they allergic to any of our products.

Business:

I started with them because really because of health reasons; my grandsons asthma gone in 2 months, my mother in law who is diabetic, colon cancer savior, has had 7 heart bypass surgery all one time had no energy all of a sudden stood up, went outside the house and started watering the plants again, the last time she did that was about 5 years ago when she was 78 just because I changed her Centrum Silver with Melaleucas Vitality 6 Vitamins. And for me, I had been in the care of an oncologist for 3 yrs. because I was borderline Leukemia or cancer of the blood.  After drinking also the Vitality 6 Vitamins, I just cried when my doctor said my white cell count went down to normal levels. So do you think I believe in the products, YES, like a miracle to me.

I then started to share the products to family and friends and from my 1st check of $ 61.32 wherein I did not even work for because my sponsor placed some people under me and for my 2nd check that came out to $1974.69 for 2 weeks of referring Melaleuca to people and was able to sign up 14 members. On the 3rd month I was not able to work my Melaleuca business I was out of the country. Melaleuca sent me a Residual Income check of $ 846.23 for doing nothing. That really got me going, not only excited about the products but also about the business. I have helped a lot of people with Melaleuca as a business, some succeed and of course some give up because they cant make $20K on their first month or just arent coachable. The system didnt fail, its them failing themselves and their family. I am a Director 7 with Melaleuca and I got there because of hard work and that is why I am still around because its not one of those get rich scheme. Its a Legal Business that is recession proof for me and I paid $ 29.00 for it.

I welcome any question, I am a Stay at Home Dad, call me at 408-771-0296 and ask for Tony.

Their website is pretty good, try Melaleuca.com

I actually looked at the complaints because someone at church was telling me it was a scam... and I found out otherwise...

Websites

For the ingredients on most of Melaleuca's products, you can go to their website, www.melaleuca.com, and for each product on which you have a question, you can click on the "Label" or "Product Information" tab located below the product. If it's not there, you can call the company at the number the other person mentioned, and request Product Development. They can answer any questions you have about the products.

The book suggested by the other person is also great, as it contains not only the ingredients, but also the research done for those products, and where to find those research papers/results. The most recent edition is titled: "The Melaleuca Product Training Resource." It does not, unfortunately contain the information on the new Attain products, but most products are in there.

There are people who have allergic reactions to tea-tree oil -- both my mother and mother-in-law have it. (Odd, I thought ) However, my mother swears by the products that lower cholesterol, provide good intestinal health and the new Attain products. She calls me regularly to find out of something has tea-tree oil in it, so she knows whether she can try something.

Good luck in your search. :) There's plenty of information available. And the company is very helpful in letting you know.

A few places for you to find the info you seek.

Hello, your support team may have given you this info already but I just wanted to let you know a couple places to look. You can call Melaleuca 800-282-3000 and ask for the product information line. When they get you there just ask any question you would like, about any product or ingredient. They are very helpful. Also if you want the print materials, they have a product resource guide which is I believe 19.99. This doesn't contain any MSDS sheets but it goes into very indepth detail on all the products and lists each ingredient, which you can crossreference with the MSDS. Good Luck to you, I hope you are still enjoying everything!
