I was excited when a friend introduced me to melaleuca- we only purchase the safest, healthiest, most effective holistic/homeopathic, organic, fair trade, all natural brands that list all of their ingredients on the label. So I was excited to hear that melaleuca may be a good fit for us.
I was disappointed when I made my first order and the products were more expensive than products I normally purchase in local retail shops, and with the shipping fee (which is much higher than typical shipping fees) it was a significant price increase. Then when I received the products there were 2 items that did not have ingredients on them- anyone who is familiar with the crooked labeling laws in the US knows that if you have to call a company to discover the ingredients- chances are they are not the accurate ingredients. The brands I trust place the ingredients ok the label because they are proud of them. However, I wanted this to work because I wanted healthy, safe products with the added perk of making money through melaleuca.
Then, my second month I tried the loyalty learning program - I was sad to see that while I had earned dollars- I still had to spend my monthly minimum- so I really wasn't saving any money :(. The last month I had my membership i was upset to again have to call to inquire about ingredients, and then I wanted to return a product and the offered me to exchange - but I had to pay the shipping for the new product - had I purchased something at natural grocers I wasn't satisfied with - I wouldn't have to pay an additional fee to get a better product. I saw the kids powder supplement has soy and artificial ingredients!!!
That was my last lesson- I can't trust a company that says they are the healthiest safest company around - yet they only have their staff and scientists test their products - so how do we really know they are safe when the people testing them are paid to do so?!?!?! Companies that want honest answers will conduct several studies among several different groups in order to ensure safety and quality.
