What is Melaleuca?

What kind of product is this? My friend told me this is a natural product. But I've never heard of it or see it selling anywhere...

It is natural products for varies uses. Such as cleaning, mouthwashes, tooth paste, alot of things u use in the household. But is not as harmful as clening products like bleach, window cleaner ect. Check out there website, they have great products but they are not cheap by all means.

Melaleuca is not MLM, it is "consumer direct" people do not re-sell their products, you buy direct from the company and the people who referred you get a commision on what you buy.
The products are top notch and company customer service is great. If you are interested in this type of business, Melaleuca is one of, if not the best system for actually building a stable income. I know many people who make their living, and others who supplement theirs by having built small-large melaleuca businesses.

Products are reasonably priced but not cheap, though they are good quality and healthy, so it depends how u look at it.

I have to agree with SledBC regarding the products. They are expensive but they are quite good.

The only thing I don't like it is the subscription to join Melaleuca, and the fact that you have to buy a minimum $$ value of goods per month through their catalog!

I believe that last it was $150.00 a month? PLUS, if you don't order anything, they will ship you some random order of goods valued to that total, and demand payment?

I dunno...good product, but horrible method of charging and keeping loyalty.

Oh well...if only they sold the stuff at Costco! That would be great!

Cheers!

Wife was on this scam 2 yrs ago.
Everything they make is very expensive, and you have to pay shipping from US.
She was getting vitamins at $150/mth but they would last longer than a month. > :(

Anyone who needs $150/mth in vitamins ought to see a doctor.

There was nothing they sold that can't be bought here, under a different brand name.

How is that not MLM? You refer your friends and get commission on their purchases, who in turn refer their friends and you both receive a commission, and so on and so on....It's just a big pyramid.

Looks like a MLM to me ...

I'm curious, how do people who say/believe it's not MLM discern the difference?

How is Melaleuca NOT a MLM?

*edit*

according to the wiki page, it's basically a MLM with some changes supposedly to combat the typical abuses/characteristics of MLM's.
He .... looka lika MAN!

I tell you every ting!

My mom and a few friends of her also use Melaleuca and they only buy for themselves and not reselling. One thing though is that their product is much better (not sure if cheaper) than Amway. I believe they don't really earn commission for resale, but points to redeem products. There is a minimum monthly purchase of about $40-60. That minimum is so easy for my mom and her friends to achieve because they use their vitamin supplements which were very good as well. They are reasonably price and natural products that are good for the environment.

I have all kinds of Melaleuca's products in my home (my mom just keep buying for me whenever she comes to visit), and I really like their liquid detergent (no scents/sensitive). It's very concentrate and a bottle last me almost a year (I used front load washer if that matters). I also used it with my baby's clothes and it's great.

Except that there are thousands of small shipments of vitamins and floor cleaner, being couriered around the continent. How is that environmentally sound? Maleleuca may be good for the environment, but you aren't because you ship these small packages, from the US.

Frankly, its a lot better for the environment for a trailer load to go to one store, than 1000 cartons going to 1000 addresses.
