Melaleuca = Green????

Adrienne - posted on 01/19/2010 ( 8 moms have responded )




Since joining COM I have been bombarded with people trying to get me to sell Melaleuca. Most of them marketing it to me as a "green" product line. IF you do some research it is NOT a green product. They use sulfates, dimethicone, parabens, and a form of formaldehyde! I was wondering what your thoughts were on this?

Adrienne, please site your source of information. If you are going to make these kind of statements, please back them up.

You make yourself no different than you claim the company is by making this type of statement without providing support.

If what you say is actually true, many of us would like to know and know from where the information comes.

Oh gosh! I listened to a presentation as a favor to a friend, because I also wanted to find the real truth about them, and I was also disappointed with their whole philosophy and products.
I do give them some credit for being better than the stuff most people are buying from the store, but I go with Shaklee for my family's supplements and cleaning products. For personal care products, I go with organic brands like Alba and Dr. Bronner's.

Yes that's why I chose to go with Nutrilite products which are 100% organic, no additives, artificial coloring, etc... they are filled with fruits and veggies and phytonutrients from their own organic farms that go straight from the farm to the supplement! So much science behind it and It was the best thing I did for my kids and my family! :) Oh and they are celebrating their 80th anniversary this year!

Hi Bonnie,
Great question! I use all Shaklee's nontoxic natural cleaning products. They are truly green, and I have done plenty of research on them. Their cleaners are also nonscented, and you can even get nonscented laundry detergent! I love their Basic H because it cleans everything and is so concentrated saving you a ton of money. You can read more and even order from this website: Let me know if you have any more questions!

Hi, I am new here. I have severe allergies am am looking for Scent Free cleaning products. I too am getting messages from Melaleuca. How do you know when a company is not Green like they say? Where do you find the information? And, most of all, is there a scent free cleaning product (floors, bathrooms, etc.) out there anywhere that I can buy? Thanks for your help.

The only thing I get from their company is Tea Tree Oil to make my own cleaning products & their Pre-Spot, which works wonderfully on just about anything from clothing to carpet & I know it's going to be washed out. But you are right, they are like any mainstream company trying to disguise themselves as "green".
