Hi, I use to sell Melalueca until I read the ingredients on the back of their products. They too are full of parabens and endocrine disruptors. I contacted the company with my complaint and the misinformation I had been told about these products being all natural and safe for us and the environment when they are NOT. I was told that "Melalueca is not an all natural product more so a better product for the environment." That was so not what I was told when I joined i tell ya that.
As for shaklee I have done alot of research on this company because I was interested in it as well and some of their products "basic H" are suppose to be so natural if a child drinks it they will be fine. However i know since they have added to their line some things are not as low on the cosmetic database as you would think.
In my experience I have found that marketing companies such as these cannot make as natural products as we would like because they do not preserve well. Obviously it is the preservatives that make these products unhealthy. Good luck on your search! Feel free to mm if you have anymore questions...I have tried to sell many products from mary kay to avon, from melalueca to isogenix. My success has never been good.

Hi! I want to ask everyone's opinions on a few products. I've been thinking about selling products to try and bring in a little extra income. The brands I've been looking at are Nikken, Shaklee and Melaluka. All claim to be 100% natural and green and whatnot, but as we all know, that doesn't really mean anything. All the time products claim to be natural and you look at the ingredient list and there's mineral oil or parabens or something in it. People selling these products are no help, of course, because they're just trying to sell. If I'm going to sell a product, I want it to be a product I'm proud of. I looked up all of these products on the Cosmetic Safety Database, and the only one that had a ranking was Shaklee. They were scored at a 4, which is medium health risk, and when I looked at the ingredient list it was due to things like parabens and endocrine disruptors. Ewww. God only knows whats in the other ones, since they weren't ranked at all. But still, a 4 isn't bad compared to traditional products being sold in the stores, a lot of them are in the red zone. Part of me thinks that if I'm going to sell a product with parabens, I might as well sell Avon, because that sells itself, but Avon has a way higher risk score than a 4. What do all of you think? Have you ever used any of those products (Nikken, Shaklee or Melaluka)? Do you know of other, better products to sell? Just curious.
Its the ones with the sorest throats who have done the most singing.
