I was on a journey to find a job I can do from home. I was on the work at home moms website and clicked on an ad. To make a long story short, I was brought to Melaleuca. I thought hmmm, I can buy safe products for my family and also make a business out of this. The first thing I didn’t like about this company was that I had to sign up to purchase 35 product points a month, which seemed a lot for my family. Oh yeah, and if you didn’t order, you had to have a back up order on file and they would automatically send you that and charge your card. Well I gave it a try, ordered my products, and received them a week later.
One of the personal products I purchased was body wash. Renew body wash for adults and Koala pals for my sons. I don’t know if the person who tried to sell me on Melaleuca didn’t think that I would look at the ingredients in these products. Lets just say….
Renew body wash and Koala pals -
Some of the ingredients:
PEG 80 Sorbitan Laurate, is not safe to use on injured or damaged skin. There is also a strong evidence of being a human skin toxicant and is a primary skin irritant. Not good for everyday use, only limited use.
Cocamidopropyl Betaine, is a skin sensitizer – an agent that can induce allergic reaction in the skin or lungs. Again not safe for everyday use, only safe for limited use.
Fragrance, is a known human immune system toxicant. Also has a score of 8 for high hazard.
I could go on and on about the ingredients on these products. How can a “wellness” company sell products like these or How could anyone promote this company? These are 2 questions I have. This company is not a green company. They claim that Johnson’s baby wash is harmful and toxic. Well most of the ingredients in Johnson’s is also in there koala pals body wash.
I sent an email to the woman who signed me up for Melaleuca with the same questions. Of course, I never got a response. Obviously I was right in my findings and she couldn’t fight for her “Company”. Well I deleted my account with Melaleuca and I will tell as many people that I can about this company. They are not a green company!!! Also I have heard through other blogs that they do test there products on animals. Not sure how true that is though.
*****I got my ingredients information from the cosmeticsdatabase.com website. Very informational site!! Check it out!!!
***** Also, I have found a company called California baby, I purchased products from them that I use for my 10 month old. Their baby products are made from plants and all natural.
