Happy Earth Day from Melaleuca!

Melaleuca Wishes you a Happy Earth Day

Melaleuca Wishes you a Happy Earth Day

Let’s all do our part for a healthy planet

Each year on April 22, people around the world pause to celebrate Earth Day. Since 1970, special events across the globe have taken place on this day in support of environmental wellness.

Earth Day 2016 is especially historic, as more than 100 nations are expected to sign the Paris Agreement—a monumental climate protection treaty adopted last year by the United Nations. This global environmental initiative is one of hope and promise, as the nations who sign today do so with the commitment to lower greenhouse-gas emissions.

No matter how big or how small, nations, companies, communities, and families have the responsibility and opportunity to make a lasting, positive difference for our beautiful planet.

Can you really make a difference? At Melaleuca, we believe you can. It all starts with understanding how your choices alter the environment.

Understanding Your Environmental Impact

Whether you live in a big city or a small town, on the coast or in the mountains, earth is the place we all call home. And it’s up to us to take care of it.

Our actions impact whether or not the air we breathe is clean and the water we drink is fresh. They can also directly alter the delicate ecosystems that make life on this planet possible. We all want a clean, safe, and beautiful environment for our families to enjoy. In order to maintain that, we need to understand our connection to the world around us.

Many factors, including the decisions we make in our own homes, affect the well being of our environment. Little things we do every day can either add to the problems facing the environment or to the solutions. If everyone chooses to make just a few simple changes in their daily routine, over time our world will become cleaner and healthier for generations to come.

Making a Difference Can Be Easy

Keeping the home we live in clean is a normal part of our regular routine. When the garbage is full, we take it out. When the dishes need to be cleaned, we wash them. But when it comes to the second home we have, the earth we live on, doing our part to keep the environment clean is often overlooked.

It doesn’t take much to pollute the air, contaminate water, squander energy, or create waste. That’s why it’s important to know what we can do to reduce our negative impact on the environment. The good news is that making a difference is as easy as rethinking how we go places, what we throw away, and what we use to clean our homes.

Four Ways to Help Mother Earth

  1. Protect Water. First, only use cleaning products that are free from harsh chemicals like chlorine bleach and phosphates—like Safe & Mighty™ Toilet Bowl Cleaner—to keep our waterways clean. Second, use only as much water as you need and be especially mindful of anything you put down the drain.
  2. Conserve Energy. Whenever possible, wash your laundry in cold water. This can save you more than $10 a month on your electric bill. MelaPower® 6x is specially formulated clean your laundry in cold water. Also, turn your thermostat up 2 degrees in the summer and down 2 degrees in the winter to save energy and lower your bill.
  3. Improve Air Quality. Combine your weekly errands into a single trip. Ride a bike, take a walk, carpool, or use mass transit whenever possible. If you can skip a trip in your car, do it.
  4. Reduce Waste. Buying concentrated products like EcoSense® cleaning, laundry, and dish products helps reduce packaging that’s thrown away and cuts down on the need to manufacture new plastic packaging. By recycling aluminum cans, paper products, plastics, and glass bottles, you can reduce the amount of trash that ends up in our landfills.

The Melaleuca Difference

By choosing to purchase products from companies committed to eco-friendly practices, you are making a difference. If you’re a Melaleuca customer, you’re already helping protect the environment—whether you realize it or not.

For over 30 years, Melaleuca has made environmental wellness an important part of our company culture. Here are just a few ways how:

  1. Melaleuca’s EcoSense® products contain no harsh chemicals that pollute waterways and damage the environment. Instead, they are formulated with natural, biodegradable ingredients.
  2. Our concentrated products use less water, less plastic, and less fuel, which saves resources and decrease pollution. In fact, since 1985, Melaleuca has saved:

    205,701,712 pounds of plastic,
    41,013,695 gallons of gasoline,
    and 46,145,876 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions

    … all because customers like you purchase our concentrated products!

  3. We use recycled and sustainably sourced materials in our manufacturing. We even recycle the plastic bins used to move products at our plant.
  4. By shipping our products directly to you, we save you a trip to the grocery store. And because our trucks our packed to capacity, we maximize fuel use.
  5. Our facilities use skylights and energy-efficient lighting to cut back on electricity. And our facilities in Idaho Falls, Idaho, are powered 97% by wind and hydroelectricity.

As you can see, Melaleuca is committed to protecting Mother Earth, and we hope you’ll join us. Start small by implementing the environmentally friendly practices suggested above. You can even share them with your family, friends, and neighbors.

This planet is our only home. And what a beautiful home it is. By working together, we can preserve a healthy environment for ourselves, our children, and for generations to come.

Nothing Beats Melaleuca Products…or Melaleuca Customers

480 Really Good Reasons why Melaleuca is Growing

Melaleuca continues to experience massive growth. 2016 is shaping up to be another record-breaking year. We’re absolutely thrilled that customers around the world are discovering Melaleuca at a meteoric rate.

Melaleuca is no stranger to explosive growth. We opened our doors in 1985 with just eight wellness products (and only seven employees!), but our status as a tiny startup in rural Idaho was short-lived.

Beginning in 1990, Melaleuca made Inc. 500’s list of the fastest growing privately held companies in the U.S.—for five consecutive years. Today, we do business in 18 countries around the world, and we’re now experiencing the fastest growth in our 30-year history.

So why is The Wellness Company doing so well?

There could be a thousand reasons, but two major factors clearly stand out: Simply put, Melaleuca has the best products in the world and the best customers.

Superior Products

Want a good reason why Melaleuca is growing so rapidly? We’ll give you at least 480 of them.

Two of Melaleuca’s founding axioms are “to provide exceptional products at reasonable prices” and “to enhance the lives of those we touch, by helping people reach their goals.” As we developed each of our 480+ products, we did so with the mission of enhancing lives in mind. Our products are effective and affordable. If a product doesn’t enhance lives, we don’t make it, and we don’t sell it.

Product innovation is a hallmark of Melaleuca. We place a huge premium on research and development. If we didn’t, we wouldn’t be able to deliver the very best products—products that bring together the best of science and nature.

Our numerous patents, the development of Oligofructose Complex®, and the profound results of the Freiburg Study are just a few examples of our unwavering commitment to scientific research. We invest in research because we want our customers to have an incomparable experience with our products.

When you take the Peak Performance Pack, brew a fresh cup of Mountain Cabin™ Premium Coffee, clean your toilet with non-toxic Safe & Mighty™ Toilet Bowl Cleaner, fill your home with the aroma of PURE™ Essential Oils, or experience any one of our 480+ products, we want—and fully expect—those products to enhance your life.

Smart, Loyal Customers
We truly believe Melaleuca customers are smarter and better educated than the average grocery store customer. Our customers pay attention to labels and ingredients. They’re concerned about the health and well being of their families, and they’re careful about what they bring into their homes. They shop with us because they know Melaleuca products will enhance their lives.

If there’s one refrain we hear time and again when customers talk about Melaleuca, it’s this: “I love the products!” Our customer loyalty is second to none.

In fact, we have an average 96% month-to-month reorder rate. We hang our hats on that number because it shows our customers not only love Melaleuca products, but they want to keep using the products month after month and year after year.

As a word-of-mouth business, we rely completely on our customers recommending Melaleuca products to people they know. It’s because of the incredible product experiences our customers have shared with their friends and family that Melaleuca has grown into a worldwide powerhouse.

Whether you’ve been a Melaleuca customer for 30 years or 30 days, thank you for shopping with us. And if you’ve ever shared Melaleuca with someone you know, thank you for referring them. Our success as a company is because of you!

A Big Thank-You to Melaleuca Moms

Melaleuca moms

There are billions of us in the world—each one unique. Yet despite our differences, there’s something we all share in common.

We all have a mother.

Moms give us life, love, and laughter. When we’re sad, Mom is there to wipe away our tears. When we’re worried, she assures us that everything will be all right. And when we triumph, she is by far our biggest cheerleader.

From day one, Mom does it all—the big and the small, the enjoyable and the unpleasant. She gives you sustenance. She bandages your wounds. She cleans up your messes. She discovers and cultivates your talents. She shapes your very world.

A mom is the consummate teacher, nurse, personal assistant, friend, and moral guide. Think about the values you try to uphold: honesty, faith, patience, generosity, forgiveness, hard work. Chances are, you learned them from your mother’s example.

The truth is, you wouldn’t be the person you are—you wouldn’t be a person at all—without your mom.

And Melaleuca wouldn’t be what it is today without moms either. That’s because moms are the backbone of Melaleuca. They’re ordering Melaleuca’s safer, more effective products for their families. They’re sharing Melaleuca with their friends and neighbors.

Darrin Johnson, Melaleuca’s Senior Vice President of Sales, sums it up best. “Thousands of women come to Melaleuca every year,” Darrin says, “and they bring with them some of the deepest, most visceral reasons for being here: to make their homes safer for their children, to give their families better nutrition, to secure their finances, to reduce life stress so they can be better parents.”

In short, Melaleuca’s mission of enhancing lives is the mission of moms.

And here’s what truly sets moms apart from the rest: They’re not in it for the rewards. Their motivation—simply, selflessly, and beautifully—is to improve the lives of their children.

While our moms don’t ask to be pampered, they certainly deserve it. They’ve given us so much that the least we can do is indulge them with a decadent gift now and then.

Available for a limited time while supplies last, the Foot Care Combo Pack is a complete home spa experience for Mom’s feet and more. With sublimely aromatic Bath Bombs and a stylish designer accessory bag, it’s the perfect way to say thank you like only you and Melaleuca can.

Moms are champions who don’t get half the acclaim they deserve. So take a moment today to show appreciation to your mother. Whether it’s the indulgent Foot Care Combo Pack, another luxurious Melaleuca gift, a phone call, or a hug, it really doesn’t matter.

Just do something to show your love for the woman who’s given you everything.

Melaleuca Introduces 3 New & Improved EcoSense® Formulas

Tub&Tile Ecosense

For 30 years, Melaleuca has been the leader in cleaning products that are not only more effective than the grocery store brands, but also safer, healthier, and more natural. You won’t find chlorine bleach, ammonia, or other toxic chemicals in any of our EcoSense products.

Melaleuca’s innovative cleaning products use natural, biodegradable ingredients so they’re safer for your home, your family, and the environment. The concentrated formulas save plastic and offer you a better value. And now, we’re excited to announce all-new, improved formulas for three of our most popular EcoSense products.

Tub & Tile™ Bathroom Cleaner
Tub & Tile cleans tubs, showers, sinks, toilets, and other bathroom surfaces.* When you use Tub & Tile , you’re using the power of nature—not harsh chemicals—to safely melt away soap scum, limescale, and hard water stains.

What’s new?

  • The natural cleaning power of citric acid (lemons) is better than ever! Making it easier than ever to fight hard water stains and bathroom grime. Derived from sugar cane, sugar beets, and pineapple, glycolic acid boosts Tub & Tile’s natural effectiveness, allowing you to enjoy a cleaner, fresher bathroom—without the worry of toxic chemicals and fumes.
  • The improved Tub & Tile formula also includes a new fragrance oils to deliver an updated Lemon and Tangerine scent that is sure to leave your bathroom smelling as fresh and clean as it looks.

What’s new?

  • Improved sheeting action speeds the removal of soap scum and hard water stains from shower surfaces, keeping your shower looking cleaner longer, with no scrubbing.

Melaleuca Renew™: Clinically Proven to Heal and Protect Even the Driest Skin

Renew Intensive Skin Therapy: Happy Hands

Millions fight a daily battle with dry, irritated skin that keeps them from living life with confidence and comfort. Finding relief can be a frustrating experience. Until they finally discover the only dry skin therapy they’ll ever need: Renew Intensive Skin Therapy.

Renew is clinically proven to work faster, work better, and last longer than the leading dermatologist-recommended lotion. Renew’s non-greasy, total-body formula is light enough for daily use, yet powerful enough to improve chronic dry skin.

The complete moisturizer, Renew works in two ways: first, it keeps skin healthy and prevents dry skin when used daily; second, it relieves and heals even the driest skin.

Renew contains the right moisturizing ingredients in the right amounts for lasting, therapeutic dry skin relief. Renew’s exclusive formula uses therapeutic doses of natural ingredients:

  • Glycerin draws in moisture and helps maintain moisture levels
  • Allantoin’s moisturizing properties help promote and maintain skin health
  • T36-C5® brand Melaleuca Oil soothes dry, irritated skin

Melaleuca customers absolutely love Renew, and we’ve received hundreds of stories about how it is changing lives. But even the most amazing story is no substitute for solid scientific research.

So we set out to substantiate Renew’s effectiveness with clinical data and prove what our customers have been telling us: that nothing works better than Renew in the fight against dry skin.

To show that Renew is the absolute best, we tested it against Eucerin®—the brand most doctors recommend and Renew’s strongest competitor—in one of the most irritating environments for severely dry skin: a harsh Canadian winter in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

A world-renowned clinical laboratory conducted an independent, double-blind clinical study in Winnipeg to see how Renew stacked up against Eucerin when used on dry skin. The results were astonishing.

After only 24 hours, Renew left severely dry skin significantly softer, smoother, more moisturized, and healthier. Even after 14 days of steady use, Eucerin didn’t improve severely dry skin as well as Renew.

Renew is like no other dry-skin therapy lotion. It’s made to give your skin—even your severely, chronically dry skin—everything it needs to heal itself.
Renew is the only dry skin therapy you’ll ever need.
