Shaklee is transparent about their yearly income earnings. This information can readily be found on the company website. Shaklee claims the average independent distributor earns approximately $8,000 monthly. Top level distributors generally earn $150,000-$200,000 yearly. The company has been in business for over 50 years, which gives them a stable foothold in the health and wellness industry.
Shaklee provides multiple means of support for its independent distributors. Distributors have open access to the company's Shaklee University, which provides plenty of business training materials and modules. Distributors are provided with sponsors to guide them in building their new businesses. The company also hosts local and regional meetings and conference calls as well as corporate-sponsored training events.
In 2008, a Harvard anti-aging researcher submitted his resignation letter to Shaklee and quit his paid position on the scientific advisory board. Professor David Sinclair was hired to help promote syrup that could purportedly extend life spans. However, he claimed that his name was misrepresented in digital media published from the Shaklee company in endorsing the product. The misrepresentations allegedly misused his name in ways that were not clearly part of the contract he agreed to. Shaklee denied any wrongdoing. A company spokesperson stated that all mentions of Mr. Sinclair's name in digital media and other advertisements were pre-approved by him. Some of the online digital media was audio from radio programs where Dr. Sinclair was interviewed regarding the new product. On the radio program Dr. Sinclair could be clearly heard making those types of statements.

I have known Shaklee since 1982. Still taking these quality products that has proven to be the best. They work well. I have gotten rid of a flu in 2 days; cholesterol in 6 months and keep up my health nicely. I have lots of energy, especially taking care of mom, who has dementia, and 2 young grandkids. It makes the difference! I love Shaklee.
From a product standpoint- quality products. Behind in Innovation, from a science standpoint, but quality none the less. I was an “all-in” distributor for over 16years. Never thought I would leave. All I will say is there is discrepancies with the pay structure, am obvious lack of company vision, and the lack of decent technology was constantly frustrating. Difficulty with the incongruity of earning LESS when you promote a distributor.
We started using Shaklee in 2005 love them! I don’t trust any other company with the health of my family! Shaklee is an amazing company with products that help people live a healthier life and a business opportunity that helps people have a better life! I am so thankful for both aspects of Shaklee and even more thankful that it’s all done with the best science in harmony with nature!
My parents found Shaklee in the mid 1970s before I was born. The products helped my mom to rebuild her health and had a surprise pregnancy after that - me! I grew up with the cleaners and supplements and now that I am a mom, love having the safe products with my young family. The kids vitamins are very good and help my kids stay healthy. Shaklee helped me to lose the baby weight and keep it off too. I love the science and integrity behind Shaklee. The products work and we can trust the brand!
Their website says we can get 100%money back if not satisfied !It's a lie, I returned my goods, But no refund has been received
I am 73 years old,and have been a Shaklee member for 30 years. I have used their products for even longer, with the nutritional supplements, cleaning products and personal care products. I have had outstanding health, even improved my eyesight , halted a tendency for arthritis. The Shaklee organization is like a family, with helpful information, based on scientific studies done by a team of scientists. The highest standards of quality, including 100% warranty on all products, speaks of the company's integrity. Shaklee puts money into research and development instead of advertisement; household cleaners are totally organic and concentrated to reduce packaging materials. If raw material or a product is found defective or sub-standard, it is removed from use until a proper replacement is found. The phone reps are always courteous and helpful, and shipment timelyI have not only benefited healthwise, but my appliances have lasted longer from using the household products. My skin is in great shape, even though I am fair-skinned, raised in the deep South, with skin cancer on both sides of my family. I have nothing but trust and belief in the Shaklee coorporation and it's products.
It's very hard to get a refund and when you return it, you have to wait a long time

I found Shaklee 25 years ago and have never looked back. The products are amazing and continue to get even more amazing each year with new launches. There is a over a 60 year record of the products making a difference in many people's lives. My experience is that through the residual income I receive from Shaklee, I have been able to work from home for over 25 years. I have been able to help both parents through their dying process without losing any income. I found out after a car accident that the insurance would not pay me for lost wages because I made too much money residually. I am able to see my great-grandsons any time I want as I have the time freedom. Great company and great compensation.
I have been taking Shaklee products and have been a Shaklee Distributor for over 20 years now. If not for God and Shaklee I might not be here right now. I love the company, the products, the people, all the research they do. Even though I have not actively done my business for a while I still receive my bonus check every month. Am now looking to rebuild and looking forward to all that Shaklee has to over.
In the mid 90's I was introduced to Shaklee's products. At the time I had a health condition that baffled the medical community. Getting on Shaklee's Vita-Lea, protein and calcium, eliminated the condition, and changed my life for the better! With ingredients that are tested to go Beyond Organic, Shaklee products are guaranteed to be safe and pure ... and they're backed by over 100 peer-reviewed clinical studies that prove product efficacy. That's the true Shaklee Difference. These days I'm grateful to say I take no medications, feel great, and am often mistaken for being much younger than my years. I am SO grateful an acquaintance took the time to speak to me about Shaklee.
Can't say enough good stuff about working with Shaklee, and using all their products. We have been loyal users for 35 years, and feel better because of it. Our general good health in our mid to late 70's we attribute to our use of the Shaklee nutritional supplements. Love their research and their commitment to excellence. Every time they come out with a new product, we find they have outdone themselves again. Yeah Shaklee.
Shaklee is an amazing company with products that help people live a healthier life and a business opportunity that helps people have a better life! I am so thankful for both aspects of Shaklee and even more thankful that it’s all done with the best science in harmony with nature!
A friend introduced me to Shaklee after my baby ate a Cascade Power Ball and I had to call poison control because she was so sick. I switched to all their non-toxic cleaning products and found work amazing and save me hundreds of dollars. Before Shaklee, my son was sick all the time and on antibiotics, nebulizers, and inhalers (for 7 years!). Since switching to Shaklee supplements, he has been free of all those prescriptions for now EIGHT years! Life changing health transformation! I am so impressed with their clinical research, articles in peer-reviewed clinical journals, their testing for purity (unrivaled in the industry), and most of all the results my family has experienced in improved health. Also, I love the ethics and community of the company- a truly caring family, excellent customer service, and all products come with a money back satisfaction guarantee.
Love the products! Love the company! I have been a producer user for 40 years and have not found another company that comes close to the standards of Shaklee products and customer service. The purity, potency & performance of their products are unmatched in the industry.
My family and I have enjoyed great health benefits for nearly 40 years. It started with Vita-Lea, a multi, and Protein, and my fever blisters were gone....then tried a few more products like Calcium , leg cramps gone. The more we tried the more health benefits. Grandchildren asthma and allergies , no more. I love after all these years, Never a recall, Science based, pure, safe, effective healthy products, for you and your loved ones!
I have been using shaklee for 40+ years and know the products help me to remain healthy year round. I have tried other brands and did not feel they helped me to be health so I returned to Shaklee products and have continued to feel super. The household products are incredible and work fantastic while saving us a lot of money. As for the comment regarding the Starter Packs being high - if you look at the Household pack it will save you more money than you can imagine and safe! Shaklee stands behind their products, has a 100% money back guarantee and has great Field Support! You will be happy you switched!
In June of 2018, it will be 38 yrs since I was introduced to Shaklee products. I had been recently diagnosed with Crohn’s disease and a very good friend encouraged me to try Shaklee products. It’s a very long story but I was able to regain my health and the health of my husband and 4 children. My children now have their own children, all of whom have been raised on Shaklee from the womb on. I have 14 healthy grandchildren. I thank God for my friend who introduced me to Shaklee. I don’t think I’d be alive today had I not chosen Shaklee over traditional drug therapy. I’m 74 and healthy and take NO prescription or over the counter medications. I was a young mom, 36 yrs old, and I went on to build a wonderful business . I’ll never retire. A one word summary about Shaklee would be INTEGRITY! Don’t ever be afraid to share these wonderful products and/or the business opportunity with anyone. You may be the change that is desperately needed by someone.
16 years ago I was introduced to Shaklee products. What a life changer that was! With the 100% money back guarantee I had nothing to lose when trying. What I found was the cleaning products worked better than any I had ever used, and the supplements made a huge difference in my families health. When I use Shaklee and when I talk to others about Shaklee I know the products are safe, proven, guaranteed and work! The integrity of the company is untouchable and I am proud to be involved with such an outstanding company that goes over and above the standards for safe and effective products. The Shaklee home team are all so helpful and amazing at finding answers to any questions you ask as well as being there to support you. I have met amazing friends through Shaklee and feel blessed to be part of the Shaklee family. Our CEO is always ready to stop and talk to everyone he can and embrace everyone no matter what rank or how long you have been in the company. Our autoship is very user friendly making it easy for customers to make any adjustments to their order. Overall I love the Shaklee company and cannot imagine where my family would be now without it.
My family has used the Shaklee products for 45 years. When I first found Shaklee, I was concerned because my family had a history of dying young from heart problems. When I was diagnosed with the same heart problem my father and his cousin and his cousin's daughter all died from, I was scared I would never get past age 65. I am now 77 and doing very well, thank you. Yes, modern medicine is helping, but I can feel the difference on days when I am not able to take the supplements I usually take and the days when I do. When you can feel the difference, you know there is a reason to be supplementing your diet. It is a form of insurance that your body feels and responds to.
I have been using the Shaklee products for 19 years! It totally changed the health of my family and I love all the science that goes into everyone of their product. Their cleaners are non toxic , very concentrated, and they WORK! I get my orders usually in 2 days! No minimum orders or renewal fees! 100% money back guarantee and the customer service is great!
Excellent, clean products that really work!
I grew up with products from this company - 48 years and counting. The efficacy of the nutritional products is unparalleled. As a professor I can tell you 'I need proof" before I recommend a product to anyone. When UC Berkeley proves our Supplements superior to any brand in the world - well it doesn't get better than that academically. NASA comes to Shaklee when they have nutritional needs for their astronauts - again. Shaklee is the #1 Natural nutrition company for a reason. The body can live without oils. It cannot live without nutrition. Shaklee is about scientific documentation, not clever conversations. If you are considering purchasing or representing any product line, your first request should be: Can you show me you third party clinical studies. Shaklee has over 120.
I am thrilled with the results Shaklee has given me through the years I have used the products. They have changed my life, I take no medications . I attribute this to the wonderful products Shaklee produces backed by science to ensure they are safe, pure and effective. Everyone is looking for organic, these products are more pure than organic with clinical tests to prove their claims. What a blessing to share with others. The products change lives!
I was introduced to Shaklee about 20 years ago. I had been diagnosed with some serious health issues and used many medications and supplements recommended by my doctors. When I began using Shaklee, things in my health really started to change. I had been a full-time dental hygienist and it was recommended to me that I retire. That left us with a large void in our income. I never went looking for Shaklee as an income opportunity. But because of the changes in my health, people were asking me what I was doing. As a result, Shaklee did become an earning opportunity and is one of the best gifts I’ve ever received. It’s allowed me to replace my income, homeschool my daughter, and help other people change their health and finances. I love my Shaklee. Many of the issues that were predicted for my health have never come true. I really believe that’s because of Shaklee and the journey it has taken me on with my health.
Its all good when the health of your family is improved !! The legacy of Shaklee is working with nature and the business ethics of using the Golden Rule. Products are 100% guaranteed. The good news is shared by users vs paid actors on big pharma chemical commercials.
We have used the Shaklee products in our home for almost 15 years. I started using them when I and one of my children were very sick. I come from a family with a scientific and medical background and I knew nothing about supplementation. I was blown away by their research and science the most of all by the fact that I started to feel better period at 27 years old I genuinely truly have more energy than I had ever remembered having in my life. This company changed my life in the house of my family with their products. Science and research does matter to me because natural doesn't always mean safe. I feel blessed 2 have been introduced to the Shaklee products so many years ago.
100% money back empty bottle guarantee. Ground breaking products since Dr Shaklee introduced the first multivitamin/mineral in the US 102 years ago. Matchless science and medical team, and scrupulous product development and manufacture. Standards far beyond organic. These are just a few of the reasons I only use all the products from Shaklee. And when I decided to put my personal reputation on the line and share my own better health with others, the compensation and benefits far exceeded my expectations. And this is for a few hours a week outside my more than full time profession. It takes focus and training, and the rewards are worth it. The people in both the corporate office and the field business owners are are of a caliber to match the products. Where else can I be surrounded by people in their 70’s through 100’s in great mental and physical health? That’s the ultimate proof of products that work and are safe.
I have used Shaklee for almost 5 years now and I will never use another supplement company. The product quality and the integrity that this company operates with is incredible. I use the daily vitamin strips, the protein, the fitness line, the skincare and the cleaning products and I have yet to find one that doesn’t work the way it is advertised to! Amazing company!! ??
I will be a Shaklee mom for life! So glad I found this company! No other is like it!
10 years ago I joined this company fat, sick and nearly dead. Through the help of an amazing marketing system, becoming Director in 3 months was easy for me and I'm currently holding position of Co-ordinator, despite the numerous health challenges that have prevented me from working my business for long stretches at a time. As a business it's fantastic but that's not the best part. The products, that alone is the evidence based proof to me. I joined Shaklee while battling Lyme disease plus 5 other co-infections that came with it, overcame major life and death cardiac issues, overcame Cancer without chemo/radiation, went from 240lbs to 130 ... and I won't mention all the surgeries, and yet I'm still here! Stronger and better than ever! Why? Because nutritional support is a MUST when recovering from anything, and Shaklee's products gave me that and so much more. How do you put a price tag on that? Never have I been disappointed in the amount of support I get from head office AND other Shaklee members, it's amazing! I've had the pleasure of getting to know some of them well over the years and to me they are like family. Shaklee feels like family, like home, like love. 10 years I've been using and moving these incredible life changing products, 10 years I've had an income but the one thing I can't put a price or value amount on is what these products have done to not only change my life, but literally help SAVE my life in several life/death challenges along the way. For that I am so grateful, and I'm here to stay!
Shaklee is the number 1, the oldest & largest natural nutrition company in the US. I have been using & distributing the products for 38 years. If Shaklee makes it, I won't use another brand. They are THAT good. The business compensation plan, as well as the products, are unmatched in the industry. Shaklee has kept myself and my family healthy for 38 years. So many are looking for a better life through MLM's today. We are the original. Once I found Shaklee, I never needed to look further - I found the best. And I'm so happy I did! Customer service is AMAZING. Every product is 100% gauranteed, with over ? thousand tests per year on our products! Over 90 Peer-reviewed clinical studies on our products. Only Shaklee does that!
I have used Shaklee since I was a kid (45 yrs) and counting. I love using their safe cleaners that actually work. Shaklee’s Youth skincare keeps my skin looking wrinkle free. I can’t imagine being without Shaklee supplements, which make me feel good and able to keep up with my teen. If you have never tried Shaklee products, I say give them a try. You have nothing to loose with their Money Back Guarantee. That’s how my Mom got started, but she felt so much better in 30 days that she purchased more when she ran out.
Our family has used Shaklee products for over 20 years. We appreciate and have grown to trust all the science and research that Shaklee does to make sure our products are safe, proven, and guaranteed solutions to help our family live younger longer. We have experienced optimal health, energy, immunity and stress management with their nutritional line and with their non toxic cleaners and personal care products! And as we Naturally share are our experience with others- we are compensated nicely by Shaklee for doing so!
This is a company that truly lives by the Golden Rule. They bring quality products that are backed by sound science, not marketing or borrowed science. Products that are proven to be effective and safe. They've made such a positive difference in the health of my family! I love what they do for people and our beautiful planet!
For supplements they are 100% guaranteed...they work....they are safe. Could not be a better company. The Get Clean Line is the best. Money saving, non toxic. Love Shaklee
I was introduced to Shaklee 24 years ago when I was looking for a natural alternative to lower my cholesterol and triglycerides. Within 35 days of using the Shaklee supplements, my blood work had improved so much that I started changing brands to Shaklee. Within a short time I I knew this was a company I could trust and wanted to be associated with. As a young widow at the time, the business opportunity was a great way for me to supplement my income. Now at 72, I work my Shaklee business full time, work out several times a week and enjoy excellent health. Ellen
I have been using Shaklee products for over 40 years. My mother was a single-parent on a very limited budget but she knew the value of good nutrition and made sure her 3 kids got a protein shake and vitamins each day. This was back in the 70’s when only ‘hippies’ took shakes and vitamins. Not only did we use many of the Shaklee products but we watched her work her Shaklee business so she could afford the products. She loved owning her own business and working beside people with integrity. Her healthy values peaked my interest in nutrition and I began to compare other products in the market to Shaklee. I learned that there was not, and is not, another company out there with the number of credible scientific studies that prove the safety, quality and efficacy of their products. They even guarantee satisfaction or money back. Shaklee is the best!
I've been recovering from open-heart surgery, and find my daughter, and daughter-in-law's advice to keep up my Shaklee vitamins, and other nutritional supplements has helped me better than anything else...
I started using Shaklee products 10 years ago. They dramatically improved my health. I lost 28 pounds, got off pain meds, when I got Lyme 5 years ago the immunity and detoxifying products really made a difference! My daughter is a senior in the biological sciences program at Cornell and she told me she never really appreciated the quality and purity of the Shaklee products before. During cramming sessions and big tests, she always takes Mindworks, Stress Relief Complex and Energy Chews. And even though she's only 22, even the Mindworks works incredibly well for focus and memory. Doing some nutritional programs at Cornell recently she was really blown away by the true scientific research that Shaklee has done over the last 62 years, and research is her specialty. There is truly not another company like it period!
