MLMs That Have Been Shut Down

 

Background Info

This list is focused on companies that provide Health and Wellness products and services, because I believe this is an area with the highest risk of potential harm to consumers. Many MLM products are loosely regulated, promote improbable and unproven health benefits, and use deceptive practices to lure customers into investing large amounts of money.

Categories for Health & Wellness MLM companies can include:

  • Air Filters/Air Filtration Systems
  • Aromatherapy
  • Cosmetics
  • Green/Organic/Eco-Friendly
  • Haircare/Hair Accessories
  • Health/Fitness/Wellness
  • Homeopathics
  • Nutritional Supplements
  • Oral Hygiene
  • Personal Care
  • Skincare
  • Spa Products
  • Weight Management
