If you came across this blog post, you’re probably a fan of our page on Facebook, “I Eat Organic,” an Essanté distributor, or someone who has been referred to Essanté Organics from a friend or family member. Although I do promote Essanté’s products, I did my best to make this review as unbiased as possible: these are the facts from my understanding and I hope they will be helpful in answering your questions and/or clarifying your doubts.
What is Essanté?
Essanté is a direct sales company in the health and wellness industry. It was founded in 2009 by Michael Wenniger, who now has over 20 years of experience in the wellness industry. Essanté specializes in products that are 100% organic and toxin-free.
Can they back up their organic claims?
Essanté does have certifications for all of their claims including certifications from the Toxic Free Foundation, the National Organic Program, and the National Science Foundation—they are also 100% Eco-certified for their sustainable development. Essanté is just 1 of only 6 companies in the world that is certified by the Toxic-Free Foundation.
Who belongs to the corporate staff?
The corporate staff positions are held by Michael Wenniger (CEO- Chief Executive Officer), Dr. Jonathan James Levine (President), and Angie Levine (CMO- Chief Marketing Officer).
How is this company different than any other MLM company?
Essanté is unique in the fact that they are the only direct sales company that produces a line of 100% certified organic and toxic-free “all-natural” or “organic.”
I say that because if it’s not 100% organic, it can be difficult to tell whether or not it contains harmful ingredients. Tom’s of Maine, for example, boasts their brand as a healthy alternative to some of their more chemical-laden counterparts, yet many of their products still contain dangerous chemicals.
Not only that, but once a small owned and operated company, Tom’s of Maine is now owned by the major corporation Colgate-Palmolive. Fluoride in toothpaste is a definite no-no in my book (Tom’s has toothpaste with and without it), but some of their toothpastes (especially the kids’s toothpaste–our most vulnerable humans) still contain SLS (sodium-lauryl sulfate), a chemical linked to irritation of the skin and eyes, organ toxicity, developmental/reproductive toxicity, neurotoxicity, endocrine disruption, possible mutations, and cancer.
“Putting chemicals on your skin or scalp may actually be worse than eating them. When you eat something, the enzymes in your saliva and stomach help to break it down and flush it out of your body. However, when you put these chemicals on your skin, they are absorbed straight into your bloodstream without filtering of any kind, going directly to your delicate organs.” -Joseph Mercola, M.D.
Sadly enough, many of the companies that do boast the terms “all-natural” are actually the ones who have dangerous chemicals in their products that they try to cover up with clever marketing terms. Unfortunately that’s the reality of countless companies and businesses today, which is why we have to become more informed, educated consumers.
You can check out the “threat level” of your personal care products by visiting the Environmental Working Group’s website here. All you have to do is enter the brand names of the products that you’re using and the site will show you what toxic threat level your product has and any harmful side effects that have been linked to that product’s ingredients.
What kind of products does Essanté have?
Essanté has a full catalog of over 75 different products that range a wide variety of categories including but not limited to: personal care products (organic shampoo, conditioner, body wash, face wash & moisturizer, as well as a full anti-aging skincare line), baby care products (baby body wash and lotion–great for eczema!), weight-loss products (meal-replacement shake, alkalizing fruit and veggie powders with 5.5 lbs of fruits or veggies in every scoop), health and wellness products (allergy fighting and immune-boosting bee tabs, vitamins and more), cleaning/household products (organic sanitizer, certified free chemical-free laundry detergent), as well as a full line of food-grade and certified organic essential oils.
The corporate staff has also made it known that they have several hundred more products formulated and ready to roll out as the company continues growing.
How can I purchase the products?
You can purchase products from Essanté two ways. One way you can order is through their website to be delivered to your door for retail price. You can also order the products at their wholesale price if you become a member–it costs $30/year to become a wholesale member.
That’s cheaper than a Sam’s Club or Costco membership, AND it gives you wholesale prices on safe, organic products that you’re ALREADY using. If you want to become a wholesale customer, just visit this link to sign up and see the full catalog.
How can I make money with Essanté? What is the Essanté compensation plan like?
Good question. :) If you realize what an amazing opportunity, market, company and line of products this is, you may be asking yourself how you can get involved and how you can earn an extra income by sharing these products with others.
Just like there are two ways to buy the products, there are also two ways to earn money by referring the products.
1). Sign up as a wholesale customer and website owner for $30/year, maintain a 40pt monthly autoship, refer others to buy products through your unique site, and earn commissions off your customers’ retail and wholesale purchases.
2). Sign up as a representative by purchasing a fast-start package (products are even cheaper than wholesale with these packages), maintain a 100pt monthly autoship, and be qualified to earn 6 different paychecks (including matching bonuses on the commission checks earned by teammates you’ve personally enrolled).
This compensation plan is a binary compensation plan, which means you just have to find two other people to join your team and maintain an automatic shipment of products. Once you start building a team, you can yield a side income for part-time work or a full income for part-time work (depending on how quickly you grow your team!) You can build down to unlimited levels and get paid on every one of them, there are no caps to what you can earn, and there is absolutely no flushing.

Why are organic products so important?
Between the environmental toxins we’re constantly exposed to, trace toxins in our water supply, overly processed junk food we eat that has no nutritional value, the “fresh” produce we eat that travels hundreds (or thousands) of miles to your grocery store after being covered in toxic pesticides to preserve it, and the dozens upon dozens of carcinogenic chemicals that are found in most personal care products today, eating and consuming ORGANIC products is more important than it has ever been.
The rates of diseases like autism, ADHD, cancer, diabetes and more continue to grow at “unexplainable” rates every year, yet we are supposed to have the most advanced healthcare in the world. There are two major problems that are contributing to this growing epidemic: poor diet and toxic exposure.
Humans were not meant to ingest and use the countless man-made chemicals that we do today. The result is that millions of Americans suffer from a myriad of health problems (yet they don’t know why), so they pop prescription pill after pill, hoping to mask the symptoms that plague them. It’s no wonder why our nation is in such poor health today.
Do yourself and your loved ones a favor–do your research on this topic and make the educated, informed decision to switch to organic. It’s crucial to our health!
What is the organic market like right now?
As consumers are becoming more and more educated about the dangers of our food supply, demand for safer, organic products continues to grow.
Many high-profile investors are bullish on Whole Foods because they believe the younger millennial generation want their food “vetted and verified,” as CNBC business broadcaster Jim Cramer put it Wednesday in a column.
“The organic industry has exploded in the last decade, with $35 billion in sales and 10 percent growth just last year. There are more than 17,000 certified organic businesses in the country.”
How do you promote the products?
Because Essanté’s products are consumable, everyday products that most people use anyway (shampoo, conditioner, skincare products, haircare products, laundry detergent, etc.), promoting the products is just a matter of showing people that by switching brands, they are not only becoming healthier, but they are saving on future healthcare costs and/or creating an extra income for themselves. The products you purchase through Essanté are also tax-deductible unlike the products you normally buy at the store. It’s a win, win, win.
You can share Essanté products with friends and family, of course, but there are also many others ways to promote this business. Finding natural health or alternative health stores, alternative healthcare offices (chiropractors, holistic doctors, acupuncturists, etc.) and other pre-existing businesses can be a great way to expand your audience reach. You can also host home-parties that showcase the products live or promote the products online to a targeted audience. At the end of the day, Essanté is one of the few companies that offers a wide variety of 100% certified organic products and that is what a large percentage of consumers are looking for in today’s toxic age. It doesn’t matter so much where you’re promoting them, but how you’re promoting them. When most people learn the toxic truth, they are generally more than happy to switch brands.
