Hailed as “The Queen of Green” by the New York Times, Debra Lynn Dadd has been a pioneering consumer advocate since 1982, specializing in products and lifestyle choices that are safer for human health and the environment.

Question: I know there are probably a lot of alternative names for formaldehyde used in products. Do you know or have a list of the other names?

Answer: Here are the ones I could find: 

Formalin 
Methanal 
Methyl aldehyde 
Methylene oxide 
Morbicid acid 
Oxymethylene

And these preservatives, found in personal care products, release formaldehyde: Quaternium-15 
2-bromo-2nitropropane-1,3-diol imidazolidinyl urea 
diazolidinyl urea

When was the last time you checked your personal care products for formaldehyde? It makes me wonder how much of the skin issues people experience today are caused from what’s IN their personal products as opposed to what their skin produce themselves.

The Up’s and Down’s of Starting a Shaklee Business

Like any new business you need to get out there and talk to as many people as possible in order to spread the word and generate new customers. I’ve been very fortunate in that sharing Shaklee is a joy as people find such amazing benefits from the products they basically sell themselves.

That said, the last month as been really busy for me (more to come on that later!) and I haven’t been able to focus on Shaklee the way I would like. I was feeling really down about it over the weekend and very sad that I don’t have more time to spend building my business.

It’s amazing how the universe knows when you need a lift. I received three emails yesterday that completely lifted my spirits!!! 

  • The first was from a new customer who was writing to tell me how much she loved her new Shaklee laundry products. She went on to share that she now judges ‘clean’ by how well the products have worked for her. She put the first huge smile on my face yesterday 🙂
  • The second was from a woman I’d been chatting with for a few weeks who had decided that she was ready to try the Shaklee Enfuselle products as she’s working to clear up her skin. I’m so excited to have her join my group and I can’t wait to hear about her experience with the products! Huge smile #2 🙂 🙂
  • The last email was from a customer who was purchasing product for the third time. It’s been amazing to witness her Shaklee journey as she was very skeptical of the products when we first talked.  Since she started with the Enfuselle line, she’s expanded her use into the nutrition products, the laundry products and just purchased her first household cleaners and baby products! It’s times like this when I feel really proud to have helped another person cultivate a toxin free home. Huge smile #3 🙂 🙂 🙂

So thanks to all of you who helped me yesterday and I’m excited to continue on this Shaklee journey!
