Quality is Everything to Shaklee

So this is what I really love about Shaklee: Their outstanding committment to quality. If even one ingredient in their product does not meet their specifications and standards, they halt production until the issue is resolved.

Are you confident that the company that makes your vitamins, supplements and baby care products is doing the same?

Since I joined Shaklee back in April, most of the baby line has been out of production. And I think it was out of production even before April. That's a long time! But you know what? It's because Shaklee refuses to put out less than perfect products.

Take a look at what our corporate office has put out about our Shakleebaby products:

We understand your frustration with the current unavailability of Shakleebaby products, and would like nothing more than to have them back in inventory, immediately. Unfortunately, the sourcing of exclusive, natural and organic ingredients has been more challenging than we had hoped.

As you might imagine, when we cannot secure even one ingredient, we cannot produce an entire formulation. On the upside, we have been working with new natural and certified organic ingredient sources, but they require a series of prototype batches that must be tested and re-tested to achieve a superior end product—not the least of which includes time-consuming, real-life testing by pediatricians for their feedback and confidence in the products.

While this may not be the answer you were hoping for, we ask your understanding and hope to report good news in the not-too-distant future.

I don't know about you, but I think that's a testament to the company. And as the saying goes, "You get what you pay for." While Shaklee may be a little more pricey, you can be confident that you are getting the best of the best.

Sure, you can get baby products at your local store for about $5-$8, but have you checked out the ingredients? Can you pronounce those ingredients? I'm pretty sure your regular over the counter products (Johnson & Johnson anyone?) does not have the same standard as Shaklee. Remember, you get what you pay for!
