Shaklee Quality Safe For Children. During the call today, Our C.E.O., Roger Barnett, was discussing our exploding business, and the high demand for our products right now. He was discussing the great challenge we face in getting the raw materials we need from around the world.
Because Shaklee quality is such a huge issue with our sales leaders and customers, I thought you might want to read the transcript of this exchange between V.P. of sales for North America, Jeff Pierson – and Roger Barnett.
Jeff Pierson: There was a question in the chat that asked, “Are we going to compromise on our standards in an effort to source raw materials?”
Roger Barnett: “Well, we have a tradition for the last 64 years. If we do not find quality material, we will go out of stock. We’ve always done that, and we always will. We will never put into our product, anything that is not 100% vetted to Shaklee standards. So, please rest assured that we would not sacrifice, or compromise, any of our quality standards – or any of our testing standards to get you products.
Because one thing this company has, and the one thing we have earned over the last six plus decades, is trust. And we will never violate that trust – both for you, or your customers.
And basically the principle is very simple. For every single product that Shaklee makes … the question is, would I give it to my children? What would our scientists give it to their children? And when we provide it for you – the answer is, of course, we will never make anything that we would not give to our children. And that’s what makes us different. And so, 100% – yes – we will always maintain our quality standards.”

We’re committed to making truly sustainable products that are safe for you, your home, and your planet.
Shaklee Difference – Did you know not all vitamins are created equal?
Shaklee products – and the quality and science behind them – are unmatched in the industry. But how familiar are you with the many elements of the Shaklee Difference? Even if you think you know what makes this company and our products stand apart from the rest, refresh your knowledge with this list of Ten Key Steps that we take to ensure that Shaklee supplements are the best in the marketplace:
Shaklee conducts more than 100,000 tests annually to ensure the safety and efficacy of our products.
Each and every lot of Shaklee products is 100% tested to ensure and guarantee that each and every ingredient that is part of our label claims is present in the appropriate amounts.
All ingredients in Shaklee products are qualified under the incredibly stringent Shaklee protocol, unique in the industry, which tests for up to 350 chemical contaminants including pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals, solvent residues, etc.
Our Shaklee scientists create formulations so that the key active ingredients are included at clinically efficacious levels, often significantly higher than many companies in the market.
Each product is formulated with nutritional ingredients that have been extensively studied to confirm safety and efficacy. Our products don’t follow “fads” but incorporate scientific and/or epidemiologic evidence of need and benefit.
Shaklee employs advanced delivery systems to enhance bioavailability – and these systems are tested to confirm their nutrient delivery advantages.
All ingredients must be acceptable from the standpoint of the Shaklee philosophy, as well as detailed scrutiny as to their safety. We don’t simply accept the Certificate of Analysis that many other companies accept but, rather, retest for contaminants to confirm the Certificate of Analysis is accurate.
Shaklee has an unwavering commitment to avoid the use of artificial flavours, sweeteners, and added preservatives. We use only non-genetically modified soy protein.
Shaklee developed many of the standards and protocols for manufacturing that are now referred to as Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs).
Ongoing proof of our product performance is demonstrated by:
More than 100 scientific publications, 90-plus in peer-reviewed journals
The Landmark Study, the only study of its kind, which showed that people who took Shaklee supplements over a period of 20 years had markedly better health than both single-multivitamin and non-supplement users
Shaklee products powering athletes to win 188 medals
Shaklee products fueling world explorers, 7 of Time-Life’s Greatest Adventures of All Time, and NASA space shuttle astronauts with a special rehydration product (called Astro-Ade)
