monat global mlm review

Have you been approached by a Monat Global distributor or even Market Partner? I would think twice before purchasing or becoming a part of their VIP Program. This article will help you learn everything you need to about the company, its products, and their VIP Program.

History of Monat Global

Monat Global launched in 2014, and it operates in the personal care MLM niche. Monat Global was initially founded in 2001. Back then, the company’s name was L’EUDINE Global. It was based out in Maracaibo, Venezuela and Miami, Florida.

Established initially as L’EUDINE GLOBAL, the company specializes in beauty and wellness sectors. This multi-level marketing company was based out in Florida.

Now, Alcora Corporation owns Monat Global.

Monat Products

In just a few years, Monat Global has sold over 20 million units of its products. They claim their products are safe, without any parabens, harmful colors, or fragrances.

Monat products include:

  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Scalp Rejuvenation Oil
  • Hair Rejuvenating Vitamins/Supplements

Currently, the company offers the following products:

  • Restructuring Hair Care
  • Advanced Hydrating Hair Care
  • Volume System
  • Hydration System
  • Stylized System
  • Magnify System
  • Effortless System
  • Densify Duo
  • R3
  • Confidence System
  • Monat Black System
  • Monat Junior

Monat Global also offers products for pets. At the moment of writing, they have a cleansing dog wash and freshen up deodorizing spray.

Moreover, customers all over the United States think otherwise. Hundreds of women share similar stories of hair loss and scalp sores. Some women claim Monat products made clumps of their hair to start falling out.

Furthermore, the FDA has not tested Monat products. This fact is of extreme importance, especially if you are considering their VIP Program. If you think about it, if a haircare company wants to establish a legitimate business in the United States, then they must have its products tested by the government.

Monat Global Vip Program

By joining the Monat Vip Program, customers are promised extraordinary advantages. After paying the fee of $19,99, you agree to purchase three Flexship orders. However, for your order to qualify as a Flexship order, it has to be at least $83.

Moreover, if you decide you want to cancel your subscription, you will need to read their terms and conditions strictly. If you wish to cancel your subscription before making these three Flexship order, you will have to pay a cancellation fee of $25. If you have only one Flexship order left, then the cancellation fee will be $19.

You will experience another negative side of the subscription if you want to return your purchase (or even if they have sent you items by mistake). Monat Global offer VIP Customers a 100% money-back guarantee for a period of 30-days. However, you will have to send back the items you want to return and pay for the return shipping.

The promised VIP Perks of becoming a Vip Member are:

  • Free Shipping (if your is $83 or more)
  • 15% off (on Monat naturally based products)
  • Free Limited Products worth $25 for each Flexship order worth $83 or more
  • $20 Bonus for each friend that signs up as a VIP

Monat Customer Reviews

Although Monats products help support healthy-looking skin and hair, most customers think otherwise. Currently, there are over 700 Better Business Bureau complaints as well as 300 class-action lawsuits filed against Monat Global.

These customers have all experienced adverse side effects ranging from scalp irritation to complete hair loss. Even though Monat advertises its products as naturally -based and safe, these users disagree and have filed complaints. Some customers claim that once these side effects begin, the adverse effects continue for weeks or months after they have stopped using Monat’s products.


To defend their reputation, Monat claims that initial hair loss is all part of a purported “detox” period that comes before the regenerative properties of the products kicking in. The worst part is when Monat tries to encourage these users to buy even more products.  Due to the misleading information about Monat’s products, many unsatisfied customers need to go through a recovery and stabilizing the process.

Conclusion:

Monat Global has generated massive revenues for the past four years. The company has made millions selling their products is Monat a pyramid scheme? Are intentionally making employees, known as “Market Partners,” sell hair care products to mostly family and friends? Is recruit adaditional Market Partners all part of the scheme?
