Youngevity is described in a troubling report by TINA as a continuation of BlackOxygen Organics.
BlackOxygen Organics, or BOO as it was referred to, was possibly the worst MLM failure of the previous year.
BOO sold Canadian bog mud that was taken from a location within a short distance near a dangerous industrial waste disposal plant. I’m sure you can guess how that ended up.
Due to potential health dangers, BlackOxygen Organics products were recalled by Health Canada in October 2021.
Stop using these medications. Don’t give the medications to kids or teenagers.
Near the end of November, BlackOxygen Organics closed. A class action lawsuit was launched against BOO around the same time, claiming the business supplied supplements that “are harmful for human use and ingestion.”
The BOO class action is still ongoing as of the time of publishing.
The FDA acknowledged that BOO’s goods included “elevated amounts of lead and arsenic” in December, one month later.
Regulators in the US have, regrettably, taken no further action against BOO or its CEO Marc Saint Onge.
This takes us to Youngevity, who, according to TINA, Saint Onge promptly contacted after shutting down BOO.
TINA reported on September 12th, citing an email issued by Youngevity to BOO distributors, that stated;
Through connections they shared, the management team of Black Oxygen Organics contacted Youngevity to see if there could be a way we could help them with their displaced Brand Partners and Customers.
They told Youngevity that they still have a close-knit group that is interested in them and that they would want to go somewhere where they can still take part in a compensation program. Youthfulness has that.
The BOO distributor database was presumably purchased by Youngevity from Saint Onge for an unknown fee.
It’s possible that Saint Onge also sold Youngevity the distribution rights to BOO’s outlawed goods.
A pamphlet for Youngevity’s new fulvic acid product, “Midnight Minerals,” was sent with the unwanted email.
TINA contacted Youngevity to inquire whether Midnight Minerals was a rebranded version of BOO’s restricted supplements. Youngevity did not comment.
I looked into this. The country of origin for Youngevity’s Midnight Minerals mask is not disclosed.
A Youngevity corporate webinar from June was the closest I could get to concluding that Midnight Minerals is drawn from Marc Saint Onge’s BOO industrial waste-polluted swamp.
Midnight Minerals’ CEO, Steve Wallach, spoke on the webinar and made the following pitch:
[11:46] Additionally, humic and fulvic acids are found in plants. Additionally, they are frequently linked to concentrated plant materials, such as the plant minerals found in Utah.
like the Canadian fulvic minerals from which this product is made. That originates from a Canadian peat bog.
All things considered, that essentially proves Youngevity is bringing in tainted bog muck that BlackOxygen Organics has banned under a different moniker.
The catch is that Wallach was referring to a brand-new ingestible product, although Youngevity had previously introduced Midnight Minerals as a skin mask and specifically stated that it was “not designed for human consumption.”
[12:05] This brand-new item is not yet on the market, but it soon will be. Its name, Midnight Minerals Fulvic Mins, reflects the fact that we have been working on it for quite some time.
Additionally, this is a dietary supplement that must be consumed. Therefore, there is mixing but no taste. Consequently, this product will be accessible in around a week.
Youngevity’s website states that Midnight Minerals Fulvic Mins are “pre-order through June 30, 2022” as of mid-September.
You may add Fulvic Mins to your basket, but Youngevity hasn’t yet sent it, based on the fact that there are no reviews yet.
It’s unclear whether or not this has anything to do with the FDA restriction. Strangely, Fulvic Mins aren’t accessible 2.5 months after Wallach promised they would be.
However, Youngevity’s decision to stop selling “poison in a capsule” is a success for consumer health.
But what about the mask from Midnight Minerals?
That takes us full circle to TINA, who shows that former BOO distributors continued to consume Midnight Minerals despite consumption warnings;
A less than subtle homage to previous BOO bog munchers can be found on Youngevity’s website without ever leaving it;
That quote is from the April 2022 review section of the Midnight Minerals skin mask shop page on Youngevity’s website.
We had distributors on social media consuming the poison, spitting out their intestinal lining, and publishing pictures of dissected excrement on social media to highlight how terrible things with BOO become before authorities intervened.
If that wasn’t frightening enough, some of the images purported to be feces samples taken from their kids:
Now, Youngevity is selling the same tainted bog muck that the FDA forbade importation to the same insane clientele for profit.
Regarding Youngevity’s scheme to target former BOO distributors, endangering customers, and failing to reveal circumvention of an FDA prohibition on the importation of tainted bog soil, at the very least there is an FTC case to account for.
According to a Midnight Minerals Safety and Use Report available on Youngevity’s website, arsenic, cadmium, mercury, and lead are present.
The “accidental intake” of earth from Midnight Minerals is the subject of the report. Distributors of BOO were shoving this crap down literally.
