Jeunesse provides products to distributors at a lower cost called Wholesale Price. By selling products at retail prices, distributors can earn the retail sales income.
Jeunesse gives a commission of 15 to 40% on each product sale.
Moreover, Jeunesse provides products to repeated customers (called preferred customers) at a special price named Preferred Price which can be up to 25% lower than the retail price.
Here commission of distributors is wholesale price minus the preferred price, which is lower than the actual retail sales. But in this, the CV of the preferred customer’s purchase is accumulated in the distributor’s PGV and GV, which will be further used to calculate different incomes.
2. Retail Sales Bonus

To Be Concluded
This was all about the products and compensation plan of Jeunesse Global.
Long story short, Jeunesse seems a very upstanding opportunity but few are confused with its legalities.
Is Jeunnese a Pyramid Scheme?
No, Jeunnese is not a pyramid scheme. It is a direct selling company giving commission to its distributors based on personal and downline product sales.
It is legally operating in 88+ countries. Jeunesse can’t be called a MLM scam, but it has dark sides to know.
False Claims and Overpriced Products
If we talk about Jeunesse Products, they seem premium in quality but like most MLM companies, they are extremely overpriced.
Moreover, there are some complaints regarding customer and delivery services. Sometimes products don’t even ship properly on time. You can check a comment of Trust Pilot users after a bad experience with Jeunesse.
Jeunesse’s all four doctors claim that “some products can manipulate human genes and cells, even going so far as to say that Jeunesse products can slow the ageing process and cure cancer”
In reality, Jeunesse products are just cosmetic & health supplements, they can’t cure any diseases.
Multiple Lawsuits against Jeunesse
For false advertisement and deceptive marketing, Jeunnese has been taken to the courtroom for their so-called anti-ageing products.
Randy Ray the founder of Jeunesse has been involved in multiple lawsuits, and complaints. Randy is additionally associated with other entities which operate as an MLM violating Florida statutes about false and misleading advertising and prohibition of illegal lotteries and pyramid clubs.
Moreover, Jeunesse distributors falsely promise of earning thousands of dollars per week.
Illegally Operating in China
Jeunesse does not have an import license for China.
As per Ghanzhou Customs authorities, Jeunesse products are smuggled into the country via Tianyi provision Company through Hong Kong. Later, products are smuggled into Ghanzhou and then distributed nationally by Guanzhou Ruizang Trading Co.
Local media reports that Jeunesse products worth 1.5 billion yuan were seized in china on May 19th, 2020. Two Jeunesse China market leaders, Zhao and Wang were arrested by the Chinese police for the offence.
