Thousands of Melaleuca customers and Marketing Executives flocked to Salt Lake City this May in a resurgence of the highly anticipated in-person conference. Due to the importance of practicing social distancing over the last couple of years, this was the first large-scale face-to-face gathering for Melaleuca since 2019.
This year, Melaleuca members assembled at the Salt Palace Convention Center to meet new friends that they may have previously only known virtually.

Anticipating the launch of new products, attendees were not disappointed when The Wellness Company announced new lines and new innovations, expanding and improving the 400+ products Melaleuca already offers.

Following those announcements was the introduction of all-new Affinia, a beautifully scented total-body care line for women, and Alloy, total-body care for men, including a complete regimen for face and body skin care.

These single-use packets have enough 12x concentrated formula to make one 16 fl. oz. spray bottle, making the product easier to test and share — all while reducing plastic waste.
