How do I know that Oriflame is not a pyramid scheme?
A good way to begin is to ask yourself these three questions:
1. Do you risk financial loss by being involved with this company?
If the answer to this question is yes, we say “be careful.” It may be legitimate but most direct sales firms do not require any substantial investment or risk of financial loss.
2. Is the money you are going to earn primarily coming from the sale of the products or services to the ultimate consumer of those products or service?
If the answer to this question is no, and money earned is coming from some other source (e.g. recruiting or headhunting fees, inventory loading, sale of sales kits and sales aids), you then have an illegal pyramid scheme and we advise people to stay away. It is that simple.
Please note that we include in our definitions the sales to salespeople for their personal or family consumption as sales to the ultimate consumer. There is nothing unethical or illegal in compensation based on personal or family consumption, so long as the amount purchased for such personal and family consumption is reasonable and the products are reasonably priced.
3. Would you buy the company’s product if you were not a member of the sales organization?
If the answer to that is no, you would not buy it, then why would you want to sell for a company whose product you do not think worthy of purchasing, whether for your own or family’s or friends’ usage.
