iGalen Review – Legit Product MLM Company or Just Another Scam?
Welcome to my iGalen Review!
Chances are you have already been approached by someone about this company and now you are here to learn more, right?
Or perhaps this is the first time you’ve come across this company and curiosity has led you to investigate further…
Either way, I’m glad you’re here!
In my review, I go over the company, products, compensation plan, and cost to join.
So, without further ado, let’s go!
iGalen Review – The Company
iGalen operates within the MLM nutritional supplement realm.
Having been launched in early 2017, co-founders Chan Heng Fai and Rajen Manicka are at the head of this company.
Fai and Manicka both currently hold executive positions in Holista Colltech Limited.
Fai is listed as Holista Colltech’s Director, while Manicka is credited as Executive Chairman.
I discovered an ASX announcement from February 2015 that revealed that iGalen is a Malaysian MLM company that was launched in January of 2015.
Holista and iGalen drew up a supply contract together a month later in February.
At some point between February 2015 and late 2017, Holista (based in Malaysia) merged with CollTech Australia Ltd.
This is when Holista Colltech was born, which the website claims is ‘headquartered in Perth with extensive operations in Malaysia’.
Holista CollTech obtained a 47% stake in iGalen for $1 in September of 2017.
The iGalen website lists a suite address in Florida, but from what I can tell, it’s mostly run out of Malaysia.
iGalen Reviews – The Products
iGalen currently markets and sells 2 nutritional supplements, known as Uncarb and Gennisi.
Uncarb is advertised as “the world’s first carbohydrate optimizer”.
Its all-natural, patented blend of four ingredients work in tandem to significantly reduce the negative effects of carbohydrates, giving sustained energy throughout the day.
You can currently purchase Uncarb in an 80-capsule bottle.
iGalen was also marketing Emulin up until recently, which was also marketed as an “an all-natural carbohydrates manager”.
A quick peak at the FAQ page on the Uncarb product page of their website asks “How is this different from Emulin?”
EMULIN is a blend of flavonoids that helps the body manage carbohydrates.
Uncarb contains a flavonoid (an extract of onion) in addition to other powerful metabolic-supporting compounds found in other classes of botanicals.
There is no information on which is better: Emulin’s flavonoid blend or Uncarb’s onion extract formula.
iGalen’s other product Gennisi is marketed as an anti-aging and skin-repairing algae-based supplement.
(Gennisi is) a revolutionary and powerful nutritional supplement that has been shown to boost stem cell production in the body.
Gennisi can be bought in a 28-sachet box.
Both the Uncarb and Gennisi products currently retail for $79.95
The iGalen Compensation Plan
Once an iGalen affiliate joins, they must sign up for autoship and then purchase commission rank every 4 weeks.
While retail sales may be possible, it’s probably unlikely.
Looking at the iGalen compensation plan, it seems that most of the commissions that are paid out are linked to ongoing purchases by directly and indirectly sponsored affiliates.
Commission Qualification and Affiliate Ranks
iGalen affiliates are required to buy one or more products every 8 weeks in order to qualify for commissions.
Qualification costs depend on what rank an iGalen affiliate decides to purchase every 8 weeks:
- Distributor rank (one product) costs $79.95
- Bronze rank (three products) costs $215.87
- Silver rank (six products) costs $383.76
- Gold rank (ten products) costs $559.65
- Platinum rank (twenty products) costs $1039.35
iGalen affiliates can earn commissions when they market and sell products to retail customers.
These paid commissions are the difference between the wholesale and retail cost of products ordered (cited as up to 35%).
Seeing that the Distributor ranked affiliates seem to pay the same amount as iGalen retail customers, it’s not clear how retail commissions are paid at this rank.
iGalen affiliates can also earn commissions when they sponsor new affiliates who purchase rank.
- Sponsor a Distributor and receive a 5% commission
- Sponsor a Bronze affiliate and receive a 7.5% commission
- Sponsor a Silver affiliate and receive a 10% commission
- Sponsor a Gold affiliate and receive a 25% commission
- Sponsor a Platinum affiliate and receive a 30% commission
Recruitment commissions recur for every 8-week qualification period.
Residual commissions are tracked and paid through a binary compensation structure.
The binary compensation structure puts an affiliate at the top of a binary team, which then divides into a left and right side.
Level 1 of the binary team holds two positions and level 2 is made by dividing these first two positions into another two positions each, for a total of four positions.
Additional binary team levels are added as needed, with every new level holding two times as many positions as the level above it.
Binary team positions are filled through direct and indirect sponsorship of affiliates.
There is no current limit as to how big the binary team can grow.
iGalen counts up sales volume on each side of the binary team at the end of every week.
What counts as sales volume?
It is affiliate purchases plus any customer retail sales through iGalen.
A cycle happens when 500 BV from one side of the binary team is matched with 1000 BV on the other side.
Commission for the cycle is paid out as a percentage of the 500 BV that is made on the weaker side of the binary team.
The cycle commission percentage amount depends on which rank the iGalen affiliate has purchased.
- Bronze – $25 commission per cycle, capped at $1250 (50 cycles) a week
- Silver – $37.50 commission per cycle, capped at $3750 (100 cycles) a week
- Gold – $50 commission per cycle, capped at $10,000 (200 cycles) a week
- Platinum – $62.50 commission per cycle, capped at $25,000 (400 cycles) a week
Once the BV cycle is matched and paid, it is subtracted from both sides of the binary team.
A Matching Bonus is paid on residual commissions that are earned by downline affiliates.
It is tracked and paid through a unilevel compensation structure.
A unilevel compensation structure puts an affiliate at the top of a unilevel team, with each personally sponsored affiliate put directly below them on level one.
When a level 1 affiliate sponsor new affiliates, they are put on the 2nd level of the original affiliate’s unilevel team.
When a level 2 affiliate sponsors new affiliates, they are put on the 3rd level, and this continues down as many levels as are needed.
This unilevel structure is used to pay the Matching Bonus on up to 5 unilevel team levels.
The amount of levels that the Matching Bonus is paid out on depends on how much an iGalen affiliate spends on rank:
- Bronze affiliates earn a 5% match on level 1 (personally sponsored affiliates)
- Silver affiliates earn a 5% match on level 1 and 4% on level 2
- Gold affiliates earn a 5% match on level 1, 4% on level 2, 3% on level 3 and 2% on level 4
- Platinum affiliates earn a 5% match on level 1, 4% on level 2, 3% on level 3, 2% on level 4 and 1% on level 5
The Leadership Bonus seems to be volume bonus in the unilevel team, which is paid down 10 unilevel team levels.
- Ruby ranked affiliates earn a 3% Leadership Bonus on level 1 (personally sponsored affiliates)
- Emerald ranked affiliates earn a 3% Leadership Bonus on levels 1 and 2
- Diamond ranked affiliates earn a 3% Leadership Bonus on levels 1 to 3
- Double Diamond ranked affiliates earn a 3% Leadership Bonus on levels 1 to 4
- Triple Diamond ranked affiliates earn a 3% Leadership Bonus on levels 1 to 5
- Crown ranked affiliates earn a 3% Leadership Bonus on levels 1 to 6
- Double Crown ranked affiliates earn a 3% Leadership Bonus on levels 1 to 8
- Royale Crown ranked affiliates earn a 3% Leadership Bonus on levels 1 to 9
I couldn’t find any rank qualification criteria for Ruby or higher ranks.
A monthly Lifestyle Bonus is available to Ruby and higher ranked iGalen affiliates:
- Rubies receive $250 a month
- Emeralds receive $350 a month
- Diamonds receive $500 a month
- Double Diamonds receive $750 a month
- Triple Diamonds receive $1000 a month
- Crowns receive $1500 a month
- Double Crowns receive $2500 a month
- Royale Crowns receive $5000 a month
And again, I couldn’t find any rank qualification criteria for Ruby or higher ranks.
Cost to Join iGalen
The cost to join iGalen as an affiliate is $29.95 a year.
Newly joined affiliates are told that they are required to buy a minimum of “one bottle of iGalen product” every 4 weeks in order to qualify for commissions.
This means that there is an added cost of $79.95 to $1039.35 every four weeks.
- Distributor – $79.95 every four weeks
- Bronze – $215.87 every four weeks
- Silver – $383.76 every four weeks
- Gold – $559.65 every four weeks
- Platinum – $1039.35 every four weeks
As with many companies, the more an affiliate spends on their affiliate membership the more income they can potentially make through iGalen’s compensation plan.
Verdict on iGalen
Whew! That was a lot of information…
So, now it’s time to break it all down…
First things first…this company has actual product…so that’s a good start
While I can’t say for sure if their products are effective or not (seeing as there isn’t really any literature or reviews out there about it) I also can’t say for sure that it doesn’t work either…
But one thing stuck out to me…they describe it as “onion extract”.
I certainly hope it’s a lot more than that, because if it isn’t then it is seriously overpriced!
The company claims that their onion extract helps with carbohydrate management, but I couldn’t find any real link between these two things except on the iGalen website itself…
Their other product, Gennisi, is an algae-based product, and while there have been a few of these types of MLM products in the past, this product is claimed to be harvested from Klamath Lake in Oregon.
I found bottles of this type of algae on Amazon for 16.99 for 60 capsules, while iGalen sells a 28 pack for 79.95.
So, there pricing doesn’t really make sense nor is it really competitive if you know where to look.
So, what am I saying here?
Well, if you are thinking about joining this company, my suggestion would be to purchase the products before signing up.
Try them out yourself and decide if you like them and if you really believe in the product.
Because it’s much easier to be successful in a business if you truly back the product you are selling.
