About the company (culled from the company website)
Jeunesse Global Holdings, LLC was founded in 2009 by Randy Ray, CEO; Wendy Lewis, COO and they operate from their global head office in Altamonte Springs, Florida, USA. The company’s product range is currently centred around personal skin care anti-aging products and also nutrition products which they distribute to over 85 countries around the globe, using a MLM business model to distribute their product through over 4 million independent distributors.

By focusing on the health, longevity, and renewal of cells, Jeunesse Global helps people enjoy vibrant, youthful results that last.
Jeunesse recently acquired a top company, Monavie-Mynt with over 4 million distributors, so this is a company that plans to be around for quite a while and seems to know where they are going.

I am sure some of you are screaming: Yes, yes their products are good and make me feel young! SHOW ME THE MONEY!! So lets look at the compensation plan, which is how you get paid in Jeunesse Global, and of course Jeunesse Nigeria.
Jeunesse has 6 ways to earn money.
- Retail Sales– Where distributors can purchase products at distributor price and retail for profit.
- First order bonus – Distributors earn from 25 USD to 250 USD for each customer they enroll on any of the starter packages.
- Team Commission – Distributors need to do 100 Points of volume to qualify for this, plus enroll two distributors who do 100 Points of volume each. And then when one team does 300 points and the other does 600 points, then you earn team bonuses of 35 USD, which is close to 7,000 Naira.
- Leadership Matching Bonus –You can earn Leadership Matching Bonuses on the Team Commissions earned by your personally enrolled team. You can earn this bonus on up to seven levels of your team in each line of sponsorship
- Customer Acquisition Incentive- Enroll 5 personal customers on autoship to qualify to earn 5% of team earnings. If you do the same for 10 personal customers you earn 10%. These commissions are on your level 1. But if any of your customers sponsors someone in their first month, they count as distributors, and they will not count towards your qualifying customers.
- Diamond Bonus Pool – Jeunesse shares 3% of their global sales amongst qualifying distributors.
Plus the incentives of Travel, etc which are found in any decent solid company. You can download a compensation plan sheet here and delve more.
Jeunesse Global and Jeunesse Nigeria is a solid and very powerful MLM company, and with solid products.
However, my own personal misgivings are:
In Nigeria, Anti-Aging is basically reserved for a certain class of people. So the products could be seen as too exclusive, and not cutting across social strata. I would prefer a product which moves fast, and which most people would want. i.e consumables. Most of the Nigerian Demographic might not be slanted towards anti-aging.
They use a binary plan, which for me is a no no. Balancing points on two legs is a pain, and you always get paid on the weaker leg in a binary plan.
The first orders bonuses…well for me are a bit tiny. For instance, if I bring in someone into Jeunesse on a basic registration package, I earn 25 dollars commission, and I can earn up to $250 on the highest package. I would prefer a higher fast start bonus to ginger my new reps.
The qualifications for the team commissions to me are a bit too complex. I have to be active with 100 Points in volume,plus enroll two distributors who do 100 Points of volume each. And then when one team does 300 points and the other does 600 points, then you earn team bonuses of 35 USD, which is close to 7,000 Naira. The qualifications for the Jeunesse team volume mean that if I do not have two distributors doing 100 points on my left and right, I do not get my bonuses.
The Diamond Bonus pool for Jeunesse global and Jeunesse Nigeria is a good idea. They share 3% amongst qualifying distributors. 2% is shared by africans and is called African founders club. And is shared every quarter.
One thing I like is the customer acquisition bonus. This allows you to build a business based on distributors and customers, so since the company sells to customers also, regulators cannot classify this as a pyramid scheme.
Jeunesse is an excellent company, with good solid products, and excellent for anyone who wants to get into the anti aging market. For me, the compensation plan is way too complex, and the doubts I shared above would make me give this opportunity a pass over. But if anti-aging is your thing, and you have passion for the products, by all means fire ahead. I am interested in trying the anti-aging products, so if you’re a Jeunesse Nigeria distributor reading this, abeg, hook your guy up.
