Nu Skin was founded in 1984 and is based out of Provo, UT. The company sells high-quality personal care products, specializing in anti-aging products and dietary supplements.
Nu Skin has also become quite well-known for their tooth-whitening toothpaste. In 1996, the company went public and was listed on the New York Stock Exchange. The company has over 50 international markets and nearly 1,000,000 independent distributors.
The company currently does not charge any fees to start as an independent distributor.
Nu Skin has a research partnership with Stanford University. On the Department of Dermatology website, Stanford has a statement about its partnership with Nu Skin to research human skin aging and skin care.
The project has $1.5 million in backing from Nu Skin. Also, Stanford has received $5.8 million in research funding from Nu Skin over the years to continue its clinical study and research to identify the genetic regulators related to the aging of human skin.
Nu Skin also has several professional athletic sponsorships. Since the 1992-1993 NBA season, Nu Skin has sponsored the Utah Jazz half-time dancers. Also, Nu Skin is one of the premier sponsors of the BYU athletic program. In Provo, Nu Skin also sponsors the American Freedom Festival in Provo, one of the largest national July 4th celebrations.
We found "high-end" skin care products such as moisturizers, gels, and creams that were noticeably less expensive than competing brands. One such item was listed under the Pharmanex brand.
The Tegreen 97, 30-count skin cell protection capsules were available for $20. Other similar items with other MLM providers were often more expensive. Nu Skin's famous whitening toothpaste is especially affordable compared to other similar products.
As a part of the breakaway compensation plan, we found that distributors and direct sellers could earn as much as a 25 percent commission on retail sales volumes. 25 percent commission is pretty generous in the industry.
With the breakaway compensation plan, distributors also have a chance to earn a steady passive income by recruiting talented distributors who later form breakaway legs, earning sponsors an override commission for each breakaway leg created.
Most of Nu Skin's lawsuits were filed early on. In recent years, we didn't find lawsuits filed by distributors or customers alleging faults with their products.
It's completely free to join Nu Skin as a reseller. And unlike many other MLMs, they do not require any monthly purchases. This makes it a very appealing part-time business opportunity for resellers.
Nu Skin's recent controversy in the news has been related to their recent expansion in China. According to a 2014 securities fraud class action lawsuit, Nu Skin investors who had invested in the company from 2013-2014 were eligible to participate in the lawsuit.
Allegedly, Nu Skin had overstated its assets and other financial resources, causing the company's common stock to dip as part of their expansion into China. This matter has since been resolved, and Nu Skin's business in China has recovered, producing more than one billion in sales annually in China alone. In the early 1990s, Nu Skin ran into some problems with the FTC over their MLM business model.
In five states, NuSkin had violated laws by overstating earned income. Nu Skin paid a six-figure sum to the FTC and signed a document where they would no longer make certain claims about the efficacy of their products. Also, Nu Skin ceased from making false statements about earning potentials for its consultants. When put under the scrutiny of ConsumerLabs.com, Nu Skin's Pharmanex brand failed to include the correct labeling for Vitamin A in certain products.

NuSkin has provided me with a life worth living in more ways than one. It has given my parents the ability to gift me with everything I could ever need. NuSkins products have given me a flawless complexion, white teeth, and an overall welnesss that is complimented daily by those who meet me. Thank you NuSkin for all you have given me.
I absolutely have loved the products NuSkin has to offer. My overall quality of life and health have really improved since discovering them. Their line of AgeLoc products and the AP-24 line are fantastic!
Amazing products. Distributor service is above and beyond.. Have loved every minute.
I love being a rep and how the system works. I also love the quality of the products

Everything about this company is 5-star. They are now trading on the NYSE. Distributing for NuSkin has given us a wonderful lifestyle -- time and financial freedom. Thank you, NuSkin!
Nu Skin is the best Skin Care and Wellness company I know. I've been using their products for years and they always work as advertised. I decided to become a distributor with them and love their pay structure and incentives. They treat top tier reps the same as lower tier reps. They are innovative and always looking to improve their products, technology, and business structure. They always listen to feedback and work to apply it. A cannot speak highly enough about this company!
I've been using Nu Skin products for over 8 years now and love them, it really does what it says and more. And customer service is great too, they always ready to help
The products are of phenomenal quality, award winning and often featured in magazines like Vogue and Cosmopolitan. The company is innovation focused and has 75 in-house phd scientists. Nu Skin is listen on the New York stock exchange and is a multi billion dollar company with solid financial performance. The compensation plan is very generous and cannot really compare to other companies. Sales representatives are paid weekly and enjoying sharing bonuses.
I've been using Nu Skin products since 2011 and I simply wouldn't be without them. The first product recommended to me was the energy supplement "Vitality", available as a standalone product or as part of the R2 product which also includes a night time detox supplement. I still take this every day and have added the multivitamin "Lifepak", the green tea supplement "Tegreen", the "Reishimax" as well as shower and shaving products too. I recommend Nu Skin products all the time to people - I just love it!
Love the products and the people. I’ve been working with the company for a few years now around my traditional business. It’s super flexible especially for people like myself that love to travel.
Waouhhh was very sceptical but OMG when you start using their products your lines and wrinkles are reducing
I have been using the Galvanic Spa for one and a half years and my skin definitely changed! I have already so many compliments about it!
I love everything about NuSkin, from the product to the company itself. NuSkin is an amazing company to be a part of and I love their high quality products. A side note: Shipping is always quick! I love trying new products and as a distributor the velocity plan is great. Customer service has always been a positive experience for me.
Such an incredible company to work with the people really are your family, Or they treat you as such! ❤️💓
They have fantastic products, that actually work.
NuSkin has blessed my life in so many ways. Especially as a single mother to 3. FREE to sign up! No monthly fee’s! Work from anywhere! And the best products I’ve ever tried! I love this company so much!
Great products that are backed by innovative science! The company is always moving forward and doing what they can to be an incredible partner.
I love that the products are top quality! Great pricing and great results! Fast service and great representatives.
This company has been amazing to work with. I have loved my experience with Nu Skin.
Top quality products, proven success and amazing opportunities for growth!
Amazing products; real science. I came from a 20 years corporate background, graduate degree education. We did our due diligence on the company before we started the business. It has been 9 years for us and now we both have reached a point where we work from home now. Nu Skin has absolutely changed our lives. It’s not easy nor it’s not for everyone who aspire to achieve high level income, but it is absolutely possible and many has done it. It takes work and commitment. Just like any business. I’d say it’s the best company in direct sales. Pay out the most! We are grateful.
Costumer service is amazing with products I had tried and didn’t like they either send me something different or refunded me money.
I love the products, use them everyday, the customer service is Amazing, product delivery is fast...They have very good sales periodically. Plus the 30 day money back guarantee is awesome...
I was skeptical when I first heard about NuSkin and the opportunity they claim to give. After doing some research I decided it was worth it to give them a chance. My experience with them has been nothing short of exceptional. The customer service, the people who represent the company, the products- they are all top notch!
I am a huge fan of Nu Skin. They have a great range of products that do what they say they will. They are always innovating and launching new products and devices that have been game changers for me. The Galvanic Spa And LumiSpa are absolute must haves! My skin has never looked better.
Amazing products, support for Brand Reps, and a community of people who understand what self reliance means. Awesome guarantee on products.
Nu Skin's products are fabulous and the compensation plan for distributors is unlike anything else I have seen. I love feeling valued and am proud to be an ambassador for the company.
I’ve been super happy with every product I’ve tried from NuSkin. I started with their whitening toothpaste, not thinking it would work. Well, it did work and worked very well. Then I looked into their anti-aging devices and saw how much research and time went into everyone of them. So I decided to try the Lumispa. What a difference it has made. Love it. I also am thrilled that they have a money back guarantee on their products. I had a product that stopped working and they refunded my money, no problem. I’ve been totally satisfied with my NuSkin experience. Products = 5 Stars Delivery= 5 Stars Warranty=5 Stars Customer service =5 Stars
NuSkin has the best products I have ever found and they have amazing customer service. Every interaction I have had with them has been a pleasure! My orders come quickly and in great condition.
AMAZING Company that Rewards you for all your hard work. Excellent products
I have loved every thing I've tried! I can't believe how much of a difference I can see in my skin after using there products for a little over a year now! You can or a price tag on your face! It's the first thing anyone sees so investing time and money is most definitely a priority for me!
This company has the best products that are scientifically developed and guaranteed. These products really work and are affordable. It also provides a great opportunity to generate an income. Awesome insentives and the people that work with them is their best asset!
It is a modern and efficent company. It really looks out for their customers and employers. I have no doubt that they will continue to grow!
I am actually a 2nd generation independent distributor with Nu Skin. My dad has built a organization that has earned him well over $20 million dollars in commissions and I have actually built a group that provides a full time income for me and my family of 5. Nu Skin is now free to join, and no longer requires a monthly purchase. In addition to wholesale pricing for members, you also can enroll in auto orders to get free points you can use on products. The compensation plan was also enhanced with more focus placed on new distributors making more money, while also maintaining and increasing the long term potential of the business as well. Nu Skin is well positioned for growth (Went from 2.3 billion in 2017 and tracking for 2.7-2.9 billion in 2018) and growing fast than ever in over 50 countries.
Products are proven and awesome, new compensation plan as of June 1 is perfect and fixes a lot that people complained about!
is made propagating to the toothpaste that does not have fluoride, but the ingredients are monofluorophosphate
We like NuSkin because besides de 20-30% Martin on direct sales, compensation plan also pays out about 44% of sales. No personal purchase necessary, so with team volume can make money. Legal Issues in China and elsewherew ere solved.
The Sales Requirements are no longer required. This site needs to update their facts. Nu Skin has the best Fluoride Whitening Toothpaste on the market.
Extraordinary products, best compensationplan, best company
Used products from several other companies... difficult to change auto delivery/reward programs with most... NUSkin has been amazing! Would highly recommend for the science base products or the business...
Best Products, best compensation, best people, best innovation, best company!
I can't believe it in just 2 months on the products y span g3 juice life pak teegreen and r2. Injuries that plagued my life has completely disappeared . Really bad migraine , really sore feet in the mornings and heavy lifting injuries on my arms and back all gone . I'm in my 40's and feel like 20's so back to the boxing ring on these i call them super man pills . My antioxidants score is now over the roof and was very low when i started no wonder my body wasn't healing its self.
Absolutely the best network marketing company ever.
One of the best products that you can find on earth and generous reward for distributors
Nuskin has the absolutely best products on the market today !! Their new antiaging technology Age Loc is far ahead of the rest of the market !! And the company is rock solid and takes good care of their distributors. And they DO have a big range of products, QUALITY products !!!
Too many distributors selling products online. They sell under wholesale in order to generate volume. Nuskin "claims" to have a department dedicated to eliminating unauthorized online sells. However, this market continues to explode in growth while Nuskin does nothing. I say that as a former distributor. After months of reporting one business in particular to one of the "department" reps, I realized nothing would be done to stop it. Nuskin still makes their money so they could care less. Their distributors get the short end of the stick. If you leave the company or do not make your quota (which is very high) for 3 months starting over at the bottom of the pile is your only option. When my sales dropped, my upline then received all monies that I worked very hard to earn. No compensation...
Nu Skin is the best in anti-ageing industry because of their innovation called AGELOC (Gene expression science which can reset human old gene expression into youth gene).
Excellent products the latest Ageloc Y Span has turned around my adrenal burnout. Need to work with good upline and be aware that it is not an overnight success industry it takes time and skills to build a great distributorship. However the company support ie call centre etc are excellent.
Not a wide range of products. Barely anything for men & children. Delivery should be cheaper considering how long it takes for the products to get to your home. The webiste for products is confusing & I spent more than I needed to and never earned any money with this company.
No products beat Nu Skin's.
