Herbalife would like to clear up something: faces.
The global nutrition company has announced a new line of skincare products, called Herbalife SKIN Clearify, to treat acne, blemishes, and other dermatological conditions that affect consumers ages 14 to 35 years old. “In addition to helping people live healthier, happier lives through better nutrition, Herbalife Nutrition is working to enhance the skin care and self-esteem of millions of people,” said Ibi Fleming, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Herbalife North American Region.
According to the company, the active ingredient in the new products is salicylic acid, which is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and is on the World Health Organization’s Model List of Essential Medicines. SKIN Clearify—which can be purchased individually or in a kit for about $70—isn’t Herbalife’s first foray into this channel. The company has 16 products in its skincare line, including moisturizer, eye cream, cleansers, toner, scrub, and sunscreen.
Herbalife reported second quarter net sales of $1.2 billion, compared with $1.1 billion for the same period last year. Net sales for 2015 were $4.5 billion.
