Nerium International today announced it has surpassed $1 billion in cumulative revenue in under four years of business. According to Direct Selling News research, the anti-aging company is one of the industry’s fastest ever to reach the billion-dollar milestone.
The announcement comes on the heels of Nerium’s ranking as the No. 1 consumer products and services company and the No. 12 company overall on this year’s Inc. 500, a list of the fastest-growing private companies in America.
“When we started this company almost four years ago, we knew we had something very special,” Jeff Olson, Nerium Founder and CEO, said in a statement. “That we’ve sold over $1 billion of product in four short years is a testament to the incredible products and opportunities Nerium has to offer. I’m extremely proud of what we’ve accomplished—we’ve changed thousands of lives for the better.”
Dallas-based Nerium launched in August 2011 with just one product in its portfolio. After topping sales of $100 million in its first year, the company began expanding its line of anti-aging products and opening international markets. Nerium now operates in Canada, Mexico and South Korea; however, 95 percent of total sales have come from the U.S.
“Nerium has been on the fast-track for growth since its launch,” said Direct Selling News Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Lauren Lawley Head. “The company is one of the youngest ever to break into the Top 40 of the DSN Global 100 list of the world’s largest direct selling companies, was among the fastest-growing of the Global 100 companies last year, with a net sales increase of 84 percent, and was one of only 16 companies to grow by $100 million or more.”
