America's Best-in-State Employers

Nu Skin announced it has completed its goal, set in 2019, to assess, score and improve the environmental impact score of its top 20 products. The company’s initial changes are estimated to have saved at least 16.5 tons of paper and 21 tons of plastic during 2020.

The company’s previously announced sustainability efforts are also on track for completion, including evaluating 100 percent of its products for improved environmental impact score by the end of 2023 and ensuring all packaging will be recycled, recyclable, reusable, reduced, or renewable by 2030.

The company’s sustainability logo will appear on the back of packaging that represents a sustainable change like reduced packaging, sustainable sourcing of ingredients or reduced carbon footprint.

“During 2020, we listened to our sales leaders and customers and worked closely with them to understand their expectations when it comes to sustainability,” said Ritch Wood, Nu Skin CEO. “By including them in the process of developing our sustainability strategy and with their cooperation on what they hope to see in a sustainable future, we believe our sustainability strategy will lead to impactful changes.”

Nu Skin’s sustainability highlights from 2020 include:

  • Nutricentials bottles made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic and tubes made from approximately 34% post-consumer recycled plastic
  • Switching Epoch Baobob Body Butter jars to environmentally friendly tubes, effectively reducing packaging materials by 70%
  • Being a founding member of the Utah Sustainable Business Coalition
  • Winning 9 sustainability awards for clean beauty products, sustainable sales leader efforts, and waste and packaging reductions
