Nu Skin Marks 30th Anniversary

July 11, 2014

Celebrates with 30 days of giving back.

Nu Skin celebrated its 30th anniversary by inviting its employees and sales leaders to perform local service aimed at helping children in need. The anniversary month kicked off with the company's annual Force for Good Day and continued with 30-days of giving through June. With the aim of creating smiles for children in need, the Nu Skin family's local outreach efforts ranged from assembling thousands of education kits to reaching out to chronically ill children.

"At the heart of our business is our mission to be a force for good by empowering people to improve lives, so it seemed fitting to celebrate our 30th anniversary by coming together to be a force for good in our local communities," said Truman Hunt, president and chief executive officer. "As we look forward to the next 30 years, we are optimistic about our ability to continue to improve people's lives through our innovative products, rewarding business opportunities, and uplifting culture."
