NU SKIN EXPANDS ITS AGELOC PRODUCT LINE WITH THE

LAUNCH OF AGELOC ME AND AGELOC YOUTH

Company’s global sales convention highlights new, customized skin care system 

and advanced nutritional supplement

 

PROVO, Utah—Oct. 8, 2015—Nu Skin Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE: NUS) today announced at its global sales convention the expansion of the company’s flagship anti-aging brand, ageLOC®, which has generated more than $5 billion in global sales since its introduction in 2008. The two new products include ageLOC Me, a unique anti-aging skin care system that provides a personalized daily regimen based on individual preferences and skin care needs, and ageLOC Youth, the company’s most advanced anti-aging supplement, which helps revitalize the body’s aging defense mechanisms to promote healthy aging.

 

“These two new products represent Nu Skin’s unique balance in both skin care and nutrition, capitalizing on our ability to provide consumers with product solutions that address the full spectrum of anti-aging,” said Truman Hunt, chief executive officer. “Our research and development team, as well as our product marketing group, have spent years developing, testing and refining these new ageLOC products, and we are happy to be introducing them to our global sales force.”

 

ageLOC Me

ageLOC Me brings together Nu Skin’s most advanced anti-aging skin care technology with a smart delivery device for a truly personalized daily skin care regimen. The smart device dispenses a customized regimen of anti-aging product based on a skin care self-assessment. The app-based assessment takes into account skin care needs, environmental factors and personal preferences to determine a customer’s specific set of products from almost 2,000 combinations.

 

Each day and night regimen is precisely dispensed to save time, reduce complexity and track usage for efficient application and effective results. Initial consumer studies indicate more than 90 percent of users found ageLOC Me made their daily skin care regimen more convenient and that it made sticking to a skin care routine easier.

 

“ageLOC Me represents the convergence of two important trends – the growing consumer demand for personalization and the growth in anti-aging skin care and home beauty devices,” said Dr. Joseph Chang, chief scientific officer. “The result is a truly unique product that provides an equally individualized experience. Nu Skin’s extensive experience and research in these areas provides customers a personalized skin care regimen from a single, smart device that is easy to use.”

 

ageLOC Youth

ageLOC Youth is a supplement that promotes the body’s natural ability to fight aging. Each ingredient, most of which are from foods not typically found in the everyday diet, was carefully selected for its unique health benefits and ability to positively impact gene expression. The result is a broad spectrum of anti-aging benefits that support many structures and functions in the body, such as cellular, brain, heart, metabolic, skin, bone and joint health. Its unique capsules allow both liquids and solids to be delivered together in a hard shell capsule, resulting in better bioavailability, reduced packaging and fewer capsules to consume.

 

“The development of ageLOC Youth brings together our latest research and understanding of the relationship among gene expression, antioxidants and nutrition,” said Dr. Chang. “As we increase our understanding of gene expression in aging, we can select the ingredients that positively impact the body’s ability to resist aging to help our customers enjoy life being more active, energetic and healthy.”

 

Availability

ageLOC Me and ageLOC Youth are being highlighted for Nu Skin’s global sales force this week at its 2015 Global Convention with subsequent region-specific introductions being staggered for the remainder of this year and throughout 2016.

 NU SKIN CONTINUES TO CONTRIBUTE ANTI-AGING RESEARCH TO THE SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY

Scientific posters, presentation and published article

add to scientific research on skin care

 

PROVO, Utah—Sept. 9, 2013—Nu Skin Enterprises continues to contribute to the body of scientific skin care research on the aging process by presenting  two scientific posters at the International Investigative Dermatology (IID), speaking at the HBA Global Expo and publishing an article in the June 2013 issue of Euro Cosmetics.

 

“It is an honor to have been invited to participate at such prestigious events throughout the world and be able to share with the scientific community our research findings,” said Dr. Helen Knaggs, Ph.D, vice president of research and development for Nu Skin personal care. “Gaining further insights into the role that our genes play in the aging process and continuing to develop anti-aging solutions will help us to continually refresh the vibrancy of the opportunity and products we offer.”

 

About the IID Scientific Posters
Every three years, the IID meeting brings together the European Society for Dermatological Research, Japanese Society for Investigative Dermatology and the Society for Investigative Dermatology into one high profile event for dermatologists and skin specialists around the world.  Two Nu Skin posters were accepted at this premier meeting showcasing some different aspects of the company’s scientific work. One of the posters focused on the effects of microcurrents with topical formulations on circulation and reducing the appearance of cellulite.

The second poster represented some of the team’s exploratory work related to several topical ingredients that have been identified for their ability to increase lipid accumulation. This relates to the loss of facial fat which leads to aging appearance of facial skin.

 

HBA Global Expo
Dr. Knaggs presented a session at HBA Global Expo in New York City that focused on product safety including regulatory updates and a cost savings approach.  The presentation was titled, “key points to know about required safety of your product” and focused on the complexities of creating safe products within the personal care industry and discussed what can be done, if anything, to mitigate issues that may arise with product use.

 

Euro Cosmetics
The June issue of Euro Cosmetics (vol. 21) featured an article titled, “Why Don’t I look Younger” and included some of Nu Skin’s anti-aging research as it relates to aging. The article focuses on changes in skin age, research on appearance of aging, and the effects of oral supplements on aging appearance.
