To Maintain a Fair and Orderly Market Environment, Please DO NOT Auction NU SKIN Products on the Internet

Abbie has been operating an online shop selling various brands of skin care products on an auction website. Due to the reasonable prices of the products and Abbie’s high efficiency, the online shop has won a lot of good comments from online shoppers and accumulated a group of regular customers. After joining NU SKIN, Abbie is impressed by the quality products of NU SKIN and ageLOC® anti-aging opportunity . She would like to promote NU SKIN’s quality products via the auction website in order to increase their marketability. Therefore, Abbie auctions NU SKIN ’s products on her online shop, without being aware that her practice has already violated NU SKIN ’s Policies and Procedures.

Auction website is an effective platform to promote products even if you stay at home. However, NU SKIN business is a "people-oriented" business which needs business partners to explain or demonstrate NU SKIN’s rewarding business opportunity, innovative products, enriching and uplifting culture and proper use and precautions of the products to customers face to face in order to spread and promote to others clearly and completely. Retailing NU SKIN products through auction websites is not a long-lasting way to run NU SKIN business, and consumers may misunderstand or misuse the products due to lack of communications, which may eventually lead to consumer disputes , or even damage to company's reputation. Moreover, if business partners sell our products to individuals who intend to resell the products through internet or other unauthorized channels, this behavior is equivalent to disrupting market order. Controllable acceleration, step by step and sustainable development is our common goal. NU SKIN hopes that everyone could comply with the rules of Use of Internet and jointly maintain a fair and orderly market environment to achieve the goal, because you are the power.

Relevant NU SKIN Policies and Procedures are extracted as below:
