Worldwide Collaborations

Over the years, Nu Skin has partnered with scientific institutions around the world to research and develop cutting-edge products and technologies.


Recently, Nu Skin developed two key research partnerships with Stanford University and LifeGen Technologies. Researchers at Stanford have focused on profiling gene expression during human development and aging, and they have also explored novel modes of gene control in aging skin.


In addition, Nu Skin is the only direct selling company to partner with LifeGen Technologies, a company backed by over 30 years of expertise in methods for extending life, whose founders have published more than 200 scientific papers. Our exclusive partnership with LifeGen Technologies gives Nu Skin access to more than 30 years of research into the genetic basis of aging. LifeGen's pioneering research combined with Nu Skin's ongoing research will allow us to use this knowledge to develop innovative, proprietary products far into the future.


LifeGen Partnership:


Nu Skin has signed a research, license and development agreement with LifeGen Technologies to collaborate on anti-aging research that supports the company’s product strategy to target the sources of aging. More specifically, the relationship with LifeGen adds significant fuel to Nu Skin’s scientific engine with the exclusive advantage to continue to identify youth gene clusters and develop additional proprietary methods to reset gene activity to more youthful patterns.   


Stanford Partnership:


Nu Skin has worked with Stanford University since 1999 and this latest agreement is a multi-year extension of our ongoing collaboration. Nu Skin and Stanford University will collaborate on anti-aging, developmental biology and dermatological research that supports the company’s unique anti-aging strategy to target the sources of aging. More specifically, the relationship with Stanford gives Nu Skin scientists the opportunity to collaborate with notable and highly credentialed scientists for basic and applied research on innovative insights into why and how skin ages, translate these insights from basic science into human application and provide additional opportunities to publish and present scientific papers.
