Are your products vegan friendly?
At Nu Skin, we do not say or claim that our products are suitable for vegans. This is because there are products that contain animal bi-product ingredients, for example Sunright Lip Balm, which contains bee's wax.
Our Pharmanex supplements have not been formulated to be free of animal ingredients or animal by-products (unless otherwise specified). The process of confirming whether a product is suitable for a vegetarian is not as simple as simply looking at the ingredient. Unfortunately, raw ingredients suppliers are not required to track the plant versus animal origin of excipients (helper ingredients), unless Pharmanex/Nu Skin specifies the need for a vegan/vegetarian version of the ingredient. At the present time it is difficult to certify with absolute certainty that there have been no animal derived ingredients used at some point in the manufacturing process of the raw ingredient, before the raw ingredients are purchased by Pharmanex/Nu Skin. However, we can confirm that all ingredients used in Pharmanex products meet our stringent quality specifications according to the 6S quality process and legal regulations.
Regarding our Pharmanex products, the capsules that we use for some of the supplements (R2, TR90, Tēgreen, etc.) are made from a mixture of porcine and bovine (pork and cow) therefore, they are not vegan friendly. The supplements that are in tablet form, for example: LifePak+, BioGinko and OverDrive, all have a very thin coating of gelatine. This gelatine is made from fish. The reason they have a coating is for safety reasons. It makes them easier to swallow. This type of coating is also used on some types of medicine and other brands of supplements.
Do you test on animals?
Nu Skin advocates and subscribes to both the ethical and humane treatment of animals and the protection of human health and safety.
Nu Skin Products
Nu Skin does not test its cosmetic products on animals, nor do we request others to test on our behalf, except when mandated by the law and regulatory agencies. We evaluate our products in clinical tests on human volunteer panels to ensure the efficacy and safety of our products.
When it comes to the company's nutritional products, Nu Skin adheres to the same philosophy. Nu Skin nutritional and herbal products are consumed internally, and as a result, some government regulatory agencies may require animal research to support human safety and product efficacy. In cases when it is necessary to conduct animal studies, we make every effort to do so ethically and humanely and adhere to the applicable and approved government -treatment protocols.
Can I use your products if I am pregnant or breast feeding?
As much as we would like to help, we are unfortunately not able to advise if any of our products are suitable for use during pregnancy or whilst breastfeeding. This is because we have not tested any of our products on pregnant women or women who are breastfeeding.
We do not think that they would have an adverse effect as many women continue to take supplements and use creams during pregnancy/breastfeeding. However, we would advise you to consult your GP to be sure, as we are aware especially with supplements during pregnancy you are recommended to take a specific amount. When going to the GP, take a copy of the Product Information Page (PIP) for the product you are interested in using, which will show the GP what the product is and its ingredients. This will then help the GP to see if this product is suitable to be taken during pregnancy and breastfeeding, especially if you also have any other conditions or medication.
Which products can my child use?
A great product to use on your little one is our Epoch Baby Hibiscus Hair and Body Wash. Unfortunately, the rest of our products are produced and tested on those who are aged 18 and older.
Which Pharmanex products can my child take?
Except for JVi, which is suitable for all ages, our Pharmanex products are produced only for those who are fully developed. Therefore, we only recommend taking our supplements at the ages of 18 and older.
Can I combine different Pharmanex products?
Yes, but this is dependent on the formulas available in your country. Please contact your local Product Support for recommended dosages and combinations.
I have a medical condition, which Pharmanex products can I take?
We are unfortunately not able to advise if any of our products are suitable for any kind of medical condition, illness or skin condition, or pregnancy. This is because Nu Skin is not a medical company and therefore have not tested any of our products on such individuals. All our products are tested on healthy individuals with intact healthy skin. We would advise you to take a copy of the Product Information Pages or the ingredient list to your GP. Based on this information, your GP should be able to determinate if the product is safe and suitable with consideration to your specific medical condition, allergy or any medication you might be consuming in conjunction with our products.
