Natures Sunshine Products



Company Profile

In the early 70s, Gene Hughes, a Utah school teacher, began experiencing a nagging stomach condition. He took the advice of a neighbor who suggested cayenne pepper for his discomfort. It worked! Soon Gene began feeling much better, but swallowing a spoonful of cayenne pepper was awful. That’s when his wife, Kristine, suggested putting the powder into easy-to-swallow gelatin capsules. It was revolutionary! Gene and Kristine soon enlisted the support of family—Dick and Pauline Hughes and Jay and Arva Hughes—to begin a small family business, selling encapsulated cayenne and other herbs and supplements to health food stores.

The family soon realized they wanted to touch more lives with their products, and they found the perfect vehicle for making this happen—direct marketing. This business model allowed them to educate consumers about the vitamin supplement products and provided their sales force an opportunity to share in the success of the company. Today Nature’s Sunshine Products (NSP) can be found in 30 countries, represented by nearly 600,000 distributors.


Nature’s Sunshine has been recognized for a variety of achievements:
  • In 2001, NSP was recognized as one of the best public companies to work for by Utah Business Magazine. This was based on several criteria, including employee benefits, work environment, 401(k), etc.
  • Business Ethics has listed Nature’s Sunshine in its Top 100 Corporate Citizens for four years straight, 2003-2006.
  • In 2002, Nutritional Outlook magazine named Nature’s Sunshine Manufacturer of the Year for its outstanding quality and manufacturing excellence.
  • In October 2004, Selling Power ranked NSP number 8 in America’s 500 Largest Sales Forces—Direct Sales.
