2020

Global Media Guide

Last year, Amway’s 60th anniversary celebration (A60) gave us the opportunity to celebrate our past achievements while looking ahead to our 70th to unleash entrepreneurship for the next generation. This year, we are excited to invest in digital platforms, product innovation and independent Amway Business Owners (ABO) compensation, all to drive global enterprise growth and enable ABOs to turn their passions into profit and support the needs of their customers.

We will get there by building on our strengths — the entrepreneurial spirit of ABOs, the vibrant communities they’ve built, our product development expertise and the values established by Amway’s founding families. Our purpose unwaveringly remains helping people live better, healthier lives and we are committed to doing just that as we look to A70 and beyond.

Nutrition

Traceability is ingrained in the Nutrilite™ brand’s DNA and ensures supplements that are pure, safe and effective. While industry standards state the “traceability” of an ingredient is knowing one step before and one step after an ingredient’s journey, the Nutrilite™ brand requires much deeper visibility, and, in the case of botanicals, down to the farm level. Through this stringent traceability process, customers can be assured that their Nutrilite™ supplements contain exactly what the label says — no more, no less.

Safety is also a key component of Nutrilite™ products’ traceability story. The company meticulously tracks each step of the process from start to finish and has rigorous rules in place to help protect products from even the slightest threat of contamination. No one in the world cares or invests as much as Amway does to ensure the purest ingredients, manufactured in the safest way so that people can have confidence in their vitamins and supplements.

Sustainability

Nutrilite™ operates nearly 6,000 acres of certified organic farmland in the U.S., Mexico and Brazil, where we grow, harvest and process plants using sustainable farming methods.

Beauty

The Artistry™ brand uses the best of science and nature to create personalized beauty solutions for every skin type across the world.

Then our scientists take the best part of the plants, in the perfect amounts, for the most effective formulas.

Today, almost all our Artistry™ skincare products include acerola cherry, a vitamin C superstar for skin antiaging, sourced from our certified organic farm in Brazil. We combine these powerful botanicals with the learnings from our analysis of 32,000 faces from all over the world to ensure we have solutions for every person’s unique skin needs.

Quality & Innovation

Business Opportunity

From the beginning, the promise of Amway has never wavered. Amway helps anyone with the entrepreneurial spirit–and the desire — to build a business of their own, selling high-quality products that support healthy lifestyles, and helping others to do the same. The outcome is people who are more in control and empowered to make choices for themselves, which means their business revolves around their life, instead of their life revolving around their business.

This outcome is more important today than ever before. Today’s entrepreneurs want to run their businesses on the go from wherever they are. They want data and tools that are only a swipe away and they want to sell products that are digitally connected. Amway offers all of this — and more.

Participation

More than 4 million online learning activities were utilized by Amway Business Owners in 2019.

Satisfaction Guaranteed

100% satisfaction guarantee on Amway products and the business opportunity.

Digital Products & Tools

$200 million USD was invested towards innovating digital products and tools in 2019.

Incentives

Corporate Social Responsibility

Sharing our expertise to help people live better lives.

At Amway, we believe in going beyond the traditional ways of doing business to help people live better lives. We accomplish global results by:

Empowerment
The Nutrilite™ Power of 5 Campaign celebrated its fifth birthday in 2019. As a leader in nutrition, Amway developed the Power of 5 Campaign to fight childhood malnutrition by providing Nutrilite™ Little Bits™, a micronutrient powder, to families of hundreds of thousands of malnourished children. When mixed with their food once a day, Nutrilite™ Little Bits™ adds essential nutrients that help them survive, thrive and grow.

Engagement
In keeping with our values, we encourage our Amway ABOs and employees to support charities and organizations that mirror their passions and impact their local communities in a powerful way.

Environment
Since the formulation of our first product in 1950, Amway has been focused on sustainability. Continuous improvement efforts are furthering our commitment to reducing waste and water consumption, choosing renewal energy sources and organic farming practices. We want to recycle to the greatest extent possible and to reduce the amount of waste created by operations. And we even have environmental goals for the companies who supply us products, so we can trace all of our raw ingredients for Nutrilite™ supplements back to their roots.

Power of 5

In 2019, 400,000 ABOs and Amway employees were engaged in the Power of 5 Campaign and another 483,000 people supported Amway efforts globally.

Making a Difference

More than 700,000 women, children and families were impacted through Amway efforts globally in 2019.
