Press Release | 9/18/2013

Los Angeles, CA September 17, 2013 -- On Saturday, September 14, Nerium International™ was a proud sponsor of Secret Room Events’ annual Red Carpet Style Lounge in Los Angeles, a style lounge honoring the nominees of the 65th Annual Emmys. During the lavish invite-only event, celebrities including Sofia Milos (“CSI: Miami”), Patrick Kilpatrick (“Minority Report”), Constance Zimmer (“Entourage”, “House of Cards”, “The Newsroom”), Christina Robinson (“Dexter”), and Michael Madsen (“Reservoir Dogs”) learned about the benefits of NeriumAD Age-Defying Treatment® and its exclusive, patented NAE-8 extract.

Honoring the 65th Primetime Emmys, the Red Carpet Style Lounge benefited the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Secret Room Events produces exclusive swag bags, award show gift lounges, and private events for Hollywood's most influential people. Their gift lounge was voted Best Gift Suite by The Huffington Post and was the only gift lounge chosen to be featured in a full page spread in OK! Magazine.

Attendees were greeted by representatives of Nerium International and educated on the patented NAE-8 extract derived from the Nerium oleander plant and multiple skincare concerns that the cream addresses such as the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, enlarged pores, and uneven skin texture.

Attendees lavished praise on NeriumAD, saying things such as: “The best thing is that it’s one product that addresses multiple concerns.” “It’s such a time saver to not have to have a system. I work all day long on set shooting, so simple = timesaver.” “I’m blown away by the before and after photos - 30 days or less!”

Nerium’s Directors of Field Operations and Gold International Marketing Directors, Mark and Tammy Smith, were on hand at the gifting suite. Said Mark, “I’m excited that we are natural, GMO free, paraben free, and cruelty free --- celebrities care about quality products that are natural, and it’s wonderful to represent such a first-class product at such a first-class event.”

Formulated after more than ten years of scientific research and clinical testing by scientists and medical professionals, NeriumAD is a night cream that addresses multiple skincare concerns at once, including the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, enlarged pores, aging skin, and uneven skin texture. The NAE-8 extract is a proprietary extract, derived by combining the best of both the Nerium oleander and Aloe barbadensis plants, and has been shown to have powerful antioxidant properties. Both plants have age-defying properties on their own, and combined they work to amplify the proprietary protein blend that helps the skin appear youthful and tight. The NAE-8 extract, with its powerful antioxidant properties, is exclusive to NeriumAD, which sets this product apart from others on the marketplace.

Both the safety and efficacy of NAE-8 extract has been tested, documented, and confirmed throughout every phase of product development and testing. Third-party research firm ST&T Research also performed five years of clinical trials on the safety and efficacy of NeriumAD. Using advanced facial scanning, their clinical trials showed a 30% average reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration over 30 days. They also completed extensive safety testing and analysis.

Nerium International Receives Award from Big Brothers Big Sisters

Press Release | 6/26/2013

DENVER, June 26, 2013 -- Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, recognizing the growth and importance of its corporate, foundation and media support has presented six of its distinguished partners with the national mentoring organization's National Partners Awards. Clear Channel Radio, Channel Radio, Beiersdorf USA, Thrive Foundation for Youth, Nerium International and NIKE Black Employees and Friends Network received their awards at Big Brothers Big Sisters' national conference in Denver, Colorado.

"We are privileged to have such a strong group of dedicated national partners, whose generous contributions have helped us build and maintain the systems that lead to the positive outcomes for which Big Brothers Big Sisters is known," said President and CEO Charles Pierson. "Our partners are a fundamental component to providing youth facing adversity with a healthier outlook, a brighter future with increased opportunities and ultimately better communities for all. We are extremely grateful for their ongoing commitment."

Big Brothers Big Sisters' Community Impact Award was presented to Nerium International. This award is given to a long-standing donor whose generosity has greatly impacted the community of the mentoring organization. Nerium International believes in investing in others, which is what inspired them to launch the Nerium Ripple, a program based on "individually taking responsibility, collectively change the world." Nerium has encouraged its independent representatives, known as Brand Partners, to join with Big Brothers Big Sisters in a variety of ways: becoming a Big, giving a percentage of their commissions and/or participating in local Bowl for Kids' Sakes events. Nerium and its Brand Partners have donated over $285,000 to Big Brothers Big Sisters nationally and locally over the past year and many have volunteered to be Bigs.

About Big Brothers Big SistersBig Brothers Big Sisters, the nation's largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, holds itself accountable for children in its program to achieve measurable outcomes, such as educational success; avoidance of risky behaviors; and higher aspirations, greater confidence and better relationships.

Big Brothers Big Sisters Youth Outcomes Survey Report reinforces the mentoring program's evidence base of positive academic, socio-emotional and behavioral outcomes for youth, areas linked to high school graduation, avoidance of juvenile delinquency and college or job readiness.

Big Brothers Big Sisters provides children facing adversity, often those of single or low-income households or families where a parent is incarcerated or serving in the military, with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one mentoring relationships that change their lives for the better, forever. This mission has been the cornerstone of the organization's 100-year history. With about 350 agencies across the country, Big Brothers Big Sisters serves nearly 630,000 children, volunteers and families. The organization is engaged in a nationwide search to reunite with alumni mentors, mentees, donors, and family, staff and board members.

Nerium International Receives 2012 Global 100 Bravo Award for Growth

Press Release | 4/4/2013

Addison, Texas April 04, 2013 -- The Global 100 Awards were initiated in 2010, honoring the top 100 direct selling companies in the world. In the same year, the Bravo Award for Growth was introduced. The Bravo Award is granted to the company with the greatest percentage of certified revenue increase over the prior year.

Nerium International, a company that markets breakthrough skin care products validated by science, is pleased to receive the 2012 Global 100 Bravo Award for Growth.

John Fleming, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of Direct Selling News, which publishes the Global 100 list, says, “In my many years in the industry, I do not think we have ever experienced a brand new company achieving $100 million in revenue in its first year of business. This achievement is a testimony to the leadership team, quality of product, service and support but also a tribute to the thousands of people who have chosen Nerium as customers and brand partners. This is really a remarkable accomplishment!”

Nerium International, which launched in 2011, did not launch in a rush. In fact, one of the company’s core values is to “slow down to go fast,” a concept that laid the foundation for the company’s phenomenal public reception.

Still, Nerium International’s CEO and Founder, Jeff Olson, was only willing to put his confidence in a product with more than a decade of research behind it. “My dream was to create the perfect direct sales company,” says Olson. “The combination of a long-range company mission, a well-planned business opportunity and a scientifically proven product allowed Nerium International to achieve the coveted Global Bravo Award for Growth.”

“Receiving this award really further validates the breakthrough product that NeriumAD is!” says co-Founder and Vice President of Marketing and Culture Amber Olson. “It is exciting for us to see the growth that comes from truly satisfied consumers, which in turn creates a fast-growing business for our brand partners.”

Brand partners, or those who sell the company’s flagship product, NeriumAD, are the primary focus of Nerium International. In fact, as President and co-Founder Dennis Windsor says, “Our management team is totally synched with the field. We listen, trust, empower and truly love our brand partners.”

While every successful business keeps a keen eye on its sales, Nerium International is about more than just the money. With programs such as Nerium Gives Back (to help boost brand partners’ financial success) and the Nerium Ripple (to make an active difference in others’ lives), along with the company’s partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, it’s clear that Nerium International has sought to offer authenticity and value from day one.

Nerium International Partners with Big Brothers Big Sisters of America

Press Release | 11/20/2012

Dallas, TX, November 19, 2012 -- When Nerium International’s Brand Partners launch their personal development journey with the Real Life Library and other achievement tools Nerium provides, a solid platform is built, one from which they can more comfortably and confidently reach out to help others.

Because Nerium reviews make it clear that the company is devoted to its vision of "Making People Better," The Nerium Ripple program was launched. This program challenges Brand Partners to individually take responsibility and collectively change the world. The Nerium Ripple’s core cause is to create positive change, or positive ripples, in everyday life; to create an environment that fuels camaraderie, sharing, and growth; and to pay it forward and create a better world in the process.

In an effort to further The Nerium Ripple program, in September 2012 Nerium partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, an organization that embodies Nerium’s belief in the "paying it forward" philosophy in a real and practical way. Co-Founder and VP of Marketing and Culture Amber Olson Rourke said, "The biggest ripple you can create is by impacting the life of another. Big Brothers Big Sisters is a natural extension of The Nerium Ripple. We look forward to seeing Nerium Brand Partners fill the need of 'Bigs' across the country and impacting their community in a 'big' way!"

Charles Pierson, president and Chief Executive Officer of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, said, “We are very excited about our new relationship with Nerium and its Brand Partners. Nerium International’s financial and volunteer support will allow us to carefully match more children who face adversity in long-term mentoring relationships to help them succeed in school and life.”

Lowell Perry, Vice President of corporate partnerships for Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, added: "It is very exciting when two organizations committed to personal enrichment lock arms and aims around a common cause. Big Brothers Big Sisters is providing a vehicle for Nerium Brand Partners to make a huge "ripple" that will ensure all children, regardless of current socio-economic status, will have that slight edge needed to embark on a successful pursuit of the American Dream. Big Brothers Big Sisters can only benefit from such a passionate group of Nerium Brand Partners. Throughout our nationwide mentoring network of more than 340 local affiliates, there’s a dedication to improving the lives of children. Combined with enthusiastic support from all levels of Nerium International, you end up with a recipe with the potential to have an unprecedented impact in the youth empowerment business."

Nerium reviews reveal that the company is dedicated to supporting the mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters with an ever-growing base of volunteers to fill the desperately needed role of “Bigs.” Thus far, more than 100 Nerium Brand Partners have volunteered to be “Bigs.” Additionally, Nerium is proud to be in a position to make impactful financial contributions to the national mentoring organization. To date, Nerium International has raised more than $70,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters, with a goal of $100,000 in donations by the end of 2012.

The mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters is to foster positive and enduring one-to-one mentor relationships with children facing adversity.

Nerium AD Age Defying Treatment Featured in Beautiful You Magazine

Press Release | 11/7/2012

DALLAS, TX November 06, 2012 -- Favorable Nerium reviews are plentiful, as this is the latest accolade for a company that has been featured in several publications after breaking sales records in its first year. That’s what happens when a product is clinically proven to make a significant impact on the appearance of aging skin.

In assessing the reasons for the popularity of this product, Nerium International’s Founder and CEO, Jeff Olson, points to the Nerium skin care science behind the company’s flagship product, NeriumAD. “While researching the uses of the Nerium oleander plant, Nerium Biotechnology, Inc. made an accidental discovery: Nerium oleander possesses unique qualities that produce remarkable age-defying results when applied to the skin. By partnering with Nerium Biotechnology, we’re able to bring an exclusive product to market. Our purpose is to build a global brand of breakthrough products in the anti-aging skincare market.”

In third-party clinical trials with globally renowned ST&T Research, NeriumAD produced a 20%-60% reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration. This revolutionary breakthrough has resulted in high customer satisfaction, fantastic Nerium skin care reviews, and exponential growth.

As Nerium oleander has never before been harnessed in skincare products, NeriumAD has been subjected to extensive safety testing. At the recent North American Congress of Clinical Toxicology (NACCT) meeting, there were discussions about the safety of NeriumAD.

In a memo about the NACCT meeting, Nerium Biotechnology’s CEO, Dennis Knocke, shared that a leading MD, Ph.D., medical pharmacologist and toxicologist reported the following regarding the safety of NeriumAD: “As a result of the studies, the study design, and data captured, NeriumAD has no evidence of toxicity and no absorption into the systemic circulation.”

Nerium International has been highlighted in an array of publications, including being the youngest company to ever be featured in industry leader Success from Home magazine. Nerium reviews are glowing, and appearing in Beautiful You will likely lead to more of the same.

Amber Olson Rourke, vice president of marketing and culture for Nerium International, says, “Beautiful You is a third-party publication geared toward women. It provides inspiration on a wide range of topics, such as beauty, fitness, career, health, and personal development, to help you be beautiful both inside and out. We are honored that they chose NeriumAD to be their featured product for their premiere issue.”

Nerium International Expanding to Puerto Rico

Press Release | 2/1/2012

Addison, TX February 01, 2012 -- Nerium™ International, LLC of Addison, TX is pleased to announce the opening of business operations in Puerto Rico as of February 1, 2012. Says Founder and CEO Jeff Olson, “Our goal from day one has been to build a global business opportunity for our leaders.”

Nerium International has enjoyed robust growth in its first five months of existence. “We have already reached financial heights that only a small percentage of companies in this industry ever realize,” says Olson. Nerium International is also the youngest company to ever be featured in Success from Home magazine.

In addition to the expansion of business, states Olson, “We are in the process of converting marketing and training materials into several languages, and Spanish is the first. With over 40 million Spanish-speaking people in the United States, Puerto Rico is a natural extension for our eventual global expansion. We’re especially encouraged by the enthusiasm of our current Brand Partners who have connections in Puerto Rico.”

According to Trevor Scofield, Senior Vice President of Global Operations, “You can signup Brand Partners and Customers in Puerto Rico as easily as you can sign up your neighbor.”

Nerium International and Nerium SkinCare™, Inc., a subsidiary of Nerium Biotechnology, Inc. ®, of San Antonio, TX enjoy an exclusive licensing partnership. This partnership was designed with the purpose of building a global brand through the development and distribution of breakthrough products in the anti-aging skincare market.

Founded in 2006, Nerium Biotechnology, Inc. was created to fund research focused on new technology and applications of the Nerium oleander plant, with ongoing research at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, the University of Texas at San Antonio, ST&T Research, and Louisiana State University. Use of the Nerium oleander plant has been identified in ancient texts and folklore for more than 1,500 years, but it wasn’t until the last century that the scientific community took interest in researching its properties. While researching the uses of the Nerium oleander plant, Nerium Biotechnology, Inc. made an accidental discovery: Nerium oleander possesses unique qualities that produce remarkable age-defying results when applied to the skin. This discovery, with product development through Nerium SkinCare, Inc., led to the creation of the NeriumADTM skincare line.

In 2009, Nerium SkinCare, Inc. was developed as a division of Nerium Biotechnology, Inc. to provide for research, new product development, formulation, testing, and manufacturing of all skincare applications, including the patent-pending Nerium oleander extract, NAE-8™. In 2011, Nerium International partnered with Nerium SkinCare, Inc. to build a global, first-of-its-kind skincare line based on a strong, scientific foundation.

The direct sales industry generates $132 billion per year, and skincare is the dominant category in the industry. “Based on our initial success, and due to the revolutionary nature of NeriumAD, we look forward to future growth along the same trajectory of success we’ve enjoyed thus far.”

The company has aggressive plans for both product development and further global expansion.
